Disco troopers were the special branch of stormtroopers assigned to the Disco Death Star, whose supersonic mind-affecting ray could force an entire planet's population to wear platform shoes, wide collars, and boogie down.
Disco troopers were equipped with brilliant, flamboyant white and blue uniforms with stylish capes and an open front. Disco troopers were required to have thick black body hair prominently displayed through their uniforms. Afro hairstyles under their helmets were optional, but encouraged. Their blasters were specially equipped with funk and soul settings, with a prominent syncopated electric bass line.
Disco troopers were superior to normal stormtroopers in battle because they had a great talent for... stayin' alive, stayin' alive, hah! hah! hah! hah! stayin' alive, stayin' alive. They also ran faster... because they could do the hustle!
They were all killed when the disco Death Star fell from the roof of studio 54.
