History of the Jedi

Here is a holonet reference for those who wish to know.

I found this as part of my studing for my Admiral's test, and I want to share with you.

Aren't I nice?


Jedi History

An old Joke

But, I had not head it in quite a while, intil recently, when it was told to me by a an ensign.

An Old Arconian man lived alone on his home planet. He wanted to dig his tomato
garden, but it was very hard work as the ground was hard.

His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man
wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

Dear Vincent,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my
tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a
garden plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the
plot for me.
Love Dad

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Dad,
Not for nothing, but don't dig up that garden.
That's where I buried the BODIES.
Love Vinnie

At 4 a.m. the next morning, Imperail Secret Service agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left.

The next day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Dad,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now.
That's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love Vinnie

You are ANY MORE USELESS, ID BE A CAT, a fun-loving mixed mutt with a red nose causing controversies with your common sense. You can be found both behind and in front of a camera, occasionally at the same time. You are happy to hone a skill, or ham it up, but you are the penultimate friend, always available to help someone renovate, fix a car, or move a body. Mainly, if you are ANY MORE USELESS, ID BE A CAT, it is because you do not like cats.

And I thought that...

Hello, my fellow space travelers.

Here I thought that being on the 'List' for promotion into the admiralty would be my ticket to easy street, but, as it turns out, all those still above you want you to prove yourself and your loyalty by assigning you duties that seem somewhat unnessecery or down-right silly.

I have been very busy shuttling between Coruscant and Other worlds to escort ships, or oversee and inventory of a facility, or conduct a shakedown cruise of a new vessel (which is actually fun).

All this reminds me of the sort of things we had to do back when I first joined the Rebellion. We had our heads shaved and we were called 'Pods' becuase of how funny most of us humans looked with bald heads. The hazing is a way to see if you follow orders and will do whatever you are told without question.

So, it has been a while since I was able to sit down here at my temporary office and really write something worth reading. I still have not selected an aide, but I am starting to look at those I work with as potential victims, er I mean candidates.

Just to Clear things up...

The previous post / test was based on the 'extended universe' characters of out world. This is all the books and comics that have been published over the years. Of course all you REAL Star Wars fans know this, so if the rest of you are a little confused, that could be the reason.

As for me, I am planning on starting a new corporation that will get contracts from the Republic's Military. Our job will be parking starships in space-dock. I am sure that I could prove to the Republican Council's sub-sub-committee on military costs, that I could do it faster and cheaper than the military personnel. It would be the most expensive valet service in the galaxy!

Well, I am done parking the big-ships, so it is my turn to head planet-side and have a little fun.

Have a good weekend, my friends.

Why I love to hate questions...

I was visiting Jaina and decided to take this little test:






I took the New Jedi Order Character Quiz and All I got was this lousy picture.

this quiz was made by jedifreac



This is the Anankin, the younger, not Anakin/Vader. So, I guess it's OK.

Up On The Bridge

It was a big week, last week, and this one should prove interesting also.

Now that I have been put on the promotions list, my life has become a little more complicated. First, I need to identify and start grooming my replacement for Rogue Squadron. I have a couple of people in mind, but I have not decided yet on who to choose.

The other big new duty is I am on the duty roster for bridge commander rotation. This means that I report to the bridge as the Admiral's replacement, or second, or what-ever, when the Admiral is not available.

The fleet is has now returned to Corsecant and I was ordered to 'bring the fleet in'. This meant that the Admiral could take his shuttle planet side while I parked the carrier and positioned the fleet. It looked easy, reading it on the montior, but it is a detail-oriented process that takes many hours.

The captain of the Organa also flew off with the Admiral and his scond-in-command, Lt. Commander Grish, stood ont the bridge with me. We did have fun inching the big vessel into spacedock.

Now, instead of heading planet-side, I am requried to visit each ship in the fleet and personally inspect their skeleton crews to ensure that they can be ready if we need to ship out at a moment's notice.

See, isn't flag command a bunch of fun?

Another Monday

Don't you just hate 'em?

The fleet was in transit from the outer-rim maneuvers headed back to Corellia for upgrades and repairs. I will be able to stop back on my home planet and spend a little time with old friends and relatives.

On the way we pulled over for fuel and R&R at a small system called Vejas. It is an oasis system that has become popular with cargo vessels hauling ore and other materials from the outer rim into the Republic's growing economy.

Everyone on the fourth planet (the only inhabital shpere in the system) got really nervousl when the fleet popped in unannounced. But as soon as we let them know we were only passing through, things settled down and most of the crew got liberty and enjoyed themselves.

But, now we are back on the road again and slowly headed back to our military headquarters. Maybe I am hungover this morning, but I still hate the first day of the week.
