Description: Wona Goban was a human female pilot of the Alliance to Restore the Republic who flew with Gold Squadron under the command of Gold Leader Jon Vander. In 0 BBY, Goban was part of the Alliance Fleet that scrambled to support rebel forces trying to steal the plans to the Death Star superweapon on the planet Scarif.
Flying a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber under the callsign Gold Nine, Goban engaged with the Imperial forces stationed above Scarif. Under orders from Admiral Raddus, she led a group of Y-wings in strafing the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Persecutor with ion torpedos. This disabled the vessel and allowed it to be pushed into the Shield Gate that had been blocking transmissions from Scarif.
Scramble for Scarif
Wona Goban was a human female who served as a member of the Starfighter Corps of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. In 0 BBY, the Alliance learned that the Galactic Empire was constructing a superweapon known as the Death Star and that plans revealing a fatal flaw in the weapon's design were being stored on the planet Scarif. After a rogue squad of rebels set out on an unauthorised mission to steal the plans on Scarif, the Alliance scrambled its fleet to provide support.
Goban was among the forces that arrived in the Scarif system, flying as Gold Nine in one of the BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bombers of Gold Squadron under the command of Gold Leader Jon Vander. Admiral Raddus, who commanded the fleet from his flagship, Profundity, ordered Gold Squadron and Red Squadron to defend the fleet from the Imperial Naval forces above Scarif, while Blue Squadron was sent to the provide support on the surface.
Strafing Star Destroyers
After part of Blue Squadron passed through, the Empire closed the Shield Gate above Scarif, blocking any further craft from reaching the surface. Gold Squadron and Red Squadron then conducted repeat attack runs on the gate's defense turrets and control linkages, but it quickly became clear they lacked the firepower to destroy it. Raddus then gave the command for the squadron to engage the Star Destroyers attacking their fleet, and Vander ordered his pilots to take advantage of an opening.
Goban then led a group of four other Y-wings in strafing the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Persecutor with ion torpedos. The barrage penetrated the Destroyer's deflector shields, which had been previously weakened by Blue Squadron pilot Barion Raner, and caused a systems shut down that completely disabled the vehicle. With the Persecutor floating dead in space, Raddus ordered the Sphyrna-class Hammerhead corvette Lightmaker to ram into the Destroyer, causing the Persecutor to collide with the Star Destroyer Intimidator and then the Shield Gate, destroying both. With the gate down, the rebels on the surface were able to transmit the Death Star plans up to the fleet and a portion of the rebel forces, including parts of Gold Squadron, then managed to successfully escape with the plans.
Personality and traits
Goban had tan skin and dark eyes.
While flying, Wona Goban wore an orange flight suit with two code cylinders on the left sleeve, a white flak vest, and a Diagnostech life support unit. Goban's K-22995 light flight helmet was white and gray with red-and-yellow highlighting, a checkered black-white pattern on each side, and a symbol emblazoned on the central ridge. She flew a BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber during the Battle of Scarif.
