"While the loss of a single transport world normally be considered only a minor injury, the ship stolen by Captain Reder has proven to be much more significant. Using the ship's on-board computer, Reder learned the locations of many then-Alliance safe worlds and bases. He and Admiral Drommel used this information in a short by effective campaign against the Rebel forces at those bases, resulting in thousands of deaths."
General Airen Cracken[src]

Dor Reder was a Human male Imperial Navy officer from the planet Pirralor. A junior officer aboard the Star Destroyer Pulsar during the Battle of Endor, Reder was captured by the Alliance to Restore the Republic but managed to escape by stealing an Alliance transport. Reder joined the warlord forces of Admiral Gaen Drommel, gaining command of the Star Destroyer Krieger. Information about Alliance bases and safe worlds gleaned from the stolen transport's computer was used to devastating effect when Drommel and Reder launched a campaign against them which was responsible for thousands of deaths.


Dor Reder was born in 35 BBY and hailed from the planet Pirralor. Reder joined the Imperial Navy and was a junior officer[1] holding the rank of commander,[2] who served aboard the Star Destroyer Pulsar while it was stationed in the Endor system during the construction of the second Death Star. During the Battle of Endor, the Pulsar surrendered to Alliance to Restore the Republic forces. Reder avoided capture, and led a group of Imperial crewmen,[1] including Niclara Varnillian,[2] who stole an Alliance transport and escaped. Reder joined Admiral Gaen Drommel's forces, where he was raised to the rank of Captain and given command of the Star Destroyer Krieger. Around 5 ABY, Reder and Admiral Drommel used information in the stolen transport's computers to discover the location of several Alliance safe worlds and bases. A quick and effective campaign resulted in the deaths of thousands of individuals. By 7 ABY, the New Republic Intelligence Service recorded the Krieger's last known location as the Hanod system. Charged with treason, sedition, murder of New Republic personnel, and destruction of New Republic property, The New Republic offered a reward of 45,000 credits for his capture.[1]
