"This is Team Nine! Taking heavy fire! Can't see anything in all this smoke! But this droid fights like a…"
―A stormtrooper of Team Nine[src]

Team Nine was a stormtrooper response team made of twelve soldiers that was stationed aboard an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer. When the Rebel astromech droid R2-D2 traveled aboard the Star Destroyer to rescue C-3PO, the droid caused confusion aboard the ship resulting in Team Nine and Team Twelve firing at each other.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"Both teams are down. Perhaps...we should alert Lord Vader."
"Bite your tongue. Send five more squads!"
―Team Nine's Star Destroyer commander and a deck officer[src]

Although the response team numbered 12 Imperial stormtroopers, it was referred to as a squad by their angered Imperial II-class Star Destroyer commander.[1] This contradicts Star Wars Super Graphic: A Visual Guide to a Galaxy Far, Far Away, which establishes the quantity of stormtroopers within a squad of the Stormtrooper Corps to be 10.[2]
