"I'd be honored to be mistaken for you—for any of you."
―Col Takbright to Wedge Antilles[src]

Col Takbright was a human male from Uquine[1] who served as a pilot in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.[2] Because his voice sounded exactly like Wedge Antilles's voice, Takbright was nicknamed Fake Wedge by some of his fellow pilots. He was known for his short temper. During the Battle of Yavin, Takbright was one of the pilots that stayed at the base on Yavin 4 due to there being fewer available fighters than pilots. He followed the battle from the base's war room.[1]
