I have some special plans for this little astromech, so be on the look out!

History:

Having lost his faithful R4-P17 astromech droid during the space battle to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, Obi-Wan Kenobi was outfitted with a new brassy-colored droid for his mission to Utapau. In his quest to find Grievous and bring an end to the Clone Wars, Kenobi flew with R4-G9 (Geenine) on his starfighter's wing.

Playing a decoy gambit, Obi-Wan instructed the loyal droid to pilot his Jedi starfighter offworld while he secretly remained behind in order to track down the deadly General.

Why R4-G9:

When the Jedi starfighter development program transitioned from the wedge-shaped Delta-7 Aethersprite model to the forked Eta-2 Actis interceptor, Obi-Wan Kenobi was one of the first Jedi to pilot the next generation model. In doing so, he temporarily left R4-P17 model behind, since the truncated astromech was specifically designed for the Delta-7. In the interim, he was briefly assigned R4-G9.

Uncomfortable with piloting to begin with, Kenobi eliminated as many unknowns as he could by requisitioning a direct link between his two droids to transfer all flight performance history from Arfour to Geenine.

Special Note:

The color scheme of R4-G9 was selected by vote by members of Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club in the summer of 2003.

That's one of the most beautiful, and well-done customs I've seen in a very long time!

Good job! :-D

Edit: Heh, I just noticed it was you, Kaminoan, I should've expected nothing less than the best from you! Fantastic.
