  8. We had our orders. 
We were to link up with the second platoon and secure a YT type freighter air reconnaissance had recently discovered. 
Rumors were circulating that Ren himself was going to be on site. I'd only seen the man from a distance, that had been enough for me. He had a reputation of being a hot-head, a loose cannon. The pauldron on my shoulder would surely make me a target if he felt the need to make an example of somebody today. 
Orders are orders - always forward, never back . . . just like Phasma had drilled into our heads.

  12. As difficult as it was for him to become a Jedi, it was even harder for him to forget how. 
Obi-wan roamed the wastes of Tatooine, confident in his mission, but very alone. He spoke only to his dead Master in the hope of receiving guidance. 
None was ever given. He was truly and completely alone.

  15. Happiest of birthdays to my friend Dennis Taylor, aka @krash_override 
One of the "Original Six" to follow me. 
You took the time to teach me how to make toys fly and I'll never forget that. 
Your custom figures have helped me bring the stories in my imagination to life here on IG. 
With out a doubt, one of the finest individuals I have yet to meet in person. 
But that will happen eventually. 
Hope you had an amazing day Dennis.

  16. The snow began to accumulate as he made way to his post for the night. 
Another long shift in the dark was bad enough. Knowing he'd probably be relieved late only added to the frustration he was already feeling. 
None of the recruiters ever said anything about this part of the job. It was always, "FOR THE EMPIRE!". For the Empire indeed

Wretched hive? Scum and villainy? 
Who wrote this? Are we doing Shakespeare or Star Wars? 
I'm not saying this! Where's Lucas? GET ME LUCAS! I'M ALEX GUINNESS and I REFUSE to recite this TRIPE!"

  21. LITTLE KNOWN STAR WARS FACT

Not only was Director Krennic a FanBoy of Darth Vader, The Emperor and all things evil, he loved Batman.

In fact, you can see the obvious influence the "Caped Crusaders" Batwing had on the design of Krennics personal shuttle craft. 
Often times, much to the dismay of his escort of cold-blooded DeathTroopers, before boarding the craft he would raise a fist in the air and shout - "TO THE KRENNIC-WING!"

Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through.
