"Reorient the topside batteries to target the Resistance fleet, and prep our fighter squadrons for launch."
"General Hux ordered no fighter deployment. He feels a demonstration—"
"Do I need to explain the difference between 'prep for launch' and 'launch'?"
―Canady gives orders to Bascus[src]

Suday Bascus was a male human who served in the the naval forces of the First Order. Holding the rank of warrant officer, he served under Captain Moden Canady aboard the Mandator IV-class Siege Dreadnought Fulminatrix.[3] When being supplied with orders to reorient the Fulminatrix's topside batteries as well as prep the onboard fighter squadrons for launch in order to engage the Resistance during their evacuation from the planet D'Qar, Bascus briefly hesitated due to General Armitage Hux previously ordering for them to not deploy fighters due to wanting to give a demonstration to the Resistance, before Canady reminded him that there was a difference between the orders "prep for launch" and "launch."[4] Bascus perished aboard the Fulminatrix after the Resistance destroyed it in the ensuing skirmish.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

"He's just a rank and file member of the First Order. Suday is in one of the biggest battles of the film just trying to do what he believes in and manage the highly stressful wartime environment. He's confident but also aware that he and the crew could die in this battle."
―Orion Lee[src]

Suday Bascus was portrayed by Orion Lee in the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, the second installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.[2]
