"Come on, come on, come on, come on!"
―Vangos Grek[src]

Vangos Grek was a human male pilot who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War as Blue Six. He flew with Blue Squadron during the Battle of Scarif.


The human male pilot Vangos Grek was initially part of the Tierfon Yellow Aces. He was then part of the four-pilot contingent that was reallocated to Base One on Yavin 4.[1] In the beginning battle of the Galactic Civil War, Grek participated in the Rebellion's attack on the Galactic Empire's Shield Gate above the planet Scarif, flying a T-65B X-wing starfighter in Blue Squadron.[2] Grek, under the callsign of Blue Six,[1] attempted to followed Blue Leader General Antoc Merrick through the Shield Gate opening per Admiral Raddus' orders; however the Imperials were able to close the gate before Grek and another Blue Squadron pilot entered, resulting in their deaths. His last act was a war cry as he impacted into the shield. He could be heard over the combat chatter as the Squadron attempted to enter the shield gate.[3]
