Mission Report
This was a quiet, unremarkable, event with barely a trickle of public throughout the duration although it noticeable was starting to get busier in the last half hour or so before we finished.
Nonetheless I shall remember it, not for doubtless bemusement of whoever will review the customer feedback card singing the praises of Luke and Rey in days to come and not for the priceless reaction of the member of the public who opened the door to our changing area just as we ended a break and got the fright of his life when confronted by Vader, a First Order Trooper, Chewbacca, Luke and an X-Wing Pilot on the other side of it.
While our changing room Porg shenanigans and Team Skywalkers mastery of a cube puzzle will long burn bright in my mind and I won’t be quick to forget Mister McDavid’s constant disappointment that nobody was on the other side of the lift doors all day none of these will remain my overriding memory of the event.

Instead it will be the simple words of newly minted centennial trooper Paul Smith, somehow still fresh from his week of ROS-related events while the rest of us were overly tired and emotional, with his beautiful, wise reminder of why we all do this which brought a lump to my throat and continues even now to moisten my eyes…

HIS STYGIUM-TRIPRISMATIC ARMOUR IS LACED WITH SENSOR-JAMMERS AND SOUND DAMPENERS, MAKING HIM ALL BUT UNDETECTABLE. EVEN HIS WEAPON - A DC-19 "STEALTH" CARBINE WITH BUILT-IN SUPPRESSOR - DOES NOT BETRAY HIM. HIS IS TRULY A SHADOW ARMY, AN ENEMY YOU WILL NEVER SEE... NEVER HEAR... UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE.
