Greenberg Staff Writer: Brian Larsen Directed by Giancarlo Volpe ¡¡ Danger looms! Despite recent victories in the Outer Rim, criminal minds plot at the very heart of the Republic! The bounty hunter Cad Bane has assembled some of the deadliest criminals in the galaxy and plans a daring attack to seize members of the Senate.
What can be the aim of this despicable act? Here we go.
"Attention, attention.
"This is a restricted area.
"No landing is permitted without permission.
"Violators will be prosecuted to the full extend of the law.
" Put up your hands.
I've got business with the Senate.
How about you fall a step aside? On your knees.
Raise your hands, slowly.
Son, I wouldn't be so hasty if I were you.
Cuff him.
Where's that coming from?! I see the shooter up in the tower.
- Over there.
- Aah! You two, get these uniforms on and get this platform clear.
"Base to platform, what was all that? Report.
" Protesters against the war, we've taken care of them.
Finish getting those uniforms on and clear this platform now.
Everybody else, follow me.
Hey, I'm supposed to be on a meditative retreat.
We should go away together.
I know a place far from here where no one would recognise us.
Yeah, it would be like we're actually husband and wife, instead of Senator and Jedi.
I I can't, Annie.
What do you mean you can't? It's only two weeks, we'll be back before anyone even notices we're gone.
I have to bring this bill before the Senate.
It's important.
More important than the way you feel about me? Not more important, but important.
The work I do, the work we both do, is in service to the Republic.
To protect those who would otherwise be powerless to protect themselves.
Of course, but those are ideals.
Isn't our love more important to you? - But I - No, no "but".
To me there's nothing more important than the way I feel about you.
Anakin, don't be so -- - You don't believe me.
- I didn't say -- I'll prove it.
Just watch.
When I finished constructing my lightsaber, Obi-Wan said to me "Anakin, this weapon is your life.
" This weapon is my life.
No, Anakin, I can't.
A Jedi lightsaber is Wow, it's heavy than I thought.
It's yours.
Believe me now? If all you want to do is make fun of me, - I think you should just go.
- That's not what I want.
Not at all.
Stop! You know what to do.
I'll figure it out.
You better not fail me, bubble brain.
Don't worry, I'll have the power out in no time.
The rest of you come with me.
- But Senator Organa, it just wouldn't be - Quick, hide! The situation cannot be delayed.
Now stand aside.
I apologise for my abruptness.
Oh, Senator Organa, how good to see you.
What is it? Senator Filo has called a meeting in the lobby before we vote on the Enhanced Privacy Invasion Bill.
Right, Privacy Invasion Bill.
We must hurry if we are to stop the vote.
Coming, Senator Amidala? Of course.
Quietly Guard change happens now.
Here we go.
Now let's go talk to some Senators.
Help me.
No! Aah! We can not allow the Chancellor to move this Enhanced Privacy Invasion Bill forward.
We are all in agreement then.
Morning, Senators.
You should all consider yourselves to be in my power.
As long as everybody behaves this will be quick and painless.
Do nothing and it will al be over soon.
I don't know who you think you are, but I for one have no intention of listening to this kind of insolence.
All right then.
If you all gather at the centre of this lovely atrium my co-workers and I will relieve you of any communication devices.
I see five of them here in the room.
- If we -- - What are you going to do? It's not like we carry weapons.
Chancellor Palpatine.
What is it, Senator Orn Free Taa? I think you should see this.
Sorry to bother you, Chancellor, but I've taken control of the east wing of your Senate building.
The occupants are now my hostages.
If you care about them, I'd advise you to free Ziro the Hutt from the detention centre.
You should know that the Republic does not take kindly to such threats.
If you have attempted such a fool-hardy action as to kidnap a Senator, I assure you it will be met with appropriate force.
This ought to do it.
What's going on? I'm in control.
I make the rules now.
Orn Free Taa, help me with this door.
It's no use, sir.
Someone's gotten into the central control panel.
They've triggered the security system.
The Senate buildings have sealed themselves.
This is Chancellor Palpatine, there is an emergency at the Senate Building.
Jedi Council, come in.
Is anyone there? That's no use either, sir.
They've cut off all communication with the outside.
Hand over your communication devices please.
I can't let them search me.
What? Why not? I have something they must not find.
What is it? Well, hello there little lady.
And who might you be? I am Padme Amidala.
Senator from Naboo.
And I demand that you release us immediately.
The Galactic Senate will not treat with with terrorists.
Ain't you awful young and pretty to be a senator? Skywalker?! After him! Hello, come in.
Anyone there? This is General Skywalker, Chancellor Palpatine, can you hear me? My dear boy, I'm glad to know you're there and all right.
What is going on down there? I hear it too.
Coming from up ahead.
"They've sealed the entire building.
"Nobody can get in.
And we can not get out.
" It's up to you.
You have to get to the power control room and turn off the security seal.
You have two more floors to check.
Come on.
We've got two more floors to check.
You take downstairs, I'll go up.
We'll meet on the other side.
No lightsaber cuts.
What happened? Where's the droid? The droid's gone, but there's good news.
The Jedi's unarmed.
What? It doesn't look like he has his lightsaber.
Go, bring him back to me.
Woopsie! Hurry, hurry, hurry.
- The lightsaber, I've got it.
- What? Why do you have a Jedi's lightsaber? The question is whether we should try and get it back to Ana the Jedi Knight.
Or use it ourselves.
Everybody quiet.
I've got a call to make.
So here's what you're going to do.
First you're going to make a pardon disc, you can give it to your friend there.
Hmm, me? My ship will come and pick him up and take him to the prison.
Once Ziro has been released and is handed to me, then your associates will be released.
Understand? Oh, I do.
But I feel it is my duty to warn you that you will end up paying for this outrage.
I can live with that.
Come on, open the door.
I won't hurt you.
Well, well What have we here? Blast it! Tie your little pet up.
We'll bring him to Bane.
Here's the pardon disc.
Let's go.
Why do I have to go to the jail for this? Move it.
Sorry, Senator.
But everyone has a job to do.
Hurry up.
Young Skywalker.
Not so impressive without your lightsaber, are you, Jedi? Toss him in with the others.
Arriving at the prison now.
Unlock the doors.
Oh, it's so bright out here! Why couldn't they do this at night when it's cooler? Go and get the parting gifts.
Oh, look at Senator Orn Free Taa, he looks so unhappy.
Now get me as far away from Coruscant as possible, now! Well, Mr Chancellor, thanks to your calm leadership, the crisis has passed.
I got what I want, so I'll return your Senate and your Senators.
Enjoy them, but don't try anything until the sun has set.
Understand? We are to rendezvous back at the Senate building.
What?! No, no, no, no! The Outer Rim, not the Senate, you stupid machine! I don't want to go to the Senate! We need to get to the landing platform.
- Is everything ready? - Yep, yep.
Turn on the field.
If you so much as breath on one of these lasers, the whole room will blow up.
Senators, Jedi, I bid you all the most respectful farewell.
Let's go.
All clear! Sir, are you all right? Yes, yes, I'm fine.
Mission accomplished, sir.
The Chancellor is safe.
Well done, trooper.
You were foolish to think you could get away with this, bounty hunter? Now lay down your arms and come quietly.
No, Chancellor.
I am afraid it is you who have been foolish with your Senators' lives.
One false move and the east wing of the Senate Building goes up in smoke.
Please, Annie, wake up.
You win, bounty hunter.
Holster! Stand down.
What are you looking so sad about? The bounty hunter said we should just sit here.
I think we should just sit here.
Well, that's not a very good idea.
Come on.
Let's get going.
Too bad I don't have my lightsaber.
You mean this? I found it where you dropped it.
Now, quickly, we don't have much time.
Well, Hutt, it doesn't look like prison had too adverse an effect on you.
Ooh, you can't imagine the unspeakable things I've suffered! The horror! I doubt I'll ever really recover! How about some dead Senators as pay back? Another daring rescue, Master Jedi.
I do my best, Senator.
Congratulations on a job well done, bounty hunter.
Time to pay up, Hutt.
I don't work for free.
