I must admit I'm a little lost about what's going on at the moment, I get the main lines but miss many and fine details because I can't quite remember what has happened. Also, while I enjoy your understated style - it doesn't help my weak memory...

Across the distance, she felt it... a presence that wasn't only wrong, but impossible. Familiar, yes, but... very wrong. "That can't be." "It isn't," Mara said from behind her. "At least, I don't think it is. That's impossible." "Would you stop that?" Han complained suddenly from behind Mara, who turned to stare at him with wide eyes. "Then again... what is it?" "Don't want to say," Mara told him tightly. Then her eyes went distant and she smiled. "But it's safe to say that Luke's as close to fine as we can hope for." "Good." Focus on the task, huh, Han? Let's hope Palpatine's clone was a minor distraction! It was eight days, right? Funny how eight days can stretch into eight weeks, then. Stay where you are, we'll be down to collect you, shortly. Not too long after that, Han, Leia, Mara, Roganda, Wedge, Darvis, Ailee, and Wes, armed to the teeth, clambered in with unnecessary noise and confusion, and Quest was arrested... again. It helped that he was already in binders And boy, does Luke and Mara have some talking to do!
