- "I'm hit!"
- ―Ekelarc Yong's last words
Following the destruction of a wingless Mon Calamari star cruiser by the second Death Star, Ekelarc joined the Millennium Falcon and a squad of starfighters, including an X-wing flown by Grizz Frix and his Y-wing, against the Imperial Fleet.
During the attack on the Star Destroyers, he was shot down by two TIE fighters. Losing control and spinning wildly, he made one last cry, "I'm hit!," before crashing into the Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Chimaera.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ekelarc Yong had no known canon name for years, though he had been mistakenly referred to by the fanon name "J'ef Hsu," and the call sign "Gray Four." His name and call sign were finally revealed in an action figure set from Hasbro.
