'STAR WARS' AT 40: "FEAR" - IN THE NAME OF THE EMPEROR
At last, the power and command of the Death Star has been achieved by the Grand Moff Tarkin, the man closest to controlling the fate of the peoples and planets of the Galactic Empire after Emperor Palpatine himself. Cruel, slyly clever and ambitious like no other in the Imperial Navy, such despicable, heartless villainy is rare and clearly been finely nurtured and cultivated by his leader.
As the last remnants of the Old Republic are being swept away by the Emperor's "new order", alongside the true solidification of his power base via the emergent Death Star, the time and destiny of Tarkin's evil awaits, especially the first true test of the immeasurable power of the battle station against a planetary target whose destruction will send shockwaves of fear and terror into the hearts and minds of any existing or potential Rebel sympathisers.
