And here we are, Part One - Assault on Briff. Enjoy!
A lone Imperial Shuttle flies toward the planet Briff, where the Imperial Remnant has just established a small base.
As the Shuttle lands, the small number of Stormtroopers and Officers walk up to greet the Passenger, General Frung, a veteran of the Clone Wars. Two thugs, who helped the Remnant find a remote location for the base, approach the Shuttle as well. One carries a briefcase of money, prepared to buy heavy assault weapons from Frung.THUG 1 (left, whispering):
Donít say anything about his face. General Frung is sensitive about his looks. Everyone says thereís a bantha under that hood.FRUNG (In Huttese):
Do you have the money?THUG 1† (In Huttese):
Itís right here. But you know our deal, General. No weapons, no money. Where are the weapons?FRUNG (In Huttese):
Relax, theyíre in the shuttle. You two follow meÖ alone.
The Thugs follow Frung into the Shuttle's interior, where Frung reveals a crate.THUG 2 (In Huttese):
Wonderful, our squadron will enjoy these upgraded blasters!FRUNG:
I'm afraid that they won't even have time to view them.THUG 1 & 2:
General Frung opens the crate, and the ugly head of General Frung falls out.
In the blink of an eye, "General Frung" throws off his cloak, revealing Princess Leia Organa, leading member of the New Republic! She quickly draws out her lightsaber and cuts off the arm of the first thug. The second thug, however, is able to run away.THUG 2:
It's a sham! The jig is up! The New Republic sent a Jedi! Kill it!
The Remnant Troops surround the Shuttle, waiting for the Jedi to appear.
Once again, Princess Leia uses her Jedi speed to outsmart the troops! She beheads the nearest Stormtrooper.
The rest of the troops open fire. But the Force is strong with Leia, and she deflects their fire back at them.
Having dealt with all of the Remnant soldiers, Leia sets her sights on the thug.THUG 2:
Blast you, Jedi! I'll have to kill you myself!
The thug picks up a large staff and lunges at Leia...
The thug gains the upper hand, pushing Leia back...
The thug steps back, about to finish Leia off. But with one use of a Force Push...
Leia completely turns the tide of the battle, pushing the thug to the edge of a nearby cliff. The thug drops his staff hundreds of thousands of feet to the bottom.THUG 2:
No, please, Master Jedi! Please, leave me be! Iím just an honest bounty hunter! We thought there was a bounty on you!LEIA:
No, you were working for the Remnant. It looks like you were beginning to build a base for Remnant troops. Under the laws of the New Republic, thatís a felony. But there is a way you can avoid punishment.THUG 2:
Please, please, Iíll do anything!LEIA:
Youíll come back to Coruscant with me. Luke Skywalker will ask you some questions. Answer correctly, and you could be rewarded.THUG 2:
No! No questioning! Youíll reward me by sending me to prison!
The thug steps back and falls off of the cliff. Leia shakes her head as she watches him disappear from eyesight. Leia walks back into the Shuttle, where her pilot, Han Solo, awaits her return.HAN:
What happened out there? Are you okay? Whereís the second thug?LEIA:
I'm fine. And he killed himself.
Leia presses a button on the control panel, and Luke Skywalker, along with Admiral Dorovan Elick and Senator Tridia Forgs, appear on the viewscreen.LUKE:
Leia, Han, itís good to hear from you both. Was your mission on Briff a success?LEIA:
Well, a Remnant base was being established, with two bounty hunters overseeing the operations. One of them decided that death was better than questioning, but the other one is in the shuttle with me. You may want to prepare him a robotic arm.LUKE:
Well Iím sure we can still get some information out of him. Iíll send a squad of troops to the base and mop up any Imperials that may show up later. For now, we need you here on Coruscant. The inauguration of Mon Mothma is in a few hours. Han, how fast can you get back here?HAN:
Weíll get back safe and sound, Luke. We wonít miss Monís moment under the sun.LUKE: *chuckling*
Well, be safe. May the Force be with you.LEIA:
May the Force be with you too.
The Shuttle takes off, and heads back to Coruscant...PART 2 - A DEADLY INAUGURATION - COMING SOON!
