EMPEROR’S BALL: TARKIN WINS GALACTIC EMPIRE SERVICE AWARD FOR ‘BEST PUBLIC SERVANT’ AFTER KRENNIC MISTAKENLY ANNOUNCED AS WINNER.
Guests and attendees alike of the 17th annual Emperor’s Ball were left in horror as Governor Wilhuff Tarkin collected the Galactic Empire Service Award for ‘Best Public Servant’ moments after Director Orson Krennic was announced as the winner.
The incident, being widely dubbed as ‘Orsoff Chronic’ ended with Tarkin snatching the ceremonial plaque out of Krennic’s hands mid-way though his acceptance speech after promising to ‘work harder than ever to further the needs of all Imperial citizens.’
Tarkin promptly laughed the incident off, and remarked ‘such incompetence is only to be expected in the presence of so much frivolity and merriment. I do of course, refer to the liquors that have been wafting amongst the crowd for much of the evening.’ The Governor of the Seswanna Oversector then recounted his accomplishments in regard to removing the rebel presence in the Salient system, and promised, whilst classified, his current endeavours would bring security and peace to the Empire ‘as yet unseen in the realms of living memory.’
In an exclusive interview after the event, Krennic discussed the incident with me: “Yes, it was nothing short of unfortunate, really. However I would like to make it absolutely clear, that my resolve to serve the peoples of this vast Empire remains entirely undiminished, despite the lunacy.”
