    Right, and Tarkin was the most important of the regional governors - a 'Moff' was a regional military governor, and Tarkin was 'Grand Moff' with control of the Outer Rim, or close to a quarter of the whole galaxy. The point of the Death Star was that it would be so absolutely terrifying that the governors could go forward ruling through complete autocracy rather than continuing to maintain the fig leaf of a galaxy policy making body. {scrubbed}
