Report:
Imperial troop transport arrived promptly at 09:30 with troopers disembarking to assess fields of coverage to secure perimeters, deploy blanket protection for all imperial citizens, confront and devastate all rebel incursions.

Due to low volumes of imperial citizens a command decision was issued to delay boots on the ground for a 10:30 deployment.

The mood was one of calm with local food merchants quietly preparing for the day. The first arrest was made by our unshakeable imperial troops when a Muja Fruit trader was discovered trading in stolen credit chips.

A smaller than expected attendance did not deter our troopers who proceeded in an authoritative manner dealing with all arriving citizens, checking ID’s and instructing loyal citizens to be wary and report any suspicious rebel activity. Many were granted the opportunity to capture holograms with their stalwart imperial protectors.

A lone Jedi was swiftly brought to the heel of justice during a routine ear wax inspection with his lightsaber being quickly dismantled and rendered ineffective.

Due to reduced activity the scheduled troop transport was confirmed for early departure by 30 minutes, the protective haven was dissolved, our troopers escorted the detained prisoners onto the transport satisfied in the knowledge they had foiled another ineffective incursion by rebel scum and local riff-raff.

Injuries – Nil to report.

Armour Repairs: TX-10346 suffered minor damage to upper left thigh armour while disarming the rebel Jedi in relation to enforcing Imperial Order 87 (head lice & ear wax inspection).

Mission Status – Complete.

The mission was split over two days, with two separate KFG contingents taking control of this newly constructed location.

Welcoming locals and posing for photo’s was the order of the day and we did not disappoint.

The staff seemed just as excited as those who visited with many taking a detour to say hi once our teams had been spotted.

zero casualties, however fatigue was definitely setting in as the teams neared the end of their TROS tours.

Kidsflix Hawthorn Dec 7th

Event – Kidsflix Hawthorn
Location – Rivoli Cinema Camberwell

Date – Sat 7th Dec 2019

Troopers:

TK-27120 Gascan (Andy)
TB-33233 Thundercat (Daniel)
TS-18969 DarthStevius (Steve)

As the only burning star of this planet rose for the day, the troopers began to check the layout of their assignment.
Having worked together previously, the briefing was more of a formality, but never-the-less completed on time.
The mission was clear – ensure all visitors to the event were smiling, and encourage as many captures on image devices as possible.

Due to the early start, there were only a few non-participants in the vicinity, who were swiftly moved along as required.
All officially invited visitors – younglings and their gaurdians – were safely admitted to the film screening without drama.

We believe the film was an insight into the planet Hoth (certainly lots of talk about it being Frozen).

Troopers were able to vacate the premises having completed another successful mission.

Report
Upholding the longstanding tradition of attending midnight screenings of the recent Star Wars films, that tradition came to an end (for now) with the final chapter of the most recent Star Wars trilogy, Rise of Skywalker. Organised again by Star Walking Inc., members from the various Star Wars costume groups (501st Knightfall Garrison, Rebel Legion and Mando Mercs) mingled amongst the crowd of SW fanatics, some of whom were also wearing their own costumes, which included two Wookiees, a very young Rey, a Sith Trooper and a Twi’lek. At the start of the troop it was relatively quiet crowd-wise, but as midnight grew closer the crowd multiplied, and you could see why, given that the screening was almost fully packed. It was a very late night and quite a warm one to be wearing costumes (30°C+, though thankfully it was at least airconditioned inside the cinema complex!) but overall it was a relaxed and fun event.
(Apologies if I’ve omitted anyone from the troop list. Let me know if I’ve missed you and I’ll add you in.)

Injuries: None to report
Armour repairs: None reported
Mission status: Completed

REPORT:

“Intercepted transmissions revealed the planned demonstration of historical records of galactic history circa 35 ABY.”

IMAX Melbourne continued their tradition of Star Wars movie midnight releases with the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Many members of Knightfall Garrison joined the festivities and helped celebrate the event by providing photo opportunities for moviegoers willing to stay up late to find out how the saga ended.

The troops milled about the lobby and headed up to the First Order TIE Fighter parked outside the IMAX entrance, entertaining guests and the public in the area. We eventually ran out of time and headed back inside to de-kit and enjoy the movie with the company of friends and family. All up it was a great night out!

INJURIES: None to report.

ARMOUR REPAIRS: None reported.

REPORT:

“Intercepted transmissions revealed the planned demonstration of historical records of galactic history circa 35 ABY.”

For the final instalment of the Skywalker saga, IMAX Melbourne was hosting an early evening premiere screening before the big midnight release. Disney kindly called on the 501st Legion, Rebel Legion and Mandalorian Mercs to help celebrate the event.

Two First Order troopers and Kylo Ren were deployed to help entertain cinema patrons among the nice decorations in the IMAX lobby. A larger contingent of troopers milled about the lobby and braved the heat outdoors to accompany the giant First Order TIE Fighter parked outside the entrance. Combining our efforts with the Rebel Legion and Mando Mercs resulted in a great group of costumed characters and the crowds certainly appreciated our presence.

After about an hour of entertaining the crowds we took our leave to de-kit and watch the movie.

INJURIES: None to report.

ARMOUR REPAIRS: None reported.

Report:
Troopers met at the nearby Servo for distribution of passes, then we all rolled in to the Show in force. Both Imperials AND rebels all parked together, and with an Audience of a few Farm animals (yes, go crazy people!!!) we proceeded to start one of the WETTEST car park changes I have ever done… car mats were used as dry spots to stand on, and I actually put on as much gear as I could while Still in the drivers seat…

Once everyone was ready, we then proceeded to enter the Show.

It was Quiet…. REAL QUIET… lol

The wet weather made for a slow Start to the event, but as the day ground on, and costumes became heavier as more rain soaked into them, the public slowly began to trickle in. we found a few fun ways to entertain ourselves when the rain got too heavy, A highlite was spending time in the Portable Library bus/truck. I can now add Scanning crew to my Job skills…

As the Day wore on, the weather didn’t oblige and get any better. at around 1pm, all troopers agreed that we weren’t seeing anyone new, and most people were hiding in the limited shelter. with an hour still to go, we called it quits, and began the arduous task of getting changed out of wet costumes, and into semi dry civvies…

Injuries – Nil to report.

Armour Repairs: – I think Something may have Happened to the Directors Costume… Timoth, can provide more details??.

Mission Status – Complete.A donation was collected from the Show Organising Committee, I think it was $200 to the Isabella and Marcus Foundation… Andy V, can you confirrm this??

Report:
Village Cinemas requested an Imperial presence to maintain law and order for a 3 day period during the launch week of Star Wars: The Rise of Starwalker, the final installment in a fantasy holo trilogy set in a post-modern galaxy after the unlikely fall of our glorious Galactic Empire.
Troopers assembled at the Deployment Zone (DZ) at agreed times for operational briefings. Security was heightened and local guides required to navigate the maze that is VC Southland back office. Change facilities were excellent and provided an excellent location for pre- and post-troop high jinx – but most importantly it made a nice change from seeing spandexed individuals in carparks.
With Tatooine like weather conditions outside, troopers hoping for a cool respite were treated to relatively better conditions within the operational area. Helmet cooling system failures for TK27120 and TK27777 gave the troopers the opportunity to condition for future deployments to the Naboo swamps.
Whilst Friday night was relatively busy, trooper chatter indicates that Saturday and Sunday were less so. Amongst the high-fives and propaganda opportunities, troopers handed out chocolate, a local sweet delicacy. This proved particularly popular amongst the younger citizens – perhaps only until they tasted it, and found it bitter, not sweet.
All in all, an enjoyable troop which closed with TK27777 officially “patching” DZ51000 and DZ86236 into the Garrison.

Casualties: Nil
Equipment malfunction: TK27120’s helmet fans (Friday 20/12); TK27777’s helmet fans (Sunday 22/12);
Injuries: ID27777’s feelings – thanks TK27120
Happy People: Many – especially those little kids instructed by the kindly Imperial troops to consume the free chocolate right before bedtime.

Report:
Troopers arrived at the nominated Imperial Marshalling point, and once paperwork was sorted, we were ushered in to our “spacious” change room (much better than last years!!!) once troopers were geared up and ready for deployment, we headed out to the main entrance, to the excitement and cheers from many in the crowd. as we patrolled the line, many younglings asked for photo’s. a few of the special needs children were a little overwhelmed initially, but by the end of the day, almost all of them had come back and had a photo too…

Once the event was in full swing several patrols were conducted of the grounds. troopers thought about attempting some of the rides (the dodgem Cars was the going to be the most Likely) but we decided not too. After a short lunch break, a final sweep of the venue was conducted with a few more intimate moments shared with very Special Kids. In Particular, a Vision impaired young man got to get up close and personal with the troopers in Armour, so he he could “feel” what they looked like. Congratulations and a Special mention to the troopers who were involved with creating that special moment for the young lad. As the day progressed, we continued to patrol the venue, most people still smiled, but KFG job was done. At approx 1:30pm, Imperial Forces departed the event.

Injuries – Nil to report.

Armour Repairs: – Nil to report.

Mission Status – Complete.
