Three decades later, Nunb was a starfighter pilot in the Resistance. He fought in the First Order–Resistance conflict, including the Battle of Starkiller Base.
A jowled, mouse-eyed native of Sullust, Nien Nunb was an arms dealer and smuggler who piloted the Mellcrawler. After the Battle of Yavin, he helped Princess Leia smuggle an enclave of Alderaanian survivors off Sullust and then assisted the princess during the diversionary mission known as Operation Yellow Moon. Later, Nunb served as Lando Calrissian’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon during the Battle of Endor. 30 years later Nien flew with the Resistance at the Battle of Starkiller Base, where he helped to destroy the huge super weapon. He also served at the battle of Crait, piloting a Ski-Speeder. Nunb piloted the Tantive IV at the Resistance’s final attack against the First Order in Exegol. His ship was disabled when Palpatine shot force-lightning into the air. His fate after this is unknown. He spoke the liquid, chattering tongue of the Sullustans.
