The story behind the TIE Fighter
The TIE Fighter was designed as a uniquely engineered alien aircraft that could be fully identified as the villain during battle. The idea for the TIE Fighter came to Colin after he had scribbled a drawing and saw the shape of the TIE Fighter in part of his sketch. The functions of the ship were intended to be a total mystery. It was never explained how people could enter or exit the TIE Fighter or how it could land or take off. These ships were stationed within the Death Star and dramatically emerged during reconnaissance and battle.
