No answer.

NAVIGATOR:

(finally)

The answer is within the problem...

10. INT. HALLWAY - EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

Outside the Emperor's chamber the Reverend Mother

sits, her eyes closed, straining.

11. INT. THRONE ROOM - EMPEROR'S PALACE - REVEREND

MOTHER'S MENTAL IMAGE - NIGHT

A very blurred scene of the Emperor with the Guild

Navigator. She is not getting the English version

but a much different language version which is

fascinating to listen to. A lilting, sing-song

monologue.

12. INT. THRONE ROOM - EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

NAVIGATOR:

I see two Great Houses -- House Atreides,

House Harkonnen -- feuding... I see you

behind it.

EMPEROR:

Yes.

The Navigator breathes the spice-gas heavily and

swishes gently in his tank.

NAVIGATOR:

You must share with us.

--

EMPEROR:

The Atreides house is building a secret

army!... using a technique unknown to

us... a technique involving sound. The

Duke is becoming more popular in the

Landsraad... he could threaten me.... I

have ordered House Atreides to occupy

Arrakis to mine the spice... thus

replacing their enemies the Harkonnens....

House Atreides will not refuse because of

the tremendous power they think they will

gain. Then, at an appointed time Baron

Harkonnen will return to Arrakis and

launch a sneak attack on House Atreides...

I have promised the Baron five legions of

my Sardaukar terror troops.

NAVIGATOR:

So the Harkonnens will rid you of House

Atreides...

EMPEROR:

Yes.

13. INT. HALLWAY - EMPEROR'S PALACE - NIGHT

Outside, the Reverend Mother is seeing the scene

mentally. She suddenly sees and flinches.

14. INT. THRONE ROOM - EMPEROR'S PALACE - REVEREND

MOTHER'S MENTAL IMAGE - NIGHT

The Guild Navigator turns toward her and comes very

close to her. We hear the Navigator speak to her.
