MAAN MAHTHAAMA (IN VIDEO)
...For twenty years, Charles
Palpatine has taken our rights
away. For twenty years, he has lied
to us about what happened to the
Jedi, and about who killed our
noble sister Padima. For twenty
years, we have given into tyranny.
That ends now-Laser blasts fill the video screen, along with screams. We
see scenes of panic and terror as the protesters try to flee
the carnage. The Captain and the First Mate’s eyes go wide.
They killed Maan! They’s killin’
humans! In the street!
The Captain turns to the hooded man.
’ere, fifty thousand ain’t
enough! The empire’s out for
and if you want us to keep
you need to do better!
Let’s turn him in! I bet he one of
the ones they came to Corellia for!
The Crewman opens the hooded man’s bag, revealing a large
block of ice. The hooded man realizes what the crewman is
doing, and looks down at him, mournfully.
I’m so sorry. To all of you. If I
had any alternative...
Alternative to what?
EXT. TATOOINE DESERT - TWILIGHT
A static shot of a vast expanse of desert, with massive
crags and mountains jutting towards the sky at the edge of
the expanse of dunes.
The flaming wreckage of the small ship streaks into the
ground like a meteorite, and explodes in a massive nuclear
fireball, rising above the horizon. The shockwave approaches
us and the sand blows around violently in the foreground.
