wall of the deadly rays turn away, and OBI-WAN starts
running toward QUI-GON and the DARK LORD. When the wall
between QUI-GON and DARTH MAUL opens, QUI-GON is in
a split second fighting the DARK LORD with a ferocity
not seen before. They move into the area at the end
of the corridor called the melting pit, a small area
that is mostly made up of a deep hole.
The electron ray gates begin to close. OBI-WAN tries
to make it to the melting pit but is caught one gate
short. He slides to a stop just before he hits the deadly
QUI-GON and DARTH MAUL battle around the melting pit
as a frustrated OBI-WAN watches.
DARTH MAUL cathces QUI-GON off guard. The SITH makes
a quick move, bashes his lightsaber handle into QUI-GON's
chin, and runs him through. QUI-GON slumps to the floor
in a heap.

THEED - POWER GENERATOR - MELTING PIT
screams as the pulsing electron gate opens, and the
SITH LORD attacks him. The DARK LORD is relentless in
his assault on the young JEDI.

at each other as they fight. DARTH MAUL seems to have
the upper hand as OBI-WAN grows weary.
DARTH MAUL catches OBI-WAN off guard, and the JEDI slips
into a melting pit. He is barely able to hold onto a
nozzle on the side of the pit. DARTH MAUL grin evilly
at OBI-WAN as he kicks OBI-WAN's lightsaber down the
The SITH LORD smiles as he goes in for the kill. At
the last moment, OBI-WAN jumps up out of the pit, calls
QUI-GON's lightsaber to hi, throwing DARTH MAUL off.
The young JEDI swings with a vengeance, cutting the
SITH down. DARTH MAUL falls into the melting pit to
OBI-WAN rushes over to QUI-GON, who is dying.
: Master! Master!
QUI-GON : It is too late...It's...
OBI-WAN : No!
