The Marauder was a starship operated by Weequay pirates during the Clone Wars. Over one year into the war, the Republic-owned droids R2-D2 and C-3PO were captured and taken to the ship to be watched in a gladiatorial arena for the pirates' amusement. However, the Separatist General Grievous arrived, and ordered his battle droids to use the ship as target practice. When the ship was shot, the droids and most, if not all, of the pirates were sucked out into space. The rest were killed in a massive explosion that occurred soon after. Following this a number of the droids were captured and incinerated by the Separatists.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 According to Tarkin, the events of "The Citadel" occur a year after a battle on Murkhana, which itself took place nine months after the Battle of Geonosis. As a result, "The Citadel" takes place one year and nine months into the Clone Wars. Since places "Nomad Droids" after "The Citadel," it can be concluded that "Nomad Droids" also takes place over a year into the war.
