Bob Hudsol was a male human who served as a commander and later general in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire. Hudsol was killed when his starship was destroyed during the assault on the Mako-Ta Space Docks.


Bob Hudsol was a commander[5] in the Alliance to Restore the Republic. When the Alliance attacked the Empire's Death Star battlestation in the Battle of Yavin, Hudsol monitored the attack from the Rebel strategy center in the Great Temple on the moon Yavin 4. After Death Star was successfully destroyed, Hudsol attended an award ceremony in the temple where the pilot Luke Skywalker and the smuggler Han Solo received medals.[3] As soon as the ceremony ended the Rebels rushed to evacuate Yavin.[6]

After a failed attempt to persuade Regent Dors Urtya of Mon Cala to join the Rebel Alliance, Hudsol had been promoted to the rank of general, and was present at an Alliance High Command meeting during which Princess Leia Organa detailed a plan to rescue King Lee-Char in order to sway the Mon Calamari to join the rebel cause.[4] As the fleet assembled at the Mako-Ta Space Docks, Hudsol's ship was the first one completely outfitted and the first to pass through tests. During the assault on the Mako-Ta Space Docks by the Empire's Death Squadron, Hudsol was in his starship when it was destroyed and exploded in a fireball, killing him.[2]
