Much has in fact been made of Order 66, Palpatine’s secret command supplied in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to the replicate army to harm the Jedi, yet a lot less extensively recognized is Count Dooku's Legends timeline Order 99. Featuring in Star Wars comics, it was an order that came one year formerly in the Clone Wars. While it seems numerically to be out of order, as well as likewise to change 66 on its head, it fulfilled a vital component of Palpatine's approach to do away with the Jedi.
In the tale of Star Wars, Order 66 is a keystone event, gave its application functions as the climax for Revenge of the Sith, as well as likewise is vital to Palpatine's approach to handle the galaxy. It similarly gets ready for the setup of the Jedi in the first trilogy as well as likewise adheres to up; that of a diing religions whose professionals have in fact gone away, either harmed or in expatriation. Order 99 was a guideline for the Separatist Droid Army throughout the Clone Wars duration as well as likewise was taped in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Comic UK #6.26, “The Only Good Clanker”, developed by Robin Etherington with artwork by Will Sliney.

In “The Only Good Clanker,” Darth Sidious overviews his student Count Dooku to implement an experiment as well as likewise trouble “Order 99” to a Separatist B1 battle android took part in a conflict with Republic stress worldwide Bogoa, positioned in the Immerian Outback of the Expansion Region. Dooku's order requires the android to ignore its previous programs to get rid of the Republic resistance stress. Following this, the android, that relabels himself Coppertop, searches for adaptability, customizes his appearance (including a gold crest on his head, a red stripe on his top body, as well as likewise a cape), as well as likewise gives professional help to stress on both sides of the battle.
