so lets breach this topic after Episode 6 of the Mandalorian. Matt Lanter played the character of the only human Officer aboard a droid run prison ship. when the door opens to the control room, the visible blue jacket and classic white helmet (with Aurbesh characters) provided a shocking contrast to the rest of the colors in the episode. As a one off character we probably will not see this again, however there are plenty of one off characters within the Command structure.

As a Ships pilot, this is either an officer or senior NCO, and the badge should tell that tale, but Im not current on New Republic badges.

I need to go back and rewatch the episode, but the jacket construction reminded me of the Resistance trooper jacket construction with the seams running down the front. Clearly there were TK shoes and belt parts so he came out of the post Imperial ranks.

Thoughts? Discussion? Input? RAID costume vs Commanders costume?

Matt Lanter's character is called a New Republic Soldier in the post-episode credits. I think the badge on his chest is something like a police officer badge or correction officer badge and not a rank badge. RAID already started collecting info on this character because of that.

If Lucas Film wanted this guy to be an officer they probably would have written his rank and name in the credits instead of New Republic Soldier. The character tells the Mandaloien his name so they could have used it.

That's a fair assessment. I looked at RAID first but did not see it but now going back I see the topic started there in Standards Development. Looks like RAID is taking point on this so Ill post over there.
