    Where do these guys belong? Military Intel? Naval Intel? ISB? So does this mean the military technically hires aliens?

    I think Garindan is just a freelance informant. There was a Gotal ISB agent in Heir to the Jedi, though.

    Darn freelancer alien spies. Taking jobs away from decent, hard working, Emperor-fearing, HUMAN agents.

    On a more serious note, I think it would be interesting to see the occasional token alien working for or with the Empire. Or even just more "Bounty hunters. We don't need their scum" drama when the Empire is forced to rely on more colorful characters. It combines spy tropes, "mob informant" tropes, "you don't have jurisdiction here" cop show tropes, and just a pinch of racism! The perfect recipe for drama.

    Even in the Legends EU, Tatooine has a Gotal administrator. The empire hires aliens, it just doesn't promote them.

    The empire probably makes use of alien spies and informants especially in areas of loose imperial control-the borders of the unknown regions, Hutt space, wild space(the more remote and insulated parts), etc...
