Position Description[edit]

The Commodores are both the commanders of a TIE Corps ship, and also, fictionally, the ship's escorting battlegroup. They control their ship's operations, both day to day and in battle, as well as the TIE Wings and/or squadrons on board their ships unless overruled by the Fleet Commander, a Command Officer or a Battlegroup Commander. Commodores are drawn from exceptional Wing Commanders and it should be noted that command of one's own ship is considered the highest honor within the Imperial Navy.

Rank: The minimum rank for Commodore is Rear Admiral. The maximum is Admiral.

This position was not used between 2009-2013, however it got reinstated in March of 2014 with the commissioning of a second ship, the Imperial-II Class Star Destroyer Warrior. The first two Commodores after the position's reopening were High Admiral Frodo March (commanding the Warrior), and Rear Admiral Elwood the Brave (leading the ISD-II Hammer).

The Commodore is expected to attend official meetings, online conferences, make Message Board posts, etc. as often as possible. Unlike the Wing Commander, who handles the day-to-day management of a TIE Wing, the Commodore deals with public relations, fleet politics, and should generally make themselves available for questions and comments. A great deal of E-Mail correspondence can be expected. (average 10-20 hours/month).
