In the Galactic Empire, the naval chiefs were the highest ranking officers of the various branches of the Imperial Navy. At a higher level, some of them were part of the Joint Chiefs, along with chiefs of the Imperial Army. At one point, Emperor Palpatine elected to meet several of his naval chiefs—three women and one man, all admirals—on the starship Defiance, a mobile flight academy operated by Commandant Pell Baylo.
