So I'm reading some Wing Commander forums. Remember those games? Starred Mark Hamil? Anyways... some guy posts asking people what they think about the stats he made for a new fighter that would be featured in an upcoming fan fiction story of his.
The fighter was hideously overpowered. It had a lot of guns. It could go faster than any fighter before. It had the heaviest armor ever. It had TWO turrets. It was, pretty much, a piece of shit.
Then he posted his first chapter. I will highlight the best part:
Tardus: Even at Sol Sector? You are really less intelligent than what i thinked, Admiral.
Edward: But at least i hadn't sold myself to some corporate group, mister.
Tardus: Wha...What are you saying?
Edward activates his recorder.
Tardus: We shall begin disbanding our fleet soon. I will grant you a fair price, Mr. CEO.
CEO: Okay. Here is your payment.
Edward: I believe this is enough evidence to arrest you, and General Rodham also does.
That's pretty much it. Painful.
The worst thing is... I was reading a crossover between Star Wars and Wing Commander... and I actually kind of liked it.
