“This station is now
the ultimate power in the universe…I suggest we use it!”
Admiral Conan Antonio Motti.
arrogant and ruthless Imperial officer, Admiral
Motti was unafraid to challenge the Sith Lord Darth Vader’s “sad
devotion to that old religion,” believing the Death
Star rather than the Force was the only power needed to quell
the burgeoning Rebellion.
being given a brief, but highly effective attitude adjustment
by Lord Vader, Motti continued to exercise his ambitions, overseeing
the destruction of the Rebel stronghold of Alderaan.
death aboard the exploding Death Star battle station has indelibly
etched his memory into the minds of galactic citizens…as
a warning NOT to make his mistake of underestimating the power
of the Force.
