An emperor (and kings for that matter) are political jugglers that play one faction off another. There are lots of underlings to get things done but he probably holds his position because he maintaines support of sufficient factions or was neutral enough (and thus has not much real influence)  to the most powerful which wouldn't allow someone from the other factions to be emperor.

Historically 'great' emperors did significant things to get to their throne (and/or while on their throne), while others inherited the position and may do very little.


Being a 'space' emperor may not matter much to differentiate from any other kind

Emperors of course denote some kind of 'empire' which is generally 'large' as entities go (means there can be BIG factions also as well as big territories to be controlled and possibly large numbers of people out there who might not like being ruled or the way they are ruled)

It also often means that there are 'kings' below (vassals of) the Emperor which owe some kind of fealty and recognition to the 'emperor' (there also can be locations which no longer have their own political entity in charge and are run by governers who owe allegiance to the emperor (or his empire).
