    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?.

    STAR WARS

    EPISODE VII
    Dawn of a new era

    OPENING SCROLL

    Despite the death of Emperor Palpatine at the battle of Endor, the Empire remains a powerful threat. With no one to lead them, Palpatine?s most loyal followers have become the ?Imperial Reconstruction Alliance.? Lead by Mara Jade, a powerful young Sith who was Palpatine?s most trusted subject, the Alliance has launched many attacks on the New Republic.

    In charge of restoring peace in these troubled times is Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. His band of Rebels won the day over Endor, and gave hope to those of the galaxy who had none. He has formed the New Jedi Order, which has been charged with keeping the peace in every star system that they have taken back from the oppressive Empire.

    Meanwhile, General Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, are headed to the planet Corellia, to help the peoples of that planet in their fight for freedom against the Imperial Reformists??.

    EXT:SPACE

    A familiar ship flies overhead towards a little blue planet, Corellia. The Millenium Falcon soars foward, followed by several fighter craft. Various different aliens fill the cockpits as they all look towards their soon to be battlefield. Star Destroyers are seen in the distance, surrounding the planet. As the group comes closer, small blasts can be seen as fighting as TIE fighters and Corellian Starfighters start to engage

    (Over com-link)

    HAN SOLO: All groups report in!

    WEDGE ANTILLES: Green Leader reporting!

    An X-wing is seen flying up next to the Falcon. Han looks to his right out the window. He glances at Wedge, and they share a nod. Han then looks at Leia. He gives her a small grin

    INT: MILLENIUM FALCON COCKPIT

    HAN: This should be fun...

    EXT:SPACE

    As all the ships report in the fight begins! Right off the bat, several ships are shot right out of the sky. New Republic and TIEs alike! Han dodges several shots, before the whole ship rattles as they are hit!

    INT:MILLENIUM FALCON COCKPIT

    HAN: (frustrated) Here! Take the controls!

    LEIA ORGANA: But I don't-

    HAN: Just take em'!!

    Han jumps out of his seat, heading back towards the quad guns. Leia leaps up, and takes Han's place. She looks around at the controls. Confusion is on her face

    (over com-link)

    CHEWBACCA: * Howl*

    A quick smile escapes Leia, and she talks into the com-link

    LEIA: You got our back Chewie?

    CHEWBACCA: *Howl, grunt*

    EXT:SPACE

    Flying around the Falcon is a small Wookie fighter, looking very similar to a F-15 jet, with engines on the end of the wings, instead of the body. Leia's face quickly turns from smile to frown, as the ship rattles once more. Lights begin to flash, and alarms go off

    INT:MILLENIUM FALCON COCKPIT

    LEIA: HAN! I don't know how to fly this garbage!!

    (From a distance)

    HAN: Just hang in there!

    EXT:SPACE

    All around, TIEs are being shot out of the sky. A Star Destroyer is being attacked by Y-Wing fighters. It looks as though the ship is exploding from the inside. It then blows up, and an enormous mushroom cloud comes out of the ship, as debris flies, knocking the wings off some TIEs, and blowing up several Republic fighters

    INT:MILLENIUM FALCON COCKPIT

    Han runs back in

    HAN: Here, here! I got it...

    Han sits down as Leia gets out of his way. He takes the controls and heads straight for a Star Destroyer

    LEIA: Han! What are you doing???

    HAN: Trust me on this one! We've done this before!

    LEIA: Well I haven't been along for one of these!

    HAN: (Into com-link) Green squadron! Follow me! This should catch them by surprise!

    (com-link)

    WEDGE: Yes sir!

    CHEWBACCA: *Roar*

    NODLE: Heading in with you.

    EXT:SPACE

    The small group of different unique starfighters screams towards the Star Destroyer. Anti-air fire is shooting left and right, but only a few ships are knocked out

    INT:MILLENIUM FALCON COCKPIT

    HAN: How we all doing out there??

    As they get close

    The camera PANs down to the end of a forest. There is a large clearing, and a base sitting right in the middle. Several AT-AT's guard the area, and there are stormtrooper divitions marching towards a landed star destroyer. Many more Star Destroyers hover over the area. TIEs zoom by as they go out on patrols. We then CUT to the Bothans and Wedge. They are all crouching down around some trees in the shadows. They watch the mass force movement.

    Wedge: We knew it. They're re-grouping. Just as we thought.

    Oment: Yeah, it's a good thing we haven't been caught. We seem to be somewhat outnumbered.

    :: They all share a small chuckle::

    Nerm: Hold on, let me get this here.

    :: He pulls out a small holo-recorder, and points it at the scene. He holds down for a moment, and then places it back in his pocket::

    Nerm: Alright then, we're done.

    Wedge: [looking in binoculars] Wait!

    Oment: What this time?

    Wedge: I think I see something. Yeah, coming out of the base. It's- it's...prisoners!

    Nerm: great kid, comeon. We have to get out of here.

    Wedge: Hold on now, I want to see who they've got...Jontraum...Haventreich...and..what? That can't be possible!

    Nerm: Who?

    Wedge: Chewbacca! Lt. Chewbacca! Great, they're alive!

    Oment: Yeah great, let's go. There can be a rescue mission later...

    Wedge: They might not still be alive!

    Nerm: That's too bad, but in case you didn't notice...we're a tid-bit out numbered here.

    Wedge: There's got to be a way.

    Nerm: Sorry kid, it's not going to work...

    ::The 2 Bothans begin to walk away quickly, and Wedge is slow to get up. He turns and looks one last time before he walks away::
    ---------------------------------------------
    ::We then CUT to the 3 walking back to the ship. They get close, and Wedge is obviously upset::

    Oment: Comeon. Time to go.

    :: The 2 Bothans get on the ship, and Wedge stops, then turns around::

    Nerm: [from loading ramp] Where are you going???

    Wedge: I'm not leaving them without a fight!

    Nerm: You think you have a chance??? Against the remaining Imperial army???

    Wedge: I've gotta' try!


    :: The scene comes up, PANing over Courasant. It then CUT's to the interior of a military base. Jade is standing all alone, looking at battle plans. She watches th different holo-grams show bases of the I.R. She walks up to a large computer. It has 3 large screens, many keyboards, and several holo-gram projectors. She sits down at the chair, reaches into her pouch on the bck of her belt, and pulls out a disk. She then places the disk in the computer, and plays with the controls. Many files are placed from the computer to the disk right away. Files apon files are put into the disk. Jade has a small grin on her face. Just then, the door behind her opens::

    Voice: What do you think you're doing?

    ::Jade jumps, and turns around quickly. Before she sees who it is, she says::

    Jade: I was jus-...Bah. It's you. Don't scare me like that you fool.

    :: She now sees that it is Toon. He stands before her with a smile on his face. The long robe he wears drags on the floor, and he walks into the room. The door behind him slides shut::

    Toon: If I didn't know better, I would think you're up to no good. [He smiles] Now what would make me think that.

    Jade: [chuckles to herself] Oh I have no idea. How are things going on your end of the deal?

    Toon: Oh yes, the deal...Solo is breaking. He will soon be ready for your part.

    Jade: Good, good. Soon he'll be one of us. Losing his friends and being betrayed by the Republic will cause him to want their destruction.

    Toon: This will all work as planned. And when it's all done, we will rule the galaxy! The two of us!

    Jade: [hiding somthing] Yes. Yes we will. Just as Palpitine would have wanted...

    :: The 2 share a grin. Jade then walks up to the computer, and pulls the disk out::

    Jade: These are their attack plans for the near future. It seems that they want to finish the job they attempted to do at the last death star. Destroy the Empire...bu

    We pan down over Pheodian. The fighters fly overhead the camera to fly above the tree tops. It is night time, and the interiors of the cockpits are lit up.

    INT, Luke?s fighter

    Luke: Alright everyone. We?re not too far from the signal. Be ready for anything!

    Ryth: ( over com-link) Yes sir!

    The others come over the com-link with "Alright" and "Roger" from the other pilots. They begin to near the signal, and The fighters are all seen flying directly towards a small, faint light coming from the forest floor. As they get closer, and fly overhead, they all notice that it is a fire, and there are several figures sitting around it.

    INT, Luke?s fighter

    Luke: There they are. Just where the signal was. Not sure who they are yet, but it?s defiantly a Republic signal. No signs of near Imperials around. Land over there, in the clearing about 500 yards from their camp!

    More "Rogers" come over the com-link, and then all the fighters, and the one transport are seen landing in the clearing. Luke lands first, and as the rest are landing, he is already out of his figthter, and on the ground with lightsaber drawn.

    Luke: I have a bad feeling about this.

    Ryth comes up behind him.

    Ryth: You sense it also?

    Luke: Yeah?be careful. We don?t want this to become a suicide stop.

    Ryth: Got?cha.

    Luke and Ryth begin to walk towards the forest, followed by Ban and Corran.

    Luke: We planned on leaving some behind to take care of the ship, right?

    Corran: We did, but is that so wise?

    Luke: It?s best. You and Ban stay here with the transport. Ryth and I will not be long.

    Corran nods to Luke, and then Ryth and Luke head into the dark forest.

    We cut to the camp of the Republic troops in the forest. Oment sits at the controls of the radio.

    Oment: Well, there are Republic troops here. Let?s just hope they can-

    Just then, there is some crackling in the woods behind them. The troops, Chewbacca, Oment, and Nerm all sit up. They all draw their weapons, and point towards the noise, trembling. As soon as they look up, there come 2 familiar Jedi, out of the forest.

    Ryth: Bothans! I?ve always heard about them, but never seen one!

    Luke: Chewbacca! You?re alive!

    Chewbacca: Roaaar!!

    Luke: Was there a mission sent here?

    Nerm: Spy mission turned wrong! We?re sure glad to see you!

    Luke: Well is this everyone?

    Oment: No. Wedge went off into the forest. We haven?t seen him for a while now. We were beginning to worry, then we saw your signal.

    Luke: I knew this couldn?t be good. There?s an Imperial base that way isn?t there?

    Nerm: Yeah. Same way Wedge stormed off?

    Luke: Alright. Well, all of you need to get to the transport and off the planet. Ryth and I will take care of this.

    Omemt: Sir? In all due respect, I am the reason he?s out there. I request to help you.

    Nerm: I am just as responsible. Allow me too.

    Chewbacca: Rooaaaar!!!

    Luke: Saved you? Well. I suppose we can accept your help. We need to get ready back where we are landed. We can get weapons for this. We?ll also send out a signal to the Republic about the position of this last Imperial Base.

    Oment: Last major one. There still is the Imperial fleet.

    Luke: But this would deliver a moral blow. Let?s go.

    Nerm: Sounds good.

    Chewbacca: Roaaaaaaaaar! Grunt grunt.

    Luke and the group run through the forest, and out of the woods towards a small camp of fighters. Ban and Corran lean against a fighter, talking. When they see the group come out of the woods, a smile comes across their faces. They walk up to the group that is at a jog coming towards them.

    Corran: Hey! You found them!

    Luke: [shaking his head] This isn?t all of them. Commander Anitllies is still out there. We?re going after him.

    Corran: [Following Luke as he and the group walk towards the transport for weapons.] Who is?

    Luke: Well, we all are so far. You?re welcome to join us!

    Corran: [distressed] Sir, I don?t think this is right! We weren?t even planning on coming down here! Now we?re going out o

    We pan over Pheodian. Star Destroyers are seen cruising towards the planet, escorted by hundreds of TIE fighters. The camera pans to Mara's fighter over the forest of the planet, also followed by the same massive group. She begins to land her fighter near the base of the Imperial Reformists. Star Destroyers are seen landing in the backround on huge landing pads. Troops are seen marching all around. Mara climbs out of her fighter, and walks to the main door of the base. The door opens and Thrawn meets her there.

    Thrawn: We have to evacuate now! The Republic will be sending all they have to this spot now that they have information that the transport has obtained!

    Mara: They carry the information of this location don't they?

    Thrawn: Yes! We have no choice but to leave now. [angered] You're sure that the Vong will bring the transports to help with what our Star Destroyers cannot get??

    Mara: Like I said before, I have Toon wrapped around my finger. They will come...

    Thrawn: You said at one point that you had Solo wrapped around your finger. He's been feeding you information up till now, but what about the future?

    Mara: He hasn't given as much as planned, and he also won't be giving much in the future. He's been quite resilient. He also has another woman holding him back. Our plan for getting information through him has failed.

    Thrawn: [angery] Blast. If they figure you out that you've been giving the information to us-

    Mara: They won't. I guarantee it.

    Thrawn: They had better not, or it will be your head they take!!

    Mara: I know. Have we put out the call for the evacuation?

    Thrawn: No. We'll do that this moment.

    The two walk into the base followed by for Storm Troopers. The camera pans off the planet and swoops into space over Courasant. The Republics battered fleet flies towards the Republic Military base.

    INT, Han's fighter

    Han: There's been a mole. They knew we were coming.

    Luke: [over com-link] Who would have told them? Who could it be?

    Han: I don't know. [realizes it could be Mara, stays silent] I have no idea...
    Luke: [over com-link] We'll figure it out. They will be brought to justice.

    Han: Yeah...Good....

    INT, Military Base

    The fleet is seen landing in the base. Pilots climb out of their ships and go strait for the control room. Luke meets up with Han

    Luke: Such a small group that came back. So many lost...

    Han: Yeah...

    Just then, Chewbacca comes up

    Han: Chewy! What happened to you??

    Chewbacca: *Ruawww Grunt Grunt*

    Han: Captured?

    Chewbacca: *Roaaar grunt rawww*

    Han: Saved by Wedge? Then where is he?

    Chewbacca: *Waaaaahh*

    Han: [stunned] Bahhh. Jeez.

    Chewbacca: *Rauuuw rum grunt*

    Han: Yeah, let's get to the control room.

    Ryth, Ban, and Corran walk up to Luke, and they share a few words in the backround as Han and Chewbacca walk towards the control room.

    The camera cuts into the control room. There is a large gathering around a large projector (similar to Return of the Jedi) where several commanders stand talking. Han and Chewbacca cut their way to the front of the group. Leia runs up to Chewbacca, hugs him, and then begins to speak with him. Luke, Ryth, Corran, and Ban also cut into the front. Nerm and Oment already are there, conversing with Admiral Ackbar. Mon Mothma steps to the front of the group so everyone can see her.

    Mon Mothma: We now know what the former Empire is capable of, and where their base is located. If we are to rid the galaxy of them forever, now is the time. This is Nerm of the Bothan spy net...
    Nerm: We know that the Imperial?s last base is on the planet Pheodian. They are well armed there, and they are highly dangerous. We cannot take this attack lightly.

    Mon Mothma: We?re going to attack this base, and rid the galaxy of them forever.

    Han: What would we do? Our fleet has been seriously depleted because of this ambush they just pulled.

    Ackbar: We?ll be calling on all troops of every available race to come. My race, the Mon Calamari will be joining

    Hallo Everyone,

    *whistle* That was a job. I'm so thankful for those who posted updates every once in a while. That saved me a good 20 min. Well. There you have it. The whole story. Right now, I'm working on a final copy, and the few final copies for those who requested personal copies. Episode VIII is just getting started, and my co-writers will be updated on the plans soon. Thank you all for reading, this has been quite a trip. Hope you'll all join me for Episode VIII!

    that's different. You can put it in your sig... but you can't add something like: Go there or anything else that directly invites someone to go.

    Also it's a bad idea to post it in your messages. They don't really like that.
