Ok, why is this article to be deleted? It seems to be perfectly valid in-universe stuff. Who would want R2D2's predecessor deleted? Narvi 05:13, 3 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • It's the template being deleted... never mind, fixed. - Sikon [Talk] 05:15, 3 Nov 2005 (UTC)


I'm on vacation currently, but I'm pretty sure the Essential Guide to Droids says the R2 series was the first popular astromech droid. And R1's and P1s were before it and much larger, and only suitable for capital ships and large freighters. And T3 is referred to as a utility droid most of the time. I think this is enough to remove all occurences of astromech and replace with utility. Linkman95 00:18, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I think you may have a point. Could anyone with the game installed check what his class is? --Imp 00:24, 21 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I've changed all occurences if Astromech Droid I could find to the more correct Utility Droid. - The Doctor
  • There were a couple more occurences in the profile I changed. BaronGrackle 09:04, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
  • It pains me to admit that, if you choose T3-M4 to save your party on the Leviathan a Sith trooper refers to T3 as an "astromech droid". This is the only occurrence I know of where he's specifically called such. Since Janice Nall does call him a "utility droid", and he never does any active repair work on a ship or fighter, and he doesn't look like an astromech droid, perhaps we can attribute the trooper's remark to a mistake? -BaronGrackle 14:31, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Atton will also call T3 an astromech droid after T3 raids Voggas Warehouse. --Redemption 02:26, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Actually, in KOTOR II, T3 repairs the Ebon Hawk at the beginning of the game.--Anachronism 21:42, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Armament Edit

Just noticed the Armament thing there, and I thought, shouldn't it include the unlimited-use Droid Shock Arm he had in KOTOR2? I loved using that thing in-game, it was useful on Peragus.

Also, how about two of the items you could get later that only he could use: Droid Self-Sustaining Unit and Droid Renewable Shield? Unsigned comment by ScyStorm (talk • contribs).

Pic Edit

Can someone add a pic about T3 being damaged by an unknown enemy on Pergus? It would make an interesting image.

  • "He" never really admits to it, but it stands to reason that it was HK-50 who shot T3 on Peragus... as all other "organics" were terminated... Of course it might not have been HK-50 directly as he had some degree control over the droids on the facility. -Kath.Hound 8:24, 17 June 2007

Gendered pronouns? Edit

I disagree with the use of a gendered pronoun for a droid, especially a non-humanoid droid. I'm going to make a switch to the non-gendered pronoun "it" or just use "T3-M4" or "the droid". Please reply if you disagree. // fodigg BlackRebelStarbird 18:38, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Droids have long been associated with either masculine or feminine programming. Its perfectly acceptable to use gendered pronouns for droids—canonical works (like novels) do it all the time. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 18:41, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
    • Granted, but that usually only happens when a droid has specific indications of gender. I don't really see that with T3-M4. It's a robot that beeps and whistles. // fodigg BlackRebelStarbird 18:48, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
      • That's not necessarily true; R2-D2 is considered masculine. At any rate, I've located a source for T3-M4's "gender."—The New Essential Guide to Droids. Here's the quote: "Five standard years later, T3-M4 reappeared aboard the abandoned freighter Ebon Hawk, where he fell into the company of the heroine known as the Jedi Exile." I'll add a reference note to the infobox now. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 19:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
        • Sounds reasonable. Is that the general guideline for determining gendered programming? The use of a gendered pronoun by narrator or by other character in a work? If so, we should probably expand on it in the gender article. // fodigg BlackRebelStarbird 19:37, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
          • Any canonical source that defines the gender of an individual or droid is considered usable material, regardless of whether the source is OOU or IU. Atarumaster88 Jedi Order (Talk page) 19:43, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
            • Has there ever been a case of conflicting gender pronouns used for the same droid? // fodigg BlackRebelStarbird 22:18, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Personality Edit

I think T3-M4 should had a Personality Section. --Cococrash11 05:37, September 20, 2011 (UTC)
