"But my father didn't fight in the Clone Wars. He was no knight-—just a navigator on a space freighter."
Luke Skywalker[2]

A navigator, also known as an astrogator, was a person who navigated starships.

Aboard starships, the navigator was responsible for plotting a vessel's course through hyperspace with the aid of a navigation computer. Calculating routes took a varied amount of time depending on the difficulty of the hyperspace jump; well-travelled routes and pre-calculated coordinates took minutes, while calculating the coordinates from scratch could take several hours. More difficult journies, such as attempting to calculate a jump from a position where the navigator had to take readings to verify the ship's position, could take up to a day.[1]

Kane Griggs served as a navigator aboard the New Republic Star Destroyer Emancipator during the Battle of Calamari.
