In The Rise of Skywalker,

Kylo Ren takes an Imperial TIE Fighter from the Death Star II ruins to Exegol. Presumably he found the TIE Fighter in the Death Star ruins, since that's where he was left.

These ships have only ever been depicted as short-range fighter craft, and it seems to be from the Original Trilogy era, given where it apparently came from. How could it get between systems with no hyperdrive?

    I’d imagine he contacted the First Order to pick him up. – TheLethalCarrot Dec 20 '19 at 20:50

    he's Han Solo's kid and Anakin's grandson - you've never heard of Kylo's TIE fighter? It's the ship that made the Exegol run in less than 12 parsecs – NKCampbell Dec 20 '19 at 21:05

    @tilley31 Those were First Order fighters, but the fighter on Exegol looks like an Imperial TIE, going off of memory. – Milo P Dec 20 '19 at 21:39

    Makes sense. Guess I'll look closely in my re-watch tomorrow... – tilley31 Dec 20 '19 at 21:41

    @ZeissIkon The X-wing is established to have a hyperdrive, the vast majority of Imperial-era TIE fighters do not. – T.J.L. Dec 23 '19 at 18:02
