Despite their sheer size, they are still relatively small compared to the rocks around them. One flies right towards the bridge tower of a ship and POW! It explodes spectacularly. On the bridge of the ''Executor'', Darth Vader is conferring with Captain Lorth Needa and two other commanders through holograms. One of them, the captain of the ship we've just seen get obliterated, sees something wrong and [[DisconnectedByDeath tries to shield himself as his image fades]])''

Deep in his meditation chamber, he goes to one knee on a holographic projector plate, which glows to life. Before him, a massive hologram depicting the head and shoulders of Sheev Palpatine, Emperor of the First Galactic Empire, appears. We now see the man that even ''Lord Vader'' must bow to)''

->'''Palpatine:''' Search your feelings, Lord Vader. You will know it to be true. He could destroy us.
