Imperial Navy Commandos were specialized variants of Imperial Stormtroopers that served as security units within the Stormtrooper Corps, being seen in most use during the Great Jedi Purge to guard various Imperial outposts across the galaxy including the TIE Fighter construction facility over Nar Shadda to the Imperial base camps on the planet Felucia. Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller, encounter several Navy Commandos during his missions.
Early Service Edit
Being utilized purely as a security force rather than a standing military unit, Navy Commandos were often deployed in large numbers to guard and patrol their position, as seen throughout the Great Jedi Purge.
Battle of Nar Shadda Edit
Numerous Imperial Navy Commandos were deployed by the Galactic Empire to aid in securing the Imperial TIE Fighter construction facility orbiting Nar Shaddar. When the rogue Jedi Master, Rahm Kota's personal rebel militia attempted to take control of the facility, the Navy Commandos assisted the Imperial Stormtroopers onboard in trying to prevent the station from falling into the Jedi's hands. When Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Starkiller, was dispatched to the station with orders to eliminate Rahm Kota the remaining Commandos and Stormtroopers fought against the Sith and were all subsequently overpowered by Starkiller, with a large majority of both Commandos and Stormtroopers being killed. Despite this, some Commandos and Stormtroopers managed to survive, most likely avoiding Starkiller and were eventually able to retake control of the station from the rebels after Rahm Kota was supposedly killed by Starkiller.
