Blasted Contractors!


Work is a disaster. The blind leading the blind leading the Force-choked.

Cracking the whip. Setting a new tone of efficacy around the Death Star.

Due to the haste with which we are proceding through the latter phases of this battle-station's construction we have been forced to employ scores of civilian contractors from across the galaxy in addition to our own Imperial Corps of Engineers. This had led to a certain clash of working cultures.

For instance, this morning I critiqued a tragically sub-par piece of workmanship on a tractor-beam repulsolift inversion assembly by snapping the neck of the site supervisor and throwing his limp corpse down a disused elevator shaft.

Imperial engineers would have snapped to crisp attention, of course, but all these civilian contractors did was give me was grief. "Oy, you do that again and I'll have the union on you!" barked one red-faced buffoon.

"It is vital that you enhance the inter-departmental syngergies of your operation," I said. And then I killed him.

On a more positive note the world-smashing superlaser seems to be working admirably, much to the relief of the stress-incontinent Moff Jerjerrod (and the relief of his cleaning service). The lower ranks now giggle when he enters the room, whispering about yesterday's chat in the landing hangar in which Jerjerrod greeted the news of Emperor Palpatine's imminent inspection by losing control of his bowels. Though no one let on at the time, you knew they had to be smelling it. It was certain they not be able to hold off on the jokes for long, since Fett's penchant for toilet humour is famous and every cloned trooper is a reflection of that spirit.

After destroying one of Endor's lesser moons I treated the men to a round of Corellian wine. Admiral Piett signalled from Executor that the moon has been completely incinerated, reducing the likelihood of damage from the kind of outflying debris we saw when we toasted Alderaan. The safety control officer was tickled pink.

Tomorrow I have elected to take a tour of the facilities on the forest moon below. My office is packing a picnic.

Lord Vader, (Darth)

It has come to the attention of this office that the Death Star Mark II has recently conducted a test of it's superlaser on one of the moons of the Endor Gas Giant.

While our office is proud of the technological achievements of the Empire, we would sternly caution you to consider the repercussions of destroying planetary bodies on a whim.

Destruction of planetary bodies, even one as insignificant as a lesser Endorian moon can have serious ecological repercussions throughout the galaxy. Changes to the local gravitational field may well impair astrogation in the sector and may also affect the stable orbits of the remaining objects in orbit around the gas giant.

While we understand that the moon you destroyed was uninhabitable, we ask that you consider the affects it may have on the Sanctuary Moon, both ecologically and to the primitive primate culture that exists there. You may well have destroyed a stellar object of cultural or religious significance to the local primate culture - possibly forcing them to re-evaluate their spiritual culture and choose alternative gods.

On a positive note I will say that we are very pleased that the Death Star Mark II was able to completely incinerate the moon, and will not lead to another disaster like the Alderranian Asteroid belt. (Between you and I Darth, they can call it an asteroid belt all day, but it's still just a debris field.)

I thank you for you time and for your consideration of Galactic Ecology when conducting further tests.

Respectfully yours,

Galen Utapi

RE: Animal request

Lord Vader,

We regret to inform you that portions of your request for animal procurements have been denied. Currently the following creatures that you ordered are on the Imperial Endangered Species list:

Acklay
Kelanian Shark
Dia Nogu
Gundark
Rancor
Wampa

Due to a recent population explosion on their native planet, I am able to provide you a plentiful supply of womp-rats (~2 meters). Reeks remain plentiful so those will be shipped as soon as possible. I am puzzled at your continuing request for Alderaanian Fruit Bats, as I have repeatedly told you they are extinct. Please do not request them again.

We here at the Coruscant Preserve are honored you have chosen us to supply the new animal park on your space station. We trust they will all be treated humanely and not used to trap unwary stowaways or as methods of execution, as was widely rumored several years ago.

Yours,
Arn Tulpepa

Lord Vader,

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the citizens of the Galactic Empire regarding your continued use of your religous beliefs while conducting state business.

We are awaiting a hearing date from the Imperial High Court. In the meantime we must demand that you cease and desist all practices of the Sith/Jedi religon while on duty for the Galactic Empire.

Furthermore, don't try to scare us with your sorcerer's ways Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religon will not stop the GCLU legal department. We are everywhere and see everything!

Thank You,

Lord Vader, (Darth)

It has come to my attention that you have executed certain members of our union. We have reserved all rights to execute said individuals.

As you neither asked for nor received permission to execute any union members, We believe you have willfully infringed our rights under 17 I.C. Section 104 et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as 150,000 credits as set forth in Section 54(c)(8) therein.

We demand that you immediately cease the execution and destruction of all workers and that you desist from this or any other infringement of our rights in the future. If we have not received an affirmative response from you by next week indicating that you have fully complied with these requirements, we shall take further action against you.

Very truly yours,

Respectable Lord Vader,

Thank you for the good luck wishes on behalf of my hopelessly barbarian profession.

Nothing would be more wonderful than being able to support thy work with the knowledge and expertise (and easily rechargeable, no-sleep-needing energy) of the likes of a 2-1B Medical Droid, a 4-KT or an MD-OC6.

Yet here we are... hoping to one day accomplish a fraction of what your galaxy considers old day technology which, I presume, you, more than anyone, find it to be essential to your daily life.

On this regards, may I ask, respectable Lord Vader... how do you interpret and intertwine your dependence upon mere technology with the freedom of spirit provided by the sheer power of the Force?

For ever thankful, your dedicated reader,

Dr. C. Romay

My most esteemed Lord Vader:

I have a few questions that I would most appreciate if you could answer.

1. Why, if you had been serving the emperor for more than 20 years, was Grand Moff Tarkin "holding your leash"? I mean, you had killed the Jedi for the Emperor and yet you still had to obey that other guy. He stopped you from crushing a trachea, for goodness' sake!

2. Why did it take more than 20 years to build the first death star? Count dooku gave the emperor the plans that long ago.

3. Why are your architect/engineers so enamored of huge, vertigo-inducing pits even in the most inapropriate places? Doesn't anybody in your galaxy suffer from acrophobia?

3. Speaking of architect/engineers. Has anybody on your design engineering crew heard of fail safe systems? I mean, a power reactor that goes on a chain reaction when shot at? Here on earth if we saw a bunch of terrorists coming at our power plants we would shut them down immediately and go on emergency power batteries or fossil powered diesel generators until the danger passed.

4. What kind of control system do your star destoyers use? Somebody soots at the bridge and the entire thing spins out of control. Our large ships can have their command bridges decomissioned and vessels can continue to be guided from secondary control centers. Frankly, those termite like creatures that design your large weapons systems are idiots.

5. How did you maintain your composure when meeting Obi-Wan again? Hadn't he cut off your legs and kicked you into molten lava after stealing your son? I would have been in such a rage; you were actually very non-chalant about the whole thing. I've seen you be more upset at somebody who fails on a minor task.

Any answers?

Lord Vader,

Just a few things.

1) What are you bringing on your picnic?

II) How are you going to eat in front of your troops? Through a straw?

C) If you've hired the ITU (InterGalactic Teamsters Union), be careful. I hear they also have a strong influence on the weak minded.

I hear they also financially back some nice casinos around the galaxy. This could be a nice source of new Empire revenue. Slave trade, stealing, oppression, and trachea smashing probably has a cap on the amount of credits it brings in.

Just something to ponder during your next meditation.

Dear Johan,

My most esteemed Lord Vader:

1. Tarkin never "held my leash." That expression was merely the known terrorist Leia Organa's way of attempting to bait me.

2. Truth be told, the current Death Star is actually the fourth in the line. We call it "Death Star 2" for better press. The first prototype was plagued with technical problems, and many of the internal chambers had been built to the specifications of insectile occupants. The second Death Star crashed into a planet, and the navigational officer was subsequently found to have been on the hooch.

3. That isn't really my department. They tell me these things are necessary.

4. Joy-sticks. With two fire buttons.

5. His weakness radiated off of him like a stink. Who wouldn't feel confident?

Sincerely,

D. Vader

The assumption that you or that wheezing skeleton you call an Emperor could make anyone loose bowl control is utterly laughable. You are about as menacing as a Gungan. You need therapy. I'm glad that you are still around to amuse me my young Padawan.

So you got your left leg fixed. Pity. I guess I'll just have to try something else. Perhaps I'll have to manipulate the servo circuits in your crotch to give those charred testicles of yours a constant but needling electric shock. That would bring a smile to my face.

Meanwhile, I'm off to spend some quality time with your son. I'm sure he can use it.

Lord Vader,

Thank-you for your continued support of the Imperial Corps of Engineers, we strive to meet all the construction needs for Imperial forces throughout the galaxy. Unfortunately you have been a first hand witness to inferior work by union contractors. We applaud your motivational techniques in this matter. While we at the ICE prefer to use slave labor to speed up construction of most projects, the location of the Death Star Mark II is in such a remote section of the galaxy that “importing” forced labor would create unwanted attention. You know fully well of the problems the Empire has had in the past with rebel spies. Although the union contractors are much more reliable in sense of keeping their mouth’s shut. They do not produce the overall quality that we at ICE are accustomed to. Their only concern is that of their over-time pay and the 12 mandatory breaks during the day. This lack of motivation with the contractors has created an atmosphere of animosity between our Corps and that of the outside contractors. Hopefully your trachea crushing example of the contractors will sufficiently motivate them to do a higher caliber of work. Thanks again for intervening on the behalf the Imperial Corps of Engineers.

Sincerely,
Sub-Commander Vagan

P.S. – The Corellian wine was a big hit.

Hey Sub-Comander Vagan, tell your engineers that it's about bloody time you did away with the endless chasms in everything you build.

As Lord Vader perceptively noted, the original design of the death star was done to accomodate insectoid beings. I'm sure those things use the pits and tunnels to fly back and forth instead of taking the elevator. Well, humanoids don't have wings and those openings are just plain dangerous. Apparently all ICE does is blindly copy what some termites came up with.

Blogger Peter d'Iago said...

Lord Vader,

I note with interest your description contains the phrase "Immaculately conceived" when - in fact - you are nothing of the sort.

The concept of "Immaculate conception" is - in the main - connected with a Marian Doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church which refers to being born without and shielded from Sin.

I feel that - despite the fact you and the rest of the Sith cut dashing figures in robes and the Emperor's Guard are clearly very Cardinal-inspired - crushing someone's trachea with your mind is hardly Sinless.

Although I do believe it is pretty cool.

Anyway, the term you are looking for is virgin birth.

Although that might mean you would have to die in order to save the world from someone else's Sins - I need to look into the theology of this.

Dear Lord Vader,

In light of the successful activation of the new Death Star's weapon, I once again stand in awe of Imperial technological superiority.

The fact that you have built such a powerful laser makes it clear that you are far beyond the people of Earth in the practical applications of quantum mechanics. And since you specifically are known for your skill with technology, I've decided to address this question to you.

Can you recommend a good textbook on the fundamentals of laser weapon engineering? I assume the Imperial Academy must have access to a large selection.

Thank you.

Hi Darth,

I realize that you're out in the remote backwater for this construction, but aren't you worried that somebody might notice the obliteration of a moon? You would have to get pretty close to see the Death Star directly, but any yahoo with a star chart could be a couple systems away and notice a missing moon.

Or suppose -- just for the sake of argument, mind you -- that the reason for the early activation of the weapons systems is that the Death Star is meant to be operational without appearing operational. It would make a great trap! But now you've left an advertisement saying "look, our big gun works great!"

Frankly, I would have rented one of those big luxury ships and "awarded" a free cruise to your most incompetent contractors. I hear the Rebels use converted Mon Calamari luxury cruisers as their capital ships; it would have been a test with interesting ramifications...

Perhaps you have heard of our product Mr. Tuberhead? We at PlayCo.

Young Lord Vader;

RE: Your contractor troubles.

You get what you paid for; and low bidder isn't always the best bidder... Slave and cheap labor often yield sub-par results.

Snapping the neck(s) of workmen or their supervisors isn't the best forms of punishment, or encouragement, too quick and lacking in spectacle to make much more than a passing impression. There are far more educational, terror-enabling and motivating methods; “The Booth” from a mirror time is one, where a man must endure a thousand slow deaths a minute for endless hours.

Be cryptic, be understood.

Name: Darth Vader
Address: Death Star (NOTE: Approach with caution)

Dear Darth Vader:

My mum wanted me to write to you to apologise for prank calling you. So, I'm sorry I called you during a manical meeting and made you ask 'Is there a I. C. Weiner here?'
I'm sorry and my mum's real angry at me. She said I'm not allowed to anger the dark lord no'more.
Sorry.

Yours Truly
Athena

P.S. cool blog, once again.

Well we all knwo what vader can do for us.... but why is it that the count still lives. Vader is a covard and I only serve the darkside but you.. you are only a veil of a childish boy. THE GENERAL WILL ONE DAY HVE YOUR HEAD, although then again I am his sparring partner.

Oh and another thing your master is a much better fighter padawan.:)

To: Jardu the Hutt, office of hte Intergalactic Workers Union
From: Imperial Legal Affairs Division, on behalf of Lord Darth Vader
RE: Response to cease and desist of union member unauthorized execution claim

Your Excellency,

Recently your office sent a communique to the Lord Darth Vader in which you claimed that under 17 I.C. Section 104 et seq., the Dark Lord of the Sith willfully infringed on your rights to discipline and/or execute union members. Your claim indicated that no permission was either asked nor granted.

I would like to refer you to the contracts signed by your representatives in regard to the work being done in question over which Lord Vader is currently commanding. Please note that on page 364, section Isk, subsection Aleph, paragraph 4, it clearly indicates that subpar or unsatisfactory construction on any part, section, subsection, et al. of the project for which you have been employed allows for supervisory discipline to be conducted by onsite personnel of the Imperial Command Structure. Specifically, "...transfer of execution authority from the IWU to the Imperial Comand Structure is permitted; with such permission is required the responsibility to carry out such discipline in lieu of the IWU Hutt Overlords."

Please also note that costs associated with clean up, removal, transport, and/or burial of such detrius shall specifically be deducted from future invoices and payments for subject contract, and that any work required to be done as a result of inoperability of sections overloaded with such detrius are also to be deducted from payments rendered on said project. Attached you will find the Imperial Engineering reports regarding such costs and operability, and we expect that these matters will decrease your next invoice accordingly.

Thus, not only was Lord Vader within his rights to execute the IWU incompetent personnel, but it was his responsibility to do so. While Moff Jerrjerod seems to have been unwilling or unable to commit himself to such disciplinary acts, Lord Vader is not so timid. Please direct all further correspondence regarding such matters to our office for proper handling.

Sincerely,
Cmdr. Talus Mehj'ral, Esq.
Imperial Legal Affairs

Dear Darth,

And I do mean dear. Since our last rondezvous to the stellar moon outer limits, ive since wondered why you haven't called. Look, it's time to come out of the closet and stop fighting your desires for me. I know why you act so foolishly, all that anger locked up within. This can all come to a halt if you just step up to the ecxtacy express. Anyway, yes I do accept your undercover proposal. I can't wait till the next time you work your vinyl coverd hands all over my body. Till next time sweety. Muah!
