When droids of the Confederacy of Independent Systems hijacked a Republic cruiser, all clone personal and crew members were all killed but this droid and a small group of others led by BNI-393. when D-Squad led by Meebur Gascon came aboard the star ship, the droid survivors hoped to escape with them until a buzz droid was caught spying on the droids. Astromech droid R2-D2 then chased the spy in pursuit to the gunnery room where the rest followed—except this droid stayed behind at D-Squad's shuttle. He was later returned under the protection of the Republic after they escaped the Renown that was full of rhydonium. The droid along with the others were all assigned to the same Platoon for the rest of the war as it escalated its destructive path.
