"I'm hit!"
―Ekelarc Yong's last words[1]

Lieutenant Ekelarc Yong was a Human male who served in the Rebel Alliance as a starfighter pilot during the Galactic Civil War.


Ekelarc flew as Gray Three as a Y-wing starfighter pilot[3] with Gray Squadron[2] under Colonel Horton Salm during the Battle of Endor.[1]

He held the rank of lieutenant at the time of the battle.[3]

Following the destruction of a wingless Mon Calamari star cruiser by the second Death Star, Ekelarc joined the Millennium Falcon and a squad of starfighters, including an X-wing flown by Grizz Frix and his Y-wing, against the Imperial Fleet.[1]

During the attack on the Star Destroyers, he was shot down by two TIE fighters. Losing control and spinning wildly, he made one last cry, "I'm hit!," before crashing into the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Chimaera.[4]

His astromech droid during the battle was R5-P9.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Ekelarc Yong first appears as an unidentified character in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. In the film, he was most likely portrayed by English actor Timothy Sinclair, who was listed as a Y-Wing pilot on a Production Callsheet, along with Eiji Kusuhara and Errol Shaker.[5] Ekelarc Yong had no known canon name for years, though he had been mistakenly referred to by the fanon name "J'ef Hsu," and the call sign "Gray Four." His name and call sign were finally revealed in an action figure set "Battle Over Endor," from Hasbro.[3]
