(Former-Republic Intelligence Complex Zeta-Zero, concurrent with the Rebel attack on Obroa-Skai)
(Meredith and Kalin dashed through the facility, blasting at the merciless and semmingle endless horde of genocide-security droids as the computerized defense system taunted them)
Computer Defense System- Resistance is futile! You will be killed!
(The agants ducked back into a doorway, the blaster bolts firing after them)
Kalin- Blast! At this rate we won't even be able to activate the device before they blast us into oblivion!
(Meredith's face set into a tight grimace as she stepped back and blasted the door controls)
Kalin- What are you doing?! That's our only way out!
(The heavy blast door slammed shut behind them, the barrage of blaster bolts still banging into it)
Meredith- I think, Major, that we will not be escaping this time. We must buy ourselves enough time to activate the device.
(The door gave a mechanical groan as the droids began pounding against it)
Kalin- Quickly, this will not hold them forever.
(They ran into the control room of the complex, Kalin blasting the door contols)
Computer Defense System- Intruders detected within the control room. Initiating emergency lockdown procedures. This will be your grave intruders!
(Meredith ran over to the computer, a stream of numbers flashed across the display)
Meredith- Blast! We're too late, it is in lockdown. I have an override code but it will take some time to break the system.
(Another bang came from the door)
Meredith- Time I do not think that we have.
(Obroa-Skai, the Monastery of Knowledge)
(Boris, Bartolo, Zita, and Desmond walked through the deserted halls of the monastery, the only sounds being the echo of their footsteps and the moan of a cold wind whirling through the halls)
Zita- I know some monks take a vow of silence but this... this is not natural.
(They stopped at a shattered window, a table broken before it)
Boris- I cannot sense the monks or our delegates. There is only a great darkness.
Desmond- Hmph. And monks don't generally break their own windows. Something bad happened here.
(Suddenly a haunting laugh rang out through the monastery halls)
Voice- You fools! You have come to your own demise! Kill them!
(Out of nowhere, Imperial stealth troopers appeared, opening fire on the Jedi)
Zita- Look out! Stealth troops!
(Zita quickly fired, blasting one of the troops)
(Bartolo deflected a bolt back at a trooper)
Bartolo- I may be able to guess who is behind this now.
(Boris swiftly spun around, decapitating the last trooper)
Boris- These soldiers are from Imperial Intelligence, only they would have access to this kind of cloaking technology.
Desmond- But how did they find us out? This was supposedly conducted with the utmost of secrecy!
Boris- I do not know, but we are not leaving without finding out. The conference hall should be down this passageway.
(They entered the hall to a gruesome sight. The bodies of the delegates and their guards littered the ground.)
Boris- Senator Ralone, Ambassador Nochuk...no.
(From the darkness, Prophet Uzov stepped forth, pushing a monk before him)
Uzov- Jedi, welcome. I am Prophet of the Darkside Uzov. I believe your are acquainted with our friend, Ekin.
(Ekin managed a weak smile at Boris)
Uzov- Now where are your manners? Bow to our guests!
(The lightning crackled through Ekin's body, sending him to the floor. Zita ran past Boris, her weapon raised)
Zita- You monster! There is no honor in killing innocents!
Boris- Zita wait!
(Uzov grasped Zita in a force choke, flinging her blaster away from her)
Uzov- Innocents?! These traitors committed high treason against the Empire, the penalty of which is death!
(Uzov activated his lightsaber as he threw Zita across the chamber, slamming her painfully into a table)
Uzov- A fate which all enemies of the Empire will suffer!
(Boris leaped onto the desk, quickly moving to parry Uzov's attack as the Prophet sent an electrified chair flying at Desmond)
Boris- Who are you, how did you even gain knowledge of this meeting?
Uzov- Foolish Jedi! The Prophets see everything, and Imperial Intelligence is the means by which I carry out the will of the Emperor.
(Uzov reached out his hand, exploding the holoterminal and sending Boris flying back)
Uzov- And the will of the Emperor is that you should die!
(Uzov thrusted his saberstaff at Bartolo, who parried it back)
Bartolo- You cannot possibly hope to defeat all of us, there are three of us-
(Uzov grasped Bartolo's neck flinging him back over the desk as he turned to face Desmond)
Uzov- Mere numbers. The trick, Jedi, is to divide and conquer.
Desmond- Oh I see. All I have to do is divide your head from your body and I'll win right?
(The Prophet laughed as he unleashed an electrified force blast into Desmond's chest)
(Uzov held out his hands, paralyzing the Jedi in a stasis field of dark energy)
Uzov- Enough of this charade. This will be a glorious day for the Empire. Now comes the death of the leadership of this nascent rebellion and of the last of the Jedi. The first to die, will be this collaborator.
(He pushed Ekin down before him)
(Zita rustled from where Uzov had thrown her, and drew her blade)
Uzov- Look on Jedi, see as this innocent, as you would call it, dies before you, and know that there is nothing you can do to stop me. Thus the fate that awaits traitors, and all who would oppose the Emperor!
Zita- Not if I have anything to say about that you monster!
(Uzov turned around in disbelief as Zita drove her blade into his chest)
(The Prophet dropped to the ground, laughing sinisterly)
Uzov- You...you think this a victory? This is a false victory...events are already irreversibly in motion. My plans...will go forward...your rebellion is doomed. Doomed!
(Uzov cackled as he breathed his last, his body disappearing in a pyre of dark fire)
Zita- Good riddance.
Bartolo- Indeed, but what plans could he have been referring to I wonder?
(Suddenly a shrill beeping came from a holocommunicator)
Desmond- Boris you may want to come over here and see this...
(The banging had grown steadily louder on the control room door, as Meredith gazed into her holocommunicator)
Meredith- Last message of former-Director of Republic Intelligence. Boris if you can hear me, I have activated the signal and sent a code for all remaining agents to contact you on Duxn. We have run out of all ammunition and the doors will soon be breached.
(Another bang came from the hallway and more blaster fire)
Meredith- Boris, since you had saved me and even before, during the Clone Wars even, there was something that...attracted me to you, that forced me to go on this last mission, that made me stay in spite of everything. Boris, I confess, I love-
(Suddenly the door imploded open, Fitze marched in flanked by Imperial Intelligence operatives)
Fitze- Why hello there Meredith, fancy seeing you here.
Meredith- Fitze?! How did you find this place?
Fitze- The Prophets of the Dark Side know all my dear, and now, thanks to you, I finally have the location of all my missing agents, and I have you. Stun them!
(The operatives opened fire, sending Meredith and Kalin to the floor)
Vugal- Sir, it seems that before we came, the director had erased the contents of the computer. We can reconstruct them from the transmission we intercepted but it will take time.
Fitze- Blast it all! This has gone on for long enough! Take these two back to Coruscant! I want them tortured for information and executed!
(Fitze picked up the still transmitting holocommunicator)
Fitze- And what is this? Jedi...on Obroa-Skai? Then the Prophet... is dead. You Jedi may have your victory but it will not last! Your friends will be executed for their crimes! I will honor my lord's last command, this rebellion will be destroyed!
(He turned off the holocommunicator and muttered to himself)
Fitze- My life depends on it...
(The transmission ended, Boris laid his head in anguish on the desk)
Bartolo- Boris I- I'm so sorry.
Boris- Do not be Bartolo. It may be against the Code for a Jedi to love, but I will not allow these two to die at the hands of the Empire.
Desmond- What do you suggest we do then?
Boris- We have this list. It is time we unified the rebellion. Let us leave this horrid place. Ekin you may return to Duxn with us, it is time for us to strike back at the Empire.
