Very cool. But it should be Vader personally hunting the Jedi down.

+ 1,000,000,000,000....

I guess there's a lot of ret-conning going on so that The Phantom Menace doesn't exist (Maul's return, "Only 2 there are, a master and apprentice) and with A New Hope.  I guess I always envisioned that Vader was so angry at the Jedi Order that he took it upon himself to see their demise, not employing clones, stormtroopers, or some new dark force user named the Inquisitor.  The name sounds cool, but maybe for his first Star Destroyer (before the Executor.  That I could buy).  Just disappointed by that.

Looks a like chance for concept art Scout Walker to be made. Sounds cool...but also

The ANTI-ALIEN EMPIRE has a PAU'AN goon running around. A dark force user...BUT NOT A SITH, WE SWEAR, THERE'S ONLY TWO EXCEPT WHEN THEIR ISN'T.

I assume Vader can't be everywhere at once, big galaxy. I'd rather see someone more bureaucratic...not "obvious villain" looking.

It seems like everyone and their grandmother (or self-spawn) can have a lightsaber.

The inquisitors are an EU device that dates back quite a way.  I seem to recall them being in the mix in the Dark Empire storyline.  And I think an Inquisitor also made his way into the mix with some of the online comic strips that were featured on The Official Site.  I seem to recall that some may have been Jedi that turned to the service of the New Order.  Others may have been former padawans that were sent off to the agricultural corps.

Inquisitorius

Quote
The Inquisitorius was a secret division of Imperial Intelligence consisting of dark side Force-sensitive agents known as Inquisitors (sometimes also as Inquisitioners), or "truth officers".

Could be cool of Filoni's team takes into account some of the EU provided at the link to shape this new storyline.

Yeah, logically it's hard to see Vader NOT being the one to personally hunt down the Jedi, I mean, what else is he doing all that time? Paperwork? I like the design of The Inquisitor and all but he seems better suited as a henchman and not the lead bad guy. The double bladed light saber seems a little much too. Something less overtly Sithy would have been cooler I think.

It's fertile storytelling ground to be sure though...

Okay, I like the looks of some of the guys on the wiki link Jay provided.  One of the guys looks like he could be an Imperial Dignitary.  Speaking of the dignitaries, it would be interesting to see Sim Aloo or Sate Pestage make an appearance.  Since they were Force sensitive, it'd be cool if they were involved.

$10 says that lightsaber spins around the handle like the Darth Maul accessory and Hasbro will making a toy version.

Yeah upon closer inspection the walkers not an ATPT and looks bigger bit that's still cool.  Would love a toy of that. 

Nobody sane will take your bet Jayson haha.  :)

So clone are out...that means Hasbro's removable helmet clone stormtroopers are a lie. Or 501ster's or something.

Given the timeline that's acceptable, you have a generation of people come to age during the Empire.

Yeah the ATDP actually has been in the eu for a whole but undesignated till now.  Goes all the way back to Marvel but was in WEG sourcebooks too so I dig seeing it as another piece of concept art put to good use....  Be lying if I wasn't bummed that the AT-PT isn't shown.... Yet. :D  It would fit in this era though.

Additional images show that the Ghost is actually 2 ships in one. There is a docked starfighter in the aft called the Wolf.
