Star Wars Resistance (2018) s02e18 Episode Script

The Escape

Finally, a little downtime.
I don't know why they're having us work so much.
Rumor has it a big mission is coming up and we're gonna need all hands on deck.
What are you talking about? Let's just say there are pockets of Resistance all over this system.
I think we just arrived.
Wait, that's Aeos.
Why are we back at Aeos? [ENGINES ROARING.]
Oh, no.
What? Those subversives got what they deserved.
But there are innocent people there too.
Who harbored criminals.
So they're not that innocent, are they? You're a squadron leader now.
You've got to accept these things.
Hey, where are you going? Tam! [TENSE MUSIC.]
Excuse me, could you upgrade the system later? I'm in the middle of something.
Actually, stay right there, little friend.
Go right ahead.
Upgrade away.
Sorry, little guy.
Don't worry, I'll have you back online in no time.
You are doing me a huge service, 5-L.
[5-L BEEPS.]
See? That didn't hurt at all, did it? [5-L CHIRPS.]
Now, you're gonna help me get out of here.
General Hux.
The suppression of the Aeos system is complete.
There is no longer a Resistance presence in the sector.
Except, perhaps, the Colossus.
Supreme Leader Ren.
While while its whereabouts are still unknown, we are already working on a solution to that problem, Supreme Leader.
Your list of failures is long, Agent Tierny.
I will not suffer the existence of any Resistance cell, no matter how small.
If you are not capable of dealing with them, then I will find someone who can.
We understand, Supreme Leader.
Do you? [DARK MUSIC.]
Now, do you understand? Yes, Supreme Leader.
Absolutely, Supreme Leader.
I suggest doubling our efforts immediately.
Thanks, 5-L.
You did great.
[5-L BEEPS.]
I hope it's still here.
Ah, got it.
Provide me a full report, Officer.
Oh, no.
I want to see every detail accounted for.
- Yes, sir.
5-L, hide.
I don't know, anywhere.
Well, is the system upgrade complete? [5-L CHIRPS.]
Now I need you for one last thing.
I hope this works.
Could you pass me the electrostatic discharge coupling, Kaz? Hey, sure.
Here you go.
Your skills as a mechanic just keep improving, Kaz.
In the common vernacular: wow! [LAUGHS.]
Yeah, well, I, uh I learned a lot from you and, uh, Tam.
Uh, I must say, the Fireball is looking pretty good.
- How about a little help? - Yeah, sure, Yeager.
It'll be just like the old days.
Yes, back in these "old days," Tam would have yelled at you for placing accelerator rods in the decelerator ports, and then you would have electrocuted yourself and we all would have had a chuckle at your expense.
- Ah, memories.
Yeah, well, those days are gone, and so is Tam.
Uh, Kaz, your comlink's going off.
What is that? Hmm, that appears to be a code.
It sounds oddly familiar.
It's my code! W-what do you mean, it's "your code"? It is a mechanic's code that Tam and I came up with.
We used it to discuss your lack of mechanical skills and knowledge without you overhearing us.
Yes, yes, it is Tam! Tam? Tam is sending us a message? Why? I do not know, but this code could also be used as shorthand in the case of an emergency.
What does it say? "Meet me in three cycles" [BEEPING CONTINUES.]
"In the place where Bibo lives"? Oh, I miss Bibo.
Neeku, are you sure? Mostly sure, yes.
T-there is more to the message, but I cannot make it out.
Something about the First Order? The signal appears to be quite weak.
It's okay, I can translate it.
Oh, did Tam teach you the mechanic's code as well? Hmm, that would be awkward.
No, no she didn't, but but I know what she's trying to say.
Tam wants out.
She wants to leave the First Order and meet us where Bibo lives: on Castilon! Whoa, whoa, hold up.
We need to be careful.
This whole thing could be a First Order trap.
You're right, Yeager.
If it's a trap, the Colossus will be safe here, halfway across the galaxy.
But if the message is real, just to be on the safe side, I'll go alone.
I'm going with you.
We just have to run this rescue plan past Doza.
That's no problem.
Captain Doza's been in her exact position before.
He should totally understand.
Are you mad? Clearly, this is a trap.
You both see that, don't you? It could be, Captain, by why would Tam personally contact us with Neeku's code? I believe that she's ready to leave the First Order, that she's had a change of heart.
You had one when you left the Empire.
If we were facing the same situation with Torra, we would take any risk to return her home safely.
Wouldn't we, Imanuel? [TENSE MUSIC.]
Take the First Order shuttle.
You'll attract less attention.
Thank you, Captain.
Keep your comms open and on a secure frequency.
May the Force be with you both.
What's going on, 533? Mind your own business, 798.
I'd like to know what you're doing as well, Tamara.
Agent Tierny.
I'm just preparing my TIE for the training session I'm leading.
I thought that was in Hangar D-13? Operations must have moved it to a different hangar.
798, assist her.
Yes, sir.
I can't believe we're back on Castilon.
It feels so lonely here without the Colossus.
I think this is the same ring I crashed into the first time I raced here.
All right, now we wait for Tam and hope she doesn't have company with her.
Okay, squadron, we'll be training in the Tashtor sector.
"Tashtor"? Wait, Castilon? Has this been authorized? Don't question your superior officer, 798.
Just follow my orders.
I'll have the report from Operations later today.
Sir, Lieutenant Ryvora's training squadron jumped to another system.
Where? Long-range sensors indicate Castilon.
Well, it seems your new squadron leader is feeling homesick.
Got to admit, it's nice being back on this old water ball.
A lot of peaceful memories here.
Before you showed up.
You know, when I first met Tam, she had just run away from home to be a racer.
Reminded me a lot of my brother Marcus, actually, and never stayed in one place too long.
She came to the Colossus to race and lost everything.
Had to sell her ship just to survive.
All she ever wanted to do was race and keep moving, keep going.
Why didn't you just give her the Fireball ? Ah, 'cause if I did, I was worried she'd just take off.
Race somewhere else.
I didn't want to lose her.
And company.
Oh, no.
Squadron, training will have to wait.
I see a shuttle that was reported missing months ago.
Follow me and do not engage.
- Kaz - We're sitting gorgs out here! There's somebody standing on that racing ring? [APPROACHING ENGINES WHINING.]
Kaz? Yeager? They're Resistance! All TIEs fire! [GRUNTS.]
CB, prep the shuttle! Hurry! [CB-23 CHIRPING.]
Squadron, stand down! I said, stand down! - That must be Tam! - You sure? Who else would fire on another TIE? [WARM, TRIUMPHANT MUSIC.]
Tam! I see you decoded my message.
Yeah, uh, Neeku did.
I I mean, we did, and Yeager, I, uh Good to see you, Tam.
I never would have thought you'd be here.
Why is that? I didn't think you trusted me anymore.
After what you did, I won't lie, it is difficult.
But, Yeager, you did lie about Kaz, the Resistance.
It was for your own good, but I never thought you'd be so foolish as to Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Come on, you two.
We we don't have time for this.
Let's go home, and then you guys can argue all you want.
Wait, we can't leave Rucklin.
He may be a shmoob, but I can't just abandon him.
Rucklin? [GRUNTING.]
Oh, he's, uh [GROANS.]
Oh, he's heavier than he looks.
What just came out of hyperspace? [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
Oh, no.
Okay, everyone move.
Move, let's go.
- Hit it, CB! [CB WARBLES.]
Ah, they're trying to pin us down.
We have to get past that destroyer in order to jump back home.
CB, set to jump? [CB CHIRPS.]
Kaz, contact the Colossus.
Tell them we're coming.
Captain Doza, we've got Tam and we're [STATIC.]
What? We're caught in a tractor beam.
Kaz? Kaz, are you there? Kaz, please respond.
And they've jammed our comms.
- Tam? - It wasn't me, Yeager.
Well, you got us into this mess.
How are you going to get us out? Okay, okay, uh, remember that maneuver you told me about? The one you pulled off at the Battle of Jakku? - What maneuver? - No, no, we're not doing that.
This is a different ship.
There's no guarantee it'll work.
What will work? It's not like you have much of a choice here.
Between die or captured, I'll take captured.
I'm agreeing with that.
Captured is better than death.
What happened? Tam? What is going on here? [PANEL CHIRPS, BEEPS.]
"Barabesh system"? You know they'll just kill you.
Sorry, what was the other option? - Fine, we'll do it.
- Do what? You get into position and I'll erase all of the flight logs so they can't track our path back to the Colossus.
Can some please tell me what we're doing? [KLAXON BLARING.]
What's happening? What what are you doing? - Self-destruct.
- What? You're setting us to "self-destruct"? Yeah, I told you it was dangerous.
- How much time do we have? - Not a lot.
All right, lock it down.
Don't shoot! She did this.
I have nothing to do with her.
Quiet! Hands up, now! Where are the rest of your conspirators, traitor? It's just me and this loudmouth right here.
Whoa, that's not true! There are others inside.
Search the shuttle.
I feel it's safe to assume your "training" did not go quite as planned.
I once thought you had great potential, Tamara.
You betrayed the First Order, and as you know, treason is punishable by death.
I'm not afraid of you anymore, Tierny.
Perhaps not now.
No, no, wait, hold on! I saw their flight data before they erased it.
They came from the Barabesh system.
That's where the Colossus is hiding out.
- Take them away.
- But but it's true! Please, you can't do this! I'm one of you! - You ready? - This way.
Sir, the transport's been set to self-destruct! It's a set-up.
Don't let them escape! [GRUNTS.]
Lock down all corridors.
Don't let them off this level.
Come in, Kaz, Yeager.
Please respond.
Captain, sir, we've lost their signal completely.
That's it, I'm going to investigate.
I'll take Hype and Freya with me, and don't even We will wait for them to respond.
I will make my decision from there.
And if they don't respond, Imanuel? [ENGINES WHIRRING.]
Security, we have Resistance agents loose on this ship.
Lock down all positions.
Code Red.
Understood, Agent Tierny.
We have the location of the Colossus.
There is nowhere left for them to run.
You'd better hope not, Commander, or it'll mean both our heads.
Set course for the Barabesh system.
This is all a big mistake! I'm not a conspirator.
Tam's the traitor, not me.
You're not helping yourself.
This is just a misunderstanding.
- Keep moving.
- I'm on your side! We're gonna capture the Colossus thanks to me! - [HOLLERS, GRUNTS.]
- Hey, leave him alone! You want this too, traitor? [GOOFY HOLLERING.]
Kaz! - Get down! - [HOLLERS.]
Come on, we've gotta keep moving.
- What about Kaz? - I'm moving, I'm moving! Let's find a way off this ship.
It won't even matter if you escape.
I told them where the Colossus is.
Face it: you've already lost.
- Is that true, Tam? - I'm afraid it is.
- What are we gonna do? - Right now, we run.
We've waited long enough, father! If something happened to them, we have to help! Let me go to Castilon.
I admire your courage, Torra, but we can't allow you to go.
- At least not alone.
- What? It may not be the wisest course of action, but Torra is right.
We cannot sit here and do nothing while our friends suffer.
Imanuel, you know I'm all for saving them, but we'd be taking a terrible risk.
Think about everyone here.
You're right, but if we act, we must all be aware of the risk.
Neeku, have everyone on the Colossus gather at Aunt Z's.
Ugh, they've locked down the turbolifts.
CB, where are you? CB? CB? We're at turbolift, uh, G-27! You gotta activate it for us! [CB-23 CHIRPS.]
Activate the turbolift! We need the turbolift whoa! Oh, nice work, CB.
Oh, nice work.
Uh, she says we're already in hyperspace.
Then it's only a matter of time until they reach the Colossus.
Guys, I know this doesn't look good, but we're Team Fireball.
We can figure this out.
If only we can warn them.
Maybe we can.
If we can get to engineering, I can route a subspace frequency with CB's help.
We can send a warning to the Colossus so they can get away! As soon as we send that transmission, the First Order will know exactly where we are.
It's worth it to save our friends.
After what I've done, it's the least I can do.
CB, meet us in engineering.
Sir, DT-533 has escaped with the prisoners.
They were last seen in turbolift G-27.
I thought all turbolifts were locked down.
They were, sir, but it appears they were tampered with.
Let's move.
Hey, what's going on? Explain to me what we're doing here? Aunt Z, no drinks? Aunt Z, what's this all about? We're here 'cause Captain Doza ordered us to be here.
If Doza wants to give us orders, he should come down here and give them! I am not here to give orders.
Most of you have lived here for many years, and I know it has been a struggle, but it is nothing compared to us being hunted by the First Order.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, but that's Kaz-tastrophe's fault.
They never bothered with us before he showed up.
And without his help, we would all be working in prison camps or worse.
Captain, what exactly are you asking of us? Earlier today, Kazuda Xiono and Jarek Yeager went to try and rescue one of our own, Tam Ryvora.
We haven't heard from them since.
So you want us to fight? Is that it? I am asking you to help our friends.
Not a chance.
You know what? They're your Where are they, Captain? We believe they may be trapped onboard a Star Destroyer.
"A Star Destroyer"? No, I'm out.
I don't know about this.
Oh, too dangerous for my liking.
I'm with Jooks.
Count me out.
All engineering personnel: be on the lookout for any suspicious [INAUDIBLE.]
Okay, we'll need to get down there to tap into communications.
Down there? It's the only place we can bypass the main control and transmit without being jammed.
- [CB-23 CHIRPS.]
- CB! [CB-23 CHIRPS.]
Let's make this quick.
Follow me, and be careful.
Down there! [HOLLERING.]
I'll keep watch.
You just get that signal out.
This is just like old times, huh, Tam? [CHUCKLES.]
Sir, a security breach has just been reported in engineering.
Lock down all exits on that level.
The rest of you, follow me.
A transmission? A-a transmission! - [OVERLAPPING CHATTER.]
- Everyone, please! I'm not asking you to join the Resistance.
But choosing to go head-on with a Star Destroyer? That is insane.
Completely insane! We're still recovering from the damage we took the last time they found us! [BITEY SQUEALS.]
We don't have enough pilots to defend the station.
Hey, everyone one of my Aces is worth a dozen TIE pilots.
Excuse me, pardon me.
Pardon me; excuse me; sorry.
Look, Kaz, Yeager, even Tam they're more than friends.
They are part of the Colossus.
We're all family here.
It's too dangerous! - Excuse me, excuse me.
- Hey! Urgent matters.
Coming through.
- Captain Doza! - Not now, Neeku.
We have an incoming transmission from - Not now, Neeku.
- But it is from Kaz! [DEVICE WHIRS.]
- [GASPS.]
- Kazuda.
Captain, Doza, sir wow, uh, everyone else hi.
Our rescue mission went a little wrong, and now we're trapped on this Star Destroyer, which is on its way to the Colossus.
You need to get as far away as you can, now! Well, that settles it.
You heard him! Let's get out of here while we still can.
He's got a point.
- That's Tam! Traitor! I made a terrible mistake.
I am sorry for putting you all at risk.
But now I'm asking pleading for you all to get away from there.
This is the only chance you will have before the First Order arrives.
We've got company.
Everyone, save yourselves! That's it.
We have to help them.
No more running.
Yeah, take action! For our friends.
So, Captain, how do we fight back? I have some experience with that.
They won't know what hit them.
Huzzah! As Kaz would say, "Let's blast some buckets!" [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
Oh, this is not good.
This is not good.
This way! Commander, we forced them into the maintenance hatch just as you ordered.
There's a transport.
Come on, let's go.
Drop your weapons.
Take them to the bridge.
- You ready, gang? Jade Squadron standing by.
- Good to go.
- Ready as I'll ever be.
- You know Hype's ready.
- Let's do this.
Cannons online and ready, Captain.
Captain Doza, I must admit, my former enthusiasm for adventure is being overtaken by complete and utter terror as well as slight nausea.
I know the feeling well, Neeku.
It looks like you found our friends, Pyre.
I'm impressed with your tenacity, but that will come to an end soon enough.
Tamara, how did I fail you? I made you a pilot.
I gave you purpose.
I gave you everything you ever wanted.
What did he give you that I could not? A family.
How touching.
Amusing how all of your efforts amounted to nothing.
We will be arriving at the Colossus momentarily.
Yeah? Well, too bad for you.
We already warned them.
The Colossus will be long gone by the time you get to them.
Oh, no, no, no, no.
Why are they still here? Launch all TIE squadrons and prepare cannons to open fire.
Now you get to watch your family perish.
All right, team, we're going for their engines.
Jade Squadron, focus ion bombs on the panels near their thrusters.
If we get close enough, we might have a chance at taking them out.
All right, Aces, remember what I said: one Ace is worth at least a dozen TIEs.
We're gonna find out soon enough.
I gotcha, Bucket! - [LASER WHIRS.]
It's not gonna make much of a dent as long as their shields are still up.
Just do what you can.
The shields are holding.
We're tracking eight craft preparing another run on the engines.
Looks like they're attempting to attack our thrusters.
They'll never breach the shields.
Prepare a boarding party, Commander.
With pleasure.
Boarding craft, begin preparations.
Intensifying primary deflectors.
4D, status report.
Our attacks have had little to no effect on their shields, while our own have decreased to 30%.
This isn't working.
Anyone have any other ideas? I was wondering the same thing! Just keep firing.
We can't afford to stop now.
Agent Tierny, sir, our shields have somehow been deactivated.
Well, raise them.
Bring them back online! I I can't! Captain, the destroyer's shields have been deactivated.
Aces, their shields are down.
I repeat, their shields are down! All right, everyone, go for their engines and fire everything you've got! [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
Disable the controls! [GRUNTS, HOLLERS.]
- Go, go, go! - [CB-23 WHIRS.]
- CB, this way! Ha! Now we're getting somewhere.
We just need to get to that transport.
- And fast.
- Come on.
CB, can you lower us onto that crane? [CB-23 WHIRS, CHIRPS.]
Cover me.
Our shields have been compromised and the prisoners have escaped the bridge.
What? CB! [CB-23 CHIRPS.]
Come on, while they're down! [SCREAMS.]
We're gonna die! [SCREAMING.]
Kaz! Come in, Kaz! [GRUNTING.]
- Kaz, are you there? - [FRANTIC GRUNTING.]
- [GASPS.]
CB! CB! CB, talk to me! [CB-23 WARBLES SADLY.]
It's okay, we'll get you fixed.
Kaz! Come on, we don't have much time! Torra! Torra, come in! Kaz, you're okay! For now, yeah.
We're taking one of the transports to get out of here.
- Please don't fire at us! - Copy that.
Ha! - No, no, no! - [HOLLERS.]
- Ha-ha! - [BITEY CHIRPS.]
The transmission is coming through now, sir.
Supreme Leader, I have the Colossus within my grasp, but I need reinforcements.
To add to your failure? No, I simply need support to The First Order does not tolerate the weak, Agent Tierny.
I understand.
- Do you? - Yes [GAGGING.]
Supreme Leader [ENGINES ROAR.]
We're close, gang.
Just one more pass.
Whoo! I think that did it! [TRIUMPHANT MUSIC.]
Yes! Whoo-hoo-hoo! They did it! [OVERLAPPING CHATTER.]
We did it, Captain Doza.
I absolutely thought we were collectively doomed, but we did it! Yes, we did, Neeku.
Welcome home, Tam.
Commander Doza, I I Permission to come onboard? Of course, Tamara.
This is your home.
Tam! Neeku.
Oh, am I happy to see you! We have so much maintenance work to catch up on! Things will be so much easier with you back, and so much more efficient.
Neeku, I'm sorry.
- So sorry.
- We all make mistakes, Tam.
Some are more cataclysmic than others, but it is okay.
Come on, let's take this to Aunt Z's.
Look at this place.
It's a disaster.
That's the price of freedom, Tam.
And by the way, the price of your drinks has just gone up.
It's worth it, Aunt Z.
Well worth it.
I just want to say thank you.
I was just so afraid.
But when it mattered most, you were the bravest of us all.
And I was also brave.
You've always been brave, Kaz.
Team Fireball.
Oh, better yet, Team Colossus.
ALL: Team Colossus! [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
