NEK-01 was a spy droid that served the Hutt Sonnos. After the Human Deggar Feps angered Sonnos, NEK-01 was sent to find Feps, and for several days it used reprogrammed droids to track Feps' movements on the planet Nal Hutta. NEK-01 eventually learned that Feps planned to leave Nal Hutta aboard the Dartiss-5 Caravel Lost Lady, so it sent NEK-072—a protocol droid fitted with a homing beacon and reprogrammed with NEK-01's personality—to board the ship and broadcast a signal calling for nearby bounty hunters to destroy the ship on sight. NEK-01 hoped that the Lost Lady would then be attacked and destroyed, allowing the spy droid to collect the bounty placed on Feps.
