Much has been said about how the not-Empire's actions make very little sense. Some of my past comics covered this topic already. But I had this idea kicking around for awhile to try and connect all their incompetencies as being the result of an extended labour dispute. The final punch line being Maz as the union buster. It amused me anyways.
As a bonus- my only real thought from the Episode IX's "No one is ever really gone"
Probably should be subtitled: "We're Back!"
After bringing back Maul, this really isn't too far-fetched a scenario...
