Tarkin Doctrine (Legends) – Star Wars Minute

, , Leave a comment

The Tarkin Doctrine was the philosophy of
Grand Moff Tarkin, and became central to Imperial policy. Tarkin suggested the concept of ruling
through fear of force, rather than force itself, with a weapon such as the Death Star. His
philosophies promoted him to become the first Grand Moff in the Empire. The Death Star was
the ultimate tool in the Tarkin Doctrine, symbolizing the power to wipe out an entire
planet of Rebels. These symbols of fear could be found everywhere in the Empire, from the
faceless stormtroopers to star destroyers, and the super star destroyers. The Empire was unsuccessful keeping the systems
in line through fear. Even the Death Star had the opposite effect, causing systems to
rally to
the Rebellion’s cause.
