I can’t see a thing in this helmet.

This is not going to work. Why didn’t you say so before? I did say so before! Where are you taking this…thing? Prisoner transfer from Block one-one-three-eight. I wasn’t notified. I’ll have to clear it. Look out! We’ve got to find out which cell this princess of yours is in. Here it is…cell twenty-one-eight-seven. You go get her. I’ll hold them here. Everything is under control. Situation normal. What happened? Uh…had a slight weapons malfunction. But, uh, everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here, now, thank you. How are you? We’re sending a squad up. Uh, uh, negative. We had a reactor leak here now. Give us a few minutes to lock it down. Large leak…very dangerous. Who is this? What’s your operating number? Boring conversation anyway. Luke! We’re going to have company!

Stretch out with your feelings. You see, you can do it. I call it luck. In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck. Look, going good against remotes is one thing. Going good against the living? That’s something else. Looks like we’re coming up on Alderaan. You know, I did feel something. I could almost see the remote. That’s good. You have taken your first step into a larger world.

He is here… Obi-Wan Kenobi!

What makes you think so? A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master. Surely he must be dead by now. Don’t underestimate the power of the Force. The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that’s left of their religion. Yes. Governor Tarkin, we have an emergency alert in detention block A A-twenty-three. The princess! Put all sections on alert!

He says he’s found the main computer to power the tractor beam that’s holding the ship here. He’ll try to make the precise location appear on the monitor. The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave. I don’t think you boys can help. I must go alone. Whatever you say. I’ve done more that I bargained for on this trip already. Be patient, Luke. Stay and watch over the droids. But he can…


There she is. See-Threepio, do you copy?

For the moment. Uh, we’re in the main hangar across from the ship. We’re right above you. Stand by. You came in that thing? You’re braver that I thought. Nice! Come on! It’s them! Blast them! Get back to the ship! Where are you going? Come back! He certainly has courage. What good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on! I think we took a wrong turn. There’s no lock! That oughta hold it for a while. Quick, we’ve got to get across. Find the control that extends the bridge. Oh, I think I just blasted it. They’re coming through! Here, hold this. Here they come! For luck!

Admiral, we’re in position. All fighters accounted for.

Proceed with the countdown. All groups assume attack coordinates. Don’t worry, my friends are down there. They’ll have that shield down on time… or this’ll be the shortest offensive of all time. All craft, prepare to jump to hyperspace on my mark. All right. Stand by.

If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed. Young fool…only now, at the end, do you understand. Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side.

Perhaps you refer to the imminent attack of your Rebel fleet. Yes…I assure you we are quite safe from your friends here. Your overconfidence is your weakness. Your faith in your friends is yours. It is pointless to resist, my son. Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends up there on the Sanctuary Moon are walking into a trap. As is your Rebel fleet! It was I who allowed the Alliance to know the location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. Oh…I’m afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive.
