During the early months of Year 1, David "Dr. Fro" Salohah, a Corellian, joined the Rebel Alliance for ideological reasons and flew A-wings. Circa Year 2, he rose to the exalted position of Director of Rebel Intelligence. He was later elevated to a position in the Rebel Alliance High Command and, on Year 2 Day 164, he became the president of the Rebel Alliance.
During his Presidency, an alliance was signed by the Rebel Alliance and Hapes Consortium, under which the Rebel Alliance provided economic assistance to the Hapans. This assistance is thought to have been as much as 50 million credits a month.
