- "I am more than just a pilot!"
Immediately, this overenthusiastic, bumbling droid went off on a bad start. He arrived at the Jedi Temple late, much to the displeasure of Mace Windu. When Colonel Meebur Gascon arrived, WAC was instantly at odds with the Colonel, often mistakenly referring to him as Corporal and contradicting Gascon's strict ways.
When the other droids of D-Squad went to get modifications from the Parwan doctor Gubacher, WAC was instructed to stay with their ship, as he was supposed to only be the pilot. WAC was not happy with this, and when they were approaching the Separatist fleet, he set a collision course with the Dreadnought. He was trying to show Gascon that he was more than a pilot, but Gascon was very angry with WAC anyway as their ship was caught in a tractor beam.
At one point, the squad was faced with one of their objectives to remove two B2 super battle droids guarding the comm vault. WAC volunteered to distract them by claiming to have been sent by General Grievous to test the vault's security and locked them in an elevator, allowing the squad to go on.
They successfully reached their destination with only the loss of M5-BZ. When they were about to extract their encryption module, the super tactical droid Aut-O burst into the room. R2-D2 turned the gravity in the room off, and a skirmish between D-Squad and the Separatists broke out. Aut-O was eventually defeated and the squad was able to escape safely with the module.
On their way out of the Dreadnought, WAC and R2-D2 paused at the destroyed body of M5-BZ. While Gascon did not approve at first, they were allowed to bring the droid with them for repairs once they got home.
Although originally enemies, WAC seemed to grow on Gascon as he commended all of them for their bravery in the mission. This was the first time WAC correctly called Gascon a Colonel, as well. He was promoted to Corporal after that mission.
As the astromech got to work on BZ, WAC noticed blips on the ship sensors. He got up to inform Gascon that there are comets in their path but added that he'd at least have an excuse if his mission fails. Gascon hurries to the cockpit as the hyperspace window turns red. WAC drops them out of hyperspace before they could collide but the shuttle sustained damage in the middle of the swarm. The mechs managed to repair the damage, restoring power to the engines, but they were forced into a crashlanding on Abafar.
Though Gascon insisted they stay at the ship, the mechs took off with the encryption module, hoping to find civilization. WAC chased after them, telling Gascon that perhaps the Republic will give himself a promotion by delivering the module, prompting Gascon to chase after the droids.
As the group travels across the featureless waste, Gascon once again begins to lose his temper and claims himself better due to his training and supposed mental flexibility while the droids "merely" act on their programming. WAC, however, manages to point out the flaws in Gascon's reasoning, and a chance encounter with another shipwreck and the dead remnants of its crew tears the last shred of resolve from Gascon. In his desperation, he begins to lose his mind, and when as a result WAC impertinently announces himself the new leader of the group, he finds himself overruled and abandoned by the others.
WAC remained with Gascon as the Colonel bemoaned the hopelessness of his predicament. The pit droid tells him that it's not in his programming to give up and asks Gascon why he feels this way. This restores Gascon's resolve, as he decides to think outside the box. At that moment, a stampede of native flightless birds rush past them. The duo hitch a ride on the birds, Gascon reasoning that their instincts will lead them to safety. Sure enough, the birds bring them to the town of Pons Ora, where they find the rest of D-Squad. Before taking a much needed drink from an oasis, Gascon thanks WAC for helping him and field promotes him to the rank of Corporal. This pleases WAC, who goes on to boasting of his new rank to the astromechs.
As they make their way through town, Gascon and WAC separate from the rest of the squad so the former can get some much needed refreshment. But upon entering a diner, they are rudely shooed out by the Sullustan cook, Borkus. Though Gascon vowed revenge, WAC pointed out that he's unlikely to get it. The pit droid then spotted a swarm of insects scurrying to the side of the diner, where the garbage was. Though Gascon was disgusted by the thought of eating leftovers, he saw no alternative. But before he could take a bite, the diner's dish washer, Gregor, came out to dump more waste. He apologized to Gascon and offered to give him food on the side. However, the Colonel stared at Gregor, identifying him as a clone, but apparently had amnesia. Before they could press any further, Gregor was called back into the diner.
Gascon and WAC rendezvoused with the astromechs, who reported the presence of Separatists on the planet. Though Gascon's deductive reasoning, they found a landing zone, albeit heavily guarded. Gascon said they must stealthily make their way to the docked shuttle, the droids pointed out that the Separatists make be on the lookout for them after their mission to the dreadnaught. Therefore, they decide to enlist Gregor's aid. They followed the clone to his apartment and get his attention with a hologram of Captain Rex. R2 is able to identify him as a clone commando from his ID tag, presumed missing in action in the battle of Sarrish. With his memory partially restored, Gregor agreed to help them and they go to the diner to search for his equipment, where they are confronted by Borkus, who had been secretly hiding his gear. D-Squad is able to get the drop on the Sullustan, leaving him bound on the diner floor. As they prepare to leave, Borkus reveals that the Separatists are mining Rhydonium to blow up the Republic cruiser in orbit.
Gregor provided cover fire for D-Squad as they made their way to the shuttle. But the battle droids attempt to stop them. One stray shot hit a fuel canister, knocking down BZ and Gascon inside him. Gascon urged WAC to leave him, an order he quickly complied with. He quickly met up with Gregor, who went back for Gascon and BZ and stayed behind to cover D-Squad's escape. As WAC got the shuttle in the air, he asked Gascon where Gregor was. The Colonel stated that the clone commando was sacrificing himself to ensure they survive to tell of his tale. D-Squad then departed Abafar for the Republic.
