Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 5, Episode 11 //
A Sunny Day in the Void
Though the clone troopers embodied the war effort of the Galactic Republic against the Separatist Alliance, victory was reliant upon valiant patriots of all shapes and sizes. Meebur Gascon answered the call of duty at the very start of the conflict, and offered his keen analysis as part of Strategic Command since the Battle of Geonosis. The Jedi Council placed Gascon in command of D-Squad's mission to obtain a vital Separatist encryption module. No-nonsense and military-minded with an outsized personality and gruff voice, the diminutive Gascon balked at any suggestion that he was simply a map reader, or that his D-Squad assignment was a result of his tiny size.
A clever if flighty pit droid programmed in piloting, WAC-47 served as part of the 91st Recon Corps, reporting to Clone Commander Neyo. He was drafted into service as part of D-Squad, a special missions group of droids assigned by the Jedi Council to recover a vital Separatist encryption module. WAC-47 did not always see photoreceptor-to-eye with the mission's commander, Colonel Meebur Gascon, who treated the loyal droids as property. WAC-47, who seemingly had a program glitch that was unable to properly register the colonel's rank as anything other than "corporal," insisted Gascon treat D-Squad with the respect they deserved.
A resourceful astromech droid, R2-D2 served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he formed an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol droid C-3PO.
A chipper astromech droid that served with Aayla Secura during the Clone Wars, QT-KT was called upon to serve the Republic as part of D-Squad, an all-droid special missions unit led by the gruff Colonel Meebur Gascon. To carry out the vital assignment of capturing a Separatist encryption module, Qutee was outfitted with a special remote-controlled magnet coil concealed in her upper dome.
Serving alongside the aged Jedi Master Tera Sinube with distinction that drew the attention of the Jedi Council, M5-BZ was called upon to serve the Republic as part of D-Squad, an all-droid special missions unit led by the gruff Colonel Meebur Gascon. To carry out the vital assignment of capturing a Separatist encryption module, Beezee had its cranial memory module gutted to allow room for a mobile command center that would house Gascon.
A somewhat timid astromech droid that served with Jedi Thongla Jur during the Clone Wars, U9-C4 was called upon to serve the Republic as part of D-Squad, an all-droid special missions unit led by the gruff Colonel Meebur Gascon. To carry out the vital assignment of capturing a Separatist encryption module, Ceefor was outfitted with an intense laser cutter capable of slicing through most materials. To fire the laser, Ceefor had to anchor itself firmly since the modification packed quite the recoil.
