In Star Wars – A New Hope we see Princess Leia inserting a card into R2-D2’s memory-slot before she sends him to Tatooine. Vader’s men inspect the computers on the Tantive to find the stolen Death Star plans but find nothing, suggesting that the plans were being physically carried. In Rogue One – A Star Wars Story we see how the stolen Death star plans are transferred to a card, this data-card is eventually handed to the princess where she replies with the legendary word “hope”.
