Admiral Trench was last seen in “Cat and Mouse,” an episode from the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that, chronologically, is the first story to occur in the series. His ship was destroyed by Anakin but obviously spiders like him *are* hard to kill.


Though it is described in dialog and in the script as a medical frigate, the vessel at the end designated 517 uses the standard Republic frigate animation model.

This episode debuts a new, updated design for the super battle droid rocket trooper. A more basic repaint of the standard droid was seen in the Season One episode, “Jedi Crash.” This new design features custom rocket pods built into exaggerated shoulders, in a look that faintly echoes the female Zentraedi power armor from the Robotech animated series.
