Behind the scenesEdit
RGA-972 first appeared on two cards in Decipher's 2001 Jedi Knights Trading Card Game. Based on the cards' statistics, RGA-972's combat abilities are weaker than most other stormtrooper characters; however his support ability is more powerful than normal. The in-game lore of his Premiere card reveals that E-Web teams needed protection while setting up their weapon, and that Rebels and Wampas posed a threat to the operation. In 2008, the character was given an entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.
