Galactic Civil WarEdit
Battle of EndorEdit
Shortly before the Battle of Endor, Ten Numb was present during a briefing aboard the Rebel Alliance command ship, Home One. During the briefing, the Alliance High Command revealed a plan to destroy a shield generator installed on the moon Endor. The generator was protecting the Galactic Empire's unfinished second Death Star, stationed in orbit above the moon.
Ten Numb was assigned to Blue Squadron, piloting a B-wing starfighter under the callsign Blue Five. During the assault, Numb led Blue Squadron in an attack against Imperial command ships, resulting in the destruction of two Imperial Star Destroyers. Following the demise of the Death Star, Ten Numb joined the Rebels in celebration on the surface of Endor.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ten Numb was portrayed by creature technician Mike Quinn in the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.[source?] An unscripted scene of Ten Numb inside a B-wing cockpit was filmed for Return of the Jedi; however, the scene was deleted. In the shot, Numb could be seen wearing a green uniform, instead of the red B-wing suit seen in the film.
Early Star Wars media mistakenly portrayed Ten Numb as having a white suit. This confusion may have been caused by early preproduction photos from Return of the Jedi featuring Ten Numb wearing a white outfit. The "incorrect" photos of Ten Numb have since been digitally recolored to better match his film appearance.
