The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

Hello fello members of the 501st\ Galactic Empire. I am Admiral Robert and i am currently the fleet commander of fleet Orion 1. But i wasn't always a Fleet commander you know. i will start of with the year 22 BBY which was during the Clone Wars. Now as you may know, the only clones are marines or soldiers. i had enlisted to join the Navy. I first went through officer training and later became a Lt. aboard a acclamator- class frigate which was apart of the Orion 1 fleet.
I served as " Mission Control " i basically informed clone squadrons, ARC troopers, Commandos, and clone commanders of their objectives. One Day the Orion 1 fleet was over Felucia preparing for a ground assault and i was in the Bridge of one of the Acclamator- class frigates (just reminding you that i was a Lt. at the time) by the holographic Battle map ( Map of Battle area) and i was telling an ARC trooper which route to take to get to the enemy general's base and as we were flying above Felucia at least 5 or 6 CIS Frigates came out of hyperspace and open fired upon us. Luckily, we were not the only ship above the planet the entire fleet was there, but i was only in an acclamator- class frigate so it had guns but not a lot. one of the CIS frigates took out a chunk from the side of the ship i was in and we had to activate the airlocks so that we wouldn't lose any more air. While I was trying to tell the ARC trooper what to do an enemy turret fired and destroyed the communications relay and i lost contact with the ARC trooper. Then the Venator fired one of its guns and blew up one of the enemy frigate's bridge. and then the ship i was on took out the shield generator on another CIS frigate. soon we had lost 4 out of the 12 ships in the fleet 2 of which being venator- class destroyers. within a few hours we had destroyed the enemy fleet and out of the 4 ships we lost 2 of them were right next to the ship i was in 1 venator and 1 acclamator. soon after the ARC trooper found the route on his own he had successfully sabotaged the CIS general's base we landed for a full assault of the planet and conquered it within an hour it was a glorious victory for the 501st, but soon the 327th star corps came in and replaced the 501st on the planet. after that the 501st piled onto the ship and we stopped for repairs and headed for Teth.
