TK421 Imperial Ezine - Issue 2

Updated on March 3, 2009


Is TK421 the monthly ezine that comes out fortnightly or the fortnightly ezine that proclaims itself to be monthly?

Whichever we are we're back two weeks after our debut edition.

Why? We've found enough time in our tight schedules to toss together enough material to constitute a full issue. The definition of a 'full issue' is still up in the air but we're thinking about 10 pages.

So here it is. Read. Enjoy. And if you don't there's an un-subscription address listed at the end of this email.



Lucasfilm Ltd has been coming down hard on fans with Star Wars appreciation websites. In fact they're coming down on hard on anyone with a domain name that comes from any of the movies. Some of these sites aren't owned by fans or mention anything about Star Wars. An example being www.tatooine.comm which was recently 'acquired' by Lucasfilm.

So in the interests of doing the right thing by George and his lackeys we're reprinting this subtle piece of humor. Which shouldn't violate any of Mr Lucas's registered trademarks.


"Commence primary ignition...infringe when ready..."

"I've got a bad copyright infringement about this."

"You must infringe as you feel is right, of course."

"Copyright infringement is here. Now. On this moon."

"Luke, Make sure you're uncle gets a droid that speaks copyright infringement!"

"Will someone get this walking copyright infringement out of my way?"

"Copyright infringement ain't like dustin' crops, boy."

"Infringe, Luke, infringe!"

"If you only knew the power of the dark side of the copyright infringement!"

"And I thought copyright infringement smelled bad on the outside."

"Most impressive, but you are not a copyright infringer yet."

"In my opinion, there's no such thing as copyright infringement."

"Copyright infringement doesn't concern me, Admiral."

"Your copyright and sorcery ways don't scare me, Lord Vader."

"Slimy? Mud hole? My copyright infringement this is!!"

"This copyright infringement is never going to make through that blockade!"

"Your copyright infringement powers won't work on me, boy!"

"They've shut down the main reactor! We'll be infringed for sure!"

"Judge me by my size do you? And well you should not. For copyright infringement is my ally."

"They're moving into infringement formation...Shields up!"

"Into the garbage chute, copyright infringer."

"Yub, yub, echok 'fringement..."

"No copyrights! No copyrights!" (Flips coin) "Sorry about the mess."


"I find your lack of infringement disturbing"

"Shut down all the websites on the infringement level! Do you copy? Shut down all the websites on the infringement level."

"You're the copyright infringer. You tell me."

"I was known as the Emperor's Copyright Attorney. I traveled throughout the galaxy in his name, spying on and assassinating writers of fan fiction."

"This is copyright infringement, and in copyright infringement, you can do just about anything the other side can't stop you from doing."

"The exhaust port is ray shielded, so you'll have to use copyright infringement."

"Now he is the Emperor's Copyright Attorney, twisted and evil"

".... he betrayed and murdered the web sites."

"I'm Luke Skywalker and I'm here to infringe copy."

"I am fluent in more than 6 million forms of copyright."

"To be a copyright attorney takes the most serious mind, the deepest commitment."

"Adventure, excitement, a copyright attorney craves not these things."

"His High Exaltedness, the Copyright Attorney, hopes that you will die honorably."

"C3PO, you tell that slimy piece of copyright ridden filth that he'll get no such pleasure from us! Right?"

"Copyright Attorney, this is your last chance. Free us or die..."

Many copyright infringers died to bring us this information.

How about this one?: But you don't know the power of the copyright infringer.

Or ala the evil emperor: So be it, copyright infringer! (sorry...but then we get hit with the blue lightning...)

"I dunno, Infringe Casual."

"I dunno, fly infringement."

.. and ...

"May the Copyright Infringement be with you...always."

Author Unknown. And we apologize for infringing on their copyright

3. Two words: flying surfboards!

4. Amidala and Anakin's offspring aren't separated at birth and hidden from the Emperor as we've been led to believe. They get taken by a dingo.

Are you a Trek Fan? Then 'move along, move along'.


10: Two words: John Williams.

9: The guns used in Star Wars are real English Sterling machine guns and German Mausers... not dustbusters!

8: Ten Forward doesn't have a cool Bith band! (Heck--they couldn't even get Max Rebo to play there!)

7: Grand Admiral Thrawn could have defeated the Borg at Wolf 359!

6: Star Trek's bald captain--covered in cybernetics--was only the spokesmind for the Borg. Lando's bald right-hand man, with just a cool walkman on his head, had the entirety of Cloud City at his every command.

5: "Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith" sounds cooler than "Captain Jean-Luc Picard."

4: Imperial and rebel uniforms actually have POCKETS!

3: The Federation has ships named Voyager, Reliant, and Enterprise...the Empire has ships named Devastator, Avenger, and


2: Star Trek robots can not use contractions and have trouble with emotions. Star Wars robots can speak over 6 million forms of communication fluently and whistle to themselves just because they're in the mood too.

1. Captain Picard only cried like a baby in a vineyard after becoming evil and then returning to the forces of Good. Anakin Skywalker kicked the Supreme Ruler of the Galaxy's ass!

Even More Humor


Position Available Immediately: Apprentice Sith Lord, Dark Side Consulting Group.

An unexpected position has opened up in the Dark Side Consulting Group for an Apprentice Sith Lord. The ideal candidate for this position would like galactic travel and possess a complete understanding of, and competence with the Force, or demonstrate a willingness to learn.

Duties include: Performing competitive intelligence, hands-on intervention in support of the Sith Master's planning initiatives, ability to travel the galaxy widely, and operating a variety of laser-powered hand weapons and high-powered space/air vehicles. Some slaying of enemies of the Dark Side is also required, which may be performed using the Force or hand weapons.

Qualified applicants would possess good communications skills (especially when speaking in menacing whispers), and would be action-oriented individuals and risk takers. A background in study of the Force (light side or dark) is desirable, as would typically be acquired by those with advanced degrees or significant course work in Jedi Arts from the University of Coruscant.

Applicants should also be familiar with holographic projection equipment, possess a valid galactic pilot's license (for all classes of ships), and must show a willingness to give in to their hate. A proven track record of using fear and/or Jedi mind tricks to control others is also desirable, as is the ability to speak several galactic languages. Ideal candidates for this position would also have no children or other living relatives who are strong in the ways of the Force. (A new hire would be given several weeks to meet this requirement.)

Compensation for this position is commensurate with experience, and is extremely competitive for this field. Benefits include a generous severance package, a company starship, and a dark-colored clothing allowance. The Apprentice Sith Lord reports to and works closely with the Sith Master, and experience in such small, team-based organizations is vital to the success of the master's plans. Discretion is also highly valued, as is the ability to see the future before it happens. Applications will be accepted until the end of July. Transmit them to

Episode II Script


By George Lucas


DARTH SIDIOUS sits at the head of a large rectangular table in the center of a massive cloning complex. Seated at the table with him is GRAND MOFF TARKIN and several older human male SCIENTISTS. In the back ground are several TECHNICIANS and DROIDS stationed at various computer consoles.


Soon this Complex will be fully operational. When we begin mass producing our Clone warriors, no army in the Galaxy will dare challenge us!


Good. Now what is the current status of project: Re-Birth.


We were very successfully with the sample we were able to retrieve from Naboo. The Clone is now ready to be field tested.


Excellent! Summon him before me at once.

TARKIN presses a button on the arm of his chair, activating a com-system.


Lord Sidious wishes to inspect the Clone. Send him in.


Yes Sir!

A few moments latter a figure enters through the main entrance way, casting a long shadow across the Clone Complex's main floor. The shadow is dressed in a robe and has small points sticking out from it's head. Darth Sidious looks at the figure stone-faced, a few of the SCIENTISTS gasp.


He is an exacted double of the eighth his size.



A Two Foot Tall DARTH MAUL!

DARTH SIDIOUS twists his hand around, extends his pinkie finger, and places it at the corner off his mouth.


I shall call him....Mini Maul.

Before you decide to join the Empire you should consider these points raised in the SW trilogy.

Reasons Not To Join The Imperials

|-o-| Our best troops were defeated by rock and stick wielding teddy bears.

|-o-| Stormtroopers must give an order twice in order for someone to do it. ("Move along, move along", "Open the blast doors, open the blast doors!")

|-o-| We have a dianoga (a creature you wouldn't wanna run into) in our garbage disposal.

|-o-| We have several spots were there are bottomless pits in the Death Star and there's not even a "watch your step" sign.

|-o-| On the Death Star, there are two officers standing feet away from a beam that can vaporize a planet.

|-o-| Stormtroopers' armor offer no protection whatsoever (Arrows went through it on Endor. Not your fancy type. Ones made out of tree limbs and stones.)

|-o-| Our security was breached by a farm-boy, smuggler, princess, and a "walking carpet".

|-o-| Our moon-size battle station was destroyed by one rebel X-Wing.

|-o-| TIE Fighters have no shields.

|-o-| The Death Star had no shield, even though a rebel base was only minutes away.

|-o-| The Rebels had the Force.

|-o-| We have a nice, convenient trench leading to a nice, convenient thermal exhaust port leading to the "main reactor" which would conveniently blow up the place.

Being an Imperial does have an up side. We might look into that in the next issue.

Website Review


Fancy being a freelancer in the rough and tumble trade of bounty hunting?


Well you'll need some armor. And there's no better armor than the Mandalorian stuff that the Fettster gets around in.

This site has got it all. Down to the smallest detail. We're talking about tips to make the gun look like the real thing. And by all accounts it is the real thing. A real gun that is. The tips are to make it look more like the battle worn sawn off Fett model.

And what about boots, gloves, jumpsuit, accessories? It's all here.

But I think the helmet is a Don Post edition. So that's gonna cost some.
