Squadron Three was one of six squadrons that formed the 204th Imperial Fighter Wing, a fighter wing of the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.


Squadron Three[1] was a TIE fighter[3] squadron that was part six squadrons in the Galactic Empire's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing.[1] The squadron was led by Captain Wisp,[2] and one of its staff officers was Lieutenant Garmen Naadra.[1] Other members included Duchas Cherroi and Gargovik.[2]


Pandem Nai[]

In 4 ABY,[4] Wisp lost almost all of the squadron during the New Republic's attack on Pandem Nai.[1]


Around 5 ABY,[5] the squadron participated in an attack on Cerberon. After the attack, the squadron were tasked with searching for the New Republic remnant, and one its pilots, Lieutenant Garmen Naadra, was killed in the caverns beneath Troithe. Naadra was the first pilot lost since the battle against the Lodestar.[1]

Hyperspace upgrades[]

Sometime after leaving Cerberon, before the smirmish in the Ciaox Verith system, the squadron's ships were retrofitted with hyperspace docking rings they'd found in a Clone Wars-era supply cache. This lightspeed capability allowed the squadron's TIEs to carry out rearguard patrol operations in remote systems away from its headquarters on the Yadeez.[2]

Chadawa and Jakku[]

Later that year,[6] the squadron fought in a battle at Chadawa, and then later at the Battle of Jakku, where the 204th were defeated by General Hera Syndulla's New Republic forces.[2]

  4. Alphabet Squadron establishes that the attack on Pandem Nai takes place several weeks after Yrica Quell leaves Traitor's Remorse, where she had been held for one month, following her defection during the destruction of Nacronis two weeks after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. The attack on Pandem Nai must therefore have occurred in 4 ABY.
  5. StarWars.com In Shadow Fall, the Dark Secrets of Alphabet Squadron Revealed on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that Shadow Fall takes place approximately half a year after the Battle of Endor. Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know establishes that a standard year was 365 days long, while the sixty-first issue of Star Wars: Build the Millenium Falcon sets the length of a standard month at thirty-five days, with half a year therefore being equal to approximately five months. Furthermore, Before the Awakening states that Kes Dameron and Shara Bey moved to Yavin 4 around six months after the Battle of Endor, with Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dating the move to 5 ABY. Therefore, Shadow Fall must also be set around that year.
  6. Victory's Price begins eleven months after the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY, and features the Battle of Jakku, which Galactic Atlas in turn places in 5 ABY. Since Before the Awakening establishes that Kes Dameron and Shara Bey moved to Yavin 4 around six months after the Battle of Endor and Galactic Atlas dates their move to 5 ABY, Victory's Price must therefore be set in 5 ABY.
