"One cannot do less than is required, nor more than is allowed."
―Pons Limbic

Pons Limbic[2], known by the nickname "Braniac" by the smuggler BoShek, was a male Siniteen who was present in Chalmun's Cantina when Luke Skywalker and Han Solo met for the first time.[1][3] BoShek gave him that name because he could calculate hyperspace jumps without any help of a navigation computer.[1] He was sitting at a table with Arleil Schous, Bom Vimdin, and an unidentified gold-skinned man.[3]

Behind the scenes

During production of A New Hope, the character was referred to as "Brainee," "Cranium Head" and "Crater Head."[2] It was the CCG that first gave him his nickname "Brainiac," and his true name was not revealed until the article "Cantina Roll Call: Shedding Light on Some Alien Aliases" was updated for the 2008 StarWars.com site redesign.[4][2]

Both the pons and the limbic system are structures within the human brain.

Brainiac is also the name of a character in the DC Universe.
