History:

R2-EXs past is shady and for the most part unknown.  This particular droid was captured with a dozen or so other astromechs in an Imperial convoy traveling through the Corva sector in the Outer Rim.  These R2 units were sent to the Alliance Research and Development center where they were "rehabilitated". After a full memory wipe and probe for Imperial bugs, the droids were reprogrammed, tested and shipped out to several Alliance Squadrons.  R2-EX found his way onboard the CRS Liberty and was quickly assigned to Lieutenant Finelli, whose previous droid, "Zero", was destroyed in the campaign "Operation Harvest".

Always striving to improve his programming, he is most commonly found in the hanger near his fighter assignment, making sure everything is operational and in perfect working order.  R2-EX was dubbed the name "Rex" because of the likeness he has to a dog.  Very loyal, playful and protective.  Finelli trys to keep his distance from the droid, and ignores its existence most of the time, besides in the cockpit.  Lieutenant Finelli has been caught abusing (kicking) R2-EX for following him through the Liberty's corridors and has been reprimanded twice.  Still, with all the abuse Rex continues to work hard on gaining his partners trust and friendship and does so by watching Finelli's six in the X-wing fighter to the best of his ability.

History:

"Dale" is one of the more experienced astromechs in the Alliance.  His career began in Black  Squadron,  flying with them until the squad was decommissioned by Star-Fighter command. Instead of  being transferred with his designated pilot,  the Alliance moved R2-E3 to the CRS Independence where he was assigned to fly with trainees.  The Independence was a home to Dale for 2 years,  the young pilots that flew with him became some of the most talented pilots in the Alliance because of the suggestions he often relayed to them inside the fighter.  On numerous occasions graduates often put in requests to have R2-E3 assigned to them permanently as they were transferred out of the Independence and into the Galactic War,  but were denied.  Eventually the Alliance realized it would be wise to move a special R2 unit like Dale to a squadron that could use his technical and tactical experience,  so he was transferred to the CRS Liberty.

Renegade Wing Command Staff put Dale to work upon his arrival as shot gun to Buccaneer Nine.  He flew with his pilot assignment for a half year until a fatal bombing run broke up their partnership.  Hyl was able to recover  Dale from the wreckage along with the body of the fallen Bucc.  Damage was minimum to the R2 but the loss of a pilot was a new experience for him,  the effects seemed so noticeable to the Droid Support Technicians that they informed the Command Staff,  who put Dale on "sick leave" until the Technicians indicated a normalisation of Dale's operating parameters. R2-E3 has recently returned to active duty but has not yet been assigned a Squadron or pilot.

History:

R2-I3's original nickname was "Shock" and was a repair astromech on the smuggling ship Silent Wing. Along with other R2's onboard, his duty was to maintain the navigation computer.  For years he fulfilled his assignment with little effort,  the navicomp always accurate.  This left the crew of the Silent Wing confident in the little droid's ability and forewent the usual precaution of double checking navicomp entries and settings before jumps.  Some how a virus, similar to that which had compromised a trio of astromechs of the then fledgling Rebel Alliance and almost resulted in the loss of 3 x-wing starfighters from Red Squadron prior to the battle of Yavin, infected the droid.  The virus went undetected by the ships tech's, and was only discovered after it was to late.  R2-I3 had intentionally (at least the virus' intention) altered the manually entered settings for a hyper jump to co-ordinates of it's own choosing. Unfortunately the co-ordinates used by the virus were some years out of date and the Imperial Garrison it was supposed to be heading for had been evacuated for safety reasons. The end result was the Silent Wing reverting to real space next to a supernova.  The intense heat began shorting out the ships computers, her crew confused on what had gone wrong. If it wasn't for the quick thinking and leadership of Captain Syphon, the ships fuel tanks would have blown,  disintegrating everything.  He was able to reset the hyper drive and jump back into hyper space. After a quick evaluation,  the crew was able to point the finger at the droid.

A month later the Silent Wing brought in needed supplies to the Liberty.  Captain Syphon decided to leave the still virus prone droid onboard the CRS. He had no use for "Shock" and his tech's were not positive on how to eradicate the virus.  The Liberty's droid team went to work, and were able to detoxify the astromech.  Along with a name change, the Liberty tech's wiped the droids memory clean.  Icarus is always ready for duty, and is anxious to fly.  A very sociable  droid,  he is many times found chattering away with other astromechs.  Icarus is currently waiting to be assigned to a permanent fighter.
