    Wut, they couldn't have a Female Officer closer in age to Tarkin?

    I understand Officers who stand out due to exceptional performance, thus rising through the ranks faster. But even with the few wins we see, it feels overshadowed by the losses/setbacks.

    I hope Luceno writes a "Tarkin" sequel novel (post-Rebels/Rogue One) to clear this up. In "Tarkin," he and Vader went on a joint mission, and the question of who was in charge was left up to them by the Emperor. That question was never satisfactorily answered as they ended up contributing their individual strengths to complete the mission. Vader is bossy and strong, but Tarkin is shrewd. Luceno posits that the Emperor, Vader and Tarkin are a kind of "triumvirate" in leading the Empire. Interesting stuff ... but it could use some fleshing out.

    That's odd IMO. While I realize Palpatine is ultimately a Sith, and likely runs the Empire based on their rules. But to leave the decision of who's in charge up to them? Vader would clearly win for obvious reasons. So it's ultimately up to their ability to work with each other as a Team, not "who's" in charge.

    "Officially" Tarkin holds rank within the Empire, Vader is a Taskmaster or enforcer, a Hand of the Emperor. In a Military setting Tarkin would and should be the guy. When it comes to enforcing the Emperor's will, or to dispatch Jedi. That is hen Vader is called in. It's not like Palpatine and Anakin were ever Friends, he was a puppet that got played just like everyone else.
