- ―A stormtrooper of Team Nine
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.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Although the response team numbered 12 Imperial stormtroopers, it was referred to as a squad by their angered Imperial II-class Star Destroyer commander. 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.
