BB-9E was a black-plated BB-series astromech droid in the service of the First Order. Unlike BB-8, a BB unit in the service of the Resistance, the droid featured a squarer domed head and red-colored sensor.
BB-9E served aboard the Supreme Leader Snoke's personal flagship, the Mega-class Star Destroyer Supremacy. While serving on the Supremacy, BB-9E exposed Finn and Rose Tico, covert Resistance operatives, to the rest of the ship.
Behind the scenesEdit
BB-9E was first revealed when several LEGO sets' packaging for Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi toy line leaked on May 26, 2017. The droid was officially introduced in a preview for the Force Friday II products, released on August 31, 2017. BB-9E also acted as one of the three droids of the "App-Enabled Droids" app AR game by Sphero alongside R2-D2 and BB-8, with BB-9E in particular giving a tour of the Supremacy. The droid made its first non-canonical appearance in the Star Wars Blips episode "Hey You," where he had a run in with BB-8.
BB-9E was nicknamed "BB-H8," as in "hate," on the set of The Last Jedi.
