OS-72-8 was the designation of a TIE/LN starfighter pilot who served in the Imperial Navy by[1] 3 ABY. That year,[2] the Galactic Empire occupied the planet Bespin. During the occupation, the YT-1300 light freighter Millennium Falcon managed to escape the planet,[3] and OS-72-8 was among the TIE pilots who subsequently pursued the freighter.[1] However, the TIE fighters were unable to capture the Millennium Falcon, with the freighter managing to evade Imperial capture in space.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

OS-72-8 was created for 2003's The Empire Strikes Back expansion set of Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Trading Card Game. Although the card identified OS-72-8 as a TIE fighter designation,[4] the 2008 The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia identified OS-72-8 as the TIE fighter's pilot.[1] This article assumes The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia is correct, and treats OS-72-8 as the TIE pilot.
