War begins! After the Jedi rescue of OBI WAN KENOBI, ANAKIN SKYWALKER, and PADME AMIDALA, and their subsequent rescue by the new Grand Army of the Republic, the forces of the Republic battle COUNT DOOKU'S Sepratist forces in hopes of stopping the war before it begins.
Jedi Knight Gulio Marcus and the Arc Trooper Squad Upsilon prepare to assist Jedi Alinta Knight's troopers secure the entrance to the Geonosian Spire hoping to capture Dooku before he escapes...
Gulio:Well, they're in quite a scrape down there...Commander prepare the grapplers I'm going to contact Master Alinta and see if we can be of assistance.
(The clones prepare the grapplers as Gulio takes out his comlink)
(As Alinta is fighting her comlink crackles)
Gulio: *static* Alinta, Alinta Do you copy over?
Alinta: Yes I can hear you...wait is this Gulio Marcus!?
Gulio: Sure Is! Can we be of any assistance?
Alinta: Gulio I haven't seen you since our days under Master Boris at the Temple...Look Out!
(A sonic cannon blasts a clone)
Alinta: Yes, Gulio you help would be most appreciated.
Gulio: Very well, we are on the massif above you...we'll be down soon.
Alinta: Just hurry Gulio! (To Clones) Alright let's get some covering fire for our boys!
Gulio: Wait a....STAP's incoming! Our arrival might be a little late...
(Gulio leaps at the STAPs as an ARC trooper fires at another)
(Gulio grabs control of the STAP and force-kicks the Battle Droid off)
Battle Droid: AHHHHHHHHH!
(Down below the droid lands atop another droid near Alinta)
Alinta: Oh, Gulio...
(However the sonic cannon is pointed right at her)
Battle Droid: Die Jedi!
Gulio: Look Out!!!
(Gulio leaps away as the STAP careens into the sonic cannon and remaining droids)
Gulio: *muttering* Well, I've had worst landings...
Alinta: Gulio watch out!!!
(Gulio jumps out of the way just as the spider droid blasts a clone)
Gulio: Take this you mechanical abomination!
(He slices off it's cannon as Alinta leaps toward him)
(And impales the spider droid right in it's dome head before lunging to Gulio)
Gulio: Alinta! Aren't you a sight for sore eyes!
Alinta: Gulio you certainty haven't lost you're charm, It's a shame we have to meet under such conditions...
Gulio: Not so! Which droid will you have?
(Just then Commander Jag swings in shooting a Super Battle Droid)
(Gulio skillfully blocks a blaster shot back at a battle droid and force-pushes the last droid)
Gulio: Very nice Jag, your timing is impeccable!
Jag: Thank You Sir!
Alinta: Now that this is over, why are you here Gulio?
Gulio: I was sent here to aid you in capturing Count Dooku...
Alinta: What happened to Master Boris?
Gulio: We're not sure...His shuttle was shot down but I did not sense his death...
Gulio: But we cannot wait any longer we must attack the Spire now or risk Count Dooku escaping and this battle catapulting the entire galaxy into war...
