- ―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 scenesEdit
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.
