|Chronological and political information|
Rendrake attended the Imperial Academy, where he was two classes behind his fellow Imperial Han Solo, who he became good friends with. However after his first assignment, Rendrake became disenchanted with the Empire and after the Battle of Yavin, he contacted Solo, who had became a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Rendrake hoped to defect to the Alliance, but Solo instead asked his old friend to serve the Alliance from within the Imperial Navy. After some consideration, Rendrake agreed.
Rendrake gained the rank of Lieutenant and served as a communications officer aboard the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Vendetta. He used his access to Imperial communications to supply Alliance operatives with whatever information he discovered. He also operated a black market of the Vendetta, supplying other officers and enlisted troops with items that were hard to come by.
