- "I am PZ-7. I was not aware two inventory units were assigned to this level."
- ―PZ-7, to AP-5
PZ-7 was a feminine RA-7 protocol droid who served the Galactic Empire in the year 2 BBY, during which she was an inventory droid at Killun Station, an Imperial Security Bureau base located on the moon Killun 71. When the Imperial-turned-rebel inventory droid AP-5 was sent to Killun Station to secure clearance codes crucial to the rebellion's planned attack on the planet Lothal, he encountered PZ-7 before he could access the facility's Central Computer Core. PZ-7 told him that she had not been informed that a second inventory droid was stationed on that level, however AP-5 devised a lie that she had been reassigned to Killun Station's cargo platform, and that he was replacing her. She told AP-5 that she understood and departed for her new posting, allowing him to retrieve the codes for the rebellion.
- "Halt. What are you doing here?"
- ―PZ-7 sights AP-5
PZ-7 was a feminine-programmed RA-7 protocol droid manufactured by Arakyd Industries. She served the Imperial Security Bureau of the Galactic Empire at one of their bases, Killun Station, located on the moon Killun 71, in the year 2 BBY, where she worked as an inventory droid on the level of the facility that housed its Central Computer Core.
Phoenix Squadron, one of the cells that made up the early rebellion against the Empire, made plans to destroy the Imperial factory on the Outer Rim planet Lothal with the aid of another rebel cell. Before they could initiate their attack, however, they required clearance codes for Lothal which could be accessed from Killun Station. To retrieve the codes, they dispatched former Imperial pilot Wedge Antilles, former Imperial inventory droid AP-5, and astromech droid C1-10P to the Security Bureau base.
Once the rebels managed to enter Killun Station, AP-5 made his way to the Central Computer Core, where the clearance codes were held. Before he could enter the room in which the core was located, however, he was stopped by PZ-7, who noted that she had not received word of a second inventory droid assigned to that level. In order to keep his cover AP-5 devised a lie, telling PZ-7 that she had been reassigned to Killun Station's cargo platform, and that he was replacing her. PZ-7 told AP-5 that she understood and departed for her new posting, allowing him to retrieve the codes for the rebellion from the Central Computer Core.
- "Uh, well, it is unfortunate, but I must report, you have been reassigned to the cargo platform. I am your replacement."
- ―PZ-7 easily fell for AP-5's lie that she had been reassigned to Killun Station's cargo platform
A loyal Imperial droid, PZ-7 was quick to stop AP-5 and question why he was on the level she had been stationed at in Killun Station. She did, however, fall for his trick that she had been reassigned elsewhere, and expressed no doubt in the validity of his fib. Once she departed for the base's cargo platform, AP-5 remarked to himself that he could not believe he was the same model as "that Imperial drone."
Like all RA-7 protocol droids, PZ-7 stood at 1.7 meters tall and was equipped with broadband photoreceptors with antiglare coating as well as an interface connection port. She had feminine programming, as well as sensors that would light up white when she spoke and dark gray plating. Etched on her forehead were two downward sloping lines, and below that was a dark-colored circle containing a horizontal pill-shaped marking, and twelve curved shapes protruding from all around the circle.
Behind the scenesEdit
PZ-7 appeared in the nineteenth episode of the animated television series Star Wars Rebels' third season, "Double Agent Droid," which aired on March 11, 2017, on Disney XD. She was voiced by Vanessa Marshall, who also voices Hera Syndulla, one of the show's main characters.
