In a Primitive Galaxy Far Far Away (Part 2)
How is it that the Trade Federation is able to send messages across hyperspace instantaneously but rather than inventing some form of ad hoc radio comms system they program their battle droids to communicate by speaking English (!!) Seems pretty inefficient to me. Thus, at the Battle of Rishi Moon, the only reason CC-7567 is able to gain entry to the base is because he can say “Roger Roger” while swinging around the head of a commando droid. Surely the droids would be aware that one of their number had been lost from the mesh?
While I’m at it, why would you build a command station for a battle droid army in a way which had no redundancy (Episode I)? I can’t imagine any modern army (public or private) having such a single point of failure.
For corporate hot shots the Trade Federation strike me as being a bit short on the basics. Perhaps they were duped by the Sith?
