The 212th Battalion continues the battle against the CIS Droid Army on the plains of Oner while advancing towards to the Barracks.


    



Battle Droid 458C: Die, clones, die!

Laser blasts!



    



Trooper Nero over internal comlink: We have reached the droid barracks, but the base is heavily defended. We are taking fire! Over!

Commander Cody: Hold your position! The 3rd squad should be flanking to the east by now.

Laser blasts!






Laser blasts!





Trooper Ce’Ti: More droids incoming!

Trooper Nero over internal comlink: No sign of the other squad, Commander. We’ll hold out as long as we……

Laser blasts!






Trooper Dzrl: UUGGHH!

Trooper Ce’Ti:

Trooper Nero: Scatter! Scatter!

Laser blasts!






Trooper Ce’Ti over comlink: Man down! I need a Medic!

Trooper Dzrl: ………………






Trooper Ce’Ti: Where is the other squad———

Laser blasts!






Trooper Nero: Must run faster……must run faster……must run faster……





Trooper Dzrl: ……must run fast——

Laser blasts!






While the main battle continues, Commander Cody and two members from the 212th have separated from the main group in an attempt to salvage the mission and defeat Droid Commander OOM-12.

Commander Cody over comlinkl Ce’Ti? Nero? Come in!

Trooper Kyde: They’re down, sir.

Trooper Tybox: Wreckage ahead.






Trooper Kyde: The Gunship must have taken heavy fire from the anti-aircraft turrets. It appears to be a supplies transport.





Commander Cody: Check for survivors.

Trooper Kyde & Tybox: Yes, sir.






Trooper Tybox: The pilots apparently survived the crash, but were shot attempting to flee the wreckage. They were ambushed, sir.





Trooper Kyde: These troopers are dead, Commander.





Commander Cody: We’ve lost too many……is there anything left of the supplies?





Trooper Tybox: No, sir. Everything has been destroyed…or contaminated. Wait……there is something……





Trooper Tybox: The two speeder bikes appear to be functional, sir.





Commander Cody: Unload the speeders. We’re going to need them. Remain with the supplies ship and contact Central Command, Tybox. Kyde and I will continue the search for the target on the speeders.





A bit later…

Trooper Kyde: Do you think this will work, sir?






Commander Cody: Doesn’t matter what I think, trooper. It has to work.





Trooper Kyde: We’re approaching the last known coordinates of the target, sir.





Commander Cody: Stay with the speeders.





Commander Cody: If I don’t return in five minutes, report back to General Kenobi.





Trooper Kyde: Yes, sir. Good luck.





Commander Cody enters a dense forest looking for traces of their ’target’.

Commander Cody: (thinking) Footprints……and they’re fresh. Shouldn’t be too difficult to find it now…






Commander Cody: (thinking) Where are you? I know…you’re…around…here…





Commander Cody: ……somewhere. Now to get your attention…





Commander Cody: HEY! DOWN HERE!





Commander Cody: How about this?!

Laser blast!

RRRROOOOOOOAAAARRRRR!






Commander Cody: That got his attention—uh-oh—

RRRROOOOAAARRRRR!






Commander Cody: Time to go…





RRRROOOAAARRR!

THUD! THUD! THUD!






Commander Cody: That’s it……this way……

RRRROOOOOAAAARRRRRR!

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Trooper Kyde: Look at the size of that thing.

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Commander Cody: Move it, Trooper!!!

RRROOOAAAAARRRRR!

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Commander Cody: Get back to the battle. Tell General Kenobi to charge the Droid Barracks with the full battalion.

Trooper Kyde: Yes sir!

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Commander Cody: I’ll meet you there momentarily.

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Meanwhile, back on the battlefield…

Turret laser blasts!






THUD!

Battle Droid 2251: Did you hear something?






Battle Droid 3373: Roger roger!

THUD! THUD!

Battle Droid 2251: What that?






Commander Cody speeds by on the BARC bike.

Battle Droid 2251: Clone trooper!

THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!






Battle Droid 2251 Uh-oh…

Battle Droid 3373: ROGER ROGER!!!

RRRROOOOAAAARRR!!!






Battle Droid 2251: RRRUUNNN!—

CRUNCH!






THUD! THUD! THUD! THUD!





Battle Droid 2251: ……creature……incoming……battle……sta—bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz……

THUD! THUD! THUD!






Back on the battlefield……

Battle Droid 237A: Several squads have broken thru the perimeter defenses.

Droid Commander OOM-12: Order all available units to return to the barracks.






Trooper Faar: Fire!

Laser blasts!






Droid Comander OOM-12: Enemy targets! Advance the line. Activate all destroyer droids.

(Droid Transmission) All available units report to the Barracks. All available units report to the Barracks.

Laser blasts!






(Droid Transmission:) All available units report to the Barracks. All available units report to the Barracks.

CLANK! CLANK! CLANK!






Sagev: The droids……they’re leaving. No matter…I’ll finish these troopers by myself.





Trooper Otar: Ugghh!

Trooper Ryaar: Hey—






Trooper Faar: Keep firing! We can’t lose this position!

Laser blast!






Sagev: You never had it.

Trooper Faar: BLEH!!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: HALT! Identify yourself, warrior. This battle does not concern you. Surrender, and you will not be harmed.

Anakin Skywalker: What?! He’s been killing our troops, Master!






Anakin Skywalker: He didn’t give them the chance to ’surrender’!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: ANAKIN WAIT!!






Sagev: Jedi……just as Count Dooku predicted.





Sagev: ARGH!





CLASH!

Sagev: It is you, Jedi, that should surrender.






Anakin Skywalker: I’ll remember that when I have your head!





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Why are only those two Magna Guards returning?

CLANK! CLANK! CLANK!






SLASH!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: One down…






Anakin Skywalker: What’s the matter, warrior? Need help fighting your own fights?





Sagev: Why do a job that a simple droid can do?





CLASH!





Sagev: AAAHHH!

CLASH!

Anakin Skywalker: Hey……






SLASH!





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Nice trick. How about turning the odds in our favor?

Anakin Skywalker: No!






Anakin Skywalker: He’s mine! Besides…I had everything under control, Master.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Of course you did, Anakin.






Sagev: Do not think that you have the advantage just because there are two of you!

CLASH!






Anakin Skywalker: I said he’s mine!!!

SLASH!






Sagev: You’re too slow, boy!





HEADBUTT!

Anakin Skywalker: Uuughhfff…






Sagev: Perhaps the Jedi are not as powerful as Count Dooku thought.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Do not think you have won just because you defeated Anakin so easily.





CLASH!





Sagev: You, Jedi, depend on your light sword too much.

WHACK!






Anakin Skywalker: NOOOO!!! I said……HE’S MINE!!!

FORCE PUSH!






Sagev: Clever move, boy. But your friend won’t save you this time.





Magna Guard receiver: (Droid Transmission:) bbbzzzzzzz……all available units report to the barracks……bbbzzzzzzzzz……units report to the Barracks——bbzzzzzzzzzz.





Sagev: Sorry, boy. Can’t play anymore. I’m needed elsewhere.

Anakin Skywalker: I’m not done with you……






Sagev: Not to worry……I’ll leave some friends behind. Droidekas……ATTACK!





LASER BLASTS!
