The on-board computer of the Millenium Falcon.

For some unknown reason, it needs a protocol droid to interface/communicate with it in order to provide routine maintenence.

 Quoting: William_the_Bloody


If I recall correctly, The Falcon was operated by no less than 3 slaved droid brains in what I assume is the equivalent of using bubblegum and chicken wire nowadays. Since these were just salvaged from wherever they could be found, they each used to do different things than they were being tasked to do... "Lifting this--*Ion thruster in pre-flight mode*--ERROR!" "Mix 5 cups of--*Direct particle flow to forward shields*--bake at--*1,000,000k Power Core Max:0010010=Divert to Exterior_Venting_94*--and voilla! Perfect Algorin Neckroot.--*Self Destruct Activated*--"

But I digress...
