|Prefsbelt Fleet Camp|
Before the Battle of Yavin, Soontir Fel worked as an instructor at the Imperial Navy Academy on Prefsbelt IV, where he trained cadets including Biggs Darklighter, Tycho Celchu, and Derek Klivian, all of whom defected to become heroes of the Rebel Alliance.
Nevertheless, Prefsbelt IV produced many notable Imperial officers such as T. Alvak. Ciutric Hegemony usurper Delak Krennel was an unarmed combat champion there, while his classmate Wynt Kepporra was an engineering student.
The academy's layout was massive. It composed of several pyramidal-like structures similar to that of the Imperial Palace on Coruscant. There was also a building that hoisted up various flags. There was also another portion of the academy that contained a central tower, at least two hangars, four barred hangars, searchlights, and a landing pad that was guarded by four turrets, with several TIEs often landing on the ground at night. At least three communication arrays and five landing pads were also in close proximity to the bulding, and the building was also guarded by eight sensor arrays.
Behind the scenesEdit
Although it is described as "the Imperial Naval Academy on Prefsbelt IV" in its first appearance in the The Star Wars Sourcebook, Prefsbelt IV was probably not intended to be the central Imperial Naval Academy referred to in the Imperial Sourcebook. The future Flight Captain Alvak did not qualify for immediate training as a TIE pilot, even though he finished within the top third of his class, which would have rendered him eligible to do so at the central Academy. Moreover, the location is listed openly, whereas that of the central Academy was said to be classified, and has never been clearly established in canon.
Rather, Prefsbelt IV is more likely to be one of the more prominent institutions among the many Sector Naval Academies.
The location around the Academy serves as a location for a Versus Mode matche in Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike.
