Staging Area Unit
In 19 BBY, CT-8798 and a unit of 140 other clone troopers were deployed to the planet of Cato Neimoidia. They were tasked with setting up a staging area for the coming battle. Also on planet was Jedi General Plo Koon and the 127th Gunship Wing.
While on the planet, the clones received Order 66, the order to kill all Jedi leaders. The two clones on patrol with Koon, Captain Jag and CT-57/11-9048, opened fire on Koon and killed him instantly.
His ship, however, crashed into the staging area, where it killed CT-8798 and the other 140 troopers. The unit's death would only be remembered in a casualty report written by Moff Marcellin Wessel and give n to the new Emperor.
