- "I'm fairly sure you didn't request me from the Advance just to tell me Lieutenant Versio is alright."
- ―Gideon Hask, to Garrick Versio
The Advance was a starship in the Imperial Navy during the Galactic Civil War. Following his time at the Royal Imperial Academy, Lieutenant Junior Grade Gideon Hask served on the vessel as a pilot in its TIE starfighter squadron.
In 0 ABY, three days after the Battle of Yavin, Hask left the Advance when he was summoned to the planet Coruscant by Imperial Security Bureau Admiral Garrick Versio, after which the lieutenant was drafted into the Imperial Special Forces group Inferno Squad.
