Terba worked as a laborer at the Imperial junkyard Reklam Station which lay inside the gas planet of Yarma. He and his fellow Ugnaughts including Melch were used to dismantle various Y-Wing Starfighters. Terba tried to escape but was captured and sent to the Imperial prison on Naraka. There, he met Hondo Ohnaka and told him about the Imperial operations at Reklam Station.
Hondo, who had been imprisoned by the Empire following a skirmish at Nixus Hub 218, contacted the Ghost Crew and convinced them to help in return for sharing this information. Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, Garazeb Orrelios, and C1-10P raided the prison and rescued Hondo and Terba. The rebels particularly Sabine were reluctant to rescue a second person until Hondo assured them that Terba knew secrets that were vital to the Rebellion. During the escape attempt, Terba demanded a double share but was rebuffed by Hondo, who called him a "greedy little pig". Snubbed, Terba broke free of the group and fled outside the prison only to be blasted to death by an Imperial All Terrain Defense Pod. Despite his death, Hondo shared the information on Reklam Station with Phoenix Squadron.
Following Terba's death, Grand Admiral Thrawn realized that the rebels were going to attack Reklam Station after realizing that Terba had been Hondo's cellmate on Naraka. During the rebels' mission to Reklam Station, Hondo was able to convince the other Ugnaughts including Melch to assist them by telling them that he was a friend of Terba.
Personality and Traits
Terba was an opportunist and only shared information about Reklam Station to Hondo in return for financial gain and freedom. When Hondo refused to give him a double share of the reward, Terba abandoned his companion. In his eagerness to escape from Naraka Prison, Terba was fatally hit by laser fire from an Imperial AT-DP Walker.
