Though small and unassuming - the astromech droid R2-D2 has proven to be a pivotal figure throughout the quest for freedom in the galaxy. Whether delivering Princess Leia's message to Ben Kenobi or accompanying Luke Skywalker in his X-Wing fighter as he delivered the fatal blow to the first Death Star - Artoo's actions have become legendary within the annals of the Revel Alliance. But unknown to his compatriots - Artoo already had plenty of time and experience at the center of action. Many decades earlier - he served on board the ship of the young queen from the planet Naboo. Even then - he displayed an unmistakable knack for helping others out of dire circumstances.
