Team Brick-O-Naughts's entry in the category Alternate Star Wars for the 2012 MocAthalon
For the Alternate Star Wars category I had loads of ideas going through my head but the one that I finally settled on was this:
Palpatine: 'The time has come... Execute Order 65... WAIT!... I mean......' **TRANSMITTER FAILS**
Palpatine: 'I meant Order 66, you stupid clones!'
Clone: We are programmed to follow your initial orders, sir! Commence firing!'
Palpatine (Hologram): 'The time has come... Execute Order 65... WAIT!... I mean......' **TRANSMITTER FAILS**
Clone: Did he say Order 65 or Order 66, I didnt quite catch that?'
Jedi General (thinking quickly :P) 'Order 65 I think'

The [insert foresty Outer Rim planet name here] vignette
Vader: And that's how I became Emperor of the Galaxy. It was the best day of my life. Luke: What about when I was born? Vader: Not even close. *STATICK* That was good. I like the design of the Chancellor's Office. I liked it.
Love the chancellor's office. Here's Order 65, if anyone's interested...
Order 65: In the event of either (i) a majority in the Senate declaring the Supreme Commander (Chancellor) to be unfit to issue orders, or (ii) the Security Council declaring him to be unfit to issue orders, and an authenticated order being received by the GAR, commanders shall be authorized to detain the Supreme Commander, with lethal force if necessary, and command of the GAR shall fall to the acting Chancellor until a successor is appointed or alternative authority identified as outlined in Section 6 (iv).
