"Running low on bacta, sir. Okay on analgesics for the time being."
―Clone Sergeant Coric, reporting the resources available to the aid station to Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

Located on[2] the Outer Rim planet[3] Christophsis's capital, Chaleydonia, the forward aid station was situated inside a colonnaded doorway in a building near the Galactic Republic's perimeter during the Battle of Christophsis. The aid depot was equipped with a number of medical supplies, as well as scattered crates for injured clone troopers to sit on as they were operated upon.[2]

The aid station was used during the Battle of Christophsis by the Grand Army of the Republic's 501st Legion[2] in 22 BBY.[1] Clone Sergeant Coric provided medical services to clone trooper Ged after the trooper was injured while defending the Republic's perimeter during a Separatist attack. After the counterattack, Coric reported to Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex" that the station was running low on bacta supplies, but was well stocked in pain killers. Additionally, Rex used the station to give him a respite as he cut his hair.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The forward aid station first appeared in the novelization of the 2008 film Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The novelization was written by Karen Traviss and published the same year.[2]


Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 The Essential Reader's Companion dates both the Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones novelization, which depicts the debut of the Grand Army of the Republic in the Clone Wars, and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars novelization, in which the forward aid station appears, to 22 BBY. Since the latter work depicts the forward aid station as a structure of the Grand Army of the Republic used during the Clone Wars, it must have also been constructed in that year.
