Staging Area Unit
The trooper was deployed to Cato Neimoidia in 19 BBY to reinforce the Republic presence there. CT-8786 and 140 other clone troopers were deployed to set up a staging area and hold as many droids back as possible. Also on planet was Jedi General Plo Koon and the 127th Gunship Wing.
While on planet, the clones all received Order 66, the order to kill all Jedi. Koon, who was on patrol with Captain Jag and CT-57/11-9048 when the order was given, was shot down instantly. Unfortunately, the two clones actions resulted in Koon's ship crashing into the staging area, killing CT-8786 and the 140 other troopers there. They would only be memorialized in a casualty report written by Moff Marcellin Wessel and given to the new Emperor.
