The Basics

Poe Dameron assigns the gifted but green Resistance pilot Kazuda “Kaz” Xiono to an undercover mission: he will pose as a racer on the Colossus, a massive refueling platform on the Outer Rim ocean planet Castellon. Sources tell the Resistance that someone on Castellon is helping the First Order, and Kaz must find out who it is. On the Colossus, Kaz meets Yeager, Tam, Neeku, and their trusty, slightly rusty astromech, Bucket — together, they form Team Fireball, named for Kaz’s ship.

A T-85 X-wing in Star Wars Resistance.

  • The X-wings in the opening sequence are the T-85 model — the latest version of the craft first introduced as the T-65 in the original Star Wars. The X-wings seen in the Resistance are a slightly older model, the T-70.

  • Early notes about Kaz’s character describe him as “like a bird, hopping around clumsily on the ground, but put him in the air and he is awesome.”

Vonreg's TIE fighter in Star Wars Resistance.

  • Hyperdrive-equipped TIE fighters were a rarity in the days of the Galactic Empire, but the current technology of the First Order makes it possible, especially in high-end models like Major Vonreg’s ship.

  • The New Republic crest was first described in the Aftermath series of novels; this is its first on-screen appearance.

A race around the Colossus in Star Wars Resistance.

  • Greg Proops returns to Star Wars to voice a race announcer, but it’s not the two-headed announcer from The Phantom Menace’s podrace. Although the voice is the same, it’s more akin to a copycat invoking a classic announcer style.

  • Gorgs were first introduced in the Mos Espa street market sequence of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. A hapless Jar Jar Binks tried to eat a gorg from an angry vendor without paying for it first.
