Staging Area Unit
In 19 BBY, CT-8780 and 140 other clone troopers were sent to Cato Neimoidia. The group was assigned to set up a staging area, where they were to hold the droids back at all costs. Also present on planet was Jedi General Plo Koon and the 127th Gunship Wing.
While on assignment, the troopers received Order 66. Captain Jag and CT-57/11-9048 were on patrol with Koon when they received the order, shooting him down on the spot. The Jedi's ship crashed into the staging area, killing CT-8780 and the other 140 clones.
CT-8780 and the 140 troopers would be memorialized only in a report written by Moff Marcellin Wessel and given to the new Emperor, with Order 66 claiming yet another group of victims.
