TQ3-R1 was a droid with silver and yellow plating and a gray sensor. It had two legs, a cylindrical body, and a dome-shaped head.[1] In 35 ABY,[2] the droid was on the planet Kijimi[3] in the Thieves' Quarter[1] workshop of the droidsmith Babu Frik,[3] a member of the Spice Runners of Kijimi.[1]

The droid was stood amidst a pile of other droids besides an oil bath near the steps down into the workshop when a group of Resistance agents brought the protocol droid C-3PO in for a complete redacted memory bypass. Not long after the agents left, the entire planet of Kijimi was destroyed by the Final Order, although Frik managed to escape beforehand.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

TQ3-R1 first appeared in the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker,[3] and was first identified in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1]

  2. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker occur thirty-five years after the Battle of Yavin. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Yavin to 0 BBY, the events of The Rise of Skywalker, which includes TQ3-R1's appearance, must occur in 35 ABY.
