"You're right. We lost the boy. I lost an arm. But we're SCAR Squadron, sir. We never come home empty-handed."
―Sergeant Kreel, to Darth Vader[src]

Task Force 99, also known as Special Commando Advanced Recon, or shortly as SCAR Squadron,[2] was an elite Imperial stormtrooper squad led by Sergeant Kreel. One of their missions was to investigate Sunspot Prison, an installation that was recently abandoned by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]


Early serviceEdit

Task Force 99 was created by the year 2 BBY[7] where it was under the command of a sergeant, until it was eventually placed under the command of Sergeant Kreel.[2]

Hunting rebelsEdit

Days after the assault on Sunspot Prison, Task Force 99 arrived to the deserted station as they were tasked with tracking down Kolar Ludd. As members of the squad were unsure of what to do next, Sergeant Kreel informed them that their current mission did not matter anymore, as they had just received new orders.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Task Force 99 was named after Clone Force 99, which is also known as the Bad Batch. Both squads were comprised of members, of which each had a specialization, making them distinct to others in their particular corps.[8]

The events of the comic take place shortly after the Battle of Yavin, as established by the comic itself. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas established that the Battle of Yavin took place in 0 BBY. Therefore, Task Force 99 must have been formed by 2 BBY.
