- ―Huck Trompo knocks over Essanda's drink while talking to him
Lum was an alcoholic beverage served at the Zero Angle, a bar located in the Imperial Bright Jewel Oversector Flight Base on the moon Axxila III. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Artur Essada, a TIE fighter pilot in the Imperial Army's Nashtah Squadron, drank lum while at the bar. Essada's squadmate Huck Trompo spilt the pilot's lum while gesturing.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Lum was created by Michael A. Stackpole for the X-Wing: Rogue Squadron novel released in 1996, and subsequently appeared in a large number of other Legends stories. The drink's first appearance in canon was in "Last Call at the Zero Angle", a short story written by Jason Fry and published in Star Wars Insider 156 in 2015.
