Anakin Solo

In 25 ABY, Anakin Solo flew the Calrissian Runner—a modified racing TIE Advanced x1—at the Lando's Folly asteroid belt obstacle course. Like other "Belt-Runner" TIE Advanced x1s, the Calrissian Runner was customized for speed and the rigors of the course.

HistoryEdit

On a trip by the Skywalker and Solo families to Dubrillion, where Lando Calrissian was running a new mining operation on Dubrillion's sister world Destrillion and the Lando's Folly asteroid belt, the Solo children eagerly took the chance to "run the belt" by flying modified TIE Advanced x1s, enhanced with strong repulsor shields, along the edge of Lando's Folly. Using the Calrissian Runner, Anakin beat the more than five-and-a-half minute record made by his brother Jacen. However, his sister Jaina Solo set the new single-pilot record in her run.

Battle of DubrillionEdit

In 25 ABY, Lando Calrissian was alerted that Yuuzhan Vong forces were approaching the Belt-Runner I station, and Anakin and his siblings, Jacen and Jaina, prepared for battle.

Running the Belt TIE Ad G9

The Calrissian Runner, a modified "Belt-Runner" TIE Advanced x1

All Solo children flew modified TIE Advanced x1 Belt-Runners, but were instructed to stay near Dubrillion's surface, under the shield protection of Belt-Runner I. In orbit, Kyp Durron, Han Solo, and Leia Organa Solo battled in the Millennium Falcon, along with the fighters Calrissian had managed to recruit.

However, Belt-Runner I was destroyed, leaving the Solo children without shielding. After fighting near the surface for a while, they fought upwards, drawing the Yuuzhan Vong force away from Dubrillion, and towards Lando's Folly. Weaving in and out of the asteroids with the Force to guide them, they destroyed much of the invasion force. However, the exertion proved too much for Anakin Solo, who lost his concentration and made a blind hyperspace jump in the Calrissian Runner. However, his parents arrived at his destination system and brought him back to Dubrillion.

DescriptionEdit

Called a Belt-Runner from the name of the speed challenge set at the Lando's Folly asteroid belt, the Calrissian Runner was a TIE Advanced x1 starfighter that was modified for racing like other Belt-Runners for the asteroid belt course.

Behind the scenesEdit

Belt-Runner TIE Advanced x1s were represented by a miniature of the Calrissian Runner in the Scum & Villainy expansion of the Star Wars PocketModel TCG. Although all Solo children flew the course in Belt-Runners, only Anakin Solo is identified as the pilot of the promoted version of the same miniature in the game. The ship is printed with the same designs shown in Running the Belt, a Star Wars Roleplaying Game Adventure published in Star Wars Gamer 9, and written by J.D. Wiker and illustrated by Corey Macourek,[1] as well as the Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force.
