A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Knightfall Garrison received orders from the Emperor to deploy a contingent of ground forces to a celebration event—May the 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day—held on Earth, in a planetary system located in the Milky Way galaxy.
Due to ongoing international measures to contain a global viral contaminant, the honour of being one of few planets and locations allowed to hold a mass celebration for May the 4th fell on Melbourne, Australia. The local Garrison and associated legions did not disappoint.
Upon landing, Knightfall forces secured an armament facility located adjacent to the deployment area and began preparations for duty. This facility was declared a neutral zone and shared with members of the Rebel Legion and Mandalorian Mercs. The facility was furnished with snacks and bottled water, as well as chairs for those who could sit.
The day-long deployment involved a variety of promotional duties for the Empire, including: reinforcement at a static effigy of Master Ren; guard duty of an Imperial TIE Fighter; securing a captured BB-8 droid; supervision of a youngling’s toy (LEGO) pen; and roving squads and ad hoc activities.
Across the course of the deployment, members of the public were given a chance to see the ‘real face’ of the Empire. Thousands of younglings and their families mixed with troopers and officer staff to capture holographs and holograms of their interactions. Displays of laughter and enjoyment were also frequently captured by Garrison holograph droids.
Ranking members of the Garrison also engaged with local propaganda outlets—spanning print, broadcast and digital news—ensuring the message of the Emperor reached the ears of those across the planet.
Despite the lure of ongoing Jedi training sessions on the main stage–a feeble effort to attract younglings to the Rebel cause–it is believed the Garrison’s conduct and professionalism was a true highlight of the day. All troopers and support staff should be highly commended, especially those who travelled from distant sectors.
For the glory of the Empire!
