    The following is a continuation of my Phantom Menace rewrite, available [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2775397&replies=107]here.[/link] If you haven't read it yet, you might want to. :D

    (And in case you're wondering, there aren't any exact spoilers here, but there are a few of the same ideas.)

    EXT. SPACE

    The OPENING CRAWL scrolls upward.

    STAR WARS
    EPISODE II: THE BLOOD OF HEROES

    Under the reign of Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic has prospered in ways few ever thought possible. Endless riches pour in from across the galaxy, and the Jedi Knights keep uncontested peace.

    But there exists another side to this prosperity, an underclass few people care to see.

    It is this class, composed of the exploited and forgotten poor, that now seeks to make itself heard, by any means necessary...

    A DECORATED BLUE WARSHIP, the LAST CHANCE, slowly roars into view.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS

    A dark room, well-furnished, with one small window.

    The only light comes from a wall-mounted HOLOSCREEN. The screen displays a recording of a Senate session, focusing on a BEARDED, GREY-HAIRED SENATOR in military dress. The senator, JENNER AGRAVAINE, addresses the stern and stoic SUPREME CHANCELLOR PALPATINE with a fierce and passionate speech.

    JENNER
    I no longer see a Senate. I see no people's government--I see a marketplace, a place to buy power and privilege!

    As he speaks, OTHER SENATORS shout him down. Palpatine raises an open hand, calling for silence.

    Across the dark room, the ship's CAPTAIN watches the holoscreen, the back of his head obscured in a dark silhouette. Onscreen, Jenner continues.

    JENNER
    We have forgotten our only purpose. It is our people's needs that bring us here. And here, blinded by luxury, too many of you have forgotten why you came!

    The holoscreen's image switches to a closeup of SENATOR AMIDALA, now 23, who looks on from her own box in silent support.

    JENNER
    I propose a fresh start. I invite those willing to join me, and construct a people's galaxy!

    The captain continues to watch, and now we see his face--he's Jenner.

    EXT. SPACE

    The Last Chance speeds toward the red world of ORRIKAN, and an orbital station above it.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    Numerous TECHS and OFFICERS man their stations as Jenner makes his entrance. Over the comm, a FEMALE OFFICER addresses them all.

    FEMALE OFFICER
    (over comm)
    Repeat, please identify yourself. Do you copy? Unidentified craft, you are entering--

    JENNER
    Open fire.

    EXT. SPACE

    The battleship's forward cannons fire on the orbital station, tearing across its unguarded hull. The Last Chance advances slowly.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    Jenner stands in front of his chair, watching the action through the bridge's bow windows.

    JENNER
    Boarding clamps.

    INT. SPACE

    Corscrew-like pipes twist from the side of the warship, boring into the station.

    INT. ORBITAL STATION - CORRIDOR

    STATION SECURITY GUARDS tromp down the hall, sparks flying from the damaged floor lights.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    Jenner takes his seat.

    JENNER
    Troops.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - CORRIDOR

    TWO DOZEN HEAVILY ARMED SOLDIERS stand at attention in the dark hallway.

    JENNER
    (over comm)
    Open your eyes.

    Each soldier adjusts a dial on the visor of his helmet.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    A holoscreen in the center of the room comes to life, depicting a collage of the soldier's helmet cameras.

    The soldiers' field commander, CYGNUS KAI, reports in.

    CYGNUS
    (over comm)
    Green Leader, standing by.

    JENNER
    Attack.

    INT. ORBITAL STATION - CORRIDOR

    The outer wall explodes and flies inward, taking several guards with it. Jenner's troops storm in and open fire, and their intense training quickly overpowers the defending side.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    Jenner watches his troops' movements on the holoscreen.

    INT. ORBITAL STATION - CARGO HOLD

    The attackers dash among the tall, stacked crates, trading shots with the opposition.

    A defender falls, and with his last breath he raises a detonator. Several crates around the room suddenly combust, launching Jenner's soldiers at random.

    INT. LAST CHANCE - BRIDGE

    Several of the soldiers' displays turn to static.

    JENNER
    Damn!

    INT. ORBITAL STATION - SEALED CORRIDOR

    FOUR DEFENDERS guard a reinforced door from behind improvised cover. As the attackers turn the corner, the guards open fire, and catch them by surprise.

    Two of Jenner's men fall dead, and a third staggers off. Almost immediately, more attackers join the battle, with Corporal Cygnus at their forefront. The defenders drop one by one.

    Cygnus removes his helmet and reveals his face; he's a 25 year old man, his expression frigidly calm. In place of his left eye, a robotic steel orb whirrs in its socket.

    INT. ORBITAL STATION - DARK ROOM

    It's pitch black--until the sparks of a cutting torch start up. The door topples inward, and Jenner's men advance, waving flashlights around the room.

    CYGNUS
    Green Leader to home base.

    His light sweeps over a cryogenic tube, which houses a MAN'S BODY.

    CYGNUS
    We found it.

    Next to the cryo-chamber is another just like it, and another after that, all across the enormous room. Each chamber holds an IDENTICAL MAN.

    EXT. CORUSCANT SPACE

    Rivers of light track across the planet's surface. SHIPS of all kinds fly in a web of traffic lanes over and around it.

    EXT. CORUSCANT - JEDI CITADEL - NIGHT

    Early evening; the sun has just gone down. The heart of the Jedi Knighthood stands above its surroundings, lights pouring out from every window.

    INT. JEDI CITADEL - ARENA - NIGHT

    A glass enclosure caps the large, parabolic stadium. Obstacles litter the central field. A CROWD sits in tense silence. At the field's far end stands SAGE DEROSS, a young woman in a red blouse and brown skirt. Staring straight ahead with intense focus, she sprints toward the first obstacle, a wall, and flips over it in a single leap.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    From a box in the stands, the JEDI COUNCIL observes her. The diminutive green sage YODA watches her actions from the room's numerous HOLOSCREENS, while his colleagues MACE WINDU, KI-ADI MUNDI and PLO KOON stand at the window.

    Off to the side, away from the others, OBI-WAN KENOBI leans against the wall. His former enthusiasm tempered by age and experience, he now wears a serious, pensive expression as he strokes his newly grown beard.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    Sage approaches a series of force fields, which switch on and off at random. Weaving back and forth, she makes her way through.

    A swarm of BLASTER ORBS floats toward her, opening fire as one. Sage unclips the lightsaber from her belt, ignites its azure blade and returns their attacks, destroying them in short order.

    The crowd cheers, then falls silent. From the other end of the field, a HOODED FIGURE steps onto the scene. Beneath the hood, we briefly glimse the face of Jedi Master ADI GALLIA.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    The Council members watch closely. Mace takes on a cautious frown.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    Adi ignites an orange-bladed lightsaber. Sage falters for a moment, then tightens her resolve and charges. The two combatants duel.

    Despite Sage's skill, however, Adi quickly outmatches her, and delivers an expert jab to the young woman's shoulder. A burst of sparks flies from the saber, knocking Sage to the ground. The crowd groans in disappointment.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    Ki-Adi-Mundi shakes his head.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    Adi removes her hood, and helps a downhearted Sage to her feet. Putting her arm around the young Padawan learner, Adi helps her off the field.

    ADI
    Next year.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    Mace steps back from the window, glancing first at Yoda, then Obi-Wan, who returns his look with an impassive expression. Checking his saber, the senior Jedi makes his exit.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    The doors on the far side of the field slide open again, this time for a HANDSOME YOUNG MAN in traditional Jedi robes. The ANNOUNCER introduces him.

    ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
    Up next... Cade Saliere!

    CADE smiles at the crowds, then goes to work.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    Obi-Wan rises from his place at the wall as Adi Gallia steps in. She smiles a greeting to everyone, which he returns in kind.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    Cade tackles every obstacle with absolute precision, and intense concentration.

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    Obi and Adi stand side by side at the window.

    OBI-WAN
    Sorry about Sage.

    ADI
    She'll be ready soon.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    Cade overcomes the last obstacle, then comes face to face with his master, Mace Windu. Cade draws a green lightsaber, while Mace ignites his own purple blade. The two square off, Cade matching his master blow for blow.

    Finally, a buzzer sounds. Both fighters step away from each other and salute. The crowd cheers for Cade; he's passed the trials.

    ANNOUNCER
    A new record, for fastest time and greatest skill! Cade Saliere!

    INT. ARENA - COUNCIL CHAMBER - NIGHT

    Obi-Wan gets ready to leave.

    ADI
    Good luck. Don't hold back on him.

    OBI-WAN
    Tell him that.

    INT. ARENA - NIGHT

    The doors open again.

    ANNOUNCER (V.O.)

    Seems like Cade and Anakin will have a bit of a rivalry going... friendly, I hope.

    I like your idea of the Jedi trials, how they decide who "moves up" and who doesn't. It would be neat to see that in Ep. 2, Attack of the Clones.

    Good stuff!!

    Very well written and entertaining.

    I found the ideas of the televised Jedi trials a little odd though. I know from my own martial arts training that while the tests are open to the public, usually only the candidates? family attends.

    But maybe the Jedi Order is strapped for cash and is selling this on Pay-Per-View! :)

    (Sorry, I must be thinking of Darth Holiday?s SITHLEMANIA)

    Keep up the great work!

    INT. JEDI CITADEL - GREAT HALL - DAY

    Anakin, Cade and FORTY OTHER JEDI KNIGHTS stand at attention. On a raised
    platform at the far end of the hall stands the ENTIRE JEDI COUNCIL, as well as
    Obi-Wan and several OTHER MASTERS not on the Council itself.

    Chancellor Palpatine presides over the knighting ceremony.

    PALPATINE
    On behalf of the Republic, I welcome
    your protection, your wisdom, and
    your righteousness. You are heroes-
    but more than that, you are mortals,
    just as we are, and as such you remind
    us all that we may someday join you
    in defense of all we treasure.

    Palpatine nods to Yoda, who takes center stage.

    YODA
    Confer on you the title of Jedi Knight
    the council does. May the Force be with
    you.

    The Council applauds its students. Anakin grins.

    EXT. CORUSCANT - CRUX TOWER - NIGHT

    Bright lights shine from the rooftop of the massive skyscraper. Tall banners
    depicting the Jedi emblem hang from the roof. In the distance, FLYING CARS coast
    down invisible traffic lanes.

    EXT. CRUX TOWER - ROOFTOP - NIGHT

    A formal reception. A FLOATING DROID serves drinks to the new Jedi Knights, who
    mingle casually, enjoying their success. MARBLE STATUES circle a central
    fountain.

    Palpatine stands with a token SECURITY DETAIL, smiling calmly as he watches the
    party unfold.

    Cade stands among his circle of friends, cracking jokes and laughing with the
    rest of them.

    Anakin sits alone on a bench, observing in silence.

    Obi-Wan sips wine with Adi Gallia, both of them glancing Anakin's way.

    ADI
    He's the best we have, you know.

    OBI-WAN
    I wish I could take credit for that.

    ADI
    Power isn't everything. You showed
    him how to use it.

    In the middle of the crowd, Mace approaches Cade and shakes his hand. Over
    Cade's shoulder, the senior Jedi glances up at Obi-Wan.

    OBI-WAN
    Why did you give him to me?

    ADI
    It's what Qui-Gon wanted. He thought
    it might make you grow up.

    Obi-Wan bows his head and smiles.

    The elevator doors open-for Amidala. With the squat blue droid R2-D2 and his
    golden comrade C-3PO alongside her, she steps out onto the roof and looks about.

    Anakin quickly takes notice, stands and makes a beeline for her. Seeing Anakin
    rise, Obi-Wan turns toward her as well. Anakin reaches her first.

    ANAKIN
    Amidala!

    He throws his arms around her, and as he does so, C-3PO notices the scar on the
    back of his hand (left over from the less-than-surgical removal of his old slave
    chip).

    C-3PO
    Sir Anakin?

    AMIDALA
    Anakin? (Smiles) It's been a long time.

    ANAKIN
    Too long.

    PALPATINE (O.S.)
    Welcome, Senator.

    The Chancellor steps up to greet Amidala. They share a formal handshake.

    AMIDALA
    Chancellor.

    PALPATINE
    Sir Knight, if I may borrow the lady...

    Anakin nods, then shifts his eyes back to Amidala. She smiles at him, then
    follows Palpatine off toward the railing. The droids remain with Anakin.

    As Anakin watches her go, two R2 droids roll by. R2-D2 goes off to mingle.
    Anakin and Threepio share an awkward silence.

    ANAKIN
    So.

    C-3PO
    Indeed.

    Palpatine takes Amidala out of everyone's earshot, then puts his hand on her
    shoulder and lowers his voice.

    PALPATINE
    We have a problem.

    AMIDALA
    Jenner?

    PALPATINE
    His last "protest" destroyed an entire
    outpost-and others are joining him now.
    There may be war.

    AMIDALA
    War?

    PALPATINE
    His war, not ours-but if his strikes
    continue, we may have no choice but to
    answer in kind.

    The Chancellor casts a concerned glance at the horizon.

    Continuing to enjoy your reworking of the prequel era, Geist, especially the livening and exploring of Jedi culture, making it a bit more accessible and less iconoclast than TPM showed. Masters teaching multiple students over time, the trials, socializing: all are appreciated in making their loss that much greater whne it comes.

    Thanks for waiting...

    EXT. CRUX TOWER - ROOFTOP - NIGHT

    The Chancellor casts a concerned glance at the horizon.

    Behind them, Anakin stands with a rambling Threepio. As the droid speaks,
    Anakin's face draws tight with worry.

    C-3PO
    ...but then before I could finish all
    the loadlifters, the Viceroy's men
    acquired me, whereupon I became
    their interpreter...

    Anakin's tension rises quickly. He swivels his head back and forth; the other
    Jedi carry on, oblivious to the threat he perceives.

    C-3PO
    ...Sir Anakin?

    Suddenly, he zeroes in on a faraway flying car. Stretching out with his senses,
    he sees a SNIPER take aim from the car window.

    Tracing the sniper's line of sight, Anakin snaps back toward Palpatine.
    Instantly, and before Palpatine's guards can react, the young Jedi sprints
    toward the Chancellor, throwing him aside just as the sniper fires.

    The rifle shot screams across Anakin's back, launching him over the rooftop
    railing. He grabs a banner as he falls, clinging to it, swinging shoulder-first
    into the wall, and hanging there in severe pain.

    MACE
    Knights!

    The dozens of Jedi all draw their sabers at once, scanning the skies for the
    enemy.

    INT. FLYING CAR - MOVING

    Jenner's right hand man Cygnus Kai shouts into a comlink.

    CYGNUS
    Plan B! Go! Go!

    EXT. CRUX TOWER - NIGHT

    Still dangling from the banner, Anakin watches as several FLYING TRUCKS break
    away from the surrounding traffic, their trailers swinging open to reveal DOZENS
    OF HEAVILY ARMED TERRORISTS.

    Obi-Wan glares at the attackers, sizing them up.

    These men all carry FIREBRANDS-assault blasters loaded with explosive rounds-and
    wear full-body, face-concealing armor, each suit bearing a jetpack. As one, they
    ignite their packs and fly into attack formation.

    EXT. CRUX TOWER - ROOFTOP - NIGHT

    Amidala ducks toward the struggling Anakin.

    AMIDALA
    Anakin! Hang on!

    She grabs the banner, and begins to pull him up. Behind her, Palpatine's guards
    escort him toward the elevator door.

    The terrorists open fire, each shot detonating on impact. The Jedi and their
    guests scatter. One shot blasts the elevator door, cutting off Palpatine's
    escape.

    As the Jedi regroup, the terrorists cluster into a swarm above them, explosive
    fire raining down.

    A panicked C-3PO ducks and covers under the buffet table. R2 rolls in to join
    him.

    Obi-Wan, Mace and Adi Gallia stand back to back to back beneath a statue. Mace
    eyes two of the terrorists, and claps his hands together; an unseen force hurls
    them into each other, detonating their jetpacks.

    As the terrorists continue to fire, Adi stretches out her palm, diverting
    several of the bolts back into the sky.

    Obi-Wan hurls his lightsaber, telekinetically guiding it toward its target. The
    shining blade sweeps through a terrorist's jetpack, sending him plummeting into
    the side of the building with an explosive blast.

    Having taken cover with his friends, Cade now looks up in anger.

    CADE
    Stay here. I'll teach them how to fly.

    Cade dashes toward a statue and leaps forward, using the statue as a springboard
    as he launches himself into the air. His attack cuts down two more terrorists,
    one of which lands on the terrace.

    Anakin continues to struggle. The banner he clings to begins to rip, the tear
    going straight through the middle of the Jedi emblem. Amidala pulls harder on
    the banner, but it only rips further.

    AMIDALA
    Anakin! Somebody help!

    Obi-Wan hears her cry, and rushes through the fray to her side, giving her a
    cursory nod before turning to Anakin.

    OBI-WAN
    Anakin, take my hand!

    ANAKIN
    I can't reach!

    OBI-WAN
    Use the force! Jump!

    Anakin shakes his head in doubt.

    OBI-WAN
    I know you can do this, Anakin!

    The banner rips almost all the way across, leaving Anakin to swing out sideways.
    The young Jedi looks down in fear.

    OBI-WAN
    Don't look down! Look at me! Trust me.

    Anakin grits his teeth and pulls himself into a telekinetic vertical leap,
    flying up the side of the building. Just as he runs out of momen

    EXT. CORUSCANT SKYLINE - DAWN

    A large medical frigate, the REVERENT, coasts above the cityscape.

    INT. REVERENT - WARD C - DAWN

    A white, antiseptic room. Windows provide a view of the sunrise.

    Numerous WOUNDED JEDI lie in bed, surrounded by FRIENDS AND FAMILY. A lightly
    injured Cade relishes the attention from his numerous friends and fans.

    At the far end of the room lies Anakin, now asleep, with Obi-Wan and Amidala
    sitting beside him, across from each other. The droids stand off to the side.

    OBI-WAN
    It's good to see you.

    AMIDALA
    And you... (jokingly) Sir Kenobi.

    OBI-WAN
    Master Kenobi, thank you.

    She smiles.

    OBI-WAN
    So you're a senator now. Why'd you give up
    the crown?

    AMIDALA
    The Chancellor invited me to join the Senate.
    He said I could help more people.

    OBI-WAN
    Seems you have been.

    The door opens, drawing everyone's attention. Those not confined to their beds
    stand up straight as Chancellor Palpatine makes his entrance, having doubled his
    usual number of BODYGUARDS.

    With an inquisitive expression on his face, the Chancellor walks from one bed to
    the next, then calls a halt in front of Anakin. Obi and Ami rise, while the
    young Jedi still lies sound asleep.

    PALPATINE
    Ah. Forgive my intrusion.

    Anakin stirs and awakens.

    ANAKIN
    ...Chancellor, sir!

    PALPATINE
    Sir Knight. Anakin Skywalker, yes?

    From the next bed, Cade listens in.

    PALPATINE
    (eyeing Obi-Wan's chair)
    If I may...

    OBI-WAN
    Of course.

    The Chancellor takes a seat at Anakin's side.

    PALPATINE
    I owe my life to all those present--
    but to you first, good Sir Knight.
    I would repay you.

    ANAKIN
    I was only doing my job, sir.

    PALPATINE
    And none could do better. I offer you
    a place at my side, as my chief bodyguard.

    Amidala's eyes go from Palpatine to Anakin and back.

    ANAKIN
    You're very kind, sir... but my loyalty is
    with the Knights.

    PALPATINE
    (smiling)
    Loyalty, courage and sacrifice; you are the
    model of what man may become.

    The Chancellor stands.

    PALPATINE
    Should you require anything of me, I freely
    grant it. Till then, may your wounds and
    your burden be light, and may the force
    be with you.

    AMIDALA
    Good day, Chancellor.

    PALPATINE
    I would speak with you as well, my lady.

    She smiles and nods, following him back down the hall. Obi-Wan gives Anakin a
    congratulatory smirk.

    The Chancellor's procession passes Cade without a single glance toward him. The
    wounded Jedi frowns.

    Well worth the wait, Geist. Your Palpatine in DOTF and TBOH is a pleasure. Very believably charismatic, and nicely setting the stage for his alignment with Anakin. Keep up the updates; I want more.
