This article is about the astromech droids model. You may be looking for individual droids named R9.

The R9-series astromech droid was the latest in Industrial Automaton's line of R-series astromech droids and the first created during the rule of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Industrial Automaton's R9-series was similar to its previous R-series models, but R9 droids were notorious for self-enhancing their preservation routines, even if it meant hiding data from their owners.

History[edit | edit source]

Pilots in the New Jedi Order used R9-series astromechs as in-flight navigators and mechanics aboard their StealthX starfighters. Jedi Master Luke Skywalker was accompanied on his mission into the Gorog nest by an R9 unit named Arnie—filling in for the operationally-challenged R2-D2—and Mara Jade Skywalker flew with an R9 astro-droid she referred to as "Nine".

Jaina Solo flew with an R9 unit named Sneaker in a Jedi StealthX when spying on the secret Corellian fleet during the Second Galactic Civil War and later with one called Rowdy a few years after the war's end.
