Behind the scenes[]

The "DS-73-5" name was coined by Wizards of the Coast in their 2002 A New Hope expansion of the Star Wars Trading Card Game. DS-73-5's card uses an image[2]—taken from the 1977 original trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope[4]—of a TIE fighter that was previously identified as "Black 4" in the 1996 A New Hope Limited expansion set of Decipher, Inc.'s Star Wars Customizable Card Game.[5] This article treats the TIE fighter in the Star Wars Trading Card Game DS-73-5 card image as a misidentified Black 4, and further avoids linking the DS-73-5 name to any of the onscreen TIE fighters in the 1977 film.
