Hi, I am trying to clear up a nagging memory that's been bothering me for several years. I've searched online with little success, mostly because I get really mixed and unrelated results. I am hoping the experts on here might be familiar with what I've seen. A long time before Revenge of the Sith came out (I'm guessing more than 5) I came across a text file online that was purported to be an original draft of a Star Wars prequel. I can't remember the title but it was "By George Lucas" and dated from the 1970s. Needless to say I was really skeptical of its authenticity. One of the scenes depicted in this script was the rescue of the Emperor (or Chancellor) who had arranged to have himself taken hostage as part of a ruse to manipulate Vader (I can't recall if he was referred to as Vader, Starkiller, or Skywalker) to join his cause. And Vader was a rival to another apprentice (Prince Valorum perhaps) who he ended up killing to prove himself. Anyway, I thought what I was reading was an interesting piece of fan fiction. I then promptly forgot about it until Revenge of the Sith came out, years later. And to my stunned surprise, the opening rescue sequence of that film was uncannily similar to the rescue depicted in that script I'd read years earlier. Far too similar to have been a coincidence, especially given how many years I'd read it before RotS came out. Ever since then I've tried to find the script online and have had no luck. It's one of those little things that has always bugged me. Has anyone else ever seen this or does it sound familiar?
