Staging Area Unit
The trooper survived throughout the war, to 19 BBY, where he was deployed to Cato Neimoidia, along with a Staging Area Unit of 140 other troopers. Jedi General Plo Koon and the 127th Gunship Wing were also present, patrolling the planet for remaining Separatist forces.
During their deployment, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine gave Contingency Order 66 to Captain Jag and CT-57/11-9048 of the 127th Gunship Wing, who were on patrol with Koon. They fired at Koon's ship, blowing it out of the sky, killing him. The ship crashed into the staging area where CT-8771 and the other 140 troopers were located, killing them all.
