|Chronological and political information|
Some time prior to the Battle of Yavin, Dana infiltrated the Star Destroyer Relentless, working undercover as an officer in the Imperial Navy. The warship's Captain, Parlan, did not suspect that she was a double agent. In this capacity, Dana forwarded top-secret Imperial information to her superiors within Alliance Intelligence.
Soon after the destruction of the Death Star, Captain Parlan captured a pirate named Quist. The prisoner, in order to avoid execution, bargained for his life by offering to reveal information pertaining to the Republic tactician Adar Tallon. Though many people believed that Tallon had died years prior to this event, Quist knew that Tallon was alive and hiding out on Tatooine.
The Rebels remembered and respected Tallon as a hero of the Clone Wars, and his tactics were used by Rebel pilots. However, the Galactic Empire wanted to capture Tallon and, quite possibly execute him because of his political crimes and his anti-Imperial ideas. To achieve this, Parlan called upon a number of bounty hunters, including Jodo Kast, and offered a bounty, designation 82,471, for the capture of Tallon.
Upon learning of this, Dana ran away to Kwenn Space Station to report her discoveries to the nearest Rebel cell, who were in the area aboard the starship Alabak's Gold. Unfortunately, another of Parlan's officers, Lieutenant Voor, discovered her disappearance. Jodo Kast tracked down Dana and killed her with one of his poisonous darts. In agonizing pain, Dana attempted to give all of her information to the Rebels before she died. Due to her sacrifice, Adar Tallon was rescued; he subsequently joined the Rebel Alliance.
