Galactic Electronics Corporation employed Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transport GEC U47 at their primary research facility Pondut during the Galactic Civil War. GEC U47's job was to run cargo transfers between the containers and the station. After the discovery of Mag-pulse Torpedoes aboard Rebel starfighters, Imperial Intelligence derived Galactic Electronics as the supplier. Imperial starships raided the facility, stripping it of all resources, and capturing GEC U47 in the process.
