- „Darth Vader wields the power of the dark side of the Force in pursuit of the stolen Death Star plans and the quest to dominate the galaxy! Who is Darth Vader? Acting as an agent of the evil Empire at the side of the vile Darth Sidious, Lord Vader leads the extermination of the Jedi Order. He betrays his friends in the Jedi Order, then battles Obi-Wan Kenobi, his former master, in a near-fatal lightsaber duel on the lava planet of Mustafar. All hope is lost for Vader, who barely survives the fight. But Darth Sidious comes to his aid, helping him to survive in frightening armor that would become synonymous with the name Darth Vader. Vader, loyal to his Sith master, takes his seat at the right hand of Emperor Palpatine and helps to rule the Empire and dominate the galaxy. With the construction of the Death Star, the Imperial soldiers and elite stormtroopers seem unstoppable. But a small band of rebels fight back against Vader and the Empire. They manage to steal the technical read outs of the Death Star, the planet-destroying battle station roughly the size of a small moon, and get them to Princess Leia. When Vader boarded her ship, she stowed the plans in R2-D2 and sent the small droid and his counterpart C-3PO on a mission to deliver them safely to Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine and ultimately to her father on Alderaan. But before they could get there, Alderaan was destroyed by the Empire's Death Star. In a daring rescue mission, Obi-Wan, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and the two droids arrived at the Death Star aboard the Millennium Falcon. They rescued Princess Leia and escaped to get the plans safely to the Rebel Alliance base on Yavin IV, while Obi-Wan and the Dark Lord were dueling. Although the rebels ultimately succeeded in their mission to destroy the Death Star, Darth Vader survived and the war against the Empire was not yet over. On Bespin, Darth Vader conspired with Boba Fett to capture the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Chewbacca, springing a trap to lure Luke Skywalker to Cloud City. The two dueled and Darth Vader sent Luke into retreat, badly injured and reeling from secrets the Dark Lord had told him. Later, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker would meet again as Palpatine orchestrated a fight to attain even greater power for himself in an attempt to turn Luke to the dark side to take Vader's place. But Palpatine underestimated one thing: there was still good in Darth Vader. Darth Vader's story is a key element in the Skywalker saga, once a heroic Jedi Knight in the time of the Clone Wars who fell to the dark side and betrayed his friends at the Jedi Temple he rose up the ranks of the evil Empire to sit at the side of Emperor Palpatine and wield the power of the dark side with the destructive fire power of the Death Star. In the end, Darth Vader is one of Star Wars' greatest villains and a legend of the Empire and the Sith.
