|Chronological and Political Information|
Melch, designated as Laborer 429, was a Ugnaught slave laborer who worked on Reklam Station. Enslaved by the Galactic Empire, he and a number of Ugnaught laborers were forced to recycle old Y-Wing starfighters. Melch aided members of Phoenix Rebel Cell, as well as pirate Hondo Ohnaka, in capturing some of the Y-wings, which were to be used for the Rebel Alliance. In return, Melch and two other Ugnaught workers were allowed to escape the station with Ohnaka aboard a stolen Sentinel-class landing craft.
