Sprettyn was an Ensign serving under Warlord Zsinj aboard Zsinj's flagship Iron Fist. He was caught at least twice playing a TIE interceptor simulator game while on bridge duty. After Sprettyn ignored an order to stop playing games on duty, Zsinj ordered General Melvar to take him away and tell the crew of Iron Fist that he had been executed. Melvar was then commanded to secretly put Sprettyn through pilot evaluation. Zsinj indicated Sprettyn was afterwards to be executed for failing to follow orders regardless of his performance.
