I feel like it's written down somewhere but I can't remember it: what happened to the living occupants of Androffa, the people who built the Divinity and gave us Pathfinder Androids, in the Starfinder setting?


It effectively doesn't exist in the Starfinder setting. It, like Earth, is in a different galaxy and neither Drift nor anything else yet allows intergalactic travel or discovery.

Ah. I see. Disappointing but fair.

It is also the setting of James Jacobs' home games (Pathfinder, I think), in which the planet turned out very Golarion-like after the destruction of the high-tech population.

Well then tell James Jacobs to send me a write up! LOL

I'd pay to see that. Kickstarter anyone?

If the Androids originated in a different galaxy, how did they get to the Starfinder Galaxy?

The divinity that arrived on golarion from androffa back during the pathfinder days. From there, reverse engineering if not parallel development.

From the Core Rulebook:

Android technology in the Pact Worlds is generally believed to have developed on Golarion in the time before the Gap, though there are strong indications that the first androids there were actually travelers from a distant star system. In the modern era, various corporations throughout the Pact Worlds system unraveled the secret to android creation and began mass-producing androids as cheap, skilled labor perfect for hazardous work.


Right, I headcannoned they were invented by the Azlanti as slave labor, and some escaped to Golarion, where they were again enslaved.

But another galaxy is a lot further away than the Azlanti Empire. So a god did it makes sense.

Time travel does.

Right, I suppose this is technically Iron Gods PF AP spoilers.

Iron Gods:
The divinity was the name of an androffan ship that was sent out with a crazy awesome wormhole drive before the androffan gods got all smitey with the world. Through a series of unfortunate coincidences, it crash landed in numeria on golarion, and the tech to create androids (and a lot of other tech in starfinder) was presumably salvaged from the still functional examples in the wreckage.
