The Imperial Bridge Crew consists of Non-Commissioned officers assigned to the bridge of a starship. These crew members monitor and coordinate the overall functions of the ship.


The 501st approval requirements are listed in black.

The Imperial Officer Corp Detachment defines additional, optional levels of costuming excellence. In the page below, items listed in blue are optional features that will improve the quality of the costume. Items listed in red are intended to further enhance the finished costume.

For 501st membership only the requirements in black need to be met.


This Visual Guide has been reviewed by the detachment staff and the LMO team and is certified for use as a minimum approval guideline for GMLs. GMLs are free to approve this costume type.
  • Any uncertainties or questionable aspects of the submitted costume should be brought to the appropriate DL/GML peer review section of the legion forum.

  • Front and rear "flaps" overlap on the sides and are about 4" (101.6 mm) high.
  • Front bill extends 3" down, decorated with 6 or 7 concentric stitches.
