Excellent stuff. An excerpt:
Vader on Innovation: Admiral
Ozzol took the fleet out of hyperspace too close to Hoth, and the Rebel
Alliance were — you guessed it — alerted to our approach. The
cornerstone of Ozzel’s arrogance is his insistence that rebel
technology is so vastly inferior to Imperial technology that we need
broker no caution.
This attitude is typical of a man who could
not rephase his own fusion orb if his life depended on it. He cannot
fathom what rebel engineers may accomplish out of desperation. People
who are good with things, people like me, can appreciate the infinite
diversity of possible tools buried in artful combinations of even the
humblest technologies. Give me an hour to reconfigure an industrial
grade repulsolift and I will give you an ion cannon and enough parts
left over to build a droid to run it.
Ozzel just isn’t the creative type.
