Subject: Application for Planet Conqueror Captain position (PCC32)

 

To whom it may concern

I would like to apply for the position of Planet Conqueror Captain. I am not affiliated to any planet or squadron. I have had many astro-years of experience and have acquired a solid understanding of the time space continuum. I also have qualifications in space mechanics and aeronautical engineering.

For your convenience I have provided a short summary of my recent battle experiences below. I have attached my CV and more detailed examples of my previous experience with this application. Also attached are copies of my references and qualifications.

 

  • Invasion of Rostron (planet with 10,000,000 land inhabitants): I commanded the initial invasion fleet and my crew took several high profile presidential hostages resulting in planet acquisition with only a small loss of populace life (<10%).

Specialist skills required: Aerospace fighting; Land fighting; Hostage capture and preservation

 

  • War of 100 Moons: I was squadron leader of 50 ships who landed on the target moons and conquered the inhabitants in 3 days when initially the invasion timeframe had been 6 days. The moons were surrendered accordingly and I was able to provide hostages and secure the transfer of the territories to my contracted planet.

Specialist skills required: Orbital fighting; Gravity defying invasion; Pilot manoeuvres through asteroid belts.

 

  • Fleet invasion of Sun Belt: I captained the Special Ops fleet of 120 troop members. This was a complex invasion as it occurred during the solar sun peak. This resulted in several large space storms. I was able to guide my fleet safely through these whilst under battle conditions and annihilate all the requested targets.

Specialist skills required: Space storm navigation; Special Ops leadership

 

Please let me know if you require any further information on my background and qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your consideration.

 

Regards

Alien Commander

Dear Alien Commander

We have reviewed your list of skills, previous invasions and battles, and contacted your referees. We are quite impressed with your experience and wish to offer you the position of Planet Conqueror Captain to assist us to take over the target world. Your contract with a list of allowances and benefits is included as an attachment. Let me know if you cannot access it.

Please note we will not provide compensation for life threatening injuries or terminality resulting from the invasion. After reviewing the contract, please complete and return a signed copy of the contract to us via email. We also require details of your next of kin and certified copies of your specified qualifications. We will accept email documentation of these.

Please arrange your own transport to Sadsonia, Origin Galaxy, 8275th quadrant in two weeks time. In the second attachment, please see a list of invasion objectives including targets and land acquisition. Please note, nuclear is in use by the territory to be invaded. Munitions and transportation vehicles will be provided. The time specified for the mission is 10 days. You will be given further specifics on invasion dates and times shortly. Do you require any additional equipment?

Regards

Dear Iphan

Thank you for your generous offer. I currently have a second in command (her employment conditions and remuneration requirements are contained in the attachment) who I require to accompany me. I will require an additional 5 senior crew members and 120 fleet soldiers who have mastered basic invasion training.

The 5 senior crew members will require the following skills:

  • 2+ years of senior aerospace fighting
  • 3+ years of principle field fighting
  • High level of paranormal language skills
  • 4+ years of space invasions
  • Fleet pilot licence

I will also require the following equipment for all crew members and soldiers:

  • Full body armour
  • Oxygen tanks
  • Laser swords
  • Insta-heal medicine kits (field category one)
  • Radiation suits
  • All transport to be enhanced with nuclear shields

Your invasion time of 10 days seems more than adequate if the requested crew and equipment can be provided. A planet with nuclear capabilities does provide some interesting challenges but I believe that this can be overcome with the right equipment.

My lawyer has reviewed the contract and we have no concerns. I have provided a signed version with this email and also included my next of kin details and certified copies of my qualifications. I look forward to meeting with you and the Future Conqueror at Sadsonia.

 

Regards

Alien Commander

Subject: RE: Planet Conqueror Captain position – additional benefits

 

Dear Alien Commander

 

Your requests are acceptable as are the conditions for your second in command. Please provide her details in the attached form for our human resources division.

We have begun recruiting for your troops and senior crew members. All transportation has nuclear shields. One of the short listed candidates for the senior crew member position has a Masters in Nuclear Science from the Segundo Galaxy University, which is distinguished for its nuclear science studies.

Since our previous email, the target planet has increased its defences, including launching several moderate-sized battleships, now in orbit. Due to the minor change of circumstances we have decided to also provide you with a 10% ownership stake in the mineral resources of this planet. This has been included in a revised contract (attached). The previous benefits and ownership stake will be transferable on either the surrendering of the target world’s leaders or annihilation of the populace. We do not require hostages, but request that the invasion does not result in ultimate destruction of the planet. We would like to acquire it for living purposes for our planet’s current population.

We look forward to meeting you soon. In the meantime if you have any queries, please feel free to contact me.

 

Yours in invasion

Dear Iphan

Thank you for your updated offer. In light of the changed circumstances, these new terms are acceptable compensation.

I am happy to accept all reasonable obligations of the contract and note that the planet’s inhabitants may be annihilated but certainly not the planet itself. Please find attached a signed version of the updated contract. I look forward to invasion day.

 

Mercenarily yours,

Alien Commander

  1. Good idea, presenting this as a resume and employment contract. It was a nice way of doing exposition and explaining what was happening.

  2. I like the superficial formality of the communication. (After all, taking over a planet is serious business.) It’s as if the employer doesn’t want to offend the employee because he can destroy him and the employee doesn’t want to offend the employer because he’s got the money and he can almost definitely hire someone else to take him out.

    Reminds of the mutual distrust in a typical office. Well done!
