Its been a slow week on Coruscant for our unit. The Lt. Cmdr is still away at Big Brother: Naboo and we have been given some R&R time.
Several of the Troopers in the unit have taken to following some kind of space soap opera on the Holonet about a Private Jusdon or Hudson or something. They seem obsessed with the story, which they insist is real. Of course they are all Batch 3 clones, so what can you expect. (to find out more about Batch 3 click here and here )
After spending the morning on duty, I headed back to the barracks to change out of the armor and then I am off to the Coruscant Archives.
When I get to the barracks it seem like all heck is breaking loose inside.
“Game over Man!! Game over”
“Some one save Huxley”
“Ahhhhh, Bug Hunt!!!!”
“Cover Galacta!! Now quick!!”
The voices roared through the hall, along with the sound of some kind of small arms fire like a Tatoonine slug shooter.
As I burst in to the room mayhem is every where. I see several troopers flipping bunks over, diving behind lockers and running like mad.
“I’m Private Hudson, and I am here to save you” shouts a trooper
What kind of blaster does that trooper have?
“No way man, I’m Hudson and it game over for you” Yell another clone.
“Well. I’m the real Hudson. Me and Boba are protecting Queen Galacta!”
What in the name of the Kamino makers is going on here? Why does that trooper have a wig on and where did he get the cantaloupes from? And where did that kid come from? (looks kind of funny)
I shout at the top of my voice “What the is going on here! Why have you thrashed this place!”
They all stop and look at me.
“Uhh, we were just trying to be like Private Hudson. You know from the Holonet” one trooper say sheepishly
“Yeah, we just play acting” another chimes in. “General Kenobi says it good for us to have heroes. I think he meant him, but we like Hudson better”
I look around at the mess and the weird outfits. “Okay, your lot are Hudson, and DK 198 is some kind of blonde alien…”
“Uh that Queen Galacta” one trooper informs me
“Okay, then Queen Galacta. But your in a wig” I reply
“Yeah” say DK 198 “ I got lucky to play the Queen”
“And you in the lazy boy, who are you supposed to be” I called out
“I am Vasquez!.” He calls back
Another clone yell, “you don’t look any thing like Vasquez!!! Look at my outfit.”
Vasquez?? Who is Vasquez????
“Yarrggggg! Grrrrrr… Look at me, I’m a Xenomorph! Grrrr” Trooper ML 567 shouts as he runs into the room.
Just as I think this is all going to go even more wrong, Commander Cody walked into the barracks.
“Thank goodness you are here Commander” I begin to say, “There is something very wrong going on here”
“ I can see that, trooper.” Commander Cody say with authority, “I was supposed to get to be Queen Galacta!! Damm you, Damm you all for starting without me”
I just head out of the barracks and hope Lt. Cmdr. Oneida come back soon. Really soon.
