"No, my father didn't fight in the wars. He was a navigator on a spice freighter."
―Luke Skywalker[src]

A navigator for the Imperial Navy.

A navigator was a member of a starship's crew responsible for the vessel's navigation. As a child, Luke Skywalker was told by his uncle, Owen Lars, that his father was a navigator on a spice freighter, though in reality Anakin Skywalker was a Jedi Knight who fought in the Clone Wars.[1] When a Chiss Force-sensitive, usually a girl, was born with the ability of precognition, they were used by the Chiss to navigate Chiss ships through the Unknown Regions.[2]
