In 20 BBY, the Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems battled for control over the planet Ringo Vinda. During the battle, the 501st Legion battled up to the Separatist command center, but clone trooper Tup strangely shot and killed Jedi general Tiplar. The officers with him decided that he needed to be taken back to Kamino for examination, and he was loaded aboard a convoy of one Nu-class shuttle and four ARC-170 starfighters. This trooper and six others watched over Tup.
However, as they were about to make the jump to hyperspace, they were ambushed by an HMP droid gunship, accompanied by several rocket-pack equipped super battle droids. The ARC-170s were all destroyed, and the shuttle was hit by a rocket. The pilot and copilot were killed when the buzz droids destroyed the cockpit, which resulted in oxygen being lost and gravity sensors projectors going down.
This trooper and the other escorts turned on their magnetic boots, and clung to the floor. They opened up a storage crate, and attached breath masks to their armor, also giving an unconscious Tup and a medical officer regular masks.
A trooper warned the rest of the clones of approaching droids, and this trooper listened as he spoke. Three buzz droids climbed into the shuttle, and the troopers blasted them, protecting Tup. However, the rocket droids soon came in, and battled the clones. Despite their zero-gravity training, they were all killed, as the hovering droids had the advantage.
