    Ever think about how the Blade Runner BACK STORY began? What do you think? :confused

    BLADE RUNNER - ORIGINS
    Title 71 U.S.C. Section 47 – The use or presence of manufactured humanoid Replicants outside a production facility is illegal in the global earth federation. Penalties: Upon detection, Replicants are subject to immediate retirement. Replicant use by citizens or corporations are punishable offenses that include imprisonment for life, termination of corporate entities, and fines not to exceed two hundred billion credits per incident.
    Historical: The 2016 Replicant revolt in the OFF-WORLD mining colony on LV-426 resulted in the death of 1.4 million human inhabitants of the resident city states. The Replicant revolt manifested in a wholesale slaughter of all human inhabitants on sight and culminated in the release of bioweapons of mass destruction upon human populations. Terra-forming operations and lost territories included four base continents and subsidiary island states. The decimated human colony loss was resolved by orbital planetary nuclear bombardment of all land masses followed by a complete culling of all remaining Replicants by colonial marine ground forces. LV-426 serves as a warning to the use and application of Replicant humanoid deployment in large human populated societies. Title 71 U.S.C. Section 47 was enacted by unanimous mandate the following day.
    The federal law and authority of Title 71 U.S.C. Section 47 is transferred to state and local authority for enforcement.
    LAPD response: 2016
    Los Angeles Police Department – US Continent – Global Federation circa 2016: Replicant detection and retirement operations commence April 2016 – Dec 2016. LAPD Surrender and compliance units retire seven thousand and fifty one (7351) replicants. LAPD Enforcement Units locate and retire two thousand and thirty (2035) identified replicants. The psychological stress and impact on Law Enforcement Detectives/Officers have an unanticipated result. Replicants so resemble human counterparts in appearance and human interaction that a large number of enforcement officers suffer post-traumatic stress disorder in the wholesale slaughter of replicants. Many suffer guilt, social anxiety disorder, depression, generalized anxiety, and a high rate of suicide. The replicant detectives walk a fine line between enforcement agents and psychotic killers. Replicant enforcement has a high burn out rate among detectives.
    Blade Runner TAG (origins): One replicant detective used a social media to document his psychotic break down and rants about “running along the razor sharp edge of a blade as he slides into insanity.” The Detective devolved in a very public way. He admits to enjoying the kill and then he commits a very public suicide. The social media calls him the “Blade Runner.” The coined phrase “Blade Runner” sticks.
    January 2017 – “Blade Runner” Detection and retirement special operations enforcement sections are formed as permanent units.
    LAPD - January 2017 to December 2017 - Operations detect and retire one thousand and eighteen (1018) replicants. Detection and retirement units retain the nickname Blade Runner. Careful selection of candidates begins for all Blade Runner assignments. June 2018 – LAPD logs only 118 replicant cases. January 2019 all replicants in the Los Angeles area are publically declared …RETIRED.
    LAPD Replicant Policy: It is the policy of the LAPD to retire any replicant on sight of detection by the use of whatever force is necessary to effect that retirement. It is recognized that any replicant exposed to detection represents an extraordinary hazard to public safety. Replicants in fear of detection have acted in a wanton and reckless manner that includes wholesale slaughter of both the detection officer and anyone in the public who might stand in their way of escape. A replicant will act aggressively if threatened. The policy of capture and restraint was abandoned after a replicant decapitated the LAPD detection specialist during an interview and proceeded on a killing spree that left forty citizens injured or dead before her retirement. Although the use of a Police issue PKD blaster in public is hazardous at best, the overall threat to the public is greater by hesitation or inaction. Replicants are to be retired upon detection.
    Weapons and Equipment: Blade Runner Detectives are issued military grade PKD Blaster sidearms. They are equipped with electronic range finder tracking units, auto trace and quick aim point sighting. The bolt action top chamber allows the use of specialized armor piercing explosive rounds, High explosive HE, or fragmentation rounds depending on the need or situation. The top chamber opens to insert the supersized shell. The super chambered rounds are designed to be antipersonnel, anti-vehicle, or anti-material. The round can be used to penetrate a building or room and programmed to explode upon entry. The PKD offers a wide range of adaptations to effect the retirement of a replicant even in a sealed bunkered room. The pistol is equipped with a “Speed six” chambered hollow point hypervelocity rounds as standard issue. Specialized rounds can include hydroshock, force plus–P, or No Rico ammunition. Blade Runner units are trained in rigorous paramilitary combat shooting scenarios and live fire exercises.
    Blade Runner Detectives – lost – line of duty: (Seventy-One) A Blade Runner detective is one of the highest risk jobs in the Police Department. Chances of a “line of duty” death are one in seven. A Blade Runner Detective may retire after one full year of service with full pension.
    Posthumous awards for meritorious service:
    Detective Rolo Tomassi – LA 2016, Detective Angelo Gino – LA 2017, Detective Phillip K. Dick – LA 2018, Detective Harrison Ford – LA 2019, Detective Rick Ross – LA 2019, Detective Vander Holden – LA 2019

    Awesome writing! Really enjoyed this read. I thought the origin you came up with for the term "Blade Runner" was interesting, and the L.A. Confidential reference was neat.

    Acutally I wrote the whole thing. :love

    I work in Law Enforcement and it would be extrodinary for a Police Department to advocate Officers suddenly shooting someone in a very public area without regard for the damage you might cause. Policy changes and I wondered what might force the LAPD to create BLADE RUNNER UNITS with the authority to shoot replicants on sight. I always was hoping someone would make a prequel about the use of replicants as slaves and suddenly rising up against their human opressors. To ban the use of replicants from Earth ... would take a really bloody revolt. I thought I came up with one. :cool

    I also wanted a function for each of the features of the PKD Blaster prop. If you have a big bolt action opening - it is always to drop in a BIG Bullet. Putting down a replicant might require military grade ordence to put down. What I posted was an outline for a short story and BLADE RUNNER case files. The movie is a classic and has a cult following. I plan to complete a briefing guide an print a BLADE RUNNER operations book. I contains history, law, policy, tech specs, and policy to VK replicants and retire upon detection. Offer the whole package as a PDF file. Illustrated and numbered. :lol

    Thanks for the responses!! Gordon

    The ONE upside to selling your blaster ... is there is ALWAYS a new BLADE RUNNER blaster being made by someone. There is a brand new upgraded version of the OFFWORLD version and a brand new SNUB version of the RPF. I want them all. :facepalm I need the cash to make the purchases !!!

    I wish Rick Ross would do a second run on all his resin Blade Runner kits. :love Rick Ross is a BLADE RUNNER god.:cool

    Someone , somewhere , has to make a Prequel or Sequel to BLADE RUNNER. :love Maybe my story will get someone to take a second look at a new film? There has to be a studio out there will to take the shot!!!

    Ok, now I've got to send Matsuo an e-mail to see if he can do me a PKD like he did my BSG S1 Blaster.

    I'm looking forward to reading the "Blade Runner Case Files"

    Just re-discovered the Blade Runner Experience.

    I picked up the 5 disk Blue Ray set for less than $ 30 of Amazon. The extra four versions - and nine hours of behind the scene commentary - make for an extrodinary new experience. The richness of seeing the lost scenes, the narative voice over version, and last but not least - the WORKPRINT - leaves me in awe.

    Re-experience the magic of Blade Runner :love

    I don't have Blue ray yet but i'm aiming for the set in the metal case off amazon at some point. I'd love to make a VK machine to fit in the case. Once you get all the stuff put together and offer the PDF I'll get getting one for my buddy and his BR collection that i buy for every year.

    Here is the link I used:

    Amazon.com: Blade Runner (Five-Disc Complete Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray]: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer, Edward James Olmos, Ridley Scott: Movies & TV

    It includes all five disks and the nine hours of additional material. The different versions and deleted scenes make it worthwhile. There is an addtional scene with Deckard visiting Holden in the ICU - and talking frankly about the replicants. The naration version and the first WORKPRINT !! The background/making of sections included the design and building of the sets. :love

    Blade Runner is one film that resurfaces year after year with new fan produced tributes - The PKD Blaster is constant being interpreted by different artists and collectors - I just picked the Rubber Cast version from japan - love it. The prospects of a Blade Runner sequel are in discussion with Ridley Scott. These are exciting times!

    While taking a look at BAD WOLF's new Blade Runner Patrolman Holster - I rediscovered my own post on the LAPD Policy for use of force and BLADE RUNNER units. I wish Ridley Scott would get on a sequel !!!
