Chopper Base gets an unwelcome visitor in the next all-new episode of Star Wars Rebels. In “Warhead,” Zeb and Chopper bring a damaged droid found in the Atollon wilderness back to base. They discover, however, that the droid is a new Imperial probe programmed to spy on and destroy rebels.
First Maul, and now, an Imperial droid! Unfortunately for our Rebels, the secret of Chopper Base is not so secret anymore. With the Empire sending out probes to search for Rebel activity, it was only a matter of time before their location was discovered.
As AP-5 shows the new droid around, everything seems to be going okay until AP-5 says the words “Rebel base.” This jogs the droid’s memory banks, having suffered some sort of damage before arriving at Chopper Base. AP-5 recognizes this and states that the droid is remembering, but it’s too late. Fully transformed into a killing machine, the Rebels have a serious situation in their hands, and even if they stop the droid from destroying the base, the lack of report or transmission back to the Empire would be enough to warrant a personal visit.
