He is here… Obi-Wan Kenobi! What makes you think so? A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master. Surely he must be dead by now. Don’t underestimate the power of the Force. The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that’s left of their religion. Yes. Governor Tarkin, we have an emergency alert in detention block A A-twenty-three. The princess! Put all sections on alert!

Luke! Luke! Luke! Hey! Hey! I knew you’d come back! I just knew it! Well, I wasn’t gonna let you get all the credit and take all the reward. Hey, I knew there was more to you than money. Oh, no! Oh, my! Artoo! Can you hear me? Say something! You can repair him, can’t you? We’ll get to work on him right away. You must repair him! Sir, if any of my circuits or gears will help, I’ll gladly donate them. He’ll be all right.

They’ve coming in! Three marks at two ten. I’ll take them myself! Cover me! Yes, sir. I can’t maneuver! Stay on target. We’re too close. Stay on target! Loosen up! Gold Five to Red Leader… Lost Tiree, lost Dutch. I copy, Gold Five. They came from behind…. We’ve analyzed their attack, sir, and there is a danger. Should I have your ship standing by? Evacuate? In out moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances! Rebel base, three minutes and closing. Red Group, this is Red Leader.

And what of the Rebellion? If the Rebels have obtained a complete technical readout of this station, it is possible, however unlikely, that they might find a weakness and exploit it. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they’ve obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it!

Did you find any droids? No, sir. If there were any on board, they must also have jettisoned. Send a scanning crew on board. I want every part of this ship checked. Yes, sir. I sense something…a presence I haven’t felt since… Get me a scanning crew in here on the double. I want every part of this ship checked! Boy, it’s lucky you had these compartments. I use them for smuggling. I never thought I’d be smuggling myself in them. This is ridiculous. Even if I could take off, I’d never get past the tractor beam.

I hope the old man got that tractor beam out if commission, or this is going to be a real short trip. Okay, hit it! We’re coming up on the sentry ships. Hold ’em off! Angle the deflector shields while I charge up the main guns! I can’t believe he’s gone. There wasn’t anything you could have done. Come on, buddy, we’re not out of this yet! You in, kid? Okay, stay sharp!

We count thirty Rebel ships, Lord Vader. But they’re so small they’re evading our turbo-lasers! We’ll have to destroy them ship to ship. Get the crews to their fighters. Luke, let me know when you’re going in. I’m on my way in now… Watch yourself! There’s a lot of fire coming from the right side of that deflection tower. I’m on it. Squad leaders, we’ve picked up a new group of signals. Enemy fighters coming your way.
