    Is the protocol droid in the tower fortress, where Jabba's son is being held, 4-LOM the bounty hunter droid seen in The Empire Strikes Back?

    As much as I wish it were, I'm afraid not.

    Our friend was 4A-7

    4-LOM

    4A-7

    Close, but they're two different types of protocol droid.

    EDIT: ^ I was beaten...

    Nope, he is 4A-7, a predecessor to teh RA-7 protocol droid seen in ANH aboard the sandcrawler and Death Star.

    A nice connection is that many of those RA droids were used by the ISB to spy on Imperial officers for acts of disloyalty, and here we have 4A-7 essentially acting as a spy on the Republic forces on Teth.

    EDIT- Not fast enough.

    How could he be in ESB when he was destroyed in TCW. I know you can repair a droid, but would anyone really go up there just to grab a broken droid?

    3PO was a main character, he actually had a purpose.

    This droid had served his purpose- poor comic relief. I don't even know how they got up there in the first place. Did that droid jump on one of those bird thingys.

    He wasn't comic relief- he was there to spy.

    What were the droids actually doing on that freighter? Did I miss something?

    It was called a spice freighter, but had meds aboard for a Huttling. My assumption was it was going to be used to take Rotta from Teth to Tatooine, under the disguise of a spice freighter delivering a shipment to Jabba.

    I really liked 4A-7, he had these weird mesmerizing voice and mannerisms.
