Class Summary[edit | edit source]

While some beings are skilled when it comes to computers, only Technicians can truly master technology. Whether the techie works with the law, against the law, or around the law, they can usually find employment with anyone. Their abilities are especially prized on metropolis worlds where computers and Droids run everything, but they also get by on Rim worlds.
