Admiral piett
In the Star Wars universe, Firmus Piett (portrayed by Kenneth Colley) was a high-ranking officer of the Imperial Navy during the Galactic Civil War. He first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back as Captain of Darth Vader's flagship, the Super Star Destroyer Executor. He was promoted to Admiral following the execution of his superior officer Kendal Ozzel and from then on was responsible for overseeing ship operations and organising the activities of Death Squadron, answering only to Vader himself.

In Return Of The Jedi, Piett assumed command of the Imperial fleet defending the Death Star II, though he had been ordered by the Emperor to hold the fleet back whilst the battlestation used its own superior armaments to devastate the Rebel capital ships. The Executor and other Star Destroyers only entered the battle when the Rebel fleet attacked them directly.


Late into the battle, the Executor came under heavy fire and lost its deflector shields surrounding the bridge. It was at this time that a Rebel A-Wing came crashing into the command deck, killing Piett and his bridge staff and sending the colossal Star Destroyer crashing into the Death Star.
