- ―Lieutenant Alin to a spacer
Alin was a Human male lieutenant who served the Galactic Empire during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, Lieutenant Alin processed a spacer through an Imperial space station.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Alin was a non-player character in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts. He was added to the game when the developers revamped the game during the Combat Upgrade of April 29, 2005. A revised tutorial was added with the upgrade which included Lieutenant Alin.
Throughout the tutorial, Lieutenant Alin and other Imperial officers directed new players through a space station in order to help them get accustomed to the game mechanics. However, Alin was removed alongside with this tutorial when the developers introduced the New Game Enhancements on November 15, 2005. With this revamp, a completely new tutorial was added to the game in the form of Tansarii Point Station.
