Staging Area Unit
In 19 BBY, he was deployed to Cato Neimoidia with 140 other clone troopers. CT-8779 and the others were tasked with forming a staging area, where they were tasked with holding the line. Also present on the planet was Jedi General Plo Koon and the 127th Gunship Wing.
During the battle, the troopers received Order 66, the order to kill all Jedi. Captain Jag and CT-57/11-9048 were on patrol with Koon when they got the order. The two pilots shot Koon down, sending his ship crashing into the staging area.
The crash killed CT-8779 and 140 other troopers, blowing them all up. The troopers would only be remembered in a report written by Moff Marcellin Wessel given to the Emperor.
