Sate Molock was an unused character from early drafts of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back who later became Sate Pestage. Molock was to be in scene 286 as a "shimmering holographic image" who warns Darth Vader of the Emperor's foul mood. According to the film's shooting schedule, this scene was shot on June 18, 1979, but never made it into the movie's final cut. Kenner toys even produced a Star Destroyer playset featuring a toy hologram apparently intended to be Molock. An enclosed instruction sheet reads, "Darth talks to the Grand Vizier with the pretend viewing screen."

The last name of Molock was later reused for the character Trech Molock.
