Imperial Sentry Droids were a model of Sentry Droids that were utilized to serve the Galactic Empire. They were used as guards and even for combat training for certain individuals that are Imperial. Many of the droids were stationed aboard Imperial vessels, such as Class four container transports and Imperial Star Destroyers.


Imperial Sentry Droids were droids that were designed for combat training, but should one of the activated sentry droids fall in a real attack, the remaining deactivated droids would power on and openly engage. The droids were described to share a similar resemblance of an ordinary humanoid and the chassis of a Separatist B2 Super Battle Droid. They were well-equipped with a single blaster on the right arm and a hand on the left arm. They could also stun hostile targets. The droid was armored and could take several shots from small arms fire. Imperial sentry droids could also be reprogammed into Assassin Droids.


In 2 BBY, four Imperial sentry droids were stationed aboard an Imperial Class four container transport that was trapped in the stormy atmosphere of the planet Wynkahthu. When the Spectres and the pirates Hondo Ohnaka and Azmorigan boarded the ship, they accidentally reactivated one of the sentry droids. This sentry droid knocked out Azmorigan and the rebel Garazeb Orrelios and threw them into the ship's brig. Later, Azmorigan managed to shoot the droid and destroy it. However, this activated the other sentry droids who attacked the rebels and pirates. The droids were destroyed when the container transport descended into a vortex.

Later, Grand Admiral Thrawn kept two sentry droids aboard his flagship Chimarea to practice hand-to-hand combat. He used the override code "Override Rukh" to deactivate them when they were not needed. The rogue Imperial Security Bureau Agent Kallus later reprogrammed these droids to attack Thrawn in order to provide a distraction for he and his rebel comrades to escape.

Behind the scenesEdit

The sentry droids were inspired by the Dark Troopers seen in the video game Star Wars: Dark Forces.
