Somewhere within the Star Wars universe there are "zombies" that originated from Project Blackwing. In Revenge of the Sith it shows Emperor Palpatine and Vader speaking on the subject of keeping loved ones from dying. My question is whether Darth Vader planned on using Project Blackwing, and if so, did he end up using it?


Darth Vader commissioned Project Blackwing in order to use it as a weapon. The incidents on the Star Destroyer Vector and the prison barge Purge put an end to the project.

For a detailed description and history of the origins of this project, there is an excellent article on Wookiepedia : http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_bioweapons_Project_I71A
