I am writing a story from the perspective of a Star Wars mouse droid (seen on Death Star). Are there any good resources (short stories, cross-sections, interviews, concept sketches, etc.) which reveal the mouse droid's internals?

Specifically, I am wondering if mouse droids have a video sensor.




  • Star Wars - The Essential Guide to Droids (published in 1999) has mouse droid details including diagrams in pages 124/125. (I didn't check "The new Essential Guide" from 2003 but presumably it has that too).

  • Cynabar's Fantastic Technology: Droids RPG sourcebook has some details

  • For less rigorous but more volumnous secondary source, Wookieepedia:

    MSE-6 ; MSE series ; MSF Series


The droid had electro-photoreceptors and auditory sensor and miniature holocam.

  • Curses. You beat me to it. Admittedly. I got sidetracked for 20+ minutes reading my new "Star Wars - Complete Locations" book. – Valorum Jan 17 '16 at 19:45
  • @Richard - wait for 2 more days and I'm gone :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 17 '16 at 19:50
  • Is there a specific date/time that you're waiting for? Just wondering... – Valorum Jan 17 '16 at 19:53
  • @Richard - yes, the end of long weekend :) I keep trying to clean up my mega answers but keep getting either discouraged or distracted :) – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 17 '16 at 19:55
  • I recall to have controlled a mouse droid in Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast, if briefly. That too would suggest the unit possesses optical and auditory sensors. – VerpinZal Jan 19 '16 at 20:15
