Deep in the inner workings of the Death Star, R2-L7 returns to his quarters after a long day of work. Behind him, he carries his trusty lunch box, which he uses to salvage any interesting discarded items he happens to find on the Death Star.
Home at last!
R2-L7 has decorated his room with a string of Christmas lights that he found long ago. He also has an old television, plus a huge computer interface which allows him to monitor his assigned area of the Death Star twenty-four hours a day. On the TV stand sit two of his most prized items, a video tape of his favorite movie and a small plant that he takes great care of.
A shelf on the side of the room holds all of the treasures R2-L7 has found over the course of his years of service. He could use a little more space! Some items of interest include a Rubik's Cube (custom decals), a soccer ball, and even a lightsaber!
Uh oh, it looks like there's a problem in Sector 2. R2-L7 goes to his computer interface to diagnose the problem.
Time to head out for an emergency call! Activate the trapdoor!
R2-L7 hops in, into...
His maintenance pod! It’s a small ship that allows for easy space travel between spots on the Death Star. It is held in place underneath R2-R7's home by a set of clamps. It isn't suited for long-distance space travel or combat, but it helps him get the job done!
Anyway, that's my entry, hope you all like it! I think its finished, but I may decide to make some changes in the coming month. My favorite part is the shelf- getting all of those items to balance was quite an effort! Comments and constructive criticism are greatly appreciated.

I like the contrast of the messy and cramped shelving to the clean and crisp floor and computer.
