Star Wars: The Clone Wars s05e10 Episode Script

Secret Weapons

Secret transmission intercepted! The Jedi Council has intercepted an encoded transmission of General Grievous.
However, Republic Intelligence officers have failed to crack the new encryption code being used by the droids.
Fears escalate that the Separatists are about to mount a major offensive.
Having located the source of the transmission deep in Separatist space, the Jedi plan a counterstrike to capture an enemy decoding chip which will allow them to understand the transmission and thwart the Separatist plot.
Time is not on our side, so I'll make this short.
You droids have been chosen for a very important mission.
There's an encryption module on board this Separatist dreadnought.
This device is scrambling all Separatist communication in the region.
We believe you five can get behind enemy lines, infiltrate the vault without drawing attention to yourselves, and steal that encryption module.
WAC-47, reporting for duty! Sorry I am late.
I thought the message said to meet in the "Jedi storeroom," whatever that is.
So did I miss anything? Fall in line, soldier.
So I hear we're gonna be taking out Separatists.
clang! I will be honest.
Some of you may not make it back.
What-- why is he looking at me? Uh, were you just looking at me? I--I was just kidding.
But I have faith in your abilities.
You are not ordinary droids.
You've worked with the Jedi before.
You are our secret weapons.
Now, let me turn you over to your mission leader.
The colonel is one of our top minds at Strategic Command.
He's been with the Republic since the Battle of Geonosis, Colonel Meebur Gascon.
boing! Thank you, Master Windu.
I'll take it from here.
May the Force be with you.
Attention! Now, I'm only gonna say this once, so turn up your audio inputs.
Once we're inside the cruiser, we make our way to "C" deck.
That's where their communication center is housed.
We bypass security here and here, divert the super battle droids here.
Then we break the vault code, beat the swarm mines, steal the encryption module, and return home in time for my promotion ceremony to brigadier general.
Are we clear? Uhuh Good, that's what I like: no questions.
D-Squad, fall in line! The line starts behind me, mech.
clang! Over here, you mechs, front and center.
This is Dr.
- He is-- - Uh, uh, Corporal? Colonel.
Well, I just want to set the record straight.
I am not a mech.
You called us all mechs back there, but as you can see, I am a WAC.
Granted, my master's not a Jedi, but I am a different class of droid better engineering.
As I was saying, before I was rudely interrupted, Dr.
Gubacher is going to equip each of you with a tactical upgrade specially designed for this mission.
All right, enough with the chatter.
Let's get this show on the road.
Cyclops, you're not needed here.
Go prepare our shuttle for launch.
R2-D2, these advanced rocket boosters should give you better aerial mobility and for longer periods of time.
Ah, but be advised: the navigation controls are finely tuned.
QT-KT, this coil is a remote-controlled magnet.
It can attract any metal object in a seven-meter radius.
But when dealing with mines, you'll want to take care.
The magnetic force is extremely powerful.
U9-C4, this laser-cutter will slice through most materials you encounter.
But make sure you're in a locked position.
The recoil packs quite a wallop.
No, no, no, no, no.
M5-BZ, we are not putting anything inside you.
We're taking something out: your memory banks.
I'll be making the extraction myself in the salvage room.
I am sorry, but we need to make room for the colonel's command center.
No need to baby him.
He's just a droid.
Fortunately, he won't remember any of this.
What do you want, Beezee? It's me, you moron.
What are you doing in there, Corporal? And how many times do I have to tell you? It's colonel.
Nice setup.
I want to know why I did not get an upgrade.
Because you are just a pilot! Now do your job and pilot this ship! Just a pilot-- we will see about that.
All right, Cyclops, listen up.
I want you to alert me when we near the dreadnought.
I have a plan on how to attract their attention.
I already took care of it.
What do you mean? What did you do? I put us on a collision course with the dreadnought.
See, Corporal? I am not just a pilot.
You idiot! We're caught in a tractor beam.
Hold it right there.
Out of the way, tin cans.
Let's check the cockpit.
No sign of life, just these droids.
Continue your search while I take these droids in for interrogation.
clang! Everyone just stay calm.
Oh, my gosh! You are Republic droids! That is right, and I am their leader.
Yeah, I got him.
bong! Well, thanks for the assist, Qutee.
All right, listen up.
The next phase of my plan is to reach "C" deck.
We'll take this path here.
Since the mechs won't draw much attention, we'll go in a convoy.
Cyclops, you lead the way.
If anyone asks, you're taking the droids on a repair job.
Got it? Yes, sir, uh Captain.
It's colonel! I swear, Cyclops.
You are gonna drive me crazy.
Now, I want flat top to locate the comm-vault power supply then use his laser to cut the main line and cause a temporary loss in power.
You can do it, Ceefor! Oh, do not forget to lock down your-- Sir, there was a temporary power loss on "C" deck.
Has the power been reestablished? Yes.
It was only a temporary fluctuation.
Hmm, curious.
All right, listen up.
Cutting the power put the comm-vault security system in manual override.
But someone still has to distract some super battle droids.
Oh, please, please, please.
Let me do it, come on, come on, come on, come on, let me do it, please.
Come on, come on.
All right.
You will not regret this, corporal.
I am not a Halt.
I have been ordered by General Grievous to test comm-vault security.
And I need your help.
Now, follow me.
Now, I will go inside the comm-vault and send out a power surge.
I need you two to stay here.
It will not be safe for you while I am working.
Are we clear? Yes, but-- - Good.
That is what I like: no questions.
Huh? Thank you, thank you, thank you very much.
We need to keep moving.
Beezee, open the comm-vault security door.
Uh, make sure it is not booby-trapped.
clang! You blockhead! Now we're going to lose manual override.
Youyou terminated Beezee.
It's not my fault he fried his circuitry.
I didn't tell that nitwit to attack the access panel.
So what do we do now, Corporal? Look, we can still salvage this mission.
If one of you could just-- you need to reaccess that panel, and we have to open that comm-vault door fast and grab the encryption module before we're caught red-handed.
No, I will not do it myself.
I'm an officer.
I've got no experience in this type of crisis maneuver.
You fought in the Battle of Geonosis.
That did not prepare you for a crisis? Well, technically, I didn't fight in that battle.
I'm a military analyst by trade and-- - You are a map reader? I am an accomplished battlefield strategist.
I analyze the enemy terrain and plot a course to victory.
In other words, you read maps.
You're off base here, Cyclops! I was chosen for my fearsome cunning, although my size may have played a small factor.
But do not think for a moment that Colonel Meebur Gascon is going to relinquish command of this mission.
I have waited a lifetime for this opportunity, and some ragtag collection of droids is not going to deny me my destiny.
So one way or another, I will open that comm-vault door.
Oh, there, just like I planned it.
Now, we're going to infiltrate this vault, neutralize the swarm mines, and then secure the encryption module.
Any questions? Have you ever been in a battle before? No, I have not.
But if you'd care to see what I'm made of, we can go to war right now, you and me, and probably get ourselves captured by a Separatist.
Or we can execute my plan and come out of this mission looking like heroes.
The choice is yours, Cyclops.
First of all, my name is WAC.
Second of all, we will execute your plan.
But you have to stop calling us stupid names, Shorty.
Very well, WAC.
I'll play nice, but only until one of you screws up again.
Sir, there has been another disturbance on "C" deck.
I will investigate this situation personally.
All right, Pinky-- I mean, Qutee.
This is your chance to shine.
Use your magnet to attract those swarm mines.
There it is, the encryption module.
It's all up to you now, Artoo.
Not so fast.
clang! Arms up.
pop! Right, turn it off, quick! thud! Ah! I will help you, Corporal.
Oh, I'm gonna be sick.
Corporal, are you okay? Look out! clang! I will turn the gravity back on.
Hurry, WAC, hurry! pop! I'll take that.
Ha-ha, good work, Artoo.
Intruder alert.
Intruder alert.
Intruder alert.
Intruder alert.
Let's move it out, D-Squad.
What are you doing? We're going to get caught! Artoo says we cannot leave Beezee behind.
Artoo's right.
We can repair him on the shuttle.
There's trouble on "C" deck.
Report there immediately.
Get out of the way, you stupid astromechs.
Funny thing about droids-- last thing they'd expect to betray them: another droid.
D-Squad, let's go home.
Ah, my first mission-- a rousing success and a brilliant plan if I do say so myself.
I agree, Artoo.
The team's execution was not too shabby.
Who knows, you droids might just make decent soldiers after all.
Oh, and you, too, WAC.
Yes, sir, Colonel.
