ROGUE ONE:
A STAR WARS STORY

Jyn wakes up in an Imperial prison cell. Her cellmate snores loudly on the bunk opposite. She wipes her face with a cloth and stares through the bars.

STORMTROOPER:
Check in, security. Cell block 4227. 4227.

A stormtrooper walks past, checking on the cell. Cuts to a large asteroid with a trading outpost built on top of it.

RING OF KAFRENE:
TRADING OUTPOST

A busy street is full of people and aliens. Cassian Andor pushes through the crowd and then ducks into an alleyway where he meets Tivik, an informant.

TIVIK:
I was about to leave.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
I came as fast as I could.

TIVIK:
I have to get back on board. Walk with me.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
Back to Jedha?

TIVIK:
They’ll leave without me!

CASSIAN ANDOR:
Easy. You have news from Jedha? Come on.

TIVIK:
An Imperial pilot, one of the cargo drivers. He defected yesterday. He’s telling people they’re making a weapon. The kyber crystals, that’s what they’re for.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
What kind of weapon?

TIVIK:
Look, I have to go.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
What kind of weapon?

TIVIK:
A planet killer. That’s what he called it.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
A planet killer?

TIVIK:
Someone named Erso sent him. Some old friend of Saw’s.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
Galen Erso? Was it?

TIVIK:
I don’t know! They were looking for Saw when we left.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
Who else knows this?

TIVIK:
I have no idea! It’s all falling apart. Saw’s right, there’re spies everywhere.

A pair of stormtroopers appears in the alleyway.

STORMTROOPER 1:
What’s all this?

STORMTROOPER 2:
Come on, let’s see some scandocs.

CASSIAN ANDOR:
Yeah, of course. My gloves?

Cassian pulls a blaster and kills the stormtroopers.

TIVIK:
No! What’ve you done?

STORMTROOPER 3:
Troopers down, section 9.

Cassian quickly nods towards a wall lined with sticking out wires and tubes.
