The ZH-28 guard was a model of security droids manufactured by the Stonewall Labs company during the Imperial Period. This droid had a humanoid shape and was as tall as a medium-sized Human. The ZH-28 guard was able to fight using ranged weapons.[1]


ZH-28 guards were manufactured by Stonewall Labs prior to the Battle of Yavin. When the Stonewall Labs facility on Naboo was closed, security droids remained activated. Several ZH-28 guards, SWL-5 overseers, LC-92 antagonists, Mechthorians and B1-Series battle droids continued their patrol programs in the laboratory and in the surrounding area.[1] Circa 1 ABY,[2] a spacer was trying to acquire an experimental Old Republic droid module from a droideka in the Stonewall Labs facility. The spacer entered the laboratory and fought several ZH-28 guards to finally access the module.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The ZH-28 guards appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[3] The ZH-28 guards were added to the game as part of the "Legacy Quest" with the release of the "Publish 25", a.k.a. the "New Game Enhancements", on November 15, 2005.[4]

They shared the same model with the CY-M Prototypes[5] and the Chirq Council Mechanized Guardians.[6]
