1A. INT. ROCK LEDGE - SIETCH TABR - NIGHT

BLACK:

FADE IN to the dark eyes of the mysterious face of

the REVEREND MOTHER RAMALLO, who sits against smooth

black rock. Her eyes are deep blue-within-blue and

her skin is a haunting translucent white. Her voice

ECHOES as if in a great cavern.

REVEREND MOTHER RAMALLO

We are the secret of the Universe.

RESPONSE OF TWENTY THOUSAND VOICES

Bi-la kaifa.

REVEREND MOTHER RAMALLO

We are the secret of the Universe. We know

of spice...the spice called melange...the

greatest treasure in the Universe. It

exists on only one planet - ours Arrakis,

Dune. We know of spice and the Bene

Gesserit sisterhood's selective breeding

plan of ninety generations to produce the

Kwisatz Haderach, the one the spice will

awaken.

RESPONSE OF TWENTY THOUSAND VOICES

Bi-la kaifa.

REVEREND MOTHER RAMALLO

And now the prophecy...

Silence...then a powerful low organ NOTE resounding

in the cavernous space.

REVEREND MOTHER RAMALLO (CONT'D)

He will come...the voice from the outer

world, bringing the holy war, the Jihad,

which will cleanse the Universe and bring

us out of darkness. He will have been born

of a Bene Gesserit mother.

The Reverend Mother continues speaking of the

Prophecy, but we do not hear it. The huge wind organ

BLOWS louder and louder, obscuring her voice.

The picture FADES.
