- "I told him how I’d been a signals analyst in the Imperial Survey Corps, before I deserted, and how I hope my former colleagues will get amnesty after we defeat the Empire."
- ―Aleri complains to Princess Organa about her argument with Lokmarcha
The Imperial Survey Corps was an organization of the Galactic Empire. The Cerean Kidi Aleri served as a signals analyst within the corps before defecting to the Alliance to Restore the Republic. During the Galactic Civil War between the Empire and the Alliance, Aleri hoped that her former colleagues in the corps would be granted pardons after the war was over. While participating in Operation Yellow Moon alongside Rebel leader Princess Leia Organa, Aleri argued bitterly with the Dresselian commando Lokmarcha on the subject, as he believed that all Imperials, including the Survey Corps staff, should be imprisoned or executed after the fall of the Empire.
Behind the scenesEdit

The Corps was confirmed to exist in canon in 2015 by the novel Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure, written by Jason Fry and Cecil Castellucci.
