- "In his first mission we went against an Imperial convoy. It launched two dozen TIEs at our squadron. Biggs lit and vaped five, making him an ace, but another pilot claimed his number-three kill. That kill made the other pilot an ace-I think he was on his fifteenth mission at the time. Biggs gave the guy the smirk and let him have it. And thereafter when Biggs got five of something, he'd give this guy the third one."
- ―Wedge Antilles, about Biggs Darklighter
In the weeks leading up to the Battle of Yavin, a group of starfighters belonging to the Rebel Alliance raided a convoy of the Galactic Empire. A EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate that was protecting the convoy launched twenty-four TIE/LN starfighters at the Rebels. Five of them were destroyed by the Rebel pilot Biggs Darklighter, who was flying his first mission for the rebellion. Amil Karsk, another rebel pilot, claimed Darklighter's third kill, however, which secured his status as an ace and denied the honor to Darklighter. Wedge Antilles was also flying for the Rebels.
