Vee Gee was a droid owned by General Airen Cracken. While on the water world of Barison, pirates stole Vee Gee and fitted him with a restraining bolt. Cracken came up with a way of modifying a tight-beam emitter with a pivar spinner from a holoprojector to create a device capable of blocking the command signals to the restraining bolt, allowing Vee Gee to escape.
