For other uses, see Shana (disambiguation).

Shana was an alleged[2] human[1] TIE fighter pilot in the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing who Lieutenant Yrica Quell claimed to have flown with during her time in the unit. Quell deserted from the Empire on the planet Nacronis[2] around 4 ABY,[3] and, in an attempt to cover up her role in a genocide on the planet, reported to the New Republic IT-O Interrogation Unit IT-O, stating that Shana pursued her, along with additional TIE pilots Major Soran Keize and Tong. Quell also claimed that during the chase, she managed to evade Shana and Tong, causing them to get caught in Nacronis's siltstorms and crash into each other as they decelerated.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Shana was mentioned in the 2019 novel Alphabet Squadron, the first instalment of the Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron trilogy written by Alexander Freed.[2]


Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Ultimate Star Wars establishes that the TIE fighter pilots of the Galactic Empire were all humans.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 2.5 Alphabet Squadron
  3. In Alphabet Squadron, Yrica Quell defected from the Galactic Empire during the destruction of Nacronis, which took place two weeks after the Battle of Endor, which is in turn dated to 4 ABY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Quell must have therefore defected around that year.
