― Tycho Celchu, Rogue Squadron
"Fel is the best Imperial pilot alive."
― Tycho Celchu on his former piloting teacher, Soontir Fel (Star Wars Legends)

Also Called

  • Space Ace
  • Spacer
  • Space Jockey
  • UFO Intuition


The user possesses extraordinary skill and abilities in operating and piloting spacecrafts/ships as they usually credited with destroying multiple opponents in combat, outrun other vessels while crossing inhospitable area within one's galaxy or universe, and account for the majority of victories in any intergalactic war/conflict/battle.




  • Users are just normal people outside of their ships.
  • Not invincible, as the craft can still suffer damage.
  • Users can cause unintentional damage to the surroundings.
  • May need a certain level of exposure or training to be an effective pilot.
  • Cannot master use of every space-craft due to the infinite nature of space and the myriad of different technologies used by different species (indeed some craft are genetically or psychically-linked to just one user and/or crew and thus can NEVER be used by another).
  • Likewise due to the infinite nature of space a pilot will eventually encounter a pilot or species that is infinitely beyond their capability to counter.
