R2-Q5 was an R2 series astromech droid. Made by Industrial Automaton, he served the Galactic Empire aboard the Death Star II, performing maintenance and repair as needed. Like many Imperial astromechs, he was fitted with spy devices allowing human overseers to monitor personnel. He single-handedly thwarted IG-88A's software infiltration of the Death Star II.
Behind the scenesEdit
R2-Q5 first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and was first identified in canon by this name in the reference book Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded. While the title states that many droids like him are fitted with secret spy devices, it does not specify whether R2-Q5 specifically is in fact fitted with these.
