Recently I watched Star Wars Episode 4 and 5 and I noticed that on Darth Vader's ships (the Death Star, the Executor) and other Empire ships there are only human species as crew.

There are no aliens or other species on board, other than the brief scene with the bounty hunters.

Is there any special reason behind this?

    Because Moff Tarkin is an enormous racist. – Valorum Jan 6 '15 at 13:18
  • @Richard but its on vader's hand that who can join crew and serve his/ her service - I think – Shivam Pandya Jan 6 '15 at 13:21

    I think the dupe answers this nicely; The Empire even has a policy of "human first". – Valorum Jan 6 '15 at 13:23

    @phantom42: The Legends continuity established that there were Wookiee slaves and non-human traders - including at least one Twi'lek - on the first Death Star. The traders had set up shop in a cantina Tarkin let them operate for morale purposes, from memory. – James Sheridan Jan 6 '15 at 14:40
