    Win!

    I can see him plugged into a terminal on a Separatist ship waiting for Anakin to call and tell him what to do. Nothing happens for a while, so he starts whistling... a few quick dissolves show the things he gets up to over the next few boring hours..: playing Tetris, picking up dismembered battle droid heads with his appendages and doing "Hamlet", checking out the centerfold in "Playdroid", spinning his dome around to make himself dizzy...

    Title: Anakin and the Younglings

    Episode Brief: A ship carrying a group of Jedi younglings and their teacher has been attacked and forced to crash land on an uncharted planet. Dispatched to recover the survivors of the downed ship, Anakin Skywalker and his Apprentice Ahsoka Tano soon learn that the youngling?s instructor has been killed and a number of her charges abducted into the stone forests, giant, densely grouped columns of granite that seem to cover almost the entire surface of the globe, and within which lurk all manner of feral creatures. Anakin and Ahsoka must now protect the remaining children while attempting to round-up, or indeed rescue, their missing fellows.

    Intent:: This could be a fun sort of action adventure romp, but with a little sprinkling of that old haunted wood, Hansel and Gretel idea. Furthermore it?s a nice opportunity for a little comedy and banter between Anakin and Ahsoka as they seek to wrangle the younglings. It?s also hard to divorce ourselves from what Anakin will later do during ROTS, which should, without making any oblique nods toward it, add a little tinge of darkness to the whole affair.

    I like this idea as well.

    If they want to channel the spirit of EP 4 while creating something new then this is how they could do it. It'd be a great homage.

    Okay, just got back from Disneyland and concocted this one with the help of the kids. It's silly.

    Title: Clone Tours

    Fortune Cookie: A great name does not make a great warrior.

    Synopsis: Ordered to get some R&R after intense fighting, Captain Rex boards a Star Tours starspeeder for a relaxing visit to Kamino. When the starspeeder unexpectedly encounters a comet, Rex is knocked unconscious by the turbulence. Republic forces attempt to contact Rex aboard the starspeeder, but their communications are mistakenly directed to the droid pilot, whose name is, bizarrely, also Captain Rex. Thinking he has been entrusted with a top secret mission, the droid Rex diverts his course to confront and destroy the already-completed Death Star, thus putting its construction some 20 years behind schedule. Clone Captain Rex wakes up in a med station on Kamino, with no idea why he now has a giant medal for valor pinned on his armor and has been promoted to admiral.

    Elsewhere, Jar Jar attempts to do his laundry and accidentally captures Dooku, while C-3PO and Greivous switch legs, just for grins.

    This trumps anything I'll ever come up with. Seriously. [face_laugh]

    If they are ever stupid enough to have a 'let the fans write one episode' contest, THAT should be the winner! :D

    As I doubt most of you have the time to write up full episode guides for your ideas, all that is required from now on are the title and brief summary. ;)

    Title: The Fields of Death

    Jedi Fortune Cookie: One must never give up hope, for it is sometimes all we have.

    Synopsis:
    A loosing battle against Sepratist Forces on the outer rim world of Felucia makes Anakin start to experience flashbacks of the worst defeat the Republic had suffered in a 1000 years-the Battle of Jabiim. It had been before he was Knighted, when he was a Padawan...one of many who had lost their masters in the Disastorous battle-the Padawan Pack.

    Title: ???

    Summary: Basically an episode about Separatist volunteer forces. They are mentioned briefly in the Ep. III cross section book, and it'd be nice to see organic soldiers for the CIS.

    Title: Life or Life (I don't think the youngers ones would understand this)

    Summary: On some planet that joined the CIS before the war, the Republic is winning the battle. A Separatist Admiral must make the decision to save himself and his fleet (Volunteer forces, as mentioned above?), or go on a suicide run to buy the civilian evacuation more time to get as many people of the planet as they can. Of course, because the Republic are the good guys, they probably wouldn't do anything to the civilians, but maybe it could be the Empire. Palpy sure does like to have aliens hated.

    I just think they should show that the enemy of the Jedi and clones aren't just droids. There are people too.

    If they do a Seperatist themed episode, it would be awesome to have it begin with its own Newsreel. Instead of Tom Kane as a WWII correspondent, have him doing a "noble" Neimoidian accent, discussing our "heroic, techically advanced droid armies," "passionate leaders Count Dooku and General Grievous," and "villainous Jedi."

    Everyone's been wanting to see from the Seperatist perspective. If its done, make it a complete change in tone from the regular shows, so that the audience is thrown from their comfort.

    It would be like the Buffy episode "Superstar," where the Jonathan character has creeped his way into several shots of the opening credits.

    Well, flashing back to Jabiim doesn't sound like a bad idea. Seems a little vague, and ideas that are likely to illicit responses are the ones that are novelties or humorous. Order 65 I especially liked. XD

    Anyhoo...

    Title: The Kit, Saesee, Agen and Plo Power Half Hour!
    Episode Brief: Kit, Saesee, Agen and Plo are determined to have lunch on a planet they're leading troops on, but they have to fight their way through bounty hunters, anti-Republic extremists, and Separatist droids. As they search for a place with the right menu and facilities while disabling their opponents, their personalities bounce off each other. In the end, they discover that, tragically, Plo can't join them because of his mask, and Mace gives them all a mission just as they start to settle down.

    Title: There's one, set for stun
    Episode Brief: A clone scout engaged in urban warfare has important intel that must reach his Jedi General, but each time he sees his general, stun blasters somehow manage to hit him and each time that happens he falls down in such a way that he's hidden completely. This process goes on a few times until by the time he gives his General the news, the battle is already over.

    These, I like...and it may have Ahsoka questioning her allegiances, or she'll just kill her parents by being so annoying and they drink poison or something to end the misery and Ahsoka rejoins her comrades and tries to strike up conversations about her family reunion so she can alleviate her guilt but Anakin rebuffs her so he doesn't have to discuss his(some emotional nuance about attactment here.)

    And of course: General Grievous, Kalee and Kaleesh...can't go wrong.:D Unless of course the Kaleesh ask some very direct questions, such as how has his sex life been lately.:p

    Here's one I felt pays tribute (and mocks at the same time) three of the more well known perspectives on this board, interpreting them as contrasting viewpoints in A GALAXY DIVIDED! If anybody would like to read it in FULL, I could try working on that either here or in a PM. XD

    Title: Holonet News Network
    Episode Brief: Holonet News Network, aiming to produce a debate to give differing points of view fair coverage, invite three of the leading proponents of the current views on the war to tell their stories. Little do they know what's in store for them...
    Jedi Fortune Cookie: Freedom of belief is the right of all sentient beings.

    Newsreel: We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to bring you a special Holonet broadcast, personally sponsored by Senators PADME AMIDALA, GARM BEL IBLIS, BAIL ORGANA, MON MOTHMA, and SUPREME CHANCELLOR PALPATINE. Join us on HOLONET NEWS NETWORK as a panel of three specially chosen and highly qualified individuals, FRESH FROM THE OUTER RIM SIEGES, are brought in to discuss the issue of THE CLONE WARS!

    Synopsis: Holonet News Network hosts a three part interview and open discussion forum, inviting three prominent voices in the Senate. Kel Dorian reporter Kon Fan, Duros senator Grywry Wrathsarth, and the extremely conservative and outspoken Bothan journalist Deebray Nahn'thris. After being greeted by Caamasi newscaster Garf Ma'uhl and his droid assistant QS-2T ('jokingly' referred to by Garf and Kon as Tootee), the trio are invited to give their views in brief. After a short introduction on their backstories and views (Deebray stopped from going into a speech by Garf before his turn), they get to business.

    ((Various interjections and brief arguments removed. XD))
    The young but friendly Kon Fan gives his two cents, that although the war is dreadful, the Jedi and clones are to be commended for their services and efforts. He believes the clones, although bred for war, have grown to be living breathing beings and should be valued as such, while the Jedi, despite being thrown in a conflict unprecedented, have for the most part given it their all. Their efforts may not always be enough, but their spirits are in the right place. When asked to elaborate, Kon accesses a holovid he was able to record when at the front lines, illustrating the crucial parts of a conflict where Jedi Master Plo Koon and his troops saved the day as well as the civilians.

    Deebray is up next, and after a bit of friction (diffused by both Kon's empathic telepathy and Garf's superior Caamasi negotiation skills), presents his holovid. With COMMENTARY! What follows is a documentary of sorts, featuring select (but admittedly unaltered) clips of somewhat aggressive Jedi doing 'unusual' things, clones and their artillery destroying civilian constructs, clones conversing in Mando'a (curiously resembling German :p), and other such things. Through it all, Deebray provides his own brand of commentary, even making comments about Skywalker's new inappropriate Padawan. Grywry and even Kon question the documentary's validity, but Nahn'thris produces credentials of it winning a holojournalist award (that seems suspiciously 'Indy' and 'artsy') that Garf acknowledges as legitimate.

    Finally, Grywry gives his view. He acknowledges that the Jedi haven't always been competent or successful, citing Jabiim, Parcelus and Duro. Indeed, sometimes they show less care than they ought to, presenting occasions where the more driven, detached or aggressive ones ignore the innocents left in the wake of their battles. However, he HAS observed Jedi at their best, and says that to be fair, they were all thrust into something they didn't expect and have a hard time adapting. Despite that, the majority of Jedi do their best to maintain their peaceful natures and dedication to upholding peace and justice for all in the galaxy. The clones, too, despite unsettling him at first, have shown themselves to be as varied as the people in this interview. Some are more emotional, others more detached, and a few develop ho

    Heh, thanks, Gry. Yeah, I missed that one. It's a personal belief of mine that you offer the more objective, grounded, but ultimately hopeful viewpoint, able to analyse plotholes and weak points. I'm more of the everyday optimistic layman, and Deebray is...uh....well. XD

    Bits I would have liked to include in the episode in brief...
    -Deebray points out his new Highborn Mental Enhancer belt, crafted by Ionine industries (or his droid IO9), though Kon and Grywry mistakenly think the Bothese writings translate into Highbrow
    -Repeated shooting down of Kon's fanboyish worship of Plo Koon as a running gag
    -Grywry would have been revealed as having been on Duro, but escaped thanks to Jedi and clones, possibly Mace Windu or someone less experienced, lending to his balanced opinion on them
    -Dee Bradley Baker would have been requested to voice the clones with a distinctly mechanical German accent for Deebray's portion, and a weird amalgam between Mando'a and German would have been sought
    -Deebray claims Ahsoka wants to (censored) Anakin, prompting a scene where every character exhibits shock, the Holonet automatically censors the word, a family watching the broadcast covers the ears of their children, and Jar Jar clumsily asks Threepio what (censored) means. Sadly, despite airing the words 'damn' and 'hell', I doubt they'd allow an actual bleep. XD
    -Deebray's award winning documentary is revealed to have gained that award from the Star Wars galaxy equivalent of io9.com. Titles are still being thought of, though I'm leaning towards something long like 'The Wol Cabba***** Cognitive Production Contemporary Commentary Recognition Commendation Award for Excellence of Critique of Modern Events'
    -One character is mentioned as being nominated for Alderaan's Royal Chalcedony Shield, for peacemaking achievements. Unlikely, though, as the cast are simply opinionated people invited to talk. Garf could be a candidate. [face_peace]

    Again, thanks for reading and liking. :D

    In a fantasy dream world beyond all notions of reality, I would love to write for Star Wars. Who wouldn't? But, in a more realistic frame of mind, I'll contribute to this thread instead ;)

    Title: An Abrupt End

    Episode Brief: One of Nute Gunray's closest advisors offers to defect to the Republic in exchange for protection, promising information that could bring about the end of the war. The Jedi Council sends Jedi Generals Plo Koon and Luminara Unduli to negotiate the defection.

    Full Synopsis:

    A master of words is a master of others.

    Plo Koon and Luminara's ship approaches a planet covered in factories, refineries, etc; a real industrial powerhouse. Upon arrival Luminara complains about the huge amounts of pollution; Koon is unaffected, thanks to his mask. They meet Kule Monrat, the Neimodian who wishes to defect. As negotiations take place in a conference room overlooking a huge industrial district, Monrat assures the Jedi that he has information about traitors in the Republic, traitors that 'go right up to the highest office in the land'. This sparks the Jedi's curiosity immensely, and during an interval they contact Coruscant and discuss the implications of a possible traitor working in the Office of the Chancellor.

    Meanwhile, Asajj Ventress arrives on the planet, quickly making her way to a control room for the entire district where the negotiations are taking place; she dismantles the droids there and uploads a virus into the A.I. databank for all the droids being produced. These droids obey Ventress, and begin running amok in the factories, blasting at machinery, setting off fires and explosions, etc. Plo Koon and Luminara sense the sudden disturbance and ignite their sabers, just as Monrat runs back into the room calling for help; upon seeing the Jedi waiting for him, lightsabers ignited, he assumes that they have betrayed him and that it is them who have sabotaged the droids. He flees; Plo Koon follows him to try and correct the mistake and keep him safe, whilst Luminara goes to discover what has caused the droids to run riot.

    Plo Koon catches up with Monrat, just in time to save him from a group of droids seeking to assassinate the advisor, as per Ventress' orders. The two fall back, with Koon deflecting blaster bolts as they do so, and are eventually cornered in the conference room, barely sealing the door behind them to keep the droids out. Luminara, meanwhile, ducks and dodges her way through the factory to reach the control room. Discovering the virus that has been uploaded, she attempts to activate a shutdown of all the droids, only to have to dive away at the last second as Ventress leaps out of the shadows at her. The two square off, and exchange words referencing the last time they fought. Before they can actually begin to duel, however, Luminara uses the Force to throw pieces of the dismantled droids at Ventress, using the distraction to cover her escape as she leaps out of the window of the control room. Ventress pursues her, resulting in a chase down an entire production line of the factory.

    In the conference room, the droids begin to cut through the door, and Plo Koon readies himself to fight. Monrat proclaims that the Jedi can't protect him, then confesses that he does not actually know of any traitors in the Office of the Chancellor. Before Plo Koon can reply, the droids break through and he has to fight them off, throwing Monrat under the conference table for cover. Back in the factory, the chase ends when Luminara is able to trap Ventress in a carbonite chamber; Ventress manages to evade the full blast of the carbonite, but she is pinned from the waist down to the production line conveyor belt, heading back towards the forge. Luminara hurries back to help Koon, arriving in time to help him finish off the droids. Ventress, meanwhile, struggles to break free.

    The Jedi discuss what to do with Monrat; Luminara mentions that she believes Ventress will escape and try again, so they should leave as soon as possible. The Neimodian apologises, c

    Nope. Ever notice how there's a lot of planets with "tooine" in their name? Tatooine, Dantooine, Mantooine...Rantooine's just one I made up to add to the list. Although I probably could've picked a more unique description for the planet.:p
