In Imperial Service Edit
Template:Rank plate A Pilot Officer in the Imperial Starfighter Corps was a rank given to graduates of a Naval Academy whom specialized in Imperial starfighters. Pilot Officers were allowed to fly starfighters, but were not given any authority in the squadron and usually given the "dirty" work the higher ranking officers did not wish to handle. Pilot Officers did have authority over the enlisted men of the Starfighter Corps, but generally did not give orders unless under the directive of a lieutenant or higher ranking individual.
