We've been in extensive "upgraded" combat training at the base here on Coruscant for a month now. Not only have we been in training, but the 305th was assigned to conduct some basic self - defense courses for civilians. You'd be suprised how many people show up for those kinds of programs, after all, sparring and vibroblades aren't going to do you much good against a blaster. But there are alternatives to shootouts. The best thing that's happened in the past month here actually, was comedy. Those stuck - up bureucrats had a little "problem" with the Senate complex. A certain Senator "accidentally" set a thermal detonator off in the complex. Of course, we had to assist the Coruscant Fire control in keeping people calm, but the funniest thing that I saw was a Senator, crying because he "wet" himself, and his expensive attire, of fright when he heard the blast. No one was injured, but that Senator's ego surely suffered. And, as we leave that subject behind, I would like to simply assure you that we had nothing to do with the Thermal blast. Honestly.
