Dr Aphra, OOO And BT-1 Make Their Way Into The Wider Star Wars Universe

Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca's run on Darth Vader for Marvel Comics has been a much praised one. And has spun off the characters Dr Aphra, OOO and BT-1 into their own ongoing Star Wars: Doctor Aphra series.

But it hasn't stopped there.

O-O-O- and BT-1 have role playing game figures, cards and missions from  Fantasy Flight Games for the Imperial Assault game.


BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack

First introduced in the Darth Vader comics, BT-1 and 0-0-0 serve the interests of the Galactic Empire with a special relish for destruction. 0-0-0 is a protocol droid specially equipped to interrogate and eliminate captives, while BT-1 possesses enough hidden firepower to destroy an entire squad of enemy soldiers. With their unique skills, you'll be able to field these two droids in any Imperial strike team with the release of the BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack.

No matter where your Imperial Assault campaigns take you in the Star Wars galaxy, the Rebel heroes will have reason to fear to glowing red displays of BT-1 and 0-0-0. A new campaign Agenda mission challenges the heroes to rescue prisoners from an Imperial interrogation facility on Kessel—but if you fail to rescue the captives, you'll face BT-1 and 0-0-0 as villains throughout the rest of your campaign.

Your skirmish games aren't forgotten in this Villain Pack, either. You'll find a new skirmish map with two unique missions, giving you the opportunity to battle through the twisted corridors of the Tarkin Initiative Labs. Five new Command cards are also added to your arsenal, many of which make your droids even stronger—such as Shared Experience, which focuses your Droids and Vehicles and returns to your hand whenever a Droid or Vehicle is defeated.

While Dr Aphra is a playable character in Star Wars: Force Arena, alongside Darth Vader.
