I've been on Geonosis 100 days, 200 in galactic time, yet I suddenly can't stand it here. We all know droids can't think, can't learn, and can't feel, but last week I saw something I can't explain.
We had just conducted a bombing raid against the Separatists. I was out with a scouting party surveying the remains, when I saw a lone droid standing in the wreckage. I watched it set it's blaster in the sand and pick up a mechanical arm blown off a destroyed enemy. It carried the arm like a sacred artifact to the charred fragments of another droid, the very one the arm belonged to I now realize. For a while it just stood there, staring down as if in grief. The image has haunted me ever since, perhaps because I shot that saddened droid.
