Bickey was a New Republic pilot candidate in the Screaming Wookiee Squadron, a remedial Y-wing training squad considered by most pilots as a "last resort" for pilots on the verge of washing out. The squadron was run by Atton Repness aboard the Nebulon-B Frigate Tedevium. Bickey was an eager and boyish young pilot who was anxious to demonstrate his skill and bravery. He said he would prefer to die young, in battle against his enemies, than old and content on a farm somewhere. Gara Petothel, an undercover Imperial Intelligence agent serving in his training squadron, was impressed by his enthusiasm, which went against her prior training that New Republic pilots were unrestrained wild dogs.
