[wbizfixp] Invasion

Sio Bibble: A communications disruption can mean only one thing: invasion. (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace)

On one hand, it seems preposterous to jump to the conclusion of "invasion" when there seems to be so many other possible explanations for a communications disruption, and this quote was much mocked for it ("maybe instead your ISP is just being incompetent").

On the other hand, he was right.  Tell Bibble's dark backstory: he speaks from experience from the other side.  He has conducted quite a few planetary invasions in his own time and knows how to recognize the sum of the subtle and not-so-subtle signs of an impending invasion.  Perhaps he has inflicted catastrophic death tolls (in the trillions or more) on planets who were then forced to bow to his wishes.  Perhaps he's neglected to disrupt communications sometimes, and those invasions were disastrous failures.

This prequel (of a prequel) would work well within the Star Wars theme: lots of war.

Insert the flashbacks into his past in the middle of him speaking the sentence.
