Zal Dinnes was a human female pilot who served in the Alliance to Restore the Republic. During the Galactic Civil War Lieutenant Dinnes was assigned to the Tierfon Launch Base as a member of the Tierfon Yellow Ace starfighter squadron. When encroaching Imperial patrols forced the rebels to scuttle the base and the Yellow Aces to be disbanded, Dinnes, along with Jek Tono Porkins and two other pilots were transferred to the Rebel base on Yavin 4 where Dinnes and Porkins were assigned to Red Squadron, with Dinnes obtaining the callsign Red Eight.[4] She was shot down and died during the Battle of Yavin.[3]
