The story of Darth Vader is an epic tale of love and loss, triumph and defeat, betrayal and redemption, and the iron will to destroy all. It is an inspirational tale of a man who has always lived by his own rules. In his 30 years as the head of the Imperial Death Fleet, he has proven time and again that he is a take-charge, no-nonsense leader who will not compromise and is not afraid to lead a charge into battle.

Edwards: Lord Vader, you are truly an inspiration to us all.

Vader: Thanks.

Edwards: What can we expect from the next exciting chapter of your life?

Vader: Well I'm really bogged down in this second Death Star construction right now, and that's honestly not that exciting.

Edwards: Any long-term goals?

Vader: I'd like to find my son.

Edwards: Your long-lost son, Luke Skywalker? Won't that be an interesting reunion? Any plans?

Vader: I want to turn him evil ... or kill him. Whichever works best. He's a little hard headed and kind of whiny. I'll play it by ear.

Edwards: Well you know best. After all Darth Vader, this is your life!
