- ―Porkins talks to Biggs Darklighter, moments before his death
Jek Porkins was a male human trader and pilot from Bestine. He decided to abandon his homeworld after the Galactic Empire moved in and developed a new military base there, and he ended up joining the Alliance to Restore the Republic. During the Battle of Yavin, Porkins flew a T-65B X-wing starfighter as part of Red Squadron, where his callsign was "Red Six." However, his craft began to malfunction, causing him to be killed by turbolaser fire. Over three decades later, Porkins was remembered through the Porkins Belly Run, a Resistance flight maneuver named in his honor.
