'Star Wars' fans finally found a competent Stormtrooper
Notoriously poor marksmanship is a hallmark of Imperial Stormtroopers. Despite Obi-Wan saying that these folks are "precise," almost everything we've seen on screen suggests the opposite. In most Star Wars films, specifically the classic trilogy, Stormtroopers have a rough time actually hitting major members of the Rebellion with their blaster bolts. But there is one hero of the Empire hiding in plain sight. Star Wars fans have identified TK-714, the only guy in the Battle of Endor who managed to actually wound someone who was very integral to the Rebellion.
On Friday, the Twitter account @Depressed Darth handed-out a tongue-in-cheek Employee of the Month award to TK-714, a Stormtrooper who totally doesn't have an entry on Wookiepedia or the Star Wars Databank, but who totally should. And that's because this is the only guy who got close to taking out a leader of the Rebellion.
