It's even noted in one of the novels that the fastest way to promotion in the Empire was to get yourself assigned to Vader's flagship, the Executor. One could say that the commander of the vessel is an example of Exactly What It Says On The Tin... A really BIG tin...

Is this a reference to the Executor's name? Because an executor only executes orders, an executioner executes people. Vader is both an executor (the guy who directly represents Palpatine and ensures his wishes are carried out), and an executioner (the guy who chokes people to death if they fuck up).

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.
