- ―DSS-0956 reports his failure to retrieve R2-D2 And C-3PO
DSS-0956 was the desert stormtrooper senior officer of Desert Sands during their deployment to Tatooine. He reported to Captain Mod Terrik, and failed to recover the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO at the Lars homestead.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the 2007 "Look Sir, Droids" action figure set made by Sideshow Collectibles, DSS-0956 was identified as the sandtrooper who was addressed by Davin Felth in the source scene from the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. However, the 1996 story When the Desert Wind Turns: The Stormtrooper's Tale identified that character as Mod Terrik, who was further established to be killed attempting to prevent the Millennium Falcon's escape, whereas DSS-0956 was established by Tatooine Debriefing to have lived past those events. In 2008, DSS-0956 was given an entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which clarified that he served under Terrik.
