As the hand of the new Emperor, Darth Vader had at his personal disposal a small fleet of identical black starfighters, formerly belonging to the Jedi Order he destroyed. As his reputation for ruthlessness spread across the galaxy, it was the shadowy silhouette of this starship for which the inhabitants of rebel worlds began to scan their skies, rather than the threat of a fleet of Star Destroyers. The arrival of the Imperial fleet meant only danger; the arrival of one of these dark ships meant total destruction.
