J9-R1 was a J9 worker drone assigned to the New Republic CR90 corvette FarStar. Assigned to the hydroponics bay, the unit - along with its two companions (J9-B4 and J9-K6-24) - was considered a "busybody." A self styled "efficiency expert" with endless suggestions to improve crew moral and efficiency, it constantly bickered with the other two J9 units.
