Saber 4 was an Imperial Navy TIE/IN interceptor[2] which was manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems.[1] The interceptor was part of the Imperial 181st Imperial Fighter Wing's Saber Squadron[2] by 4 ABY,[3] and piloted by DS-181-4,[2] who served as the wingman of Major Turr Phennir,[4] also from Saber Squadron.[5] Saber 4 was often assigned to fly in a reserve position in battle, and bore a bloodstripe representing at least 10 kills made by DS-181-4.[2]

In 4 ABY,[6] DS-181-4 fought in the Battle of Endor,[7] where Alliance to Restore the Republic starfighters attempted to destroy the Empire's Death Star II battlestation with TIE pilots defending the Death Star from the Alliance starfighters. The battle ended in an Imperial defeat and the Death Star's destruction.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

Saber 4 was created for a card for 2000's Death Star II Limited expansion set of the Decipher, Inc. Star Wars Customizable Card Game.[2] Of note, the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies had DS-181-4, piloting a TIE/IN interceptor, added to the game as a non-player character in Game Update 20 of its The Complete Online Adventures expansion,[9] published on August 18, 2011.[10] Alliance to Restore the Republic players who requested Tier 7 Duty Missions from certain space stations had a chance to battle elite Imperial pilots, including DS-181-4.[9] However, it was never established if Saber 4 was the interceptor used by DS-181-4 in those Tier 7 Duty Missions.
