Around 22 BBY, the Tango Company was sent to fight in the Second Battle of Geonosis. After the battle, they slept outside their transport. While sleeping, a clone trooper, Scythe, was infected by a brain worm controlled by the Geonosian hive queen that had found its way to the surface. Tango Company and the Jedi Padawans, Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee, boarded a Pelta-class frigate and traveled towards the Ord Cestus medical station, where they had to run a medical errand. While flying, Scythe infected the other clones, but was unsuccessful with infecting the two Jedi Padawans traveling with them. Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee escaped their grasp, until Offee was cornered and infected with the brain worm.
With a Jedi at their side, Tango Company hunted down the last Padawan and killed the pilots, taking control of the ship. Ahsoka Tano contacted Jedi Master Kit Fisto on the station, informing him of her troubles. He told her to cool down the ship, as the cold would paralyze the brain worms. She succeeded, and the brain worms started to die down. Just as they got to the station, all on board, where knocked unconscious by the cold, but everyone, save for lieutenant Trap who was killed while infected woke up unharmed in the station.
Armor and Equipment Edit
The troopers of Tango Company possessed Phase I clone trooper armor, with the same aqua colored markings. The weapons the company varied between DC-15S blaster carbines and DC-15A blaster rifles. The Company also wielded backpacks, which Scythe used to carry the parasites, after becoming infected, aboard TB-73.
