Am I the only one who thinks its completly ridiculous that killing them nets you bad karma when killing Paulson or the samurai dude doesnt?Ohno21212 13:19, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
- Dante: All right, so even if independent contractors are working on the Death Star, why are you uneasy with its destruction?
- Randal: All those innocent contractors hired to do a job were killed. Casualties of a war they had nothing to do with. All right, look-you're a roofer, and some juicy government contract comes your way; you got the wife and kids and the two-story in suburbia-this is a government contract, which means all sorts of benefits. All of a sudden these left-wing militants blast you with lasers and wipe out everyone within a three-mile radius. You didn't ask for that. You have no personal politics. You're just trying to scrape out a living. --Carpathian Cookie 14:03, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
You forgot the rest of it:
Blue-Collar Man: Excuse me. I don't mean to interrupt, but what were you talking about?
Randal: The ending of Return of the Jedi.
Dante: My friend is trying to convince me that any contractors working on the uncompleted Death Star were innocent victims when the space station was destroyed by the rebels.
Blue-Collar Man: Well, I'm a contractor myself. I'm a roofer... (digs into pocket and produces business card) Dunn and Reddy Home Improvements. And speaking as a roofer, I can say that a roofer's personal politics come heavily into play when choosing jobs.
Koldingfjord:Bullshit! The enclave scientists does not try to kill you either, but you don't get any negativ karma for that! You should NOT get negativ karma for killing the alien workers!
Randal: Like when?
Blue-Collar Man: Three months ago I was offered a job up in the hills. A beautiful house with tons of property. It was a simple reshingling job, but I was told that if it was finished within a day, my price would be doubled. Then I realized whose house it was.
Dante: Whose house was it?
Blue-Collar Man: Dominick Bambino's.
Randal: "Babyface" Bambino? The gangster?
Blue-Collar Man: The same. The money was right, but the risk was too big. I knew who he was, and based on that, I passed the job on to a friend of mine.
Dante: Based on personal politics.
Blue-Collar Man: Right. And that week, the Foresci family put a hit on Babyface's house. My friend was shot and killed. He wasn't even finished shingling.
Randal: No way!
Blue-Collar Man: (paying for coffee) I'm alive because I knew there were risks involved taking on that particular client. My friend wasn't so lucky. (pauses to reflect) You know, any contractor willing to work on that Death Star knew the risks. If they were killed, it was their own fault. A roofer listens to this... (taps his heart) not his wallet.
They're "super-advanced", highly intelligent beings from a galaxy far far away, and they know damn right what they're helping accomplish, and in light of the above reference, and the fact that they are annoying as hell, I say, "Shut the f@%k up little girl! Time for alien flambe!". This is the part where I mercilessly mow through the little, red-wrapped twerps and drown-out their ear-curling screams with my gatling laser. Screw the karma loss, I know I'm doin the "right thing" on this one. Besides, way I look at it? I gave an awful lot of beggars an awful lot of water so I could have a guilt-free pass at alien-extermination. --DashMan54 20:30, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
These guys are unarmed, so...
... these guys gave me negative Karma. The first two I shot to pieces while Sally said I shouldnt kill those. Does anyone else had Neg Karma? Also, does it make any difference if you dont kill any of them at all? --Radnus 18.104.22.168 18:25, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I think everyone's getting negative karma for killing them, and there's prob no real difference if you kill 'em or not, it's just good 'Ol fashion fun.--DashMan54 19:06, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Killing them is evil. After all, they aren't the ones kidknapping, dismembering, and transforming innocent humans for centuries. They just keep the equipment running for the guys that do. Hey, if a job had been available on the alien pleasure barge, they would have jumped at that! Who wants to be hanging around on some backwater planet, eating preserved alien worm food, when you could be on a pleasure barge eating imported exploded brahmin heads? It's really unfair to hold them responsible just because they're the ones who sharpen the saw and forget to lube the anal probe... DreadPirateMurphy 03:21, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
They forgot to lube the anal probe?!? WAR I SAY!--DashMan54 13:18, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Behind the Scenes
- If listened carefully, Alien Workers can be heard to shout something like "Demon" before running away from the PC. This can be a refence to the Halo series where the protagonist is known as "Demon" in the ranks of the Covenant. Grunts have close behaviour to Alien Workers: running away shouting "Demon"
