“Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s
ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has
not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you
clairvoyance enough to find the Rebel’s hidden base…Ahhhhh.”
Admiral Conan Antonio Motti
Motti was that Imperial officer whose courage…or lack of faith
in the Force…caused him to confront a very disturbed Darth
Vader. If it weren’t for Grand Moff Tarkin’s intervention,
Motti might not have made it to the Death Star’s moment
of triumph. Sigh. Well, maybe we ought to skip that part and try
to look on the bright side. (Exploding Death Stars notwithstanding.) Without Admiral Motti, we would never
have known about Lord Vader’s propensity to use that wickedly
cool Force choke!

Answers.com claims Admiral Motti’s first name is Romodi.
The Lucasfilm site is silent on the subject. If it’s not
Romodi, then he needs an official first name. It’s so unfair!
Even that Rebel terrorist/pilot Wedge Antilles was given a first
name in Episode IV, A New Hope. Clearly Admiral Motti
outranked Wedge and had way more dialog. Is this another sign of
bias against our beloved Imperials? We should start a petition!
UPDATE: A letter, requesting that the good Admiral be given a proper
first name was sent to the good people at Lucasfilm. Read our plea here. We await a reply with
UPDATE:Admiral Motti has not only a new first, but also a new middle name of "Conan Antonio." Check out our What's
New page for the details!

Quintus Motti has risen
swiftly through the ranks of the Imperial Navy, partly due to his Core family connections, and partly because of his willingness to
exploit a given situation. The playboy in Motti is not keen on settling down with any one woman, least of
all an arranged marriage by his parents with a girl he hasn't seen since she was a child of eight. As his impending engagement looms, Motti pursues a
mysterious young lady he meets at a party. Rated PG-13.
