"We weren't prepared for anything like this."
―U.O. Statura, on Resistance casualties, during the assault on Starkiller Base[src]

U.O. Statura was a human male admiral and senior officer with the Resistance. Statura hailed from the planet Garel and had a scientific background. Statura's knowledge aided in the Resistance's efforts during their conflict with the First Order, in which he helped plan the assault on Starkiller Base, the First Order's superweapon, from their command center on D'Qar. Statura correctly predicted the attack on Starkiller Base would be successful if the Resistance crippled its thermal oscillator‎, which led to the destruction of the superweapon.

BiographyEdit

U.O. Statura was born on Garel sometime prior to the Galactic Civil War. By the time he was a teenager, he had fought against the Galactic Empire to liberate his homeworld. Following the Battle of Endor, he pursued a career in applied sciences. He was then recruited by General Leia Organa as commander of ship procurement and logistics for her Resistance forces,[1] becoming an admiral.[3] He was never far from Organa's side, as she relied upon Statura for advice and perspective.[1] After the destruction of the Hosnian system, he helped plan the assault on Starkiller Base.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

U.O. Statura was portrayed by Ken Leung in the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.[3] Leung previously played Miles Straume on the television series Lost, which was produced by J.J. Abrams, who directed, produced, and co-wrote The Force Awakens.[5]

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary
  2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary states that Statura was a teenager when the Galactic Civil War ended (at the Battle of Jakku). With a maximum age of nineteen at the Battle of Jakku and a minimum age of thirteen, it can be determined that Statura was born thirteen to nineteen years before the Battle of Jakku. The Battle of Yavin took place five years before the Battle of Jakku; thus it can be calculated that Statura was born between eight and fourteen years before the Battle of Yavin.
