WEll whatever you say, I liked DArk Empire because it was the first EU stuff I ever read. And it started the entire Ulic Qel-Droma old sith thing didnt it? So without DE wed never have KOTOR. Or maybe that was the Kyp Durron/Admiral Daala story, I never remember. Mybe theytook Exar from Kyp and Ulic from DE and tied it all together. I dunno.
And back on topic, Jedi Master Arka Jeth reassembles the inside of the Droids, changing all the wires around and everything, with telekinesis, to disable droids when hes fighting the Krath on Deneba or wherever it was.
