"Was it not you who suggested the creation of oversectors and oversector governance as a means of enhancing our control?"
―Emperor Palpatine, to Wilhuff Tarkin[src]

In the Galactic Empire, an Oversector,[1] also called priority sector,[2] was an area of space that contained several planetary sectors and was headed by a Grand Moff. Those Grand Moffs were responsible for maintaining control beneath them, keeping the Moffs—or sector governors—in line.[3] One such sector was the Bright Jewel Oversector.[4]

Oversectors and the rank of Grand Moff were both created at the suggestion of Governor Wilhuff Tarkin in the fifth year of Emperor Palpatine's reign. Tarkin became the first ever Grand Moff.[3]
