Pons Limbic was a Siniteen male who was nicknamed "Brainiac" for his ability to mentally calculate hyperspace jumps. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, he spent time in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on the planet Tatooine, sitting with the Arcona Hem Dazon, the Advozse Bom Vimdin, the Defel Arleil Schous, and the Stennes Shifter Braconnor Bakiska[1] near the door. While the group sat together, the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and the former moisture farmer Luke Skywalker entered the establishment looking for a pilot to take them to the planet Alderaan.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

During production of A New Hope, the character was referred to as "Brainee," "Cranium Head," and "Crater Head."[3] It was the CCG that first gave him his nickname "Brainiac," and his true name was not revealed until the article "Cantina Roll Call: Shedding Light on Some Alien Aliases" was updated for the 2008 StarWars.com site redesign.[4][3] The name went unchanged in the new, post-Legends canon, first appearing in Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.[1]
