T0-B1 Lightsaber in Visions
Around 19 BBY, the droid boy T0-B1 resides on a planet with a human male named Mitaka. Mitaka operates a lab, dreaming of terraforming the planet to make it a beautiful place. Mitaka, who refers to T0-B1, the astromech droid C03, and the other droids as “his children”, repeatedly warns the droids to avoid the basement.
T0-B1 dreams of one day becoming a Jedi and fight evil. Mitaka advises to T0-B1 to seek out a kyber crystal, the heart of a lightsaber, saying there is one kyber crystal on the planet. T0-B1 searches the planet far and wide but cannot locate a crystal. Mitaka tells him to clear his mind and use the Force. T0-B1 continues searching the next day, unsuccessfully trying to use the Force to aid his quest.
T0-B1 eventually decides to search the forbidden basement, claiming the area is the only place he hasn’t looked. He finds a skyhopper and issues a message to all Jedi. His message draws the attention of the Imperial. The Empire dispatches a Inquisitor, a Jedi hunter, to the planet. Mitaka gives T0-B1 two lightsabers and hides him (T0-B1 learns that Mitaka had been a Jedi). The Inquisitor finds and strikes down Mitaka.
Constructing a Lightsaber
T0-B1 and C03 rebuild the damaged lab and pursue Mitaka’s dream of terraforming the planet. T0-B1 eventually constructs his own lightsaber from salvaged parts, finding a kyber crystal within his own body. The completed lightsaber features duel emitter shrouds and emits a cyan blade.
The same Inquisitor who killed Mitaka returns to the planet and engages T0-B1 in a lightsaber duel. During the ensuing battle, the Inquisitor cuts off one of T0-B1’s arm. The other droids on the planet attempt to help T0-B1 in battle–the Inquisitor cuts several of the droids down.
T0-B1 eventually defeats the Inquisitor. The droids celebrate the victory. T0-B1 and C03 board the skyhopper and leave the now-green and vibrant planet. T0-B1 hopes to continue Mitaka’s work and help people on other planets.
