After General Grievous ordered that the unidentified pirate ship be destroyed, R2-D2 and C-3PO were sucked out into space through a hole in the pirate ship caused by a hit from Grievous's Providence-class carrier/destroyer. R2 used his rocket boosters to ferry himself and C-3PO aboard Grievous’ ship, where a reception committee of battle droids awaited them, including this droid and a fellow B1 droid. At first, the other droid was amazed to see C-3PO and R2 and asked where they had come from. This droid then suggested they might be pirate droids. Hearing that, the other droid told R2 and C-3PO they were under arrest. While at first C-3PO denied that he and R2 were pirate droids, after being prompted by R2, he admitted they were pirates. The other droid then sent them to the incinerator room to be melted down for replacement parts, and this droid kicked R2 to move faster.
