Commander Mike Beidler is a retired Foreign Area Officer (military diplomat) and former aviator in the United States Navy who has served as a military technical adviser and continuity editor for a number of Star Wars authors. Creator of the Star Wars Literature Compendium, the earliest (1995) and—at one time—the most comprehensive literature timeline on the Internet, Beidler is considered the father of Star Wars chronologies and the inspiration for more recent and comprehensive timelines, such as Time Tales and Star Wars Timeline Project.

Beidler has been Tuckerized as several Expanded Universe characters (see below). He is, along with Tom Veitch and Rich Handley, wholly responsible for the infamous Scourge of the Nevoota Bee in-joke.
