Star Wars Rebels - Season 3, Episode 6 //
The Last Battle Episode Guide
Early in the Clone Wars, the Separatist droid army was often led into war by analytically minded tactical droids. Before long, the Republic was able to outmaneuver the tactical droids by exploiting their reliance on precise calculation and lack of imagination when dealing with the unexpected. Furthermore, the droids were spindly mechanics whose heads could be yanked off and scoured for vital combat data. Super tactical droids, like General Kalani, were an improvement over the standard tactical droid. Kalani's advanced processors and robust frame made him a threat to be reckoned with.
A barren world of frost and rock, Agamar was the site of a Clone Wars battle between the Republic and Separatists. Years after the end of the war, Clone War veteran Captain Rex and a band of rebels visited the planet searching for weapons, and encountered a still-active reserve of Separatist droids. The Super Tactical Droid commander demanded they have one last battle to decide the war, but the groups ultimately joined forces to take on a common enemy: the Empire.
Super Tactical Droids were highly intelligent and strategic, qualities that enabled them to be masterful commanders for the Separatist Army in the Clone Wars. Kalani, a notable Super Tactical Droid, prevented Darth Sidious’ shutdown command following Order 66. Years later, Kalani and his battle droids were found by clone Captain Rex and his rebel friends, and the two sides joined forces against the Empire.
When Captain Rex and members of the Ghost crew found themselves the target of an Imperial assault at an abandoned Clone Wars-era base, they used a Sheathipede-class shuttle to escape. While devoid of weapons, the transport proved effective, and Kanan saw potential in the craft as the Phantom’s successor. Thus, the Phantom II was born.
Clone Captain Rex served the Republic during the Clone Wars, often taking orders from Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. He viewed military service as an honor, and he always completed his mission. Fond of using two blaster pistols at the same time, Rex customized his armor with distinctive blue markings. His loyalty to the Republic and his Jedi Generals was absolute, but even this dedicated veteran soldier found himself plagued by doubts as the Clone Wars claimed more lives and brought ruin to more worlds.
