(Balmorra, 18 hours after the Rebel hijacking of the Imperial Holonet)
(Balmorra seemed for centuries to be constantly in a state of rebellion against it’s various galactic overlords, however this time seemed to be different. A ragtag group of Balmorran Insurgents traded blaster fire with Imperial Stormtroopers on a strategic bridge to one of the planets renowned weapons manufacturing plants. Despite their motivation, the Imperial weaponry was steadily pushing the rebels back, threatening to quash yet another revolt.)
Balmorran Fighter- Blast it! We can’t fight them all off! Where are those reinforcements?
Balmorran Captain- They’ll come! I never have met a Jedi that wasn’t true to his word.
Balmorran Fighter- Well if they don’t show up quick we’re all going to – grenade!
(The grenade exploded, the Balmorran Fighter falling to the ground)
Balmorran Captain- Sanju! No!
(The Captain knelt down next to the fallen fighter)
Balmorran Captain- Troydi give me some covering fire, he’s wounded but still breathing!
Gulio- Allow us Captain.
Balmorran Captain- Jedi! I knew you’d come, I-
Gulio- Just get your troops to safety Captain, we’ll deal with the Empire.
(The Captain nodded understandingly, motioning for her soldiers to retreat)
Alinta- Why is it every time I come to this planet it’s in some kind of revolt or another?
Gulio- I’m just glad they’re on our side this time. The Balmorran Arms factories could give us the edge in the fight against the Empire.
Alinta- Then let’s show these Imperials how we Jedi fight.
(The Jedi jumped into the fray, Gulio launching a Stromtrooper off the bridge while Alinta blocked a blaster shot)
(The Stormtrooper fell down below the bridge, as Agent Iso waded through the river placing thermal detonator charges on the bridge supports while Bill anchored her to the shore with a cable cord)
Bill- Dang! Stromtroopers falling from the sky is never a good sign. Finish up them charges Iso! I got a feeling that our Jedi folk are in some sort of trouble.
Iso- Going as fast as I can Bill! There! That’s the last charge!
Bill- Good! Let’s get back up top and blow this thing!
(Bill and Iso clamored up onto the bridge as Gulio and Alinta continued to fend off the Imperial forces)
Gulio- About time you got here! These Imperials aren’t as easy to defeat as battle droids!
Bill- Hold your Banthas Son! We’re just about ready to give them Imps quite a surprise!
(An Imperial Technician placed down a repeater gun, aiming it at the Jedi)
Imperial Technician- Let’s see you beat Balmorra Arm’s most advanced turret yet Jedi!
(The repeater gun opened fire, Gulio and Alinta reeling to block the deadly laser fire)
Gulio- Any second now!
Iso- Alright…select frequency and…done! Everybody get to cover, now!
(The detonator charges received the signal, flashing red as they exploded)
(The Rebels slowly looked up at the carnage, the supports clattering into the river below and a gaping hole in the center span of the bridge)
Bill- Now that’s how you blow up a bridge!
Alinta- The Balmorrans should be safe for the time being. The Empire doesn’t have the resources to put into rebuilding the bridge, and the Balmorran heavy weapons should keep them from trying to.
(The Rebels turned around as a figure of an Imperial Sniper stealthily made his way onto the ruins of the bridge)
Gulio- Indeed, the more resources tied down on Balmorra the better. We just might stand a fighting chance against the Empire.
(Meanwhile, Commodore Revees, Maxwell, and Ben made their way hastily along the side of the bridge)
Revees- Blast that old starship! I thought we’d never get here.
Ben- There they are ahead sir!
Revees- Then we’re not too late. We’ve got to get them to safety while we still can.
(The Sniper took aim at Gulio as the Rebels turned in surprise at the sight of Commodore Revees)
Revees- Gulio look out!
Gulio- Commodore! What are you doing here?
(Revees’s eyes grew wide with terror at the sight of the sniper. Iso’s eyes followed Reeves’s and she took aim upon seeing the Imperial)
(Iso’s blasts arrived seconds too late as a shot rang out and Revees gasped and fell to the ground)
