A Premature Execution of Order 66 - Star Wars The Clone Wars

The Battle of Ringo Vinda, also known as the Ringo Vinda campaign, took place at Ringo Vinda‘s orbital space station during the Clone Wars. During a period of the battle when forces of the Galactic Republic were advancing upon the command center of Separatist Admiral Trench, they lost their momentum when clone trooper Tup abruptly executed Jedi General Tiplar due to a malfunction in his behavioral modification biochip causing him to carry out Order 66 prematurely. The incident led Separatist forces to kidnap Tup on the orders of the Sith Lord and Separatist Head of State Count Dooku, but Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, Clone Captain Rex and ARC trooper Fives were able to rescue him before the Separatists could take him out of the system. The Republic subsequently sent Tup to Kamino for examination, while their forces continued to blockade the Separatists above the planet.
