DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 45



As Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker race to the Barracks, their path is continually disrupted by Battle Droids.


    



Anakin Skywalker: Have you heard back from that trooper on the bike, Master?

Slash!



    



Obi-Wan Kenobi: Not since his last report about sighting the mysterious warrior.

Slash!






Anakin Skywalker: He mentioned something about a generator. Why would an abandoned planet need a generator?

Slash!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: It wouldn’t……but a Droid Army would. There has to be a local generator that powers all these battle droids.

Slash!






Anakin Skywalker: And that power generator wouldn’t be defended by just any battle droid. I’d bet the Droid Commander is there along with…

Slash!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: DOOKU!

Slash!






As a secondary line of battle droids surrounds the Clones, Commander Cody makes one final stop before heading towards the Barracks.

Commander Cody: Last one…






Battle Droid 281Z: Clone trooper! HALT!

The Rancor: ROOOAARRR!






The Rancor tramples the battle droids and turrets while continuing the pursuit of Commander Cody.

CRASH!






Obi-Wan Kenobi over private comlink: Commander Cody . redirect your target to Kyde’s last known coordinates. That is the more critical attack point!

Commander Cody on internal comlink: As you wish, General. Come in, Agal — get everyone into defensive positions! Now!






Commander Cody on comlink: …repeat……take cover……NOW!





Clone Trooper Agal: Everyone down! Commander’s orders!





Clone Trooper Agal: Stay alert, men……we may need to get out of here real fast.





Commander Cody: This is my stop.





The abandoned BARC crashes into several battle droids.





Angered by the long pursuit of Commander Cody, the Rancor then redirects its anger towards the countless battle droids.





CRASH!





Battle Droid Z145: Open fire!





The Rancor: RRRROOOOOAAAAARRRRR!

CRUNCH!






Battle Droid Z145: Unknown creat—PPPPFFZZZZTTTTT…





Clone Troopers: YEEAAHHH! Smash ’em all!





Battle Droid S789: RUN!





The Rancor: RRROOOOAAARRRR!





CRUNCH!





Angered by the droids constant laser fire, the Rancor increases the ferocity of its attack.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Looks like your plan is working, Anakin.

Anakin Skywalker: I knew it would, Master.

Commander Cody: Pardon me for asking, General, but……what target is more important than the Barracks?






Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Droid Power Generator. We’re outnumbered, but if we can neutralize all the battle droids at once, then that becomes the critical attack point.

Battle Droid R431A: RUN!






The Rancor’s attacks take it away from the Barracks……and towards the Power Generator.

Battle Droid V537: Unknown creature approaching.






Droid Commander OOM-12: Unknown creature? Unknown creature……that does not compute.

Count Dooku: It’s the Jedi.






Count Dooku: Defend the generator at all costs, Commander. I’ll handle the Jedi.

Droid Commander OOM-12 Yes, sir.






The Rancor: RRROOOAAARR!!!

Clone Trooper Fraz: YEA!!






Commander Cody over internal comlink: Pry, Fraz — get out of there now! The Rancor is going to see you —

Anakin Skywalker: Too late!






The Rancor: RRROOOOARRRRRR!!!

Clone Trooper Pry: Let’s go! Double-time!!!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: Look! Over there! Count Dooku! He’s escaping!





Obi-Wan Kenobi: I’m going to need to borrow your bike, Cody. Anakin, follow me to—





Anakin Skywalker: I’ll handle the Rancor. Get to the generator as fast as you can!

Commander Cody: Yes, sir!






Clone Trooper Pry: Aaahhh!

Clone Trooper Fraz: It’s got my leg!!!






Anakin Skywalker: I’ll get them back. Just be ready at the generator.





Commander Cody: Consider it done.





The Rancor: RRRROOOOOAARRRRR!

Anakin Skywalker: This is where the fun begins.






Clone Trooper Pry: Aaahhhh!!!





Anakin Skywalker: You’re lucky we have bigger plans for you…otherwise……





Anakin Skywalker: ……I’d take more than your toenail!

SLASH!






The Rancor: RRRROOOOOOOAAAAARRRR!!!!!





Anakin Skywalker: Run for it!





Anakin Skywalker: Probably not one of my best ideas…

The Rancor: RRRROOOAAAARRRR!






Droid Commander OOM-12: Unknown creature approaching! Unknown creature approaching!!! Open fire!!! Open fire!!!





The Rancor: RRRROOOOAAAARRRRRR!!!

SLASH!






Droid Commander OOM-12: Jedi?!

Anakin Skywalker: Droid Commander, I presume?






Droid Commander OOM-12: ERROR! ERROR! Too many variables to compute—

SLASH!






Commander Cody: Good work, General. I’ll take it from here…





The Rancor: RRRROOOOAAAARRRR!!!





Commander Cody: You want me? Come and get me!





The Rancor: RRROOOOAARRR!

Commmander Cody: That’s it……just a little more……






After a continuous onslaught, the power generator begins to topple under the weight of the Rancor.





Commander Cody: Time to go!





As the power generator collapses, an explosion erupts from the base of the tower.





Then suddenly……………silence.









Clone Trooper Fraz: Is it……dead?

Clone Trooper Pry: I’ll make sure.






Anakin Skywalker: STOP! There has been enough death today.





Commander Cody: The General is right. Verify the droids have been deactivated.

Clone Trooper Pry: Yes, sir!






Anakin Skywalker: And I want to see the corpse of that mystery warrior.

Commander Cody: Yes, General.






Anakin Skywalker: Has anyone seen Obi-Wan?
