Deadly promotion

Flag Post

Imagine that you are a low-ranked imperial officer in Star Wars. You have a decent record and reputation, which makes you the right-hand of the main destroyer admiral. One day, your team is tasked by Darth Vader himself to attack a rebel planet. As soon as the order is issued, you and your superior start working on approaching the objective in a stealthy way. However, the admiral messes up and Darth Vader force chokes him in front of you. He proposes you to take his place.

Do you accept the promotion knowing that he’ll execute you in cold blood if you make a mistake? You will have a better salary and better work conditions. Furthermore, if you survive your job, you may climb enough ranks to become Darth Vader’s superior just like captain Tarkin. If that occurs, you’ll no longer have to fear and respect him. It will be the other way around.

Do you refuse the promotion? If you do, Darth Vader will make sure that you never receive any promotion in the rest of your military career. You’ll be safe, but you won’t get far in life either.

Which one do you choose?

I’ll accept the promotion, then wear a tinfoil hat.

I doubt I would get off that easy if I refused him. I take the former option, as I’m a fairly competent worker.

In that situation, we assume that the only thing Darth Vader would do if you refuse is write a negative comment in your record.

Well even so, I would stick with the promotion, because it’s better to strive for something. Although in this scenario it’s not really a good thing, but hey, it’s accomplishing more than I would without the promotion.

I’ll accept the promotion, and strive to work flawlessly.

Will you execute me by even making a slight mistake, though? In that case, I don’t think I can last over a month with him cold bloodingly executing me.

At one point, he tried to kill someone for insulting the force. That said, he is pretty choleric. However, he decided to spare an officer once, so it probably depends on his mood.

Well, I seem to have bad luck so I might decline the promotion.

I accept. What stops him from just killing me then and there if I don’t? Nothing. So either get money and live, or don’t get money and die.

He’ll just find someone else to fill the gap while making sure you never get a promotion again by leaving a negative note in your record.
