"Master, they just delivered your replacement astromech droid. This is R3-S6. I've heard that the new R3s are far faster in thinking skills and more powerful than the old R2 units."
―Ahsoka Tano, introducing R3-S6 to Anakin Skywalker — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

R3-S6, also known as "Goldie" or "Stubby," was an R3-series astromech droid assigned to Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars to replace his lost astromech droid, R2-D2. Serving as a double-agent for the Separatists, R3-S6 would often sabotage Republic missions.

BiographyEdit

The search for R2Edit

"A gold droid for Gold leader of Gold Squadron."
―Ahsoka Tano, to Anakin Skywalker — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]
Anakin Ahsoka and R3-S6 search for R2-D2

Skywalker, R3-S6, and Tano search for R2-D2.

Following the loss of R2-D2 during the Battle of Bothawui, R3-S6 was assigned to Jedi General Anakin Skywalker as a replacement.[4] R3, secretly an agent of Separatist leader General Grievous,[2] accompanied Skywalker and his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, as they searched for R2. In an attempt to gain Skywalker's appreciation for R3, Tano nicknamed the droid "Goldie," pointing out that Skywalker was Gold Leader of Gold Squadron. Despite this, Skywalker still disliked R3, giving him the name "Stubby", as he felt something suspicious on the droid. While searching the remains of the battle, the trio encountered a Trandoshan scavenging freighter. Believing the vessel may have collected R2, the group boarded, and were welcomed by Gha Nachkt, who claimed R2 was not aboard. Nonetheless, they continued to browse the scavenger's collection. Eventually, they gave up their search and returned to Skywalker's Corellian freighter,[7] the Twilight.[4]

Confederate agentEdit

"Report, Agent R3."
―Grievous[src]
GrievousGoldie-DotD

R3-S6 reports to Grievous.

Unbeknownst to Skywalker, R2-D2 was aboard Nachkt's freighter, as the Trandoshan intended to sell the droid to Grievous for the vital information it contained. As Nachkt neared Skytop Station, a Confederate listening post, R2 sent a message to the Twilight, allowing Skywalker to track him. Skywalker, Tano, R3-S6, and a group of clone troopers infiltrated Skytop Station, where Skywalker set off in search of his droid, and the rest set out to destroy the station's reactors. While Tano and the clones were distracted, R3 contacted Grievous, alerting them of the Jedi's presence. The general soon arrived, separating Tano and R3 from the clones. As Tano hid from Grievous, R3 revealed her location, and a brief lightsaber duel ensued before Tano fled. Tano, now aware of R3's allegiance, attempted to reunite with her team in the station's hangar. However, R3 reached them first, proceeding to close the hangar door and activate three vulture droids. Concluding that R3 was a spy, Skywalker ordered the recently-found R2-D2 to reopen the doors so they could escape the exploding station via the Twilight. R3 followed R2 to the catwalk were the access port was located, and a duel began between the two astromechs. R2 was victorious, and R3 fell off the catwalk before being hit by debris from the falling station.[2]

"As for you, Stubby, you'd make a poor excuse for a light switch."
―Anakin Skywalker[src]
