If you’re one of the small population of Americans currently in comas or encased in metal vaults, you may not have yet seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens. So, if you want to avoid spoilers, consider yourself warned. Though, to be fair, this particular spoiler is such a painfully geeky detail no one would possibly care. It’s about a droid.
Now, droids are a big deal in the Star Wars universe, both in our boring-ass reality and the fictitious, more exciting one of the movies. It was a big deal when, for example, BB-8 was revealed, as a new type of astromech droid (you know, like R2-D2) hasn’t appeared in any Star Wars movie since they started in 1977. Of course, BB-8 is the standout new droid here. But there’s actually another new-to-the movies kind of astromech, and if you blink, you’ll miss it.
