A light wind whips at him as he adjusts several valves on a

large battered moisture vaporator which sticks out of the desert floor

much like an oil pipe with valves. He is aided by a beatup tread-robot

with six claw arms. The little robot appears to be barely functioning

and moves with jerky motions. A bright sparkle in the morning sky

catches Luke's eye and he instinctively grabs a pair of

electrobinoculars from his utility belt. He stands transfixed for a

few moments studying the heavens, then dashed toward his dented,

crudely repaired Landspeeder (an auto-like transport that travels a few

feet above the ground on a magnetic-field). He motions for the tiny

robot to follow him.

LUKE:

Hurry up! Come with me! What

are you waiting for?! Get in gear!

The robot scoots around in a tight circle, stops short, and

smoke begins to pour out of every joint. Luke throws his arms up in

disgust. Exasperated, the young farm boy jumps into his Landspeeder

leaving the smoldering robot to hum madly.

INT. REBEL BLOCKADE RUNNER - MAIN HALLWAY

The awesome, seven-foot-tall Dark Lord of the Sith makes his way into

the blinding light of the main passageway. This is Darth Vader, right

hand of the Emperor. His face is obscured by his flowing black robes

and grotesque breath mask, which stands out next to the fascist white

armored suits of the Imperial stormtroopers.

Everyone instinctively backs away from the imposing warrior and a

deathly quiet sweeps through the Rebel troops. Several of the Rebel

troops break and run in a frenzied panic.

INT. REBEL BLOCKADE RUNNER

A woman's hand puts a card into an opening in Artoo's dome.

Artoo makes beeping sounds.
