Star Wars Rebels - Season 2, Episode 19 //
The Forgotten Droid Episode Guide
Chopper was the resident droid of the Ghost, assisting the crew in everything from ship maintenance to combat -- even though he didn't always want to. After many years of repairs and patch jobs, Chopper had a beat-up, worn look that matched his sometimes cranky personality. Aesthetics aside, he was an essential part of this small rebel team, and ultimately, was loyal and heroic.
Proud and honorable, AP-5 was a droid that served as a navigator for the Republic military during the Clone Wars. Following the formation of the Empire, however, he was reassigned to inventory. While the position did not take advantage of his gifts, he performed his duties without complaint -- despite threats and disrespect from his Imperial commanders. It was only after a fateful meeting with the rebel astromech Chopper that AP-5 came to see he did not have to serve the Empire. He helped Chopper escape capture and defected to the rebels, helping find a safe haven away from Imperial forces.
Enormous craft, Imperial cargo ships were designed to haul large numbers of crates and containers from port to port. They required the presence of an inventory droid to track and monitor all cargo. During one notable instance, the rebel astromech Chopper stowed away on an Imperial cargo ship, eventually joining forces with inventory droid AP-5 to steal the vessel.
Horizon Base was an Imperial outpost that was both a shipping port and fueling station. The Ghost crew, in need of fuel, pulled off a daring heist at Horizon Base; the rebel astromech, Chopper, accidentally left there, eventually stole an Imperial cargo ship from the site. In the process, he recruited the inventory droid AP-5 to join the cause of the rebellion.
Ugnaughts are a species of diminutive humanoids who divided themselves into a tribal heirarchy. They have pink skin, white hair, upturned noses, and thick layers of jowls. They found work across the galaxy everywhere from the Jedi Temple and Coruscant to Cloud City and Lothal. One notable Ugnaught scholar and antiquities expert was Korin Pers, a sava at the University of Bar’leth.
The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander -- and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters -- she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire.
