Vugal- ...and it seems the search for the missing former director and other Shadowland inmates has stalled as well.
Fitze- This is unacceptable Major! Insurgents are becoming increasingly brazen and open. First Moff Kane's capture, now a database attack on Polis Massa. If the Emperor-
Imperial Technician- Sir, we are receiving an unidentified signal broadcasting over the entire Holonet. It does not appear to be Imperial registered.
Vugal- Patch it through, now!
(Viewscreens across the galaxy flashed to life as an image of Commodore Revees took over the Imperial communications network)
Revees- Greetings people of the galaxy. I'm sorry our broadcasting droid seems to have some "technical issues". I am Commodore Revees.
Revees- I like many of you remember vividly the Clone Wars which I served in. I had the upmost hope in the Republic, in the ideals for which it stood and I was and am willing to die for them. Yet when I see what our Republic has become, what the Empire is, I knew I could not go on serving it as I had.
Revees- What you see on your screens, and is being uploaded into the Holonet as we speak, is a systematic documentation of every illicit and vile thing that the Empire has done, including a special conversation we recorded concerning a Moff Kane, and eyewitness accounts of the purge of Imperial Intelligence...
Fitze- Impossible! Shut this down! Stop this transmission!
Revees- This is just a sample of the extortions, purges and massacres, blackmail, and propaganda that the Empire has been perpetrating for years across the entire galaxy, a far cry from the benevolent Empire that it has portrayed itself to be.
Imperial Technician- Sir, I can’t shut it down, the encryption-
Fitze- Blast it all! Triangulate the source of the message and bomb out the station!
Revees- However, I do not simply bring a message of despair but one of hope. Together we can throw off the shackls of tyrrany placed upon us by the Empire, together we can create an Alliance to Restore the Republic!
(Revees stood up and tore down the Imperial emblem, replacing it with the one of the Republic)
Bill- Sir, we have to leave! Bombers are incoming!
Revees- Even now the Empire moves against us, but keep up the hope and ideals of the Republic and we cannot fail! May the Force save us all!
(Fitze watched with despair as Revees and the Rebel soldiers rushed out of the view of the camera before the sound of bombers cut off the transmission)
Imperial Technician- Sir, the Emperor is requesting an explanation for what just happened. What shall I tell him?
(Fitze nervously brought a shaking cigar to his mouth)
Fitze- Inform the Emperor that I will arrive personally to account for the situation…and to take full responsibility for my failure.
