THEED - POWER GENERATOR PIT - DAY
laser sword battle continues on the small catwalk around
the vast power pit. DARTH MAUL kicks OBI-WAN off one
of the ramps and he falls several levels. QUI-GON knocks
the DARK LORD off another ramp, and he lands hard on
a ramp two levels below. QUI-GON jumps down after him.
The DARK LORD backs away along the catwalk into a small
door. QUI-GON follows as OBI-WAN runs to catch up.
THEED - POWER GENERATOR ELECRIC BEAM - HALLWAY
SITH LORD, followed by QUI-GON, enters a long hallway
filled with a series of deadly rays that go on and off
in a pulsing pattern that shoots down the corridor every
minute or so. DARTH MAUL makes it down several walls
of deadly rays before they close. QUI-GON is one wall
away from the DARK LORD. OBI-WAN is just starting into
it and is five walls way from DARTH MAUL.
The JEDI must wait until the next pulse to advance down
the corridor. OBI-WAN is impatient and paces, waiting
for the wall of rays to open. QUI-GON sits and meditates.
The SITH LORD tries to patch up his wounds.
THEED - PALACE - HALLWAY TO THRONE ROOM
window in the hallway blasts apart. PADME, CAPTAIN PANAKA,
and HER SOLDIERS climb into the hallway. They head for
the door to the throne roo. Suddenly, two DESTROYER
DROIDS skitter in front of the door. PADME turns around
and sees TWO MORE appear at the far end of the hallway,
trapping them in the middle.
PADME throws down her pistol and turns to CAPTAIN PANAKA.
: Throw down your weapons. They win this round.
CAPT. PANAKA : But we can't....
PADME : Captain, I said throw down your weapons.
PANAKA and HIS MEN throw down their weapons.

The GUNGANS flee as fast as they can. JAR JAR is blown
off his KAADU and lands on one of the tank guns. A GUNGAN
WARRIOR signals JAR JAR to jump off. JAR JAR is afraid.
The gun swings around trying to knock JAR JAR off. JAR
JAR hangs from the tank barrel as it moves along. Finally,
he jumps onto a KAADU behind a GUNGAN WARRIOR. EXPLOSIONS
from the tank fire are everywhere. It is chaos.
