The TIE scout was a starfighter variant of the TIE family of Imperial warships that was equipped with a hyperdrive and was used for reconnaissance missions.[2] As with all space crafts of the Imperial Era-TIE line,[1] the scout ship[2] was manufactured by Sienar Fleet Systems.[1]

One functional TIE scout was present within the wreckage of the second Death Star on Kef Bir by the time of the Resistance's mission to Kef Bir,[4] which took place long after the Death Star's destruction over Endor.[5] It was used by the stranded Ben Solo to depart from the ocean moon and travel to[4] the distant Sith world of Exegol[5] in 35 ABY.[6] There, the Jedi evaded[4] the planet's chaotic atmosphere[5] as he landed the space craft before the Sith Citadel with success, and made for the Sith Lord Darth Sidious on foot for a final confrontation.[4]

Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker's events is dated to 35 ABY as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states its events took place one year after the Starkiller Incident, which took place in 34 BBY per Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Because the film depicts a TIE scout being commandeered by Ben Solo, the event must also have occured in 35 ABY.
