StarWars.com 3. Thrawn and Pryce.

Until now, Governor Arihnda Pryce has been a loyal subordinate and trusted ally of Thrawn’s, but her recklessness has cost him dearly and there’s no covering up what she’s done. Her decision to blow up a fuel pod in an attempt to take out the rebels has sidelined — and possibly permanently halted — Thrawn’s TIE defender program. There’s no doubt she will be dealt with harshly once Thrawn returns to Lothal. What will she do to save herself?


Apparently she answers to him.

That's why Thrawn was able to reprimand the living f*ck out of Pryce in the last episode. Even though the 'incident' occurred on Lothal(where she is Governor), it directly impacted the Imperial/Military TIE-Defender project, which falls under Thrawn's jurisdiction.
Okay, that makes sense. thumb up

One more question- who has more power Thrawn or Grand Moff Tarkin?

^Tarkin. Although both are members of High Command, so Thrawn doesn't seem to answer to him. Palpatine in Legends liked having his top subordinates not have too much direct command over each other so they couldn't consolidate in a rebellion, seems like this has carried over to Canon.

While the rank of Governor/Grand Moff is *technically* civilian, Tarkin was allowed the uncanny ability/power to walk into almost any setting(be it civilian or Military) and usurp control of it. We saw this when he immediately asserted control over the Death Star after its initial test was successful; no questions asked(Krennic's hissyfit notwithstanding.)

We also know that Thrawn answers to Tarkin as well -- Rebels S03E20 made that abundantly clear...

Thrawn: "It's exactly this moment I have been waiting for... To wipe [the Rebels] out!"
Tarkin: "I want you to capture their leadership."
Thrawn: "In such a battle it may not be possible to take prisoners..."
Tarkin: "Ah, but a man of your talents will manage. If we are to crush this Rebellion, we must make examples of its leaders."
Thrawn: "As you wish, Governor Tarkin..."

Moreover, S04E10 told us that Tarkin was detrimental in diverting funding from Krennic's "Stardust" project, to Thrawn's TIE-Defender project. Additionally, Tarkin was able to arrange one-on-one meetings between Thrawn and Palpatine himself, in order for Thrawn to prove why his project was more valuable to the Empire than Krennic's(ie. the Death Star)... That's a lot of pull, right there.

On that note, I'm sure you can now understand why Thrawn was so infuriated when Pryce compromised his TIE-Defender project by destroying all the fuel stores on Lothal... He'd literally *just* went to bat for his project's superiority in front of the Emperor himself, and then she f*cked it all up.

Mark my words: Thrawn's downfall will be caused by the stupidity he is surrounded with, but I digress...

thanks for the detailed response. it's easy to forget how damn powerful Tarkin was! big grin

One last question for now lol- it may not have been revealed yet, but why would the Emperor fund Thrawn's project OVER the Death Star? I'd always thought the DS was his priority??

Make no mistake, Palpatine DID want the Death Star become fully realized. As he saw it, a space station of that magnitude/power was the easiest and most feasible way to crush all opposition, dissolve the Senate(and with it any remaining semblance of Democracy), and rule the galaxy through fear of the Death Star's power.

Palpatine: "There will soon be no need to spread the Imperial presence across the galaxy. Once the Death Star is fully operational, its very existence will suppress all opposition." - Thrawn


That said, it was also made clear in Rogue One AND Rebels that many high-ranking officials within the Empire(including Tarkin) viewed the Death Star as little more than a gaping money-pit that yielded no legitimate results:

Tarkin: "In my view, Director Krennic's project has been nothing but expenses and excuses for years on end..." - Rebels


That said, after years of failures with the Death Star, Palpatine was looking into other alternatives to achieve the aforementioned dominance over the galaxy -- and one of those alternatives was Thrawn's TIE-Defender project. Aside from the fact that Thrawn's project had the full support of Tarkin, Palpatine himself also favored Thrawn... Unlike Palpatine, however, Thrawn believed the Empire's presence/resources should *not* be allocated to a single vessel, regardless of how powerful it is. Thrawn believed a flexible Navy was key to greater success/dominance:

Thrawn [speaking to Palpatine]: "I would also warn against diverting too many of the Empire's resources from a flexible navy of capital ships and starfighters to massive singular projects that can bring the Imperial presence to only one system at a time." - Thrawn
