Cova Nell piloted the Resistance transport that delivered General Leia Organa and her team to Takodana. She landed her transport outside the ruins of Takodana Castle after Poe Dameron's squadron drove off the forces of the First Order following their temporary capture of Han Solo, Chewbacca, Finn, and the droid BB-8.[2]

Nell was a co-pilot[3] for Pammich Nerro Goode in one of the thirty U-55 orbital loadlifter that were used to evacuate the MC85 Star Cruiser Raddus after the First Order attacked the Resistance fleet.[4] Her vessel's passengers included General Organa and Captain Poe Dameron; it was one of the transports that made it to the surface of the planet Crait.[1] During planetfall they were comforted by General Organa, who reflected that the pilots would soon feel survivors guilt.[5] On Crait, the Resistance made a last stand against the First Order in an old Rebel Alliance outpost, with those who survived escaping in the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon.[1]
