Well, I never dreamed the day I'd ever make a Star Wars MOC, but here it is. I hope you enjoy my sadistic touch ;).
About this creation
My candidate for "worst job in the universe" goes to this guy. Clearly a sequence of events takes place to fire the Death Star, but someone has to throw the last switch. I am calling that man Lt. Sinclaire. This is his story:
"Hey Roy, check it out. IM FIRIN MAH LAZER!" *flips switch* "I can't believe I get to fire the Death Star first! I feel like God. Vader ain't got nuthin' on me! WOO!"
Wait a sec. Alderaan is completely gone. Like...the planet...the life...everything.
"What have I done?"
After Lt. Sinclaire realized the implications of his actions, he pulled out his sidearm and shot three officers before being contained. After the lieutenant performed such a great service for the empire, Emperor Palpatine overlooked the incident and had Death Star human resources send the lieutenant to the mental ward on a nearby star destroyer.
Medical Droid log: Lt. Jeremy Sinclaire: mental treatment day 1: Patient is completely unresponsive to external stimuli. Screaming is constant. Had to be contained after proceeding to gnaw hand off, presumably the one activating the Death Star firing sequence. Extremely hazardous to self and others.
Treatment day 12: Condition seems to have worsened. Attempt to attack medical officer has forced us to restrict all movement and gag patient.
Treatment day 19: No improvement. Lobotomy procedure approved.
Procedural notes: procedure unremarkable. Success in removing frontal lobe.
Case file closed. Status: classified level 4. Medical droid logoff.
My round 3, group A entry for "The Mob Rules" contest.
Ok, not sure how I missed this but MAN this is cool! Great take on the universe! Think about it... what would happen if that guy that threw the switch had a crisis of concious? I've done a couple of "serious" star wars mocs in my time but this sir, tops em all! Great work! ~ Chris.
An impressive take on the category. I like how you went the mental toughness aspect of the worst job, and the effects on the person. Very smart idea, and a well executed build and commentary, nothing surprising haha. -Sam
I knew right away there was trouble when he uttered "IM FIRIN MAH LAZER!" and had his visor backwards. That ain't a laser pointer. I'm surprised, too, Vader did not pick up on Lt. Sinclaire's smack talk, hehe... Unusually cool and dark idea!
