When he came to Yavin 4, Attam was placed in the assistant controller position in Starfighter Command. He was to take over for Heinz Snuffle, the senior controller, when Heinz needed a break. Otherwise, Attam just kinda read magazines. When Heinz suffered a fatal heart attack during the Battle Of Yavin, it was up to Attam to step in, but Limb Cabinets beat him to it. Lame.
Attam was awarded the Medal of Relatively Minor Accomplishment for his actions at the Battle of Yavin.
