Dooku Captured

Wars SEasone 1 Episode 11 Manhunt! After a long and perilous search, the Jedi finally track down separatist leader count Dooku.
During a heroic attempt to capture the count, Anakin Skywalker has gone missing.
Having lost contact with Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi heads toward his friend's last known location, a lone separatist frigate in the far reaches of the outer rim.
Don't bother to get up.
You're not the prisoner I'm looking for.
Oh, it's you.
This is how you thank me for rescuing you, pounce on me from the ceiling? Kind of difficult without a Lightsaber.
Did you manage to locate Dooku before landing in jail? Well, I know he's on board.
Might have been able to do something about it if I'd had my weapon.
It was important for you to arrive without it - so your capture would be convincing.
- Oh, they were convinced, all right.
But how come I'm the one getting caught all the time? It doesn't look good.
When you're a Jedi master, you can make the plan.
That's just it.
How can I become a Jedi master if I'm always getting caught? At least you're a master at getting caught.
Very funny.
Surprise, surprise.
If it isn't count Dooku.
Obi-Wan Kenobi.
I thought I sensed an unpleasant disturbance in the force.
I see you've freed young Skywalker.
Where might he be if you weren't always around to rescue him? Sir, there's a Jedi cruiser attacking.
Let's try not to blow up the ship before they get off this time.
Your ship is surrounded, count.
Republic troops are boarding as we speak.
Jedi fools.
I should have seen that coming.
- What are you doing? - Following him.
Not that way.
We need to cut him off.
You cut him off.
I'll follow him and meet you at the hangar.
Why do I even try? Oh, great.
- Your ship is ready, sir.
- Good.
- I thought you were following Dooku.
- I was.
I followed him here.
Hang on.
Ahsoka, Dooku managed to escape.
We're in pursuit, but we could use reinforcements.
Follow us in what ships you can round up.
We'll get there as soon as we can.
That was easy.
Lucky for you, I'm an excellent shot.
Well, now those fighters are attacking.
I'm on it.
He's getting too close.
Lucky for you, I'm an excellent pilot.
For all your expertise, this is not a very smooth landing.
And if you'd hit that second fighter, we wouldn't be in this mess.
I've had better landings.
What's this, a homing beacon? Which means the distinguished count is waiting for help.
- So he can't be far off.
- His engine is damaged.
- He's not going anywhere.
- Not without a homing beacon.
Caves are a good start.
You sense it too.
Many life forms in there.
And Dooku's one of them.
Let's try to get him before something else does.
What's that? Run ! You won't be needing this anymore, Skywalker.
Well, well.
What do we have here? Who are you? More importantly, my friend, who are you? Master! Obi-Wan, can you hear me? Master! Anakin, when I tell you to run, run.
Master! You're alive.
And where's your lightsaber? It got knocked out of my hand.
- By a rock? - Yeah, by a rock.
- It's got to be here somewhere.
- That is a feeble excuse.
You know what would be helpful? A little light.
Silly thing.
It was just working a minute ago.
You don't suppose it was hit by a rock, do you? This should be interesting.
Your solar sailor is very beautiful.
It's a pretty rare ship, very expensive.
What are you doing all the way out here? I sustained some damage in an asteroid storm and had to make a landing.
Feel free to help yourself to it.
If you need transport, the nearest planet is Florrum.
It's six parsecs away.
Is it civilized? That depends on your definition of civilized.
But you would certainly be more comfortable there than here.
Vanqor is no place to be after dark.
Perhaps I shall take you up on your offer.
Very good.
Now all that's left to do is settle my fee.
Fee? Just a little something to cover my expenses.
It shouldn't be a problem for someone so obviously wealthy as yourself.
I'd be happy to compensate you for your services.
That's it, boys! We are heading home.
Jump in anytime! Oh, you're doing fine.
She seems to like you.
Yeah, lucky me! This isn't as much fun as it looks.
I thought gundarks were only found on Vanqor.
Then this system must be Vanqor.
- So that would make this one - The mother of all gundarks.
Are you gonna help me? Well, you took your time.
It's a pity.
I was just starting to sense a connection.
Should I leave you two alone, or would you prefer to find a way out of this hole before she wakes up? Welcome to Florrum.
Lose your flashy sword? Are these what you were looking for, Jedi? I am more powerful than any Jedi.
Know that you are dealing with a sith lord.
You're still outnumbered.
The leader of the clanker army and a sith lord, no less.
Someone is sure to pay a pretty price for you.
Provide me with the proper means of communications.
I will arrange for any ransom to be paid.
And you will arrange for your armies to crush us as well.
You don't survive in the outer rim by being stupid.
If the separatists will pay to get you back, chances are, the republic will offer even more.
- Sounds like another gundark.
- It's too far away to worry about.
It won't stay far away.
New problem.
That's not good.
It's just gas.
Probably toxic gas.
That's good.
Maybe it'll kill your gundark.
- And maybe it will kill us.
- Come on.
Let's get out of here.
This isn't gonna work.
- I can't breathe.
- As always, I'm open to sugges Come on, Obi-Wan.
Don't give up now.
- What was that? - I have no idea.
Master! Looks like I got here just in time.
What do you mean, just in time? - You were in very big trouble.
- Trouble? We were simply searching for Count Dooku.
We had the situation well under control, my little Padawan.
I see.
So which part of the situation did you have under control: the blocked entrance, the poison gas, or that gundark behind you? Gundark? You mean the one that's too far away to worry about? Block the entrance.
There's still Dooku to deal with.
You let him get away? No, not get away exactly.
Just Chime in anytime.
Oh, no.
I'm enjoying this far too much.
If you want the Sith Lord, it will cost you a million credits.
The payment will be in spice delivered in an unarmed diplomatic ship.
We will need proof he's alive before agreeing to your terms.
Let me present your fearless Sith Lord.
I'm afraid he's too embarrassed to speak.
A hologram can be faked.
You want proof? This is his lightsaber.
Belongs to Dooku, that lightsaber does.
This scum having possession of Dooku's lightsaber proves nothing.
If you refuse, I am sure the Separatist council will be more than willing to meet my price.
We may never have a better chance to capture Count Dooku.
We would like to send two Jedi to confirm you have Count Dooku before delivering the ransom.
Send your Jedi, but they must be unarmed.
- Impossible.
- They will be safe.
We have no interest in getting involved in your war.
We've reestablished contact with Kenobi and Skywalker.
They're in a system close to Florrum.
And most eager to find Dooku, they are.
His only stipulation is that you arrive unarmed.
Unarmed? We know very little about these pirates.
We may be walking blind into what could very well be a hostile situation.
We can't let Dooku slip through our fingers again.
Report back as soon as you arrive.
This should be fun.
Follow me.
Can I offer you something to drink? No, thank you.
Congratulations on your capture of Count Dooku.
- Very impressive.
- Yes, it was.
Even a Sith Lord is no match for my warriors.
He put up quite a fight: blasters, cannons, that glowy thing.
- You mean a lightsaber? - That's it.
And I don't need to tell you, those things can do some damage.
Carved up some of my best men pretty good before I could get the jump on him.
And how exactly did you get the jump on him? With this? We have no interest in disagreeing with you.
All we want is to confirm you are holding Dooku, and we'll go.
I will arrange a meeting.
Look how the mighty Sith Lord has fallen.
This place suits you, Count.
It wasn't so long ago that you yourself were in similar surroundings on my ship.
Yeah, but now I'm free, and you're not.
I'm confident the situation will rectify itself soon.
Soon you'll be brought to trial by the Senate and most likely spend a very long time in a cell just like this one.
And that's if you're lucky.
My naive young Jedi.
You must be overly optimistic if you think these Weequayans plan to let you leave this planet.
They're planet-hopping thieves looking for a quick score.
They have no interest in picking a fight with Jedi.
They are devious and deceitful and most importantly, stupid.
It's a wonder you don't get along with them, Dooku.
You have so much in common.
You underestimate them at your own peril, Kenobi.
I don't know about you, but I could use some rest.
Remember, Anakin, this could still be a trap.
You're not worried about Dooku, are you? No, I'm worried about these pirates.
Jedi! Now that you're business is completed, we invite you to join us in the grand hall for a banquet.
And a true Weequay banquet is not to be missed.
No question they have Dooku.
Send the ransom.
He's being securely held? - And very cranky about it.
- Good.
Senator Kharrus and Representative Binks will be dispatched immediately.
Now, can I persuade you to join us for a drink? It's a tradition, in the name of friendship.
All right, but nothing too strong.
- He's flying.
- Bring our guests some refreshments.
To a successful transaction.
To powerful pirates and new friends of the Republic.
Enjoy your evening, gentlemen.
- I still don't get it.
- Get what? How a bunch of drunken pirates managed to catch Dooku when we couldn't.
Maybe there's a lesson to be learned here.
- I still don't get it.
- It's to remind us to be humble and never too proud to accept a gift when it comes our way.
Well, to unexpected gifts, then.
The negociations were short.
Weequayan pirates have captured Anakin and I and our cellmate is my least favorite Sith Lord, Count Dooku.
All we have to do now, is break out with Dooku and escape without dying.
Unfortunately, it seems our only help is Jar Jar.
This is not going as planned.
