"I know I'm going to regret asking this. But how exactly do I fit in?"
―Meck Odom to Kyle Katarn — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

Meck Odom was a Human male Imperial officer who served the Galactic Empire and later joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. He was assigned to the research facility on Danuta. He was an extremely spiritual person and a supporter of the B'omarr Order.


"You think I'd miss my chance to talk to the most infamous member of my class? You should see the HoloNet broadcast on you, Kyle. They've got you up on desertion, treason, and murder."
―Meck Odom to Kyle Katarn — Quote-audio Listen (file info)[src]

Odom was once the best friend of Kyle Katarn when they were roommates during their tenure at the Academy of Carida. Odom's parents and sister came to his graduation and invited Katarn (who was alone) to stay with them that night. Katarn had a crush on Odom's sister. Later, while Katarn was on a mission to steal the partial set of Death Star plans from the city of Trid, he encountered Odom before infiltrating the research facility. Odom was persuaded to shut down the base's outer perimeter, allowing Katarn an easier entry. During the skirmish, the two staged a blaster shot that wounded and rendered Odom unconscious, hoping that this would remove Odom from suspicion.

It is unknown whether Odom was implicated in the Danuta incident, whether he was able to defect to the Rebellion, or whether he continued to serve the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. At the time, Odom was not entirely certain he had done the right thing—his true loyalty was to saving lives, not to the Empire or Rebellion—but he comforted himself with the knowledge that only time would tell.

Behind the scenesEdit

Meck Odom was portrayed in Dark Forces: Soldier for the Empire audio drama by Kale Brown, the same voice actor who portrayed Biggs Darklighter in the Star Wars radio drama.[source?] He is mistakenly called "Odom Meck" throughout the audio dramatization and is listed by the mistaken name on the Dark Forces: The Collector's Trilogy audio drama box.
