The Pilot Elders were a group in Pilot society. They were responsible for determining whether a member of their species was worthy to pilot a Leviathan. Their assessment of Moya's Pilot was that he was not yet being worthy of such a task. The use of the term "not yet" suggests that, after their initial assessment, they would be willing to reassess Pilots at a later date and reconsider whether they were ready.
- It is unclear if the Elders would ever provide Pilots to the Peacekeepers given they enslave Leviathans and Pilots with them.
