"Hangar control, stand down!"
―The deck officer[src]

A human male served as a deck officer in Moff Gideon's Galactic Empire remnant aboard Gideon's light cruiser at the rank of lieutenant. When the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle designated Shuttle 2743 was chased by the Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft Slave I in 9 ABY, the deck officer helped clear the launch tube of the light cruiser by halting the launch of additional TIE fighters, allowing the shuttle to land in the hangar. Infiltrators aboard the vessel then exited and killed personnel in the hangar.


"Clear launch tube immediately."
―The comms officer's orders[src]

The deck officer served in a remnant of the Galactic Empire led by Moff Gideon, stationed aboard Gideon's light cruiser and holding the rank of lieutenant.[1] In 9 ABY,[2] a Lambda-class T-4a shuttle designated Shuttle 2743 was pursued by the Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft Slave I. The light cruiser's hangar deployed two TIE fighters, but orders soon came from a comms officer stationed at the bridge to clear the launch tube for the shuttle to land.[1]

The deck officer ordered hangar control to stand down through his comlink and halted a TIE which was getting ready to launch. The officer then watched Shuttle 2743 approach the launch tube, rushing out of the way when the shuttle landed into the hangar at high speed. From the vessel came an infiltration team which killed numerous personnel in the hangar.[1]
