    INTERIOR: LUKE'S X-WING -- COCKPIT

    Luke sees the cloud race by as he takes his craft closer
    to the planet. He must operate his controls carefully since
    the cloud cover has completely obscured his vision. An alarm
    buzzes in the background, Artoo beeps and whistles
    frantically.

    LUKE: (into comlink) I know, I know! All the scopes are dead. I can't
    see a thing! Just hang on, I'm going to start the landing cycle...

    The blast of the retrorockets is deafening, drowning out
    Artoo's electronic squeals. Suddenly, there is a cracking
    sound as if limbs were being broken off trees and then a
    tremendous jolt as the spacecraft stops. Luke pulls a switch
    and his canopy pops open.

    EXTERIOR: DAGOBAH -- DUSK

    The mist-shrouded X-wing fighter is almost invisible in the
    thick fog. Luke climbs out onto the long nose of the
    spacecraft as Artoo pops out of his cubbyhole on the back. The
    young warrior surveys the fog, which is barely pierced by the
    ship's landing lights. About all he can make out are some
    giant, twisted trees nearby. Artoo whistles anxiously.

    LUKE: No, Artoo, you stay put. I'll have a look around.

    Artoo lets out a short beep. As Luke moves along the nose,
    Artoo loses his balance and disappears with a splash into the
    boggy lake.

    LUKE: Artoo?

    Luke kneels and leans over the plane looking for Artoo, but
    the water is still and reveals no sign of the little droid.

    LUKE: Artoo! Where are you?

    A small periscope breaks the surface of the water and a
    gurgly beep is heard. The periscope starts to move to shore.
    Relieved, Luke starts running along the nose of the fighter to
    its tip.

    LUKE: Artoo! You be more careful.

    The outline of the shore is now more than ten feet away.
    Luke jumps off the plane into the water, scrambles up to the
    shore, and turns to look for Artoo. The periscope still
    steadily moves toward shore.

    LUKE: Artoo -- that way!

    Suddenly, through the thick fog layer, a dark shape
    appears, moving toward the little droid. The dark, sinuous bog
    beast dives beneath the swampy water, making a loud clunk
    against Artoo's metal hull. The droid disappears from sight,
    uttering a pathetic electronic scream.
    Holding his ignited lightsaber before him, Luke wades a few
    feet into the murky pool, looking for any sign of his little
    friend.

    LUKE: Artoo!

    The black surface is still as death itself...until a few
    bubbles begin to appear. Then, phheewaat!! The runt-size robot
    is spit out of the water, makes a graceful arc, and comes
    crashing down into a patch of soft gray moss.

    LUKE: Oh, no! Are you all right? Come on. You're lucky you don't taste
    very good. Anything broken?

    Luke helps Artoo to his feet and begins wiping the mud and
    roots from his round metal body. Artoo responds with feeble,
    soggy beeps.

    LUKE: If you're saying coming here was a bad idea, I'm beginning to
    agree with you. Oh, Artoo, what are we doing here? It's like...
    something out of a dream, or, I don't know. Maybe I'm just going
    crazy.

    As Luke glances around at the spooky swamp jungle that
    surrounds him, Artoo ejects a stream of muddy water from one
    of his cranial ports.

    EXTERIOR: VADER'S STAR DESTROYER -- VADER'S CHAMBER

    Admiral Piett hesitates in the entryway to Vader's private
    cubicle. After a moment, he steps into the room and pauses at
    the surprising sight before him.
    Darth Vader, his back turned, is silhouetted in the gloom
    on the far side of the chamber. A black, insectlike droid
    attends him. Among the various apparatuses surrounding them, a
    respirator tube now retracts from Vader's uncovered head. The
    head is bald with a mass of ugly scar tissue covering it. The
    black droid then lowers the mask and helmet onto Vader's head.
    When it is in place, the Dark Lord turns to face Piett.

    VADER: Yes, Admiral?

    PIETT: Our ships have sighted the Millennium Falcon, lord. But...it
    has entered an asteroid field and we cannot risk...

    VADER: (interrupting) Asteroids do not concern me, Admiral. I want
    that ship and not excuses.

    EXTERIOR: ASTEROID CAVE -- MILLENNIUM FALCON

    The pirate starship rests in a dark, dripping asteroid
    cave. It is so dark that the cave's exact dimensions are
    impossible to determine.

    INTERIOR: MILLENNIUM FALCON -- COCKPIT

    Han and Chewie busily shut down the engine and all
    electronic systems. Threepio and Leia watch worriedly.

    HAN: I'm going to shut down everything but the emergency power
    systems.

    THREEPIO: Sir, I'm almost afraid to ask, but...does that include
    shutting me down, too?

    Chewie barks "yes". But Han thinks otherwise.

    HAN: No, I need you to talk to the Falcon, find out what's wrong with
    the hyperdrive.

    Suddenly, the ship lurches, causing all the loose items in
    the cockpit to go flying. Chewie howls.

    THREEPIO: Sir, it's quite possible this asteroid is not entirely
    stable.

    HAN: Not entirely stable? I'm glad you're here to tell us these
    things. Chewie, take the professor in the back and plug him into the
    hyperdrive.

    THREEPIO: Oh! Sometimes I just don't understand human behavior. After
    all, I'm only trying to do my job in the most...

    The sliding door closes behind the indignant Threepio as
    Chewie and he move back to the hold. Suddenly, the ship
    lurches again, throwing Leia across the cabin into Han's arms.
    Then, abruptly, the motion stops as suddenly as it started.
    With some surprise, Han and Leia realize they are in each
    other's arms.

    LEIA: Let go, please.

    Leia flushes, averting her eyes. She's not exactly fighting
    to get free. But, of course, Han blows it...

    HAN: Don't get excited.

    The anger rises in Leia.
