When the Alliance re-formed into the New Republic, Kell resigned his commission as he chafed under the regulations imposed by the now-legal government. Making use of old allies still working within the military, he managed to requisition a pair of out-of-commission B-wing/E starfighters, which had been too damaged to be used by the military.

By the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Kell worked as a freelance pilot for anybody who could afford him.
