Episode VII: Escape from Peril
An Original Screenplay
INT. DOOM KEEP - DARTH NYX?S QUARTERS
Darth Nyx is meditating in her quarters. She sits in the middle of the room, centered in a small pool of light. Her eyes open a split second before we hear a chime.
Her viewscreen turns on, revealing Warden Kvez.
DARTH NYX (con?d)
Priority message from Governor Sate Molok of Townowi.
Put him through.
The image fizzles, replaced by the Governor. He?s a tall man wearing an elaborate hat, with many medals on the opulent robes he wears over his standard Coalition uniform.
Lady Nyx, I have excellent news.
I hope so Governor, I am not to be disturbed otherwise.
Molok, expecting her response, continues, still smiling politely.
We have reason to believe that the Skywalker children are on Townowi.
Earlier today we received reports of a thief wielding a lightsaber.
Prior to that a ship crashed in the wastelands.
Molok hits a button off screen and a hologram of the Jaren?s Dream appears in front of him.
SATE MOLOK (con?d)
The same ship that got away from you on Tatooine.
Molok takes a moment to enjoy the anger rising to Nyx?s face.
Where are they?
We don?t know. I?ve posted sentry droids, but I want to keep it quiet.
If you don?t find them shortly put the planet into Lockdown.
Isn?t that a bit rash?
My Master wants those children.
Last time we had to do that-
You have two hours.
Molok, bows his head and cuts his transmission.
INT. TOWNOWI CAVE SYSTEM - NARROW PASSAGE
Kane, Ben, Thenna, Artoo and Minch are making their way through a narrow passage. Minch, still tied to Artoo, is leading the way, with Artoo?s spotlight illuminating the cavern.
Are you sure he?s not just walking us in circles?
No, we?ve been moving upwards for a while now.
Yeah, well it?s a big mountain.
I thought Jedi were supposed to be patient?
Kane glares at her.
You seem to know an awful lot about the Jedi.
I mean cause you?re not one.
The three walk in silence for a moment.
Listen Master Skywalker, not all of us have the freedom to choose our paths in life.
The two of them stare at each other as the group enters a new chamber.
