... A Sub&ndashLieutenant's Rank Insignia ...

The rank of Sub&ndashLieutenant (SL) is afforded to the most promising Ensigns, who move up to become flight leaders within the Imperial Navy's starfighter squadrons. It is also afforded to accomplished junior officers on bridge crews, who move up to Adjutant.

The 'Sub&ndash' prefix indicates that a Sub&ndashLieutenant has not yet achieved true command, but may be next in line for appointment to squadron leader or bridge crew team leader, and promotion to Lieutenant.

Dedicated and excellent performing officers may well move on to achieve the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade.
