Episode VII: Escape from Peril
An Original Screenplay
The Jarenís Dream rockets through hyperspace.
INT. JARENíS DREAM - COCKPIT
Ben and Kane are sitting at the controls, mulling over data screens.
The damage isnít nearly as bad as I thought.
Yeah. The hyperdrive is slow, but itíll get us to Kharam.
We should be going after dad.
Where do we even start? At least home at the Temple weíll have some resources to work with.
Kane sighs, staring out into hyperspace.
Great Jedi we turned out to be. Couldnít even save our own father.
Donít worry, weíll find him. Iím going to the lounge, you coming?
Guess I might as well.
Kane grumbles, following Ben out of the cockpit.
INT. JARENíS DREAM - HALLWAY
On the way to the lounge Ben and Kane walk past a reptilian creature hidden in the shadows. He slinks out after they pass and heads into the cockpit.
EXT. SPACE Ė DOOM KEEP
The Coalition Prison Station, Doom Keep, hangs silently in the darkness of space. It is gothic, black, and heavy.
INT. DOOM KEEP Ė NYXíS QUARTERS
Darth Nyx stands rigidly in the center of her sparse quarters. The room is dark, open, and hexagonally shaped. Barely seen on the walls are several types of melee weapons. Her eyes are transfixed on a viewscreen, showing a tactical readout on the planet of Kharam. The viewscreen is interrupted but the face of WARDEN KVEZ, a heavy-set, stern man.
Yes, Warden Kvez?
Lady Nyx, the prisoner has been incarcerated.
Good. Has the serum been administered?
Of course, mílady.
Excellent. Screen off.
The screen turns off and Nyx bows to one knee.
DARTH NYX (coníd)
Holobeams activate from four corners, forming a hologram field in front of her. Itís dense, and flickering, with heavy interference. In the depth of the image the shadowy, hooded, face of DARTH SECUTOS can barely be glimpsed.
Yes, Lady Nyx?
I have captured Skywalker.
The father is unimportant to my plans-
I am aware, mílord. I suspect the sons will come to rescue-
Alert all Coalition forces. The sons must be found.
I will not tolerate further failure.
Secutos cuts the communication.
