Memory Flash training is commonplace technique among cloning companies. It is a process by which the brain patterns of the template are scanned and then uploaded into the clone through a series of memory “flashes.” Through Memory Flash training, a clone can pick up many of the skills and expertises of the template. However, this process is still poorly understood and can result in the manifestation of psychosis in clones.

Applied to droids, however, the story is different. Scientists in the employ of the Helix Syndicate scanned the memories of thousands of experts and military professionals. Instead of zapping them into the blank minds of clones, they converted them into something readable by a droid brain. A largely automated process then attempts to remove all memories not immediately pertinent to the program being developed.

Instead of just having knowledge of something and the ability to recall it, the droid possesses the sum of years and years of experience and expertise. And not just of one person, either. A single subroutine may contain composites of the memories of well over a dozen individuals, all catalogued into the same subroutine. This can have some interesting results, described in more detail elsewhere in this submission.

  • [Strength] Probably the most advanced, versatile, and ludicrously thorough droid programming ever conceived, much less developed.
  • [Weakness] Only compatible with Epicurus-Class Droid Brains, works best with humanoid droids.
  • [Weakness] More prone to personality generation due to “residue” from memory flash programming.
  • [Weakness] Personality generation cannot easily be prevented or resolved through memory wipes. More invasive and time-consuming procedures are necessary.

Good droids must have the good programming, and so the Pythagoras-Class Droid Programming Suite was developed. Originally a project launched by Dynamic Automata, the Helix Syndicate took control of the accumulated research shortly after dismantling the company and absorbing some of its key assets.

When a droid is developed, the programming included with it is often highly customized, unique to that droid. This makes programming costly to develop for each droid. But now this is no longer necessary for the most part, thanks to the Pythagoras-Class. The modularity of the Pythagorean programming enables it to adapt any droid to of task, removing the need to develop new programming for each droid that is developed.

The process by which the Pythagoras-Class was created is a closely guarded trade secret, but countless legions of experts throughout the galaxy contributed to its development and can personally attest to its quality. Or they would, if they were not sworn to secrecy. The programming suite consists of three distinct modules: C2, A2, and B2.

The C2 Baseline Module is the fundamental building block for the Pythagoras-Class Droid Programming Suite. It is included, for free, in all droids with the Pythagorean programming. This enables the droid to both defend itself and handle basic tasks without the need for any advanced subroutines. It can be installed alongside either without performance issues being experienced. The A2 Civilian Module contains all of the knowledge pertinent to civilian lifestyles and jobs. Example subroutines for the A2 Module would be engineering, public administration, and accounting. The B2 Combat Module contains all of the knowledge pertinent to military and combat operations. Example subroutines include close quarters combat, tactical proficiencies, and demolitions expertise.

There are no restrictions on the sales of A2 and C2 Modules. B2 Modules, however, are available only available at the discretion of the manufacturer.

It is possible to have a droid with all three modules installed without any performance issues. It is naturally possible to mix and match any number of subroutines. However, A2 and B2 Modules are only capable of containing four subroutines at any given time. If this number is exceeded on either module, the droid will begin to malfunction and otherwise behave strangely.

Some might ask what the point is of developing droid programming for, say, art history. Or philosophy. The most prudent answer is simply: “because we can, we want to, and we just did.” For posterity's sake, the following spoiler contains a comprehensive list of more subroutines. Those marked with an asterisk are more likely to display aberrant personality traits.
