"Not to judge a droid by his plating, but one look at their paint jobs, and you know they're nothing but trouble!"
―R0-GR writes about R4-I9 and R2-Q5[src]

R2-Q5 was an R2 series astromech droid. Made by Industrial Automaton, he served the Galactic Empire aboard the DS-2 Death Star, performing maintenance and repair as needed. Like many Imperial astromechs, he was fitted with spy devices allowing human overseers to monitor personnel.[1] He single-handedly thwarted IG-88's software infiltration of the Death Star II.[3] During the era of the Resistance, R0-GR included R2-Q5 in "droidography."[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

R2-Q5 first appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and was first identified in canon by this name in the reference book Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded. While the title states that many droids like him are fitted with secret spy devices, it does not specify whether R2-Q5 specifically is in fact fitted with these.
