An adaptation of the pre–Endor document and policies.


The High Command roster is currently accessible at

High Command constitutes the chief commanding body of The Galactic Empire... To understand how it factors into the GE's structure, note that it is not a unit such as a ship or squadron, and nor is it a true "major section" of the Empire such as the Imperial Navy or Academy. It is, in effect, a convenient collective name for the officers who are chief authorities over entire sections of The Galactic Empire or its operations.

Each High Command member is typically the last officer in the chain of command who may be approached with a specific type of question or concern before contacting the Supreme Commander... Inherently, this means that although they collaborate on specific projects or issues, their routine functions are highly autonomous, and not necessarily related to each other beyond the fact that each reports directly to the Supreme Commander.

It is also a very typical misconception to assume that "all High Command members are automatically superior to all non-members"... As put down in 'GE Structure', one's overall seniority within the Empire is determined by their rank, not position. However, positions do give their holders jurisdiction in their areas, and those of High Command are no exception.

Organisational Chart

High Command is divided into several segments, each containing several positions... Its organisational chart is below. Please click on individual High Command titles for in-depth position descriptions.

High Command


Core Commanders form the main part of Imperial High Command. The Supreme Commander and all Division Commanders are included in this group.


OpsDirs command Imperial Institutions, each of which oversees a specific area of The Galactic Empire's operations.


Civil Command is composed of civilian (political) authorities with high-level or administrative positions within the Empire.


As the name suggests, Imperial Dignitaries are exalted members of the Empire who are to be afforded all due respect. They may perform functions both practical and ceremonial.
