Yes, definitely humans, it's been stated/hinted in numerous works.
But what about the second most common species? I'm guessing Twi'lek, but I don't really know.

I had the same interpretation as Taral, but I like what Mara suggested, that we have to stretch the definition a bit. Even by human he probably means "sentient species" and maybe he doesn't say "human cyborg relations" when he introduces himself to a non "Basic" speaking alien.

I know humans are stated as the most common species in the galaxy, but I was wondering who else? Or if they've ever given numbers or percentages.

I don't think there's anything canon, but you can make a few assumptions.

I think the best assumption to make is that the most common species are those enslaved by the Hutts (Vodrans, Klatooinians, Nikto) and similar races used by the Hutts as mercenaries (Weequay).

My logic: for the slaves, I'm thinking that the Hutts would do their best to ensure a constant stream of slaves for every generation. They probably breed their slave races for many traits, and numbers would be one of them.

25,000 years of slavery should ensure a large number of Vodrans, Klatooinians, and Niktos in the Galaxy.

Twi'leks would apply similarly. Twi'lek slavery is common (not just for the women), and so a slave population might be bred to maximize their numbers.

The same logic might apply to the hired races, but from a free will point of view. Each family is well off working for the Hutts, so they make sure there's enough in the next generation to serve further.

But that's just a thought.

I haven't found anything really conclusive, but I think the Duros might be the second most common. First off, they were one of the earliest space explorers. Secondly, their entire species lives off planet.

This just hit me like the Executor hit the Death Star II.

Why did they bring C-3PO with them on Endor?

Sure he became a crucial part of the mission, with the whole Ewok tribe thing, but that was an unforseen event.

If you're going on a stealthy commando mission, why would you bring a slow, shiny and loud protocol droid with you?

To draw fire away from you once the shooting begins? Laughing

Humans are the second most-common. Midichlorians are the first. [/troll]

Star Wars #1 gives us some insight into why 3P0 as well as R2 were brought along. BOTH have military upgrades during the Rebellion's time after the first Death Star.

A while back I asked how many Bothans died for the Death Star plans. While reading the book about the Shadows of the Empire project, it stated that exactly 12 Bothans died.

Borsk sure got a lot of mileage out of those 12.
