|Chronological and political information|
Sergeant Derek Torent was a Human male senior watch trooper aboard the first Death Star's command center during the Galactic Civil War. In 0 BBY, he monitored external sensor data, always vigilant for Rebel activity. It is likely that he died aboard the Death Star when it exploded in the Battle of Yavin.
Behind the scenesEdit
Sergeant Torent was among the characters who got an action figure from Kenner. He was originally called Death Squad Commander, but upon being released on a The Empire Strikes Back cardback, his action figure name was changed to Star Destroyer Commander, because the original name was too reminiscent of the death squads of Nazi Germany.
