Here, it says there is a rank known as Supreme Moff during the Rebellion era, mentioned in the Galaxy Guide 1: A New Hope. Are any examples of a specific Supreme Moff mentioned in any canon sources? 220.127.116.11 21:34, August 30, 2013 (UTC)
I hereby provide you with the exact text from the Galaxy Guide 1: "Had [Tarkin] lived to see his Death Star battle station fully implemented, it is very likely that a position akin to "Supreme Moff" would have been accorded to him by the Emperor. The position, of course, would have been very much a symbolic one, as the Emperor always maintains the last word, but Vader would be wholly unsuitable for a desk job and the iron will of the Emperor could have been exactingly implemented by a man like Grand Moff Tarkin." In other words, not only no one ever became Supreme Moff, but the position itself and even its name are also purely theoretical. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:51, August 30, 2013 (UTC)
So that means it exists in theory but no Supreme Moff has been appointed? 18.104.22.168 00:40, August 31, 2013 (UTC)
I wouldn't even say it exists in theory. It had the potential to exist had Tarkin lived on, but he didn't, so it never even became an empty slot on an organizational chart. jSarek (talk) 01:27, August 31, 2013 (UTC)
If Tarkin was a regional govenor at the rank of Grand Moff, if he became a Supreme Moff, he'd be second only to the Emporer, but I think Palpatine would'nt allow someone like Tarkin to pass Vader in rank, as we all know, Vader was the Emporer's Right Arm, and, probably, second only to the Emporer.
But that dosen't say the rank of Supreme Moff was never used, what about all those crazy, power-bent warlords that appeared in Star Wars: Darksaber, I mean, if they had ranks like: 'High Moff', 'Supreme Warlord', and 'Omnipotent Battle Leader', they probably incorporated the rank of 'Supreme Moff' somewhere, but it was probably adultirated in authority, (knowing them).--MadMarek (talk) 09:22, September 25, 2013 (UTC)
The warlords could call themselves whatever they wanted. Probably one did call himself a supreme moff. But no, in the empire under Palpatine, there was no supreme moff. CloneMarshalCommanderCody (talk) 21:19, June 12, 2014 (UTC)
