- ―The Kloperian mechanic confronts R2-D2
This Kloperian mechanic was part of a group of 50 Kloperians working on Coruscant to upgrade the New Republic's starfighters. The Kloperians were installing detonators in the starfighters on behalf of the Dark Jedi Kueller. This mechanic found R2-D2 jacked into a computer terminal where the astromech droid was not authorized to be. The Kloperian took the droid and its counterpart, C-3PO, into the hangar bay where the Kloperians were working and locked them into a closet. The droids were later released.
