"We just lost R1!"
Niv Lek after R1 was shot down[src]

"R1" was a human male[3] who served as a pilot in the Resistance during its conflict with the First Order. He fought against the First Order during the assault on Starkiller Base as a pilot of Red Squadron, a group of X-wing starfighters. During the battle, the pilot's X-wing was shot down by an enemy TIE fighter. The Resistance destroyed the superweapon shortly after.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

R1's X-wing appears in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. The subtitles misidentify the character as "Star-1", however this was corrected to "R-1" on the digital version on Disney+.

He appears in a cutscene during the Starkiller battle in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game as a generic Resistance pilot.[3]
