"Accompanying Koon on aerial patrol of Cato Neimoidia's bridge cities, Jag (CT-55/11-9009) and CT-57/11-9048 received Order 66 and fired several shots from the wing cannons of the ARC-170 starfighters belonging to the 127th."
―Moff Marcellin Wessel, in a report to Emperor Palpatine[2]

CT-57/11-9048 was a clone trooper pilot who served in the Galactic Republic's 127th Gunship Wing during the Clone Wars. In 19 BBY, he fought on the planet Cato Neimoidia, flying an ARC-170 starfighter. When Order 66 was issued by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, CT-57/11-9048 and Captain CT-55/11-9009 killed their commanding officer, Jedi Master Plo Koon, while they were escorting him on a patrol of the planet's bridge cities.

CT-57/11-9048 was a clone trooper pilot who served in the Grand Army of the Republic and the Republic Navy during the Clone Wars.[2] One of the many clones of the bounty hunter Jango Fett who were bred on the planet Kamino for warfare,[1] CT-57/11-9048 served as the wingman of Captain CT-55/11-9009—nicknamed "Jag"—in the 127th Gunship Wing.[3] In 19 BBY, he fought in a battle on Cato Neimoidia, a Neimoidian purse world, serving under Jedi General Plo Koon. During the battle, CT-57/11-9048 and Jag accompanied Koon on an aerial patrol of Cato Neimoidia's bridge cities.[2]

The two clones flew ARC-170 starfighters, while Koon piloted a Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor. As they proceeded with the patrol, the clones received a transmission from the Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, who ordered them to execute Order 66, which dictated all clones to kill their Jedi leaders. CT-57/11-9048 and Jag complied and shot down Koon's starfighter, and it crashed into a clone training center, killing both the Jedi Master[2] and 141 clone troopers stationed there.[4] Moff Marcellin Wessel later filed a report on CT-57/11-9048 and Jag's actions to Palpatine, who had become the Emperor of the newly proclaimed Galactic Empire.[2]

Personality and traits[]

Like all of Jango Fett's clones, CT-57/11-9048 stood 1.83 meters tall.[1]
