A New Hope presents Vader as a formidable villain who's not afraid to get his hands dirty—infiltrating Rebel ships in the thick of the action, getting behind the yoke of a ship to shoot down the good guys, going to-to-toe with Obi-Wan Kenobi. But, well, there's one scene that just doesn't quite fit. Remember when Vader's first on-screen Forcs choke? He wins the argument in the Death Star's boardroom against a mouthy Admiral Tagge. But then he's talked down by Grabd Moff Tarkin! What is Vafer doing taking orders from a beaurocrat? Age of Rebellion: Darth Vader explores Vader's place in the Empire's hierarchy.
DARTH VADER may be the most feared man in the galaxy. But to the proud Grand Moffs of THE EMPIRE, he's just the Emperor's apprentice – below them in the hierarchy. But what fury burns in the heart of a SITH with such overwhelming rage when a mere Moff dares command him? And at what point does Darth Vader show them his true power?
