Description: Imperial Warrant Officer
Prefix: ID
Detachment: Imperial Officer Corps
Context: Star Wars Episodes IV and VI
This rankless variant on the Imperial Officer can be seen in ANH only in one where the unit leader moves out a squad of IN Troopers. They are also seen extensively in ROTJ as shuttle pilots, technical crew leads, and are the officers at the shield generator. They are not seen in ESB at all.


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. These items are not required, but are recommended.

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


  • This CRL is a work in progress. This costume may be approved by GMLs, but additional research should be done until the CRL is complete.
  • If you have this costume and would like to assist with this CRL, please contact your detachment leader!
  • Please note that the use of the word "should" below does not indicate that a requirement is optional. All instances of should will be replaced with must as this guide is completed.
