R-97 Quartermaster Droid
|The R-97 series of droids was produced jointly by Bossikan Industries and Rendili StarDrive. A rare venture into droid manufacturing by the starship manufacturer, this particular model surprised the droid market with a quartermaster capable of monitoring and maintaining inventories successfully.
The R-97 series comes with telescoping legs that allow it to increase its height to a full three meters to help in tracking inventory that may be stored higher than most organics can reach unaided.
The one R-97 droid found on the Farstar is one of the more interactive droids aboard, mainly due to the fact that he barters with members of the crew before allocating equipment. Actually, he tries to talk the crew out of obtaining certain items to "preserve the ship's stores" or even attempt to tell them that a particular item is out of stock when ample quantities exist in storage.
R-97 is so protective of the ship's inventory that he goes so far as to post SE-4 servant droids and J9 worker droids as guards to prevent any "unauthorized raids" of any of the various supply areas throughout the ship. Even though the guards may not put up much of a fight to protect their charge, they will report any incursions to R-97. Since the quartermaster only follows orders directly from the captain of the ship (and R-97 even tries to find ways around them if he holds a grudge against the person requesting supplies), it is highly suggested to the crew that they stay on the droid's good side if they wish to get what they want.
