Oratay was a substance that members of the Bith species enjoyed drinking in a slurry form. During the Galactic Empire's emergency summit on the planet Akiva, the New Republic pilot Norra Wexley noticed an elderly Bith couple drinking on their home's rooftop on the planet's capital Myrra, and assumed they were drinking oratay slurry due to the species love of the beverage. The couple then stopped drinking the slurry when an Imperial TIE/ln space superiority starfighter flew overhead, standing to fire at the starfighter with a blaster rifle and shout insults in their native tongue.
Behind the scenesEdit
