R2-Q2 served for the Galactic Empire for several decades with an Imperial reconnaissance fleet in the Expansion Region aboard the Star Destroyer Devastator. He had one of the most extensive maps and list of systems inside of his databanks. Q2 was also among the Imperial droids that scoured the Tantive IV's databanks for information after that vessel was captured over Tatooine in 0 BBY.
Sometime around the year 2 ABY, he was captured by Kyle Katarn to look through his databanks regarding info about the Imperials. After he and the Rebellion found what they wanted, a soldier hacked into his systems and turned his alignment from bad, to good. 30 years after the Battle of Endor, R2-Q2 served The Resistance as a member of Phantom Squadron.
