"First squad, cover the retreat!"
―Captain Rex to first squad during the battle of Orto Plutonia[src]

First squad was a squad of clone cold assault troopers that fought during the Battle of Orto Plutonia against Thi-Sen and his Talz warriors during the Clone Wars after Chairman Chi Cho of Pantora instigated a war between their forces and the Talz. After being surrounded by the Talz and sustaining casualties, Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" ordered first squad to cover the retreat.[1]

By the end of the battle, eleven clone troopers were dead and the rest wounded, including Chairman Cho. After reinforcements arrived and a cease fire was in effect, Senator Riyo Chuchi was given permission by the Speaker of the Assembly to broker peace with the Talz after Chairman Cho's actions were called out of order, of which Chuchi was successful in accomplishing.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

First squad first appeared in the fifteenth episode of the first season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which was released in 2009 and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell.[1]
