M5-BZ, also referred to as Beezee, was an astromech droid member of D-Squad and the property of Jedi Master Tera Sinube. M5-BZ was lost in hyperspace after opening an airlock while aboard a Venator-class Star Destroyer, the Renown.



M5-BZ was the property of Jedi Master Tera Sinube. When Colonel Meebur Gascon of the Galactic Republic wished to infiltrate a Separatist ship in order to obtain an encryption module scrambling all Separatist communications within the region, he formed D-Squad, an all-droid team. M5-BZ was assigned to the team, but the droid secretly had his memory banks removed, allowing the diminutive colonel to use him as a mobile command center.[7]

While on this mission, M5-BZ tried to open a booby-trapped door, and got electrified. The rest of his team repaired him shortly afterwards.[2]

While on a mission, D-Squad came under attack by a swarm of buzz droids aboard a Venator-class Star Destroyer, the Renown, which had been captured by the Separatists, and M5-BZ opened the ship's airlock, pulling the buzz droids, along with himself, into the vacuum of space.[5]


M5-BZ was remembered as a hero for his actions of his sacrifice to save D-Squad, and Gascon gave an impromptu eulogy speech before the squad continued their mission and eventually prevented the destruction of the Valor space station.[5]

  4. According to StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link), the events of "Point of No Return" occur after "The Gathering." Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Character Encyclopedia - Join the Battle! dates the events of that episode to be 20 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 20 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Additionally, Point of No Return is set during the Clone Wars, which Galactic Atlas says ended in 19 BBY. Therefore, the events of Point of No Return, including the death of M5-BZ, must be set in 20 or 19 BBY.
