"Pod 1977, do you copy?"
―Jedi General Plo Koon to the crew aboard Pod 1977[src]

Pod 1977 was a life pod carried aboard Jedi Master Plo Koon's Venator-class Star Destroyer Triumphant. It was destroyed during the Battle of Abregado.


"Let's cut this can open."
―A rocket battle droid referring to the pod[src]

Escape Pod 1977 was carried aboard Jedi Master Plo Koon's Venator-class Star Destroyer Triumphant early in the Clone Wars. As Master Plo Koon's fleet patrolled the Abregado system, General Grievous' mystery weapon, the starship Malevolence, ambushed the ship with its massive mega-ion cannon, removing all the craft's defenses and making it vulnerable to the Malevolence's turbolasers. As Koon's ship was bombarded, all of its escape pods were jettisoned, including Pod 1977. Later, as the pod floated through space, it was breached by rocket battle droids from a pod hunter, killing all those inside.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

This pod was named after the year 1977, when Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope was released. It appears in the episode Rising Malevolence in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
