From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A cybernetic replacement was any biomechanical device used to replace body parts ranging from internal organs to limbs. Prosthetic replacements were connected to organic tissue via a complex synthennet neural interface, which provided the recipient with control and sensation. External replacements were often covered by synthflesh to emulate actual organic tissue.

The galaxy had centuries of advanced technology at its disposal. Among them were the ability to replace and, for a price, modify and enhance the body. Cloning was expensive and, given the horrors of the Clone Wars, illegal on most planets after the era. Some limited regeneration of limbs was considered acceptable but there were medical dangers involved with a science that had, for obvious reasons, not seen much development in later decades after the Clone Wars. For the majority of galactic citizens, cybernetic replacements were the cheap, effective, legal, and safe solution to unfortunate and severe physical injuries.

For those willing to make the sacrifice of flesh and expense, the body could be "upgraded" to allow for additional skills and abilities. Some were very innocuous, the Shepherd chip issued to military service members for instance. Others involved modifying the limbs and internal systems of the potential patient. As with everything in the galaxy, this came at a potential price, in credits and in the potential loss of self. Someone could easily go too far in attempting to be "more human than human."

When flesh failed—and sometimes even before that—cybernetics took over. Prosthetic limbs and replacement organs powered by batteries and controlled by electrical impulses were the low end of these procedures with sophisticated cybernetic hardware designed to improve or augment the recipient's body and mind at the high end of the scale.

Two major kinds of cybernetic attachments existed in the galaxy: replacements and enhancements.

Replacements: Replacements were prosthetic or artificial units intended to replace lost limbs and damaged organs. Common replacements provided no benefits other than duplicating the essential functions of their biological counterparts, and they presented little strain on the beneficiary's overall wellbeing. In appearance, a cybernetic replacement could be recognizably artificial or virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Example: Rianna Saren's cybernetic lekku. Enhancements: Enhancements bestowed new abilities or improved the recipient in some fashion. Enhancements included skeletal reinforcement, subcutaneous communications hardware, and weapon mounts. Some enhancements had visible external components, while others were hidden beneath the skin. Enhancements put more of a drain on the body's resources, and recipients frequently suffered debilitating physical or mental side effects. Example: General Grievous' replacement body.

Subjects of cybernetic replacements/enhancements

Many beings had prosthetic replacements throughout galactic history. Several beings were well known for employing unique or extensive prosthetics.

  • Darth Malak, a Dark Lord of the Sith during the Old Republic, had a prosthetic voice box that he used to speak, as well as a metallic jaw.
  • Rianna Saren, a Twi'lek mercenary who had one of her lekku cut off, had a prosthetic replacement fitted.
  • GeneralGrievous was forced to have almost his entire body replaced by cybernetic parts after a near-fatal shuttle crash. Though he retained his vital organs, such as his brain, eyes, heart and stomach, nearly everything else was cybernetic.
  • Anakin Skywalker had a prosthetic arm, which he was given after a duel with CountDooku resulted in the loss of his arm. Some time later, the arm was replaced.
  • A great deal of Darth Vader's ravaged body was supported by prosthetic replacements, although they had a comparatively low quality compared to others. Vader's artificial limbs were incredibly heavy and purposely badly made, frequently snagging on the inside of his suit. [1] However, despite the low quality, his artificial limbs never tired or weakened.
  • InquisitorValin Draco was fitted with extensive cybernetics, following his near-death when he was attacked by the Alderaanian Resistance beneath the Almas Academy.
  • A'Sharad Hett lost his right arm in his duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine and received a prosthetic replacement. When he met the Yuuzhan Vong, they restored his organic arm.

  • Grand MoffTrachta was kept alive by a cybernetic respiratory system, and his eyes were replaced with ocular cameras, including a third "eye" in the back of his head.
  • Slak Sagar used a respiration system similar to Trachta's.
  • Rosh Penin's arm was replaced by a prosthetic one after Alora severed it.
  • Luke Skywalker was also fitted with a prosthetic hand after losing his own during a duel with his father on the planet Bespin. This hand was replaced during his brief service to the resurrected Emperor. [2] The replacement was later severed during a duel with Lumiya, so he was given yet another replacement prosthesis. [3]
  • The Sith LadyLumiya also received extensive amounts of prosthesis after crashing her starfighter following a dogfight with Luke Skywalker. It was her claim that high levels of prosthesis dampened an individual's sensitivity to the Force. This, she claimed, had stopped Darth Vader from attaining the full potential of a Sith Lord and was also stifled her attempts to achieve a mastery of the dark side of the Force.
  • Darth Caedus received a prosthetic kneecap after the Second Battle of Roche. He could have received a replacement arm as well, but didn't want to stay in the infirmary so he left his arm a stub.

This area of medical technology was spurred by the carnage of the Clone Wars, and the replacement of body parts with lifelike replicas reached a high level of refinement during the Galactic Civil War. Not all prosthetics, however, were designed with replicating the real body part in mind. The prosthetic arm of Arden Lyn, a Teräs Käsi master was conspicuously disproportionate to her body and was in fact a modified droid arm.

Although prosthetics were widely available, not all candidates accepted the replacement limbs offered to them. The Jedi Tenel Ka lost an arm during a practice lightsaber duel with Jacen Solo but chose to shun the offer of a replacement, instead choosing to focus upon her own physical and Force-based abilities to compensate for the loss. Wolf Sazen also kept his arm from being replaced after Darth Nihl cut it off.

In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke receives a very realistic looking hand that can even feel pain.

Compare this to the hand Anakin has at the end of "The Clone Wars" which is obviously robotic, and does not even have a covering that resembles skin.

Technology advancing in the 20+ year period between amputations does not make sense. Its doubtful that prosthetic technology not be able to produce a hand of Lukes quality in a time when cloning technology was available.

Luke's hand is provided to him by the Rebellion, which had limited financial and medical resources. Compare this to Anakin, who as a Jedi in the time of the Old Republic, had access to limitless medical resources. The Jedi probably could have arranged for a biological hand to be cloned for him, but that might raise ethical concerns.

It seems Anakin should have received a hand as advanced as Luke's

First, it look like a lot of improvement was made in the Cybernetics technology during those 20 years because the war caused his share of amputee. Excerpt from Cybernetics wookieepedia article

Fist area of medical technology was spurred by the carnage of the Clone Wars, and the replacement of body parts with lifelike replicas reached a high level of refinement during the Galactic Civil War.

And despite of his appearance Anakin's robotic arm was quite advanced for his time, from Mechno-arm wookieepedia article :

On Geonosis, Anakin's right arm was severed at the elbow by Dooku's lightsaber. Anakin survived his encounter with the Sith Lord, and returned to Coruscant to recuperate and oversee the creation of a prosthetic limb. This robotic appendage lacked the synth-flesh applied to some models, and had a skeletal, droid-like appearance; it was designed to be a sturdy replacement, not a cosmetic disguise. Anakin's new arm connected to the remainder of his limb via a synthennet neural interface, a complicated piece of technology that allowed Anakin to register feeling in his mechno-arm.

Anakin's metal mechno-arm was an advanced version, featuring golden, electrostatic fingertips that simulated a sense of touch. Data collected by the fingertips was transmitted through sensory impulse lines running down the fingers and into an interface module at the wrist. This module served as the junction between Anakin's robotic hand and living flesh. The arm's servos and sensors were controlled by a power cell near the thumb. The mechno-hand's motorized knuckles provide Anakin with a crushing strength far beyond the Human norm.

The new Legends Clone Wars timeline was never established by Lucasfilm. The exact chronology of the events described in this article is currently unknown.

Luke Skywalker tests his prosthetic hand.

A cybernetic replacement was any biomechanical device used to replace body parts ranging from internal organs to limbs, which were usually lost or destroyed by disease or dismemberment. Prosthetic replacements were connected to organic tissue via a complex synth-net neural interface, which provided the recipient with control and sensation. External replacements were often covered by synthflesh to emulate actual organic tissue.

Subjects of cybernetic replacements/enhancements

Many beings had prosthetic replacements throughout galactic history. Several beings were well known for employing unique or extensive prostheses.

  • Darth Malak, a Dark Lord of the Sith during the Old Republic, had a prosthetic voice box that he used to speak, as well as a metallic jaw.
  • Darth Plagueis was forced to wear a transpirator mask after an attempt on his life by Maladianassassins left him with a severed trachea and a large part of his jawbone missing in 52 BBY. His master, Darth Tenebrous, had a similar mask. [2]
  • Shahan Alama had a combat droid's arm grafted into his elbow.
  • Rianna Saren, a Twi'lek mercenary who had one of her lekku cut off, had a prosthetic replacement fitted.
  • GeneralGrievous was forced to have almost his entire body replaced by cybernetic parts after a near-fatal shuttle crash. Though he retained his vital organs, such as his brain, eyes, heart and stomach, nearly everything else was cybernetic.
  • Anakin Skywalker had a prosthetic arm, which he was given after a duel with CountDooku resulted in the loss of his arm. Some time later, the arm was replaced.
  • Bounty hunterCad Bane had a pair of cybernetic tubes connected to his skull to help him in breathing.
  • Neks were enhanced with cybernetic implants for use as animal weapons during the wars that erupted on Cyborrea.
  • Sith LordDarth Maul had to wear a cybernetic apparatus instead of his legs which were cut off by Obi-Wan Kenobi at the end of their duel on Naboo. Maul would later live on Lotho Minor in near-madness until he was found by his brother, Savage Opress, and taken back to Dathomir where Mother Talzin created him a new pair of cybernetic legs. He would later gain a pair of human mechanical legs that returned him to his previous size thanks to Death Watch led by former GovernorPre Vizsla. Savage Opress also received a cybernetic left arm from Death Watch.
  • Clone CommanderWolffe lost his right eye at the hands of Asajj Ventress during the Battle of Khorm. He later received a silver prosthetic eye to replace the eye he lost. [3]

  • Certain Nexu were enhanced with various cybernetics by SeparatistArkanian scientist Cratala to guard the wreckage of the Sa Nalaor, which had crashed on Cholganna following the conclusion of the Clone Wars.
  • A great deal of Darth Vader's ravaged body was supported by prosthetic replacements, although they had a comparatively low quality compared to others. Vader's artificial limbs were incredibly heavy and purposely badly made, frequently snagging on the inside of his suit. [4] However, despite the low quality, his artificial limbs never tired or weakened.

This hand was replaced during his brief service to the resurrected Emperor. [6] The replacement was later severed during a duel with Lumiya, so he was given yet another replacement prosthesis. [7]
  • Qorl, a TIE Fighterpilot stationed on the first Death Star, who was shot down during the Battle of Yavin and shot down again by Luke Skywalker after repairing his fighter. He had a broken left arm after his first crash. He was able to return to a Imperial loyal stronghold called the Second Imperium after Lowbacca, Tenel Ka, Jacen Solo, and Jaina Solo repaired his fighter. The Second Imperium provided him a droid arm to replace his broken left arm.
  • The Sith LadyLumiya also received extensive amounts of prosthesis after crashing her starfighter following a dogfight with Luke Skywalker. It was her claim that high levels of prosthesis dampened an individual's sensitivity to the Force, though others, like Darth Plagueis, thought otherwise. This, she claimed, had stopped Darth Vader from attaining the full potential of a Sith Lord and was also stifled her attempts to achieve a mastery of the dark side of the Force.
  • Lauli Wahlo, who owned a noodle shop, had a prosthetic eye.
  • Sith SaberGavar Khai had his arm cut off at the forearm, in battle with Luke Skywalker, [8] and replaced it with a cybernetic that was stronger and faster. [9]
  • Imperial Knightmaster armorerHogrum Chalk was maimed in an accident, forcing him to wear a suit of life-preserving cyborg armor, as well as cybernetics replacing the left side of his face and eye.
  • Imperial Knight Azlyn Rae was fitted with first a full suit of life-preserving armor made by Rawk, and later an artificial breather constructed by Hogrum Chalk, after her lungs were burned during an assassination attempt on Darth Krayt.

Darth Maul's prosthetic lower body resembled an arachnid

This area of medical technology was spurred by the carnage of the Clone Wars, and the replacement of body parts with lifelike replicas reached a high level of refinement during the Galactic Civil War. Not all prostheses, however, were designed with replicating the real body part in mind. The prosthetic arm of Arden Lyn, a Teräs Käsi master, was conspicuously disproportionate to her body and was in fact a modified droid arm. Similarly, Darth Maul, the former Sith apprentice to Darth Sidious, after narrowly surviving his fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi with his lower half lost, had created a crude substitute for his lower half via a prosthetic that more resembled an arachnid than an actual Dathomirian Nightbrother lower half, although it was later replaced with a pelvis and legs more closely resembling his original ones when he was recovered by his half-brother, Savage Opress.

Although prostheses were widely available, not all candidates accepted the replacement limbs offered to them. The Jedi Tenel Ka lost an arm during a practice lightsaber duel with Jacen Solo but chose to shun the offer of a replacement, instead choosing to focus upon her own physical and Force-based abilities to compensate for the loss. Wolf Sazen also kept his arm from being replaced after Darth Nihl cut it off until later in 137 ABY.

Also, the arrival of the Yuuzhan Vong, who wielded advanced biotechnology, opened new avenues for the replacement of lost limbs. After being captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, A'Sharad Hett's synthetic arm was replaced with a grown organic replacement. Decades later, Hett, now Darth Krayt, would order that a similarly organic replacement be given to Darth Nihl after the Nagai lost his right arm to Cade Skywalker.

The Last Jedi: Does Luke still have the same robotic hand?

When Luke Skywalker emerged at the end of The Force Awakens, we got a look at his new-look cybernetic hand, or is it the one from Return of the Jedi?

During the latest trailer for The Last Jedi, we get a closer look at Luke’s cool robotic hand, which on the surface appears to be a different variation than time’s past, but is it the same one? We can’t answer that question until we take a journey down the history of Luke’s missing hand.

Where were you the first time you heard these infamous words uttered by Darth Vader to Luke Skywalker: “No, I am your father”, in one of the greatest moments in Star Wars history or film for that matter, with that bombshell of feels still lingering nearly 40 years later. In the epic duel, Darth Vader cuts off Luke’s right hand, sending it ( and his former lightsaber) down into the depths of the Industrial sector of Cloud City on Bespin. The Skywalker lightsaber has resurfaced, appearing in The Force Awakens, but we know that Luke’s hand is long gone just like Han Solo (too soon?).

At the end of The Empire Strikes Back, Luke received a replacement hand — which has the look of a natural limb — as a friendly reminder of his incomplete training and the consequences of not heeding Master Yoda’s advice. We then meet Luke one year later in the canon events during Return of the Jedi, with his training complete and no signs of slowing down from his injury.

More from Dork Side of the Force

Upon closer inspection, you can see the blaster bolt that Luke received on Jabba’s “party boat” if you look towards the left part of his right hand and near where his sleeve ends there’s a distinct dent. Also from the latest trailer — have you seen it? — you can catch a glimpse of Luke’s hand among the flames of his burning Jedi Order, which explains why the flesh of the cybernetic is no longer there.

I know this is a minor detail, but with the new canon and Star War fan’s obsession with every single detail, this is cool to get that confirmation. It also shows that Luke is so broken and despaired that he doesn’t care to even fix his (again) damaged robot-hand.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters worldwide on December 15, where we will (hopefully) see that very robotic hand igniting a green-bladed lightsaber once again.
