As he strides into the bridge of his Executor Star Destroyer Darth Vader certainly attracts attention. As the banks of controllers in the strange command pit nervously work at the controls the Admiral of the Fleet starts to swallow down his anxiety and address the Dark Lord. “My Lord, we have pursued the Rebels to this location and we are preparing for the final assault”.

“Excellent Commander,” says Darth Vader not bothering to check the rank of the person he is speaking to because at the end of the day he is Darth Vader after all and they can shut their row, “now, quick question: how many TIE Fighters have we launched?”.

“Um, urr, I’ll have to check, is it hot in here?” says the Admiral fingering his collar in a meaningful way as the impassive helmet of Vader seems to stare quizzically at him.

Disaster! The readout on the amount of TIE fighters launched is only available on a PDF! Vader wants it on an Excel package! What can our poor Admiral do? He looks down at a minion at a monitor and barks the order “get that PDF to Excel now!”. This duly done he hands the Sith the report.

“Wow, that’s quite a lot. I see that you have not used quantitative reasoning in the report. You have failed me for the last time Admiral”. Oh dear.
