"One cannot do less than is required, nor more than is allowed."
―Pons Limbic[2]

Pons Limbic,[3] known by the nickname "Brainiac" given to him by the smuggler BoShek, was a male Force-attuned[1] Siniteen who was present in Chalmun's Cantina when Luke Skywalker and Han Solo met for the first time.[1][4] BoShek gave him that name because he could calculate hyperspace jumps without any help from a navigation computer.[1] He was sitting at a table with Arleil Schous, Bom Vimdin, and Braconnor Bakiska.[4]

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.[5][3]

Both the pons and the limbic system are structures within the human brain.

Brainiac is also the name of a character in the DC Universe.
