(At last the resession is over, the Galatic Senate has
gained full control of the galaxy and is a stable government
once again under Chancellor Brogherek. However, many systems
have fallen to the Dark Side and remain under Sith control.

After the death of Darth Firdous the Sith Lord Darth Kasus
has ducked into hiding for many years. General Castell, a
bounty hunter, has taken rule of the Dark Side in hope to
finally unite it and destroy the Jedi.

The Jedi Council has gained many members including Han
Skywalker. Baran is rumored to be the most powerful Jedi in
exsistence, he and Commander Kardon lead an attack on
Cathar, a planet under Sith rule of which they hope to gain
back and once again bring order to...)

together down a pathway with Galactic soldiers behind them)

side...out of no where blaster rays attack the soldiers and
Baran takes out his lightsaber)
                                                            
(Kardon and Galactic soldiers duck for cover from the
blasters but Baran remains in the open blocking them
effortlessly and stopping some with the force)

Master Skywalker!

(The soldier is grabbed by Kardon and pulled back)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Stand fast son, this is what Baran
does best...he'll be fine.
                                                            
(Kardon smiles and then watches Baran)
                                                            
(Baran does a few nifty moves and blasters cease after a
while)

                       BARAN
      (To Soldiers)
Sector clear! Move out!
                                                            
(Baran motions for the soldiers to press on)
                                                            
(The soldiers get up from cover and move in formation)

      (To Himself)
That's unbelievable...
                                                            
(Kardon joins Baran at the head of the formation)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
Was it really as easy as it
looked?
                                                            
(Baran without ceasin to look ahead, raises his head and
smiles)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Well, it's getting easier,
Commander...
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
You never cease to amaze me Baran,
afterall you know, my wife
disapproved of me returning to
service to help gain back these
systems.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Is that right? What made her agree
with your decision?
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
I told her that I would be serving
under you.

and then a blaster comes close to Baran)

woods!
                                                            
(Soldiers uneasily get back on their feet and Baran blocks
more blasters)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Soldiers)
Go now! Alpha Squad flank to the
left! Bravo Squad take sector
three! Commander, you're going
with me!
                                                            
(The group does as told and they charge at the woods, many
hand battles take place between Galactic Soldiers and Dark
Guards)
                                                            
(Baran makes his way easily to a hidden base which works his
way around to find General Castell and some guards plotting
their escape)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Gen. Castell)
I thought I'd never see the day.
The ever so famous General Castell
leaving the grounds of a battle
field? And without saying goodbye?
                                                            
(Castell stops dead in his tracks and turns to Baran)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Baran)
Well if it isn't Baran
Skywalker...I didn't know the
council sent little boys on
missions as important as this...
                                                            
(Castell glances at his darkguards as they form their rank.)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Guards)
Kill him...
                                                            
(The guards take out their weapons and walk towards Baran)
                                                            
(Baran smiles, shakes his head and takes out his lightsaber
and bows down to the guards to have them attack him)
                                                            
(The Dark Guards run at him and Baran takes one out right
off the bat and perceeds to kill them with ease)
                                                            
(After Baran is done with the guards he cant find Castell
anywhere but does not pursue him)

(Kardon enters the scene)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
Baran, we have secured all
sectors. The Sith are fleeing from
their posts. We have fully
regained the planet.
                                                            
(Kardon looks down at all the dead guards)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
What happened here?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
I walked in on General Castell
making his retreat...instead of
facing me he sent his guards to
kill me while he packed up and
made his getaway at their expense.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Baran)
The General is a coward as most
Dark Side believers are. Anyway
I've contacted all the reserve
platoons and have informed them of
our success. They should be
arriving soon to help us clean up
this mess.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Very good my old friend, I
couldn't have done this without
you. The Dark Side better watch
their back with us as a double
threat.
                                                            
(Baran and Kardon smile and walk away)

frustration)
                                                            
(Darth Kasus enters from the shadows and scares Castell)
                                                            

5.

                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
OH! You must forgive me my lord, I
didn't see you there and you
startled me....
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
What news from the front do you
have for me General?
                                                            
(Castell sits and pours himself a drink)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
There is nothing to report. But
Cathar was taken by the Republic
today sire.
                                                            
(Kasus turns away from General Castell.)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
You lost us Cathar!? I am
seriously concerned with how you
are dealing with this war General.
If I were you I would be
frightened for my job...or life.
                                                            
(General Castell looks up scared)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Of course, no, no, please forgive
me my lord. But you see it wasn't
my fault...Not only are these
soldiers dismal to say the least
but the Senate sent Baran
Skywalker and....
                                                            
(Kasus turns around and interupts Castell.)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Baran Skywalker was on the
system??
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Well, Y-Yes sir.
                                                            

6.

                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Was he the only Jedi on the
planet?
                                                            
(Castell nods his head and takes a drink)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
I see, and how did he fair against
our onslaught? Tell me everything.
                                                            
(General shakes his head in disbelief)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
(Sigh)...He is incredible Master,
he does things I never knew were
possible through the force, his
skills are unbelievable, we didn't
stand a chance. I mean he took out
my best guards like nothing, I had
to sacrifice them just so I could
retreat to safety.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To himself)
...excellent...
                                                            
(Castell looks confused)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Believe me my Lord it is not
excellent. It is only a matter of
time before the council makes
Baran a Master. Once he is named
he will have the power to destroy
us with ease.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Oh, I think there is no need for
concern yet. We are still in good
shape. Yes tis true that we are
losing systems to the Republic
faster than we had planned but if
Baran is indeed as powerful as you
say he is, then maybe...maybe it
is time he realizes his destiny...
                                                            
(Kasus laughs evily and walks away. Castell looks up in
confusion and horror)

quietly goes over and brushes her hair out of her face and
whispers softly)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
Loren...
                                                            
(Loren stirrs in her name a bit and slowly opens her eyes)
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Robert...?
                                                            
(Lorens eyes fully open at the shock of seeing her husband)
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Robert! You're home!!
                                                            
(Loren awakes quickly and jumps into Kardons arms kissing
him and hugging him)
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Oh, I'm so glad your home! Sit

(Loren and Kardon take a seat at the dinner table)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
Well, we gained back Cathar, which
makes that 3 planets just this
week that we have successfully
taken.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
That's incredible, you guy's are
doing so well and going so fast
things should be back to normal in
no time.
                                                            

8.

                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
We are making immense progress
ever since the Jedi Council has
appointed Baran the lead position
in the war.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Baran or no Baran I still do not
want you to go back. I die
everytime you go into war. Your
not the young commander you once
were Robert.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
There is nothing to worry about
Loren. There is no one in this
galaxy better to protect me than
Baran. He's my best friend he wont
let me down. Trust me.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
I dont care. I dont want you going
back.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
I have to go back I made a
committment to the Republic, to
the Jedi Council and to a friend.
I cant just abandon them.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
No, Robert, please. Resign, leave
the war. Let Baran and the Jedi
fight. You dont need to return.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
I have to. I made a promise.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
And what about the promise to your
wife. You said the war would be
over for you when our son is born.
                                                            
(Loren looks down and runs her hands on her stomach where
their child is being born)
                                                            

9.

(Kardon walks over and puts his hand on hers)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
That is a promise that I will not
break. Our son will not grow up
without a father.
                                                            
(Kardon kisses his wife)
                                                            
                       LOREN

Oh, Robert...
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Loren)
Just one more system I beg you.
Then I will come back and we will
raise our son together.
                                                            
                       LOREN
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Alright...One more.

EXT. BARAN RETURNS TO HAN - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Han waiting on a landing ramp when he spots
Barans starship)
                                                            
(Baran lands and gets out to greet his brother of which he's
been away from for a long time)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran!...Your looking good
Skywalker.
                                                            
(Han and Baran embrace in a brotherly hug. They both have
not seen one another in many months)
                                                            

10.

                       BARAN
      (To Han)
(Laughs) Well hello to you too
brother. It's great to see you
again. I've missed you.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
I have missed you as well. It has
been too long. You seem to be
growing up faster everytime I see
you.
                                                            
(Baran laughs at the comment)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
So how is the life of the military
treating you? Is everything on the
battle front up to par?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Good, real good. Yes as a matter
of fact. Funny you should ask
because that is why I am here. We
gained Cathar back just last
night.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Cathar has been taken back
already!? Thats outstanding,
Cathar is deep in the outer rim,
it was one of the systems under
strong sith control. Oh, the
council will be overjoyed to hear
the news.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Well, much of our success must be
credited to Commander Kardon. If
he hadn't come out of retirement,
this struggle would have lasted a
lot longer.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
How is old Robert anyhow? I have
not seen the likes of him since we
were children.
                                                            

11.

                       BARAN
      (To Han)
He's good. He still fights as well
as he did in his prime. I guess he
had a hell of a time trying to
convince his wife to let him
return to active duty.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Well thats what happens when you
dedicate your life to the Army,
you just cant seem to escape it.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
We got to know eachother better
over the course though, he has
become one of my good friends.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
That's good. While you were away
the Senate appointed senator
Dellanor Brogherek of Manaan
Supreme Chancellor.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Really, he would have been my
first choice.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Well its good to have you back
brother, let us go to the council
and give them the great news.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Let's make it quick I would like
to get back we still have a bunch
of systems to recover.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
In time Baran, come on.
                                                            
(Han puts his arm around Baran and they walk together into
their house)
                                                            
(Cut scene)

INT. NEWS OF VICTORY - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to the Jedi Council and Baran standing before
them)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Council)
...And so Cathar has returned to
Democracy, but again General
Castell has escaped, I had him in
my sights, I apologize I should
have had him.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Not to worry Baran, you did your
duty by gaining Cathar back from
the Dark Side. You did amazingly
well as Commander Kardon told us.
                                                            
(Baran smiles and looks over at Han)
                                                            
(Han returns the smile and nods)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Well thank you again young
Skywalker, your next order of
business will be brought to you at
a later time. Until then, rest and
regain your strength, we will have
Auron cover the next system.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
...That's it?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Yes, unless you had any questions
for us...?
                                                            
(Baran looks dissapointed and shakes his head)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
No Master Durron, thank you.
                                                            
(Baran exits to the waiting room where he finds Chancellor
Brogherek)
                                                            

13.

                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Chancellor Brogherek, what are you
doing here?
                                                            
(Brogherek gets up in excitement to shake Barans hand)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Baran Skywalker, Baran Skywalker,
it is an absolute pleasure to meet
you son. I have heard many a great
thing about your skills.
                                                            
(Baran smiles and bows his head down)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Thank you Chancellor, it is great
to finally meet you in person.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Oh, stop it, meeting a politician
isn't the thrill of a lifetime I
know, anyway how did your raid on
Cathar go?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
It went well, Commander Kardon is
an outstanding soldier, I am glad
he came back to fight for us
again. In fact, thats what I was
telling the council about, they
were pleased to here that we had
regained it.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Excellent, absolutely excellent.
Yes, I was just about to go into a
meeting with the council to summon
them to the next Senate meeting.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
You want the council at the next
meeting? Why is something wrong?
                                                            
(Brogherek laughs and shakes his head)
                                                            

14.

                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Dont you follow politics Jedi? No,
no, nothing is the matter. You
see, one of my orders of business
was to get a seat on the Senate
for the Jedi.
                                                            
(Baran looks suprised and focuses his attention to the old
man)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
I figure, since they protect us
they should have a strong
influence on the way this system
is run.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Thats outstanding! I never thought
anyone would let the Jedi have
more power than we are said to
have now. I am a strong believer
that we should be as active in
politics as the rest of the people
are.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
It is a shame that you are not on
the council, I'm sure people would
be more than willing to listen to
your input.
                                                            
(Baran looks kind of sad and lowers his head)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
The way things are going now I
doubt I'll ever be made a Jedi
Master...
                                                            
(Brogherek pats Baran on the back)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Not to worry Baran, just keep
doing the amazing things you do
and you will be made a Master in
no time.
                                                            
(Baran smiles at the Chancellor.)
                                                            

15.

                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Thank you Chancellor.
                                                            
(Baran and the Chancellor are standing in front of the
Senateroom doors.)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Dont mention it son, well I must
be getting in there, you know how
the Jedi are adament about
punctuality. We will have to meet
sometime, share your views on
politics.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Of couse, I would like that.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Outstanding. Pleasure meeting you
Baran. so long...
                                                            
(Brogherek makes his way towards the Council leaving Baran
alone)
                                                            
(Baran looks back smiles and shakes his head and exits the
room)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. BARAN'S FORCE RIFT - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera pans to Baran sitting on the couch and Han enters
the room)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
I understand you met Chancellor
Brogherek today.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Yeah, he is a really strange
man...he seemed way to overly
happy to meet me.
                                                            
(Han laughs at the comment)
                                                            

16.

                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Well, you are basically a
celebrity to the Senate, and it
fits your personality well I
think.
                                                            
(Baran smiles and gets up)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
People dont need to be worshipping
me, I'm not even a Jedi Master...
                                                            
(Baran glares at Han)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Is that what was bothering you
today Baran? You were mad because
the council didn't make you a
Master?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I dont get it. I have met all the
requirements to be a Master! I am
more than qualified, the council
just disagrees with everything I
do!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
That is the very reason you are
not ready Baran! The council knows
you are powerful, they see it as
well as anyone does! It is your
arrogance that is keeping you from
being GREAT Baran!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
It's Master Durron, he's jealous!
He knows I'm more powerful than
him, he is just afraid that I will
head the council when I'm on it!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
That is enough Baran!!! Master
Durron is a great man and you will
never be half the Jedi he is
because you cannot learn to

17.

                       HAN (cont'd)
control yourself!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Do not lecture me Han...I can see
through the councils doubt! You
are on it...help me get in! I
would think as my brother you
would have my back on this, You
trained me, you've seen my skills,
I can do stuff no one else alive
can do!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran, the Senate is at low scale
war and all you can think about is
yourself!? Fight the war, bring us
peace, no one else can do what you
can, I know! Maybe after we have
regained all the systems you can
become a Master but I'm not so
sure anymore after tonight!
                                                            
(Baran stands right up to Han and gets in his face)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
You...need me. Chancellor
Brogherek is on my side. He said
he was sorry that I wasn't on the
council so I couldn't attend
Senate meetings.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Chancellor Brogherek's mind is
blind to anything outside of
politics, he likes you for your
fame, nothing else.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I dont get it Han. And I dont want
to fight about it anymore.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Look Baran...you need to have
patience. You are not ready yet.
If you could just get over
yourself for one second....
                                                            

18.

                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I SAID DO NOT LECTURE ME! I am the
best chance you have at regaining
those systems! Without me, the
Republic is lost!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Then we are lost! We do need you
Baran! Is that what you want to
hear! IS IT!?
                                                            
(Baran gives Han a quick dirty look and then turns away.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Look I'm going out tonight...I
need to clear my thoughts....if I
were you I wouldn't be here when I
get back...
                                                            
(Han walks out angerly)
                                                            
(Baran gets super pissed and throws his lightsaber across
the room and punches the wall then he goes and sits down)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (VOICEOVER)

me join me join me) become

louder and louder) Kasus murmuring
continues)
                                                            
(Baran starts yelling in pain and holding his head.)
                                                            
(The voices stop and Baran lifts his head up and falls out
of his seat. He gets up and grabbs his chest. He appears
exhausted and confused and finally he collapses.)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. BARAN AWAKES - DAY
                                                            
(While knocked out, Baran sees many future events that are
painful to him, he sees Auron in great pain and agony. He
also sees a hooded figure attacking the council and
slaughtering them all.)
                                                            

19.

                       BARAN
      (To Himself)
No......NO!!!!
                                                            
(Baran quickly sits up and awakes. He is sweaty and very
pale)
                                                            
(After Baran sits up, Han grabs him trying to calm him
down.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
BARAN!
                                                            
(Baran still confused, looks around to see Han standing next
to him.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran its me Han, are you alright?
                                                            
(Baran holds his forehead and begins to realize what is
going on.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran what happened?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
(Out of breath) Kasus.....It was
Kasus. He was.....in my mind.
                                                            
(Han has a concerned look upon his face)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
(Out of breath)I saw.....horrible
things. Auron.....The coun-

(Interrupts Baran) Calm down
Baran. It was nothing more than a
dream.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
But....It was so...real.

Get some rest my Brother. You
shall feel better in the morning I

                       HAN (cont'd)
promise you.
                                                            
(Baran smiles at Han and lies down trying to rest.)
                                                            
(Han has another disturbed look on his face, he begins to
walk out of the room and pulls out his com-link.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron via
       com-link)
Master Durron.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han via
       com-link)
Yes Master Skywalker what is it?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron via
       com-link)
My brother Baran....he
has....forseen something horrible.
He spoke of Auron and the council.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han via
       com-link)
I see.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron via
       com-link)
He also spoke of Darth Kasus. We
have not heard of this Sith since
his training on Endor. I wonder
what brings him up now. I was
under the impression he was dead.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han via
       com-link)
Disturbing this is. This matter
must not be overlooked. Baran
shall be questioned in front of
the council. We will get to the
bottom of this.
                                                            
(Han puts away his com-link and walks out of the room.)

INT. MISSION TO NAR SHADAA - DAY
                                                            
(The Jedi council is in session debating what is the best
upcoming course of action. Han is not in attendance.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To council)
The Sith have been quiet since
their defeat at Cathar. Their
morale is low and they are
unorganized. We must send word to
all battalions to advance on all
Sith held systems and to capture
them.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Stoss)
In time Master Stoss, no doubt the
Sith are weak but we must organize
an attack plan so we may assure
victory.
                                                            
(Cm. Kardon walks at a fast pace into the council room.)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Kardon)
Commander, any news from the
front?
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To council)
Yes, our spies have been able to
locate a hidden sith base on the
planet of Nar Shadaa. I advise we
send a squad of troops to further
investigate and verify the
findings.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Kardon)
Of course, send a scout battalion
at once.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Durron)
There is more. We also believe
that General Castell is hiding
there.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Kardon)
If this is the case you shall
require assisstance. I shall send
word to Jedi Knight Auron Tobaar

                       DURRON (cont'd)
to accompany you on this mission.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Durron)
Forgive me Master Durron but may I
request that Baran Skywalker
accompany me instead?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
No Commander Kardon, Baran has
fallen ill since last night and he
is unable to fight right now.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Durron)
May I request a leave of absence
until Baran has recovered, I
really dont want to go anywhere
without him.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Denied, Auron will be your Jedi
escort to the Nar Shadaa system,
that is final.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Durron)
As you wish Master Jedi.
                                                            
(Cm. Kardon turns and exits the councilroom.)
                                                            
(Cuts to Auron's quarters where he is preparing to leave for
Nar Shadaa.)
                                                            
(A Templeguard walks into Aurons quarters.)
                                                            
                       TEMPLEGUARD
      (To Auron)
Sir, Master Skywalker is waiting
outside for you.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Templeguard)
Thank you, tell him I will be
right out.
                                                            
(Templeguard leaves room. Auron continues to get ready
picking up lightsaber off table and putting on robe.)
                                                            
(Auron walks out and is approached by Han.)
                                                            

23.

                       AURON
      (To Han)
Ahh Master Han, how may I serve
you?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Auron)
I've been meaning to speak to you
about something. My brother Baran
has felt a disturbance in the
force. He has forseen something
terrible.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Han)
What does this have to do with me?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Auron)
Well, he spoke of you. And of
Darth Kasus, and of the Council.
                                                            
(Auron looks worried and even a little frightened.)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Han)
Forgive me Han but your brother,
even though he is a good friend of
mine, is a fool. I see many things
in him. Anger. Pain. Arrogance. He
is strong with the force indeed
but his feelings are misguided. I
believe that if something were
threating me I would have felt it
as well.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Auron)
All im asking is for you to be
careful. Even though the Sith are
close to being defeated. The Dark
Side is still strong. And it will
consume you if you are caught off
guard.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Han)
Very well I shall be careful. But
I must be going. I am to depart
for Nar Shadaa at once. We have
found where General Castell is
hiding. If we eliminate him, we
could end this war.
                                                            

24.

                       HAN
      (To Auron)
Then good luck and may the force
be with you.

EXT. KASUS REVEALS HIS PLAN - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera pans to General Castell rounding up troops for a
briefing)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Dark Guards)
Alright, move in, move in, lets
go!
                                                            
(Castell turns his back to the croud)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
They are all yours my lord.
                                                            
(Out of the shadows Darth Kasus appears, everyone in the
croud gasps)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guards)
Dark Guards...Bounty
Hunters...Protectors of the Dark
Side...I am Darth Kasus.
                                                            
(The croud looks scared and one stands up)
                                                            
                       DARK GUARD
      (To Kasus)
Lord Kasus is dead! We have all
heard the legends, right? If you
are Kasus why weren't you....
                                                            
(The guard is cut off by Kasus force choking him)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guards)
I AM DARTH KASUS! I have been in
hiding for the past five years,
and come out tonight to reveal to
you all, how we shall finally
defeat the Jedi.
                                                            
(Croud gets rowdy and lots of talk goes around)
                                                            

25.

                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guards)
SILENCE! Tomorrow the Republic
Army will arrive here on Nar
Shadaa in hopes to regain it from
Sith rule. The Jedi Auron Tobaar
will be here, this Jedi remains no
consequence to our cause. However,
I need him to suffer. Our main
objective is to lure the great
Jedi Baran Skywalker to our cause.
I promise all of you Baran will
join us, and with him by my side
there will be no one to stand in
our way!
                                                            
(The croud stands up and cheers)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guards)
TO WAR!!!
                                                            
(The crowd erupts in chants and cheers.)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Dark Guards)
To your battle stations men!
Tomorrow we will have victory over
the Republic!
                                                            
(Crowd moves out with great entusiasm)
                                                            
(General Castell turns to Kasus)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kaus)
My lord are you so certain this
plan will work?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
I was too hasty in my prior
attempt to turn Baran. His mind
was young and flooded with
thoughts of his father. I have
felt a rift in the Force, one I
have not felt since the last time
I was in Baran's presence. He is
now strong enough to destroy us.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
He is just a boy...
                                                            

26.

                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
You fool! Have you no knowledge of
the Force? Baran Skywalker is the
most powerful Jedi ever, if he
knew his potential we would
already be dead.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Why is he so important to you
Master Kasus??
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Castell)
You have heard the rumors of the
Dark Side uniting under one ruler
and becoming more powerful than
the ways of the Jedi.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Yes I have Sire.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Baran is the ruler...He is the
only one alive powerful enough to
unite us all. He MUST become a
Sith. It is his destiny...
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
What will you have me do?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Two of Baran's good friends, Auron
Tobaar and Commander Kardon will
be here tomorrow. If he can sense
them both is dire need then he
will defy the council and come to
their rescue. By doing so he is
making the first step towards the
Dark Side.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Leave this Commander Kardon to me,
I have seen him in action, his
powers are nothing to the match of
mine.
                                                            

27.

                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
At last things are set in motion
that cannot be undone. Finally the
Dark Side will triumph over the
tyranny of the Jedi!
                                                            
(General Castell bows and exits)

INT. BARAN'S QUESTIONING - DAY
                                                            
(Baran walks into the councilroom, he still looks a little
shaken up from the visions. Han is not in attendance.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Baran)
Baran. Please sit down.
                                                            
(Baran sits down in a chair located in the middle of the
room.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To council)
Whats this about? Why have you
summoned me?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Baran I would like to talk about
your "dream" you had a few nights
back.
                                                            
(Baran first collects his thoughts trying to remember
everything he saw.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To council)
I saw.....many horrible things.
Mostly of future events but of the
past as well. I relived my fathers
death and my encounter with Darth
Kasus.
                                                            
(Council looks at each other with disturbing looks.)
                                                            

28.

                       BARAN
      (To council)
I also saw Auron....In pain. And
the council being....slaughtered.
                                                            
(Council looks uneasy.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To council)
Kasus also spoke to me. It was
almost like he was calling me to
him.
                                                            
                       STOSS
      (To Baran)
Baran. Darth Kasus hasn't been
seen in over five years. He has
lost his power. The Sith are weak
and will soon fall to the might of
the Republic.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To everyone)
(Looking down) The Sith are weak.
But the Dark Side.....The Dark
Side is still powerful. Kasus is
not dead. Even now his power
grows. He is planning something.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
(Stands up quickly) Then let me
find him! Let me hunt him down and
destroy him! I will end this war!
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Baran! Control yourself! Darth
Kasus is a Sith Lord. You must
understand that he is strong in
the force. He would destroy you.
You will not persue him. The Sith
will be defeated soon enough. I
have sent Auron to Nar Shadaa. We
believe General Castell is hiding
there.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
You cant be serious! Gaining back
the systems was my task! Auron is
not prepared for it, I have
forseen it in my dream, he will
            (MORE)

29.

                       BARAN (cont'd)
fail!
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
THAT IS ENOUGH!
                                                            
(Baran looks down and is building up anger inside.)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
(In a angry tone) Chancellor
Brogherek has requested you on the
planet of Onderon. He is meeting
with Queen Atris tommorrow in an
effort to gain support and for
them to join the Republic.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
And what does this have to do with
me?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
He feels uneasy of his presence
there. If you were there, I
believe the Chancellor would be
more relaxed and have better
success on the Onderon matter.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
(In a angry tone) As you wish. I
will not let you down.
                                                            
(Baran still mad storms out of councilroom.)
                                                            
(Outside of the councilroom Han is waiting for him.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Feeling better I see.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I dont get it. The council sees
whats happening. But they dont do
anything. If the Council doesn't
act the Republic is doomed.
                                                            

30.

                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran! Do not judge the councils
actions! They are only doing what
is right.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Allowing the Dark Side to grow is
right?! All the council is, is a
bunch of fools! They do not take
action!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
May I remind you that your own
brother is apart of it?
                                                            
(Baran is silent and turns away.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Im.....Im sorry brother. But they
dont realize my true potential. I
could end this war. I could bring
order back to this galaxy. But the
council denys me the right.
                                                            
(Han looks at Baran in a dissapointed way.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I am to leave for Onderon at once,
the Chancellor has summoned me to
protect him during the
negotiations. Hopefully they are a
success and give us another strong
ally in this war. You must excuse
me I have other matters to attend
to.
                                                            
(Han still looks mad at Baran and just walks away.)
                                                            
(Baran is angered at this and feels like his brother has
abandon him.)
                                                            
 
INT. NAR SHADAA INITIATIVE - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Auron and Kardon planning out how to over
take Nar Shadaa)
                                                            

31.

                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
So what I was thinking is to
divide our offenses to cover more
ground.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
But if we split up then that
weakens our central core of
soldiers, if Baran were here
he'd....
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Baran? I am so sick of hearing
about Baran all the time! Everyone
cannot see past his fame, he's is
reckless and all his motives are
dangerous. That is why the council
has chosen me to recover this
system.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
He is not as bad as you Jedi make
him out to be. He's the most
powerful person in the galaxy I
believe, and he is my friend.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
He is my friend too but he is not
loyal to the order...Now can we
get back to our initiative?
                                                            
(Commander Kardon nods his head and looks down)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Alright, believe me this will
work. If Castell is hiding this
will be the best way to lure him
out.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
If Castell is here do you think
that Darth Kasus will be on the
planet too?
                                                            

32.

                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Not at all, Kasus has not been
spotted since Baran's run in with
him on Endor. Even if he is still
alive he is no longer in power,
the Jedi council would have sensed
it.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
Many people think that the Sith
Lord has returned, if Baran's
preminitions are correct...
                                                            
(Auron glares at Kardon over the mention of Baran)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Trust me, he isn't here, I would
have felt him the second I set
foot here.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
Alright, when do you plan to
attack?
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
As soon as possible, I want to be
in the hotzone by dusk if that is
feesable.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
I'll see what I can do.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Make it happen Commander, I will
not let another system fall to the
Sith while I'm in control.
                                                            
(Commander Kardon bows and exits)
                                                            
(Auron takes out a com-link and gets the Jedi Council on
Frequency)
                                                            

33.

                       AURON
      (To Durron Via
       Com-Link)
We will have this system back by
nightfall Master Durron.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Auron Via
       Com-Link)
Very well done Auron, I knew we
made the right decision sending
you.
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Durron Via
       Com-Link)
Thank you Master I will not let
you down, over and out.
                                                            
(Auron puts away the com-link and looks at the plans more)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. COUNCIL DEALINGS - DAY
                                                            
(Master Durron puts away the com-link and speaks to the
other members)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Council)
Nar Shadaa is all but sustained
now, Auron has his plan down and
will have seized the planet by
dark.
                                                            
                       MORTUM
      (To Durron)
Excellent, should we send Baran
off now to guard the Chancellor?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Council)
Yes, Master Skywalker, will you
please contact your brother and
have him depart for Onderon as
soon as possible.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
Of course Master Durron I will do
so now.
                                                            

34.

(Han exits the room leaving the council alone)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Council)
Do you think it was wise to deny
Baran to continue to gain back the
fallen systems? He is doing so
well.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
I had no choice, the Chancellor
insisted that Baran and only Baran
escort him to Onderon. But theres
no need to worry Auron has this
all under control.
                                                            
                       STOSS
      (To Council)
Let's hope that we are able to
reach a treaty with Queen Atris,
the Onderon Army is very strong
and wide in numbers, once we have
that system things will be going
in our favor.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Stoss)
Not to worry, we've had peaceful
relations with the Ondorens for
many many years.
                                                            
                       MORTUM
      (To Council)
What do you think about this dream
Baran has had about the council?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Mortum)
Nothing but a dream, if there was
a plot to destroy the Jedi, I
would have sensed it. I think
Baran is just having trouble
filtering out his feelings right
now.
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Durron)
So you dont sense any immediate
danger of which we should be
hesitant about?
                                                            

35.

                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
None at all, besides we have a lot
more things to be worrying about
right now other than the
nightmares of a boy.
                                                            
(Council settles in easier)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. HAN SENDS BARAN OFF - DAY
                                                            
(Camera cuts to Han catching up with Baran and walking with
him)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran!...Auron has the situation
at Nar Shadaa planned out so it is
time for you to escort Chancellor
Brogherek to Onderon.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Alright, what will the council
have me do to ensure his safety?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Never let him out of your sight,
we are also sending a couple
Galactic Soldier to accompany you,
we are not taking any chances.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I understand, I will make sure
nobody comes near the Chancellor.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Very good, I trust you Baran.
                                                            
(Baran smiles but then becomes serious and looks at Han
straight)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Han, I must apologize to you. I
haven't been the most honorable of
Jedi I know, but I am truly
blessed to have been taught by
            (MORE)

36.

                       BARAN (cont'd)
you.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
I am glad to hear you say that
Baran. Maybe some of your fame
will rub off onto me huh? I'll be
known as the great master who
trained the greatest Jedi ever.
                                                            
(Both smile and laugh, it is the first peaceful encounter
they have had together in a long, long time.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I must say I am scared Han, what
is something happens. This is a
really big responsibility.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
That is why we have sent you
Baran. If something does happen we
are positive you can handle
anything.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I should be with Commander Kardon,
he is used to my tactics, I'm just
worried Auron is going to do
something stupid.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Try to set your feelings aside
brother. Once you have returned I
am sure you will have gained back
the trust of the council.
                                                            
(Baran smiles)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Now come here, give me a hug.
                                                            
(Han extends his hands out and him and Baran share in a
moment together)
                                                            

37.

                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Now you be careful you hear? Good
luck to you.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Thank you Han, I will not let you
down again that is a promise.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
I know you wont, may the force be
with you brother.
                                                            
(Baran exits the scene and Han is left watching him walk
away with a smile on his face)
                                                            
(Han uncrosses his arms and makes his way back to the
council room)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. SUPRISED! - NIGHT
                                                            
(Auron is shown thinking alone when Cm. Kardon comes in.)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
My men have secured the perimeter
and located where the main Sith
threat resides. What are your
orders?
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Kardon)
Excellent Commander. Send word to
all of your men to prepare for the
attack.
                                                            
(Kardon looks a little worried about the order.)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
Sir, might I suggest calling for
support from the nearby systems.
The Sith could have greater
numbers than we anticipated.
                                                            
(Auron looks at Kardon in a disturbing way.)
                                                            

38.

                       AURON
      (To Kardon)
We do not have time to wait. The
longer we wait the more time the
Sith have to increase their
numbers, we must act now.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
(Disagreeingly) Yes sir.
                                                            
(Before Kardon is about to exit, a guard rushes in.)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Kardon)
Sir! The Sith, The Sith are
everywhere! Bravo Unit has been
totally wiped out!
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Soldier)
What! Impossible! Send all units
to reinforce our right flank!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Kardon)
Yes Sir!
                                                            
(All extra men showed at the Republic base on Nar Shadaa are
quickly assembled and led to the battlefront leaving only
Auron and Kardon at the base.)
                                                            
 
INT. DARK SIDE RISING - NIGHT
                                                            
(Kasus is shown in his fortress on Nar Shadaa with General
Castell.)
                                                            
(Dark Guard runs in.)
                                                            
                       DARK GUARD
      (To Kasus)
Sir! We have sent all available
units to attack the Republic
forces. We are holding strong and
will take the Republic base in the
near future.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guard)
Excellent. You are dismissed.
                                                            
(Dark Guard Exits.)
                                                            

39.

                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Lord Kasus I do not agree with
this. By sending all of our units,
we leave our base very weak and
unguarded.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Castell)
(Angry voice) Do you question my
orders general?
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
N-No sir.
                                                            
(Castell looks uneasy.)
                                                            
(Kasus turns and faces Castell.)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Castell)
General take your private guard to
the planet of Onderon. There I
want you to capture Chancellor
Brogherek.
                                                            
(Castell looks uneasy again.)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
But sir, the Chancellor will be-
                                                            
(Kasus gets very angry.)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Castell)
GO!....NOW!...And if you fail me I
would make sure you feel the true
fury of the force!
                                                            
(Castell very scared runs out of the room very fast.)
                                                            
(Kasus calms down and bows head.)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Himself)
Everything is going as plan.
                                                            
(Kasus gives an evil smile.)
                                                            

40.

                       KASUS
      (To Himself)
He will be mine soon enough.....
                                                            
 
INT. BARANS ARRIVAL - NIGHT
                                                            
(Baran and Brogherek arrive at Onderon and make their way
into the queen's palace)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
I cannot tell you how overjoyed I
am that you agreed to come along
with me Baran. Having you hear
makes me feel a lot better about
the situation at hand.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Oh, it is my pleasure Chancellor.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Maybe since you're here it will
help the Onderons with their
decision to join us.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Sir?
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Master Skywalker your fame reaches
to many parts of the galaxy beside
Coruscant. A friend of mine who is
on the Queen's high council is
excited to meet you.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
You didn't just bring me here for
persuasion did you Chancellor?
                                                            
(Brogherek looks down a little embarrassed)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
My Lord?
                                                            

41.

                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
I am sorry Baran but I thought if
you were here that the Queen would
have no choice but to join us.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
So you are using me as a threat!?
You dont need guarding at all, you
brought me to scare the Ondorens
into joining us didn't you!?
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
You must see things from my
perspective Baran, if I had come
alone I am certain the Queen would
have denied our proposal.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
I understand fully sir but my
friends need me in the war, I cant
just leave for purposes that dont
render any consequence.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
I do apologize Baran, but that is
not the only reason I summoned you
here with me.
                                                            
(Baran looks over to Brogherek with full attention)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
You know a great deal about
politics and you share some of the
same views as I do about
Democracy.
                                                            
(Baran looks suprised)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
That's strange, my brother always
looked down at me for my veiws
about the Senate.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
You can't let other people tell
you what is right Baran. When it

42.

                       BROGHEREK (cont'd)
comes to politcs you have to go
with your gut, or else nothing
will be solved.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
That is exactly what I have said
all my life.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
Your mind is in the right place
Skywalker, trust only that and no
one else. Now lets go in and see
if we can muster us an ally.
                                                            
(Brogherek smiles at Baran and motions for him to join him)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
As you wish Chancellor.
                                                            
(Baran smiles back and Brogherek puts his arm around him as
they walk into the palace.)
                                                            
 
INT. QUEEN'S PALACE - DAY
                                                            
(Brogherek and Baran enter into the Queen's main chamber to
find her high council and herself sitting down alongside a
long table)
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (TO Brogherek and
       Baran)
Ah, Supreme Chancellor Dellanor
Brogherek, please have a seat.
                                                            
(Brogherek takes the lone seat and Baran remains standing)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Queen Atris)
Thank you Queen Atris, it is a
pleasure to finally meet you.
                                                            
(The queen smiles and nods her head down and looks at Baran
and clears her throat then looks at Brogherek)
                                                            
(Brogherek stirs in his chair)
                                                            

43.

                       BROGHEREK
      (To Queen Atris)
Oh how rude of me, of course,
Queen Atris this is Jedi Knight
Baran Skywalker.
                                                            
(Baran bows)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
It is a pleasure to make your....
                                                            
(Baran gets interrupted by the Queen)
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Baran)
THE Baran Skywalker??
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
Yes, my lady.
                                                            
(The queen looks taken aback and puts her hand to her chest)
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Baran)
Oh, I must say we Ondorens have
heard many great things about you
Jedi. You um, you are quite an
admiration around these parts of
the galaxy.
                                                            
(Baran smiles and laughs)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
Why thank you my lady.
                                                            
(A long pause takes place with the Queen staring at Baran,
Brogherek looks back and forth from the two and finally
clears his throat)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Queen Atris)
Shall we get down to business
Queen Atris?
                                                            
(The queen shakes herself out of a trance and looks at the
Chancellor and smiles)
                                                            

44.

                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Bogherek)
Yes of course, I am ready to hear
your proposal.
                                                            
(The queen looks back up at Baran and smiles big and Baran
returns the smile and puts his head down)
                                                            
(The Chancellor takes out a piece of paper and hands it to
the queen)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Queen Atris)
As you can see we hae gained back
many systems back to Democracy
thanks to our very skilled Jedi
friends.
                                                            
(The Queen looks at the paper)
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Brogherek)
I see.
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Queen Atris)
As a planet under our government
your people will be given full
rights and benefits and be
protected under the "Galactic
Unbrella" as I like to call it.
Which means if any conflict at all
is to take place on this system,
our Army will retalliate.
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Brogherek)
Would the Jedi be included in the
military action?
                                                            
(The queen looks up to Baran and smiles again)
                                                            
(Baran returns the smile again and blushing some)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
Of course my lady, we take care of
the galaxy of which we serve.
                                                            
(The queen smiles in a flirty manner and cuts back to Baran
smiling as well)
                                                            
(Cut scene)

INT. BATTLE RAGES ON - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera cuts to Auron and Kardon in their base with siren
wailing and lights flashing and things are falling apart and
the ground is rumbling)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
This is impossible, I did
everything right!
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
No one could have predicted that
the Dark forces would be this
strong!
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
What do we do Commander!!
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
YOU'RE in charge sir!
                                                            
(A single Galactic Soldier enters the base scared out of his
mind)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Auron and
       Kardon)
The battalion is in full scale
retreat, I have orders to get both
of you to safety!
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
NO! We do not retreat, have your
men press on!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (TO Auron)
Sir all the men are dead! We are
out-numbered we have no choice but
to retreat!
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
There must be another way!!
                                                            

46.

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Auron and
       Kardon)
Follow me sir, we have a single
shuttle ready to take the both of
you to a safe zone.
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To Auron)
Auron there is nothing you can do!
We have to retreat!
                                                            
(Auron looks pissed and takes a moment to think)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Very well then, lets go!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Auron and
       Kardon)
This way!
                                                            
(The soldier directs them to the shuttle and they take off
with the soldier in front shooting his blaster)
                                                            
(After a while of running and shooting and dodging Auron
speaks)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
HOW MUCH FURTHER!?
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Auron)
Not far sir! It's just up...
                                                            
(All of the sudden one of the soldiers around Commander
Kardon gets shot and falls to the ground. Not long after
Kardon gets shot in the shoulder and falls down yelling.
Auron runs over to help him but enemy fire is so heavy he
has to take guard along with the other soldiers.)
                                                            
(The soldier along with others go to his aid and many get
shot in the process)
                                                            
(Kardon starts to yell for Baran's help)
                                                            
(Out of no where Darth Kasus jumps into view, kills alot of
the soldiers with his lightsaber and uses force lightning on
two galactic soldiers trying to guard Kardon.)
                                                            

47.

(Darth Kasus walks up to Kardon and points his lightsaber at
his neck)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Yell for him...
                                                            
(Kardon is breathing hard and still grasping his shoulder
where he got shot)
                                                            
                       CM. KARDON
      (To himself)
B...B...Baran!! Help me please!
Baran!
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Yes...
                                                            
(Kasus slowly slides his lightsaber through Kardons chest
cutting his cries for Baran short)
                                                            
(Kardon's squirms come to an end as the lightsaber goes
through his back and his eyes fog over)
                                                            
(Auron dodges all of the oncomming blasters and looks over
to Kardons position)
                                                            
                       AURON
      (To Kasus)
NO!
                                                            
(Kasus looks over and takes his saber out of Kardon's dead
body)
                                                            
(Auron looks over at Kardon and tears run through his eyes)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Auron)
A shame that your great Commander
endured so much pain in the end. I
killed him slow. Soon Baran will
be here. And im afraid young
Jedi...you will die.
                                                            
(Auron takes out his lightsaber and takes his fighting
stance)
                                                            
(Kasus runs at his and the two uprage in a battle)

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Cm. Kardon)
Commander!
                                                            
(The soldier checks Kardon for a pulse)
                                                            
(The other soldier looks over to him and he shakes his head.
Both bow their heads and get Kardon onto a stretcher and
take him aboard the shuttle)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Commander Kardon? What happened??
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To other Soldier)
It was Darth Kasus sir. The
Commander didn't stand a chance.
Then he attacked Master Tobaar.
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
They were ready for us. They knew
exactly what to do! We have to
wait for Master Tobaar. Tell the
men to hold as long as they can!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To other Soldier)
Yes sir!

negotiations are nearing an end)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
...And so if you are to join the
Senate you will...
                                                            
(Barans sentence is cut short by the force and Kardon
shouting out for him in pain)
                                                            
(Baran grabs his head and collapses on the floor)
                                                            
(Everyone gets up and rushes to help him up)

agony)
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
What is it Baran!? Whats wrong!?
                                                            
(Baran looks up at him from the ground breathing hard and
still in pain)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Brogherek)
Im sorry Chancellor but I have to
go...
                                                            
                       BROGHEREK
      (To Baran)
But we've almost closed the deal,
you can't leave now.

      (To Brogherek)
I have no choice, my friends are
in trouble!
                                                            
(Brogherek looks up to the Queen and then back down to
Baran)

Very well, I'm sure I can cap this
deal off, you did great son.

walk out)

                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Baran)
Wait! where are you going?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)
I apologize my lady but I must
depart at once, it is urgent.
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Baran)
You will have to come visit us
again, I'm sure I can work
something out with my high
council.

                       BARAN
      (To Queen Atris)

aprehend the Chancellor)
                                                            
                       QUEEN ATRIS
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
What is going on, release him at
once!

Get him out of here! Do not wait
for me!!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Baran)
Yes sir!!
                                                            
(Auron and whats left of the soldiers make their way to the
shuttle leaving Baran to stand alone against Kasus once
again.)

                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
I must say I have looked forward
to this moment since the last time
we met. You have grown powerful
Baran. If I didn't know any better
I'd say...
                                                            
(Kasus is interrupted by Baran and he points his lightsaber
at him)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
SILENCE! You dont know me, you
dont talk to me like you know me,
you dont look at me like you know
me! understood!?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Oh, but I do know you Baran...I
watched you grow up...I did....
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
LIAR!!
                                                            

54.

                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
No one has ever told you who I
really am have they Baran?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
You killed my father, you killed
my best friend...You are no one
but a coward and a petty sith.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
No Baran, you see, I too was once
a Jedi Knight much like
yourself...
                                                            
(Baran shakes his head in disbelief)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
NO!...It's not possible!
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Is it so hard to believe Baran? I
was there the day you were born, I
watched as your mother gave birth
to you, I planned your destiny
from day one...I watched as you
matured, I've watched you in the
shadows your entire life...
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
You lie! My family would never be
befriend a Sith!
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Your father was the one that lied
to me!! He taught me the ways of
the Jedi and said I would need no
further knowledge. He was wrong!
He hid the dark side from me! He
hid the true power of the force!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
The only true power of the force
is that, which dwells inside the
Jedi.
                                                            

55.

                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Is that really how you feel Baran?
Or is that your brothers words
comming out of your mouth?
                                                            
(Baran looks pissed that the Sith maybe right)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Dont you see Baran...We are the
same you and I! Why not join me?
Become who you were born to be!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Baran)
Your wrong! We are nothing alike!
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Take your place by my side
Baran...The Jedi Council will
never let you become a
Master...With me there is no
limits to your power...With the
dark side no one will be able to
stop you!
                                                            
(Baran puts his lightsaber away but starts to realize the
truth)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
I was born a Jedi...I'll die a
Jedi...
                                                            
(Baran starts to walk away)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Don't throw it all away Baran!
There are no answers down that
path! You will come back to me!
You will see through the lies of
the Jedi and you will beg me to
train you!
                                                            
(Baran says nothing but keeps walking)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
DONT FORGET IT BARAN! DONT FORGET
WHO YOU REALLY ARE!
                                                            

56.

(Kasus exits and the camera shows Baran who has a tear going
down his cheek)
                                                            
(Baran gets into his ship and stops to recollect his
feelings)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To himself)
He couldn't have been a Jedi...but
he's right...he's right...
                                                            
(Baran shakes his head and takes off for Coruscant)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. ARRIVAL OF THE FALLEN - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Coruscant where the soldiers and Auron
return on their shuttle)
                                                            
(Master Exar goes running to the shuttle as some soldiers
carry out Auron who is bashed up and cannot move much and
other soldiers carrying out a coffin.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
What happened!?
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
We were ambushed by the Sith. We
had no idea of there strength on
the system. Once the outer core
was breached we had no choice to
retreat with what men were left
alive.
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Where is the Commander?
                                                            
(The soldier closes his eyes and bows his head and puts his
hand on the coffin)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
No...what...what happened?
                                                            

57.

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
Darth Kasus was leading the attack
on the planet. He hunted them down
killed all the soldier guards and
murdered Commander Kardon.
                                                            
(Exar is shocked and shakes his head in dibelief)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
He then attacked Auron and they
engaged in a battle from which
Auron is pretty messed up from. We
have to get him to sick bay
immediatley.
                                                            
(Some other soldiers bring Auron out of the shuttle all
bandaged up and on minor life support)
                                                            
(Exar looks over at the brutally beaten Knight and is
disguisted at what he sees)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
If it weren't for Baran Skywalker
Auron would be dead.
                                                            
(Exar nods his head then stops and thinks)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Soldier)
Wait...what? How can that be,
Baran was on Onderon with the
Chancellor.
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
Baran showed up in the Republic
cruiser just after we lost site of
Auron. He rushed into the base and
went out looking for Auron and the
Commander.
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Where is Baran now?!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
We dont know sir. After he saved
Auron from being struck down he
told us to leave without him. He
            (MORE)

58.

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER (cont'd)
was left alone to face Darth
Kasus.
                                                            
(Exar looks horrified knowing that Baran could be dead)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Get Auron to sick bay at once and
you should see a doctor as well
Corporal.
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Exar)
Yes sir.
                                                            
(The soldier jerks his head over to the other soldiers)
                                                            
(The Soldiers carry Auron away on a strecher.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To himself)
The council must be informed.
                                                            
(Exar runs inside into the Temple to tell the council what
had just happened.)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. AFTERMATH OF NAR SHADAA - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Master Exar standing before the Jedi
Council.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Council)
The Army was outnumbered and the
central core was broken. They had
no choice but to sound a full
scale retreat.
                                                            
(The council is suprised and disturbed by the information at
hand)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
Are you telling me that we lost
the system Master Exar?
                                                            

59.

                       EXAR
      (To Durron)
Yes sir. But thats not
all...Commander Kardon was killed
in battle by Darth Kasus.
                                                            
(The entire council looks shocked)
                                                            
                       STOSS
      (To Exar)
Commander Kardon is dead!?
                                                            
(Exar nods his head)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Stoss)
I saw the soldiers carry out the
coffin myself.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Council)
Send someone out to inform Mrs.
Kardon.
                                                            
(Everyone has trouble speaking because they are close to
tears and choked up)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
What happened to Auron?
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Durron)
He and Darth Kasus engaged in a
fight. Auron is badly hurt and
would be dead now if not for Baran
comming to his rescue.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
Baran??
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Durron)
Apparently he abandoned his post
to seek out and save whoever was
left on Nar Shadaa.
                                                            
(The council is interrupted by a Galactic Soldier rushing
in)
                                                            

60.

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Council)
Council Masters! Council Masters!
                                                            
(The council directs their attention to the lone soldier)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Council)
He had not recieved a standard
check in call from the soldiers on
Onderon with the Chancellor so we
sent a scout team and the status
is they are dead!
                                                            
(Durron gets out of his chair and the rest of the council
gasps)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
What of the Chancellor??
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Durron)
The Queen's high council was shot
down and survivors say that the
Queen and the Chancellor were
kidnapped by General Castell.
                                                            
(Durron looks beyond pissed and turns his stare to the other
council members)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Council)
Send for Baran NOW!
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Durron)
I'm on it sir!
                                                            
(The galactic soldier exits and the council is in a state of
shock at what has happened all in one night)

INT. LOREN'S FEAR IS TRUTH - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Loren Kardon in her kitchen doing dishes
when she notices a speeder come up to her house)
                                                            

61.

(Two Galactic Soldiers get out of the speeder dressed in
their formal attire. One is carrying a folded Galactic
Republic Flag)
                                                            
(Loren stops doing the dishes, dries her hands off and then
walks outside)
                                                            
(The soldiers walk up to her and she notices that one in
carrying a folded flag)
                                                            
(The soldier without the flag removes his hat and looks at
Loren in the eyes)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Loren)
Mrs. Kardon...
                                                            
(Lorens eyes well up with tears and she breaks down in pure
saddness and falls to her knees)
                                                            
(The soldier bends down and she puts her arms around him. He
embraces her as she cries into his shoulder)
                                                            
(The soldiers look at eachother with saddness on their
faces.)
                                                            
The camera pans away and sad music plays as Mrs. Kardon
stays on the ground grieving.)

INT. PRACTICE - DAY
                                                            
(Camera cuts to a dark room due to the blinds being shut)
                                                            
(Baran sits in the center on his knees deep in meditation)
                                                            
(He takes his lightsaber out and holds it in front of his
face)
                                                            
(He gets off his knees and starts to swing his lightsaber
around practicing his fight moves)
                                                            
(He starts to sweat after a while and then a soldier enters)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Baran)
Master Skywalker...
                                                            
(Out of habit Baran throws his lightsaber into the door and
the soldier looks stunned)
                                                            

62.

                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Baran)
Master Skywalker, the council has
requested youre presence at once.
                                                            
(Baran forces the lightsaber back to him)
                                                            
(He puts it away and nods to the soldier who then exits)
                                                            
(Baran puts his head down and then puts on his robe looking
into the light comming from the blinds)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. BACK ON COURSCANT - DAY
                                                            
(The Jedi Council is in session.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To council)
We must take immediate action.
With the Chancellor kidnapped the
Senate will be in a crisis. We
must recover him as soon as
possible. Send out Jedi at once
Master Durron.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To council)
No, if we act now then the Senate
will know something is aray, we
can only hope to play it off that
the Chancellor has decided to
prolong his stay at Onderon.
                                                            
                       MORTUM
      (To Durron)
Master Durron, as so not to
attract so much attention send a
lone Jedi to Korriban to save the
Chancellor.
                                                            
                       STOSS
      (To Mortum)
Who do you suggest? It cannot be a
Master of this council or else the
Senate will know whats wrong, but
they will have to be strong enough
to take on the Sith.
                                                            

63.

                       HAN
      (To council)
I know this is the last person you
would want to send but my brother
is the only option here. Auron is
in sickbay and the rest of the
Jedi are too weak. Send Baran, he
alone has the power to end this
war.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
You're brother is the reason for
all this madness! If he would have
simply followed orders, we would
have a Chancellor and we would not
be discussing this matter! Baran
has given me a lot of doubts
whether or not he belongs in the
Jedi Order.
                                                            
(Han sits back in his chair and trys to relax but is annoyed
with Durron.)
                                                            
(Shortly after, Baran walks into the councilroom, looking
very angry and overwhemed. He looks around the room and into
the eyes of every councilmember. He stops on Durron.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
You requested my presence sir?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Well at least you show up to some
places of which you should be.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
Master Durron there is a perfectly
good explanation for my actions.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
I certainly would hope so, the
punishment for disobeying orders
is strictly exile from the Jedi
ways, but because you are
protected under your last name the
council has forbade against my
banishing you. You are a disgrace
to this council and a drain on the
Force.
                                                            

64.

(Han Stands up to defend brother.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
That is enough Master Durron! My
brother is not a disgrace! He is
my flesh and blood. If he says he
has an explanation we should hear
him out instead of pushing him
away!
                                                            
(Durron is now quite furious.)
                                                            
(Han now turning his attention to his brother with a stern
tone in his voice.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Now Baran! Tell us, why did you
feel you had to leave the
Chancellor unattending and depart
for Nar Shadaa without sending
word?
                                                            
(Baran is now very angry and sad.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To council)
I did what I had to do. I was
suddenly hit with a force rift
which led me to believe Auron and
Commander Kardon were in trouble.
I was too late to save the
Commander but if I hadn't have
abandoned my post Auron would be
dead.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
But if you would have followed
orders the Chancellor would be
safe and we could plan our next
move in the war!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
Master I had no choice, there was
no present danger and the
Chancellor confessed to me that he
needed no guarding that I was
there simply for input and
persuasion.
                                                            

65.

                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Do not lie to us boy! Why would
the Chancellor want YOUR input on
politics, you know nothing of the
matter, you are only a distrout
Jedi Knight.
                                                            
(Han stands up to defend Baran again)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
You will have a seat Master
Skywalker if you want to stay on
this council!
                                                            
(Han sits back down and looks at Baran apologically and
feeling helpless)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
In light of what has happened here
today I am overruling this
council's decision to delay your
exile. Instead full punishment
will be brought down upon you.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
But you cant do that! It is
against the code, you are running
this council as if it is a
monarchy!
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
I can do what I want! I am the
Council Master! I make the
decisions according to MY will,
none others!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
You are a tyrant! The only reason
you are the Council Master is
because my father is gone! You
proclaimed yourself as head
chairman when everyone knows
perfectly well it is the Senate
who appoints such a position!
                                                            

66.

                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
You do not lecture me in the ways
of the code boy! Especially when
you cannot follow it yourself! You
are a liar! And a stain on the
name Skywalker!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
NO! YOU ARE THE LIAR! You are
decietful and power hungry! I now
see why you went behind the
Republics back to claim the
council for yourself...You want
control over this galaxy's
warriors! You want to take over!
                                                            
(The council looks at Durron as if it maybe true)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
That is a lie! You are twisting
peoples minds in hopes to over
throw me! It will not work Baran!
Your time as a Jedi is at an end!
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Durron)
You are the one who needs to be at
an end! I finally see what the
true ways of the Jedi are! You
want nothing but power!
                                                            
(Han now in shock from what he has heard.)
                                                            
(Durron Stands up.)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
BARAN SKYWALKER!...
                                                            
(Durron takes out his lightsaber and points it at Baran)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
You have shown this council that
you are unable to obtain yourself
through the force any longer! AS
LONG AS I STAND ON THIS COUNCIL
YOU WILL NEVER BE MADE A JEDI
MASTER!
                                                            

67.

(Baran is astonished at what has just happened)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Baran)
Be gone from this council! We will
decide your fate when the time
comes! NOW GO!
                                                            
(Durron takes a seat infuriated)
                                                            
(Baran says nothing but turns around and storms out of the
council)
                                                            
(Han gets up and follows Baran.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran!
                                                            
(Baran ignores Han and continues walking.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran!
                                                            
(Baran stops and turns around looking his brother in the
eyes. Han walks up and approaches him.)
                                                            
(Han looks disappionted and doesn't want to say whats in his
head.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran, I dont believe what had
just happened in there. You defied
Master Durron and the rest of the
council and accused them of
treason. Not only may you be
exiled but you might be put to
death!
                                                            
(Baran looks down and then looks into his brothers eyes in a
sad and peaceful way.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
Dont you get it Han? It doesn't
matter anymore, the Jedi lied to
us. There is nothing for us here
anymore!
                                                            

68.

                       HAN
      (To Baran)
That is not you talking Baran.
What has happened to you? You've
changed since Nar Shadaa. Tell me,
what really happened there. Or
else I have no choice but to take
the councils side in this fued.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I learned the truth...I have lost
my life, my father, my best
friend...
                                                            
(Baran's face turns very angry and evil. There is a sign of
the dark side emerging in him.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
.....and now...my brother...
                                                            
(Baran walks out of the Jedi Temple in a fit of rage.)
                                                            
 
INT. KORRIBAN - DAY
                                                            
(Darth Kasus returns to Korriban after the fued of Nar
Shadaa was sustained by the Dark Guards)
                                                            
(Kasus retreats to his chambers to find Castell sitting in a
chair waiting for him)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
General...Did you obtain the
Chancellor?
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Indeed I did Lord Kasus, I have
the Queen of Onderon in the
detention wing as well.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
I may be mistaken been I'm quite
positive that I said to only
capture THE CHANCELLOR!!!
                                                            
(Castell is taken aback by Kasus' madness)
                                                            

69.

                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
My lord I thought you would be
happy, I took the initiative of
having no witnesses so I killed
the high council and kidnapped the
Queen.
                                                            
(Castell laughs at his own amusement)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
You disobeyed orders, but perhaps
your decision wasn't as thick
headed as I had percieved.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
I did what I thought you would do
in my situation Master.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
You did well General, and you will
be rewarded...
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Theres one thing I dont get...How
did you know Baran would leave his
duty of defending the Chancellor?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
As a bounty hunter you wouldn't
understand...I attacked his best
friends and the force brought him
to me.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
What happened?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Unfortunatly I was unable to kill
Auron before Baran arrived. He
saved his freinds and left himself
alone to face me.
                                                            
(Kasus takes a seat.)
                                                            

70.

                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
He is more powerful than I could
have ever imagined, just being in
his presence was almost too much
for a mind to overcome.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
How did you manage to get away??
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
I talked to him, told him who I
really was, promised him answers
to all his questions if he were to
join me.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Yes...?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
He denied me once again but I am
certain I got through to him on
some sort of level, I sensed him
in much anger earlier today...Soon
enough he will be ready.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
How are we going to get to him, no
Sith can just easily walk into
Coruscant without the Jedi sensing
it.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
When the time has arrived he will
come to me.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Well then, let us celebrate, To
our victory over the Republic!
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
It will not be our last...
                                                            
(Cut scene)

EXT. ANOTHER SKYWALKER FALLS TO DARKNESS - NIGHT
                                                            
(Baran is sitting in the dark alone at his house replaying
the images of what happened earlier that day at the council)
                                                            
(Baran hears Durrons voice in his head)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (VOICEOVER)
YOU WILL NEVER BE A MASTER!
                                                            
(Baran disgusted gets up and goes to pour himself a drink)
                                                            
(As he pours it Kasus' voice whispers in the wind)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (VOICEOVER)
bbaaaaarrraaaaaannn.....
                                                            
(Baran drops the glass and stumbles over to the counter
where he burries his face in his hands)
                                                            
(More whispering takes place in the silence, but you cant
make out what it is saying)
                                                            
(All of the sudden complete silence followed by Han walking
into the room)
                                                            
(Startled Baran gets up and gasps and pulls out his
lightsaber)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Whoa! Easy Baran it's just me.
                                                            
(Baran looking confused and exhausted puts away his weapon
and touches his face)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran, I want to talk to you about
what happened at the council
earlier today.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Han)
I have nothing to talk about
regarding the council. I do not
take back what I said. I am
ashamed at what the Jedi have
become.
                                                            

72.

                       HAN
      (To Baran)
You must understand the position
you have put the council in. Now I
understand why you...
                                                            
(Baran shakes his head in anger and starts to walk out)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Baran)
Baran...
                                                            
(Baran slams the door behind him cutting Han's sentence
short)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
...It wasn't your fault...
                                                            
(Han looks down in saddness and regrets having taken the
councils side against his brother)
                                                            
(Camera cuts over to Baran)
                                                            
(Baran walks to his ship and sits inside it...He thinks for
a second and knows what he must do)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To himself)
Computer, set a course for
Kashyyyk.
                                                            
(Baran looks up)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To himself)
There is someone I must see before
I do this...
                                                            
(Baran takes off for Kashyyyk to his father's resting place)
                                                            
(Camera cuts to Baran walking up towards Luke's grave)
                                                            
(Baran takes a knee, distrout as ever)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To himself)
Father...I know I haven't been
around much to see you anymore.
But I am lost right now and your
the only one I can talk to.
                                                            
(Baran looks up to the sky with tears in his eyes)
                                                            

73.

                       BARAN
      (To himself)
No one has understood me, I've
tried to reason with the council,
I've done everything I can to
impress them and to live by the
code. You know I've tried
everything. Maybe this will change
their minds...
                                                            
(Baran bows his head to think for a few seconds and takes a
deep breath)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To himself)
There is something I must do
Father, something I couldn't do
while you were here. But what ever
happens, I beg you, please do not
think less of me. You will be
forever in my heart.
                                                            
(Baran places a flower on top of the grave and kisses it)
                                                            
(Kasus enters the scene behind Baran)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
I thought I might find you here...
                                                            
(Baran turns around startled by the noise and sees Kasus
walk into view)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Believe it or not, I come here
every so often to pay my respects
to my old Master...He was a great
friend, and a powerful Jedi, not
quite as powerful as you but still
great...
                                                            
(Baran looks down)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
I dont know how powerful I really
am...When the council controls
your destiny it is impossible to
know anything.
                                                            
(Kasus looks to the sky and smiles)
                                                            

74.

                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
God, I never could understand why
the Jedi want you to have no
feelings towards the people we
love, or towards ourselves for
that matter...Without emotions we
are nothing but droids, we no
longer act off instinct but rather
what they have molded your mind to
believe is right. And thats what
the Jedi want, they want you to
become a mindless machine, so they
will be able to control you.
                                                            
(Baran opens his eyes realizing the final truth that appears
in Kasus' voice, Baran stands up)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
Is it true what you said?...About
my father training you in the ways
of the Jedi Code?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Every word of it.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
And were you always there watching
out for me? Were you a friend to
the Skywalkers since your young
years?
                                                            
(Kasus nods his head)
                                                            
(Baran looks overwhelmed)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
You must forgive me, this is all
alot to take in. Why did no one
tell me of this? Were they afraid
to let me know the truth about our
family?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Baran, you must open your eyes to
the world. The council cannot tell
you anything...
                                                            

75.

                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
No, you were right...About
everything, about me, about the
council...Everything you
said....it was true...
                                                            
(Baran shakes his head in disbelief)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
When I look at you Baran, I see
myself. When I was your age I was
the same way, confused about my
powers and distrout about
everything.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
What was it that finally made you
decide to take the path of the
Dark Side?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Well, no one can ever really
explain what turns people to the
dark side...but mostly its
power...I wanted more, I wanted to
be known far and wide for the
things I could do...I felt that my
path in life was hidden from me
and I wanted to be free. Free to
learn the force with no boundarys,
be able to do and accomplish
whatever I dreamed. That is the
true ways of the force, and of the
Dark Side. Why do you ask?
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
MY path is now hidden from me. I
thought the Jedi had all the
answers. I wish I could go back, I
wish none of this would have
happened, I wish things could go
back to the way they were when
there was peace and understanding
in the galaxy.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
So do all who live to see such
times, but that is not for them to
            (MORE)

76.

                       KASUS (cont'd)
decide. You believe your path is
hidden from you because the one
thing you have wanted all your
life, the one thing you were
destined for is now gone.
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
If only the council could see what
I am capable of and harness my
power instead of pushing it aside
things would be different. But
they are so ignorant with pride
that they fear the one thing they
desire.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
I learned very quickly that the
council is a corrupt system. They
say they want what is best for the
galaxy when really, without
knowing it, their minds are bent
on its rule. Now what you have to
ask yourself is, what does your
heart really desire? What is it
that you really want Baran?
                                                            
(Baran turns around and walks up to Kasus.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
...Teach me...There is nothing for
me back on Coruscant. The council
wants my exile maybe even my
death. I want to learn the ways of
the Dark Side, I want to know the
true power of the force, I want to
be free as you are now to become
what my destiny has chosen, but
most of all I want
revenge...Revenge over the Jedi
and all who have opposed me.
                                                            
(Baran takes a knee.)
                                                            
                       BARAN
      (To Kasus)
I pledge myself to you, Darth
Kasus, I put my fate in your
hands...please, train me...
                                                            

77.

(Kasus closes his eyes to take it all in)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Yeeessss, I foresee you to become
the most powerful Sith ever. The
force is immensly strong with you
young Skywalker. The answers you
seek will soon come to you.
                                                            
(Kasus opens his eyes and looks down at Baran)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
Henceforth you shall be known as
Darth.....Vulcanus, the bringer of
fire and destruction to the
Republic. The uniter of all the
Dark Side. Peace is a lie, there
is only passion. Through passion,
you gain strength. Through
strength, you gain power. Through
power, you gain victory. Through
victory, your chains are broken.
The Force shall free you. There is
no peace, there is anger. There is
no fear, there is power.
There is no death, there IS
immortality. There is no weakness,
there is the Dark Side.
You are the Heart of Darkness. You
know no fear, but rather you
instill it in your enemies. You
are the destroyer of worlds. You
know the power of the Dark Side.
You are the fire of hate.
All the Universe bows before you.
Do you pledge yourself to the
Darkness? For if you do you will
find true life, in the death of
the light.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
Yes...My Master.
                                                            
(Kasus smiles and puts his hands on Baran's face. He notices
the mark of the Jedi on the side of Barans neck)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
The mark of the Jedi...
                                                            

78.

(Kasus takes out his lightsaber and turns it on)
                                                            
(Baran stays still on his knees the evil look never leaving
his face)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Baran)
You mind belongs to darkness now.
You no longer need to carry the
burden of which has been bestoed
upon you.
                                                            
(Kasus then begins to burn the Jedi tattoo off of Baran's
neck with his lightsaber)
                                                            
(Baran neither winces or stirrs in pain, he is focused and
looking ahead the whole time)
                                                            
(Kasus finishes and puts his lightsaber away)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Now rise Lord Vulcanus, there is
much to do if you are to learn the
true power of the force.
                                                            
(Vulcanus rises to his feet and stands there looking over to
his new master)
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
What must I do Master?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
General Castell has become a
renegade. He plans to overthrow me
and rule the Dark Side. He must be
taken care of accordinly.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
Very good my lord.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Then it is done. Once more the
Sith will rule the Galaxy. And
together, my apprentice, we will
bring peace.
                                                            
(Kasus smiles and Vulcanus brings his eyes to the ground)
                                                            

79.

                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Come, we leave for Korriban
immediately.
                                                            
(Kasus walks off followed by Vulcanus as they descend into
the dark of the night)
                                                            
(Scene cuts to the sound of the slow imperial march)
                                                            
 
INT. HAN FEARS THE WORST - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera cuts to Han in bed and he suddenly awakes to great
pain in the force...greater than the night of his fathers
death)
                                                            
(Han sits up and puts his hands to his face and brushes back
his hair, he is sweating alot and breathing hard)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
...Baran?...
                                                            
(Han looks around in confusion and rests back down)
                                                            
(He closes his eyes and shakes his head in dismissal)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
...no...
                                                            
(He relaxes and goes back to sleep)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. TO TATOOINE - DAY
                                                            
(Camera cuts to the Jedi Council and Han who looks like he
had a rough night)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Council)
So it is settled then...once Auron
is well enough to be relased from
sickbay we will present him with
the title of Jedi Master.
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Durron)
Not only that but my old padawan
will also need to get out and
recover more systems...this war is
            (MORE)

80.

                       EXAR (cont'd)
still far from over.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Exar)
Very true Master Exar, very true.
                                                            
                       STOSS
      (To Durron)
Has the Senate asked any questions
on the whereabouts of Chancellor
Brogherek?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Stoss)
A few politicians have approached
me, but I told them the Chancellor
liked it so much on Onderon that
he decided to stay and see the
final repercussions of the deal
through.
                                                            
                       MORTUM
      (To Durron)
Excellent, that should buy us
enough time to figure out a plan
to recover the Chancellor and
bring him back with no
questioning.
                                                            
(Durron turns to Han)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
Master Skywalker is everything
alright? You have not said a word
since this council has taken
order.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
I'm quite alright Master Durron,
thank you for the concern
nonetheless. I am simply tired, a
slight disturbance in my mind kept
me awake last night.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
Ah, of course.
                                                            

81.

                       HAN
      (To Durron)
There is one point of business
that I would like to know more
about though Master Durron.
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
What would that be Han?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
The final decision of my brother's
fate sir...When will it take
place?
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
Ah, yes I should have known this
would come up. Which reminds me,
the Hutt's have contacted me from
Tatooine, there is a situation at
hand which needs immediate Jedi
attention. I would much rather you
not be here for your brother's
hearing, so to not cloud the
decision further. Hence you shall
go to Tatooine to deal with this
conflict.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
But Master, I must be here, if...
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Han)
You orders are clear Master
Skywalker, you must leave at once.
                                                            
(Han is very dissapointed that he may never see his brother
again for he is sure the council will sentence Baran to
death)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Durron)
Yes Master.
                                                            
(Han gets up and exits out the council room)

INT. CASTELL'S FINAL STAND - DAY
                                                            
(Camera pans to Kasus sitting down and Vulcanus is standing
by his side as they await a check-up call from General
Castell)
                                                            
(General Castell enters, bows to the two Sith, and deploys
his call)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus and
       Vulcanus)
Lord Kasus...Lord Vulcanus...
                                                            
(Both sith lords nod to the General)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
My lord, we have safely aprhended
the Chancellor here to Korriban,
we are negotiating right now with
the Onderians a ransom for a trade
with their Queen.
                                                            
(Kasus looks umimpressed and Vulcanus has yet to look up
from his hood)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
We have the Chancellor under the
heaviest guard in the galaxy, any
attempt by the Jedi to rescue him
would be futile.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Gen. Castell)
Well done General, you have proven
loyalty to the Dark Side, your
place in this war is now done.
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Thank you my lord.
                                                            
(General Castell starts to walk away then hesitates and back
tracks to face Kasus again)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Forgive me my lord, but what do
you mean my place in this war is
now done?
                                                            

83.

(Kasus smiles and turns his glance to his apprentice)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Lord Vulcanus...
                                                            
(Finally Vulcanus picks his eyes up from the floor and
slowly turns his head towards the General who looks
confused)
                                                            
(Vulcanus draws his lightsaber which is still blue and walks
down the stairs towards Castell)
                                                            
(Castell backs up a few steps in uneasiness)
                                                            
(Vulcanus draws his lightsaber which is still blue and walks
down the stairs towards Castell)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Lord Kasus! I have served you for
over five years! Have I not been a
good ally?! I have done everything
you have asked of me!
                                                            
(The general continues to back up while Vulcanus moves
closer and closer)
                                                            
                       GEN. CASTELL
      (To Kasus)
Lord Kasus please, I beg you! Lord
Kasus!! MY LORD! NO!!
                                                            
(Castell makes a break for it when Vulcanus comes close but
Vulcanus jumps and brings him down with one swipe of his
lightsaber through his mid-section killing him)
                                                            
(Vulcanus walks back up to join his Master a top the stairs)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Well done my young apprentice, you
grow stronger by the minute.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
My lord, the Jedi decide my fate
tonight, what action must we take?
                                                            

84.

                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Does your heart still burn for
revenge as it did the day you gave
yourself to darkness?
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
My desire grows with every waking
second my leige.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Then there is but one course of
action to take...
                                                            
(Vulcanus turns to look at Kasus who has an evil grin across
his face)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. REIGN OF VULCANUS - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera pans to a dark night with rain and lightning, and a
dreary forest)
                                                            
(Darth Kasus is walking side by side with Darth Vulcanus,
neither are speaking and each have their hoods up)
                                                            
(Dramatic music plays in the still of the night and both
come to a stop and face eachother once the woodland area
ends and the Jedi temple is visible)
                                                            
(Kasus faces Vulcanus and force pulls Vulcanus' lightsaber
to him)
                                                            
(Kasus then replaces it by handing Vulcanus another
lightsaber which will produce a red blade)
                                                            
(Vulcanus looks down at it and holds it with both hands
getting a feel for it)
                                                            
(NOTE: All dialogue in this scene will be faded and over
taken by the music playing)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Do not hesitate, do what must be
done Lord Vulcanus...
                                                            
(Vulcanus saying nothing bows his head and walks on to the
Jedi Temple)
                                                            

85.

(Camera stays on Kasus as he walks back into the forest and
he pulls out a com-link)
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Dark Guards
       via com-link)
Send a band of assasins to
Tatooine to take care of Han
Skywalker.
                                                            
(Vulcanus enters the Jedi Temple and goes right into the
Council room where he finds the council already in session
waiting for his arrival. He walks slowly in with his hood
still up and the lightsaber hidden within his robes. He
stands in the center facing Durron)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Vulcanus)
Baran, we've been expecting you,
before we get started is there
anything you would like to say?
                                                            
(The council leans forward to hear what Vulcanus is about to
say but nothing comes out at first)
                                                            
(Vulcanus head never leaves the bowing stage and he slowly
takes out the lightsaber Darth Kasus had given him. He feels
it up and down and his face shows pure evil emotion as he
looks up at the council)
                                                            
(Without hesitation the red blade comes out and he lunges at
two no-name Jedi Masters and cuts them down instantly.
-Dramatic music-)
                                                            
(The council is stunned at what has just happened and
hesitate to pull their lightsabers out)
                                                            
(The camera cuts to Han on Tatooine, he is sitting in a room
alone meditating and sorting out his thoughts)
                                                            
(The door to his room gets kicked in and a handful of dark
guards pile into the room)
                                                            
                       DARK GUARD
      (To Han)
Jedi Master Han Skywalker, you are
hereby under arrest.
                                                            
(All the dark guards point their blaster pistols at Han's
back)
                                                            

86.

                       DARK GUARD
      (To Han)
You must come with us immediately.
                                                            
(Han never turning his head to face the guards opens his
robes just a crack to unviel a blaster pistol just under his
arm)
                                                            
(He fires through his robes killing two of the dark guards
then gets up and takes his lightsaber out and cuts down the
rest very easily)
                                                            
(Two galactic soldiers come running into the room just after
the action has ended)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Han)
Sir, what happened? Are you
alright?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
Not a problem soldier, just a
couple of renegade...
                                                            
(Han's sentence is cut short by an immense force rift of
which knocks him off his feet)
                                                            
(He lays on the ground in pain hearing the slaughter of the
council in the background of his mind)
                                                            
(Han looks horrified that if what he perseives to be true is
indeed the truth)
                                                            
                       GALACTIC SOLDIER
      (To Han)
Sir, what is it?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Galactic
       Soldier)
We must leave at once, I fear
council is in danger!
                                                            
(Galactic soldiers take off towards the shuttle and Han
staggers behind them still feeling incredible disturbance)
                                                            
(Camera cuts back to the dramatic kick ass music and
Vulcanus taking out the council)
                                                            

87.

(Vulcanus works his way around the council killing Masters
left and right who try to challenge him but do not stand up
to it.)
                                                            
(When Vulcanus pauses there is only a few left, Mortum,
Stoss, Exar, and Durron)
                                                            
(All the Jedi Masters have their lightsabers drawn and are
still astonished at what has just happened, all but Durron
who is keen and focused)
                                                            
(Exar and Mortum lunge after Vulcanus and he grabs Exar with
the force grip choke and cuts down Mortum with one hand)
                                                            
(He throws Exar into the wall and he falls to the ground
unconscious. Only Stoss and Durron remain)
                                                            
(Stoss looks horrified and Vulcanus pulls Stoss toward his
using the force and shoves his lightsaber right through
Stoss's mid-section. Stoss, lifeless, falls to the floor
leaving Vulcanus to face only Durron -Who has a double sided
blue lightsaber-)
                                                            
(Durron takes his fighting stance and without hesitation
Vulcanus leaps in the air and clashes with him)
                                                            
(Durron and Vulcanus exchange incredible techniques and
fight all over the council floor)
                                                            
(When suddenly Durron is caught off guard and Vulcanus push
forces him out a window)
                                                            
(Durron holds on to the side of the Temple and force jumps
up onto the roof)
                                                            
(Vulcanus quickly follows by jumping out the shattered
window onto a speeding car goings by and force jumps onto
the roof within a second)
                                                            
(Vulcanus lands on the roof of the temple to find Durron
breathing heavily and his lightsaber non-shalauntly at his
side. The rain is heavy and thunder shakes the roof and
lighting is apparent in the background.)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Vulcanus)
You cannot win Baran!
                                                            
(Vulcanus ignores the comment and runs at Durron full speed
bringing his lightsaber back and making a cut which is
blocked by Durron)
                                                            

88.

(Another huge addition to the battle rages on in which they
cover the entire ground of the roof)
                                                            
(They meet in the middle and pause for a second and stare at
eachother. Durrons hair is soaking wet and water is beeding
off of his face. Vulcanus's hood is still up but wet and his
eyes carry nothing but anger and hatred)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Vulcanus)
It is over Baran, there is no way
you can beat me. Give up.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Durron)
I haven't even begun...
                                                            
(A short battle sequence takes place once again and Vulcanus
makes a clever spin move, ducks down, and slices both of the
back of Durron's knee caps clean off)
                                                            
(Durron squeals in pain and falls to the ground and his
lightsaber goes sliding towards the edge of the roof. He is
having trouble keeping up)
                                                            
(Vulcanus turns his back, puts his lightsaber away and
starts to walk off)
                                                            
(Durron looks up and yells in agony and spits blood from his
mouth)
                                                            
                       DURRON
      (To Vulcanus)
YOU FAILED AS A JEDI BARAN! YOU
WILL FAIL AS A SITH!
                                                            
(Vulcanus stops and bends down and picks up Durrons
lightsaber)
                                                            
(Durron looks up blood running from his chin looking pissed
and in pure pain)
                                                            
(Vulcanus turns on both sides of Durrons lightsaber and
throws it at Durron so its spinning fast)
                                                            
(Durron gets one last shriek in before his own lightsaber
spins through his neck decapitating him instantly. His body
falls to the flooded floor for the last time)
                                                            
(Vuclanus spares no emotion at the fall of the council
master and jumps down back into the council room)
                                                            

89.

(He enters back through the broken window to find Exar in
the corner stirring and struggling to get up after Vulcanus
careened him into the wall)
                                                            
(Vulcanus walks over and picks him up by the neck with one
hand holding him high in the air)
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Exar)
Where is Master Skywalker?
                                                            
(Exar having trouble speaking through the choke holds on to
the grip of Vulcanus)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Vulcanus)
Baran....why....
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Exar)
WHERE IS HE!!??
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Vulcanus)
huuuuhhhhh aauhhhhh,
TATOOINE!....huuuuhhhh he's on
Tatooine!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Exar)
When he returns tell him.....the
Sith have risen once more.....
                                                            
(Exars eyes get big and Vulcanus releases him to the ground
where he lays holding his throat struggling to breath)
                                                            
(Vulcanus walks out and back to the woods of which he and
Darth Kasus entered. He disappears into the darkness)
                                                            
(Cut scene)
                                                            
 
INT. HAN RETURNS TO HORROR - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera cuts to Han returning to Coruscant to find the Jedi
Temple in smoke)
                                                            
(Han enters the Temple to find all the Masters dead and cut
up on the ground. He walks around to check each one for
signs of life but doesn't find any)
                                                            
(Han is horrified to learn that all the Masters were killed
by lightsaber, then he notices Exar stirring on the ground)
                                                            

90.

                       HAN
      (To Exar)
Master Exar!
                                                            
(Han goes running to the fallen Masters aid and picks his
head up in his arms)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Exar)
Master Exar?....
                                                            
(Exar struggles and finally comes to, his nose is bleeding
and his neck has red marks on it. He opens his eyes to look
up at Han)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
...Han?...
                                                            
(Exar reaches up and touches Han's face)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Exar)
Master what happened here?
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
He...He caught us off
guard...there was nothing we could
do...He...He...
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Exar)
Master who?...Who could have done
all this?
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
I didn't believe my own eyes as I
watched...He slaughtered them all,
he did not stop, we didn't stand a
chance.
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Exar)
Master....Who?
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
...Baran...
                                                            

91.

(Han looks horrified and he starts to shake, his eyes swell
up with almost tears and he falls backwards and stumbles to
the ground)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
....NO...NO!! IT CANT BE!
                                                            
(Han brings his hand up to rest against his face still in
disbelief that his little brother had caused so much havoc
to everything he believes in)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Exar)
...Where? Where is he!?
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
I dont know...
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Ex)
WHERE CAN I FIND HIM!?
                                                            
(Exar closes his eyes and uses the force to feel where Baran
would be. A quick flash comes into his mind of a bridge. He
looks up at Han horrified.)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
....The Bridge of Bosagul, the
ancient Sith acid plant on
Korriban...
                                                            
(Han gets up immediatly and makes a break for the door)
                                                            
                       EXAR
      (To Han)
But Han....HAN!!!
                                                            
(Han ignores Exar and runs to his ship where he powers it up
and takes off for Korriban)
                                                            
(Cut scene)

meditating)
                                                            
(Vulcanus walks into view and Kasus awakes)
                                                            

92.

(Vulcanus takes a knee in front of Kasus)
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
My lord, the Jedi Council is no
more.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Excellent Darth Vulcanus, did you
leave none alive?
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
All but one sire, his fate will be
to tell Han Skywalker of my
presence there.
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
Good, good, you have learned well
my young apprentice. But now is
the final test.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
My lord...?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
When word reaches his ears of the
council being slaughtered by your
hand, the Jedi Master Han
Skywalker will rush to find you.
You must wait for him on the Dam
of Bosaguel, the acid plant.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
Will he be able to locate me sir?
                                                            
                       KASUS
      (To Vulcanus)
The force will guide him to you.
Then on Bosaguel, you will
confront him, and destroy him!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Kasus)
Yes my master.
                                                            
(Vulcanus bows and walks out to Bosaguel)
                                                            

93.

(Kasus stays in his chambers and he walks over to a closet
door)
                                                            
(When he opens the door the mask of Darth Vader is inside)
                                                            
(Kasus looks over to where Vulcanus had exited, then closes
his eyes and turns his glance to the ground and to the
helmet)

EXT. THE FATE OF A FAMILY - NIGHT
                                                            
(Camera pans to a dark night on Bosagul. It is snowing
lightly and Vulcanus stands alone on the Dam of Acid located
near the Sith Stronghold)
                                                            
(Vulcanus's hood is up and he looks pissed but a single tear
runs down his cheek)
                                                            
(He sees a starship in the distance and he instantly feels
Han's presence aboard it)
                                                            
(Han gets out of his star ship and looks over to the dam and
sees the silhouette of his brother in the distance)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
Baran...
                                                            
(Han looks around for a way across the acidic water onto the
dam and spots a small platform which he leaps onto and uses
the force to push himself across the acid)
                                                            
(Two royal dark guards equipped with jet packs walk up from
behind Vulcanus and go to either side of him as all three
watch Han make his way to the dam)
                                                            
                       DARK GUARD
      (To Vulcanus)
Lord Vulcanus?
                                                            
(Vulcanus says nothing just lowers his head and closes his
eyes with a livid look on his face and slightly trembling
looks up to Han)
                                                            
(The dark guards look over at eachother then back at
Vulcanus)
                                                            
                       DARK GUARD
      (To Vulcanus)
My lord?
                                                            

94.

                       VULCANUS
      (To Dark Guards)
Kill him...
                                                            
(The dark guards nod at eachother and turn their jet packs
on and take out their blasters)
                                                            
(Han still soaring on the platform towards the dam sees the
guards and takes out his lightsaber and turns it on. He
takes his fighting stance and waits for the onslaught)
                                                            
(The dark guards fire their blasters as they near Han. The
rays are blocked and sent back by Han but the guards are
quick to duck out of the way.)
                                                            
(When the guards come nearer to Han they take out double
sided electric swords and soar in above the Jedi Master.)
                                                            
(Han cuts down one instantly but gets clipped in the back by
the other who rockets away and makes another pass)
                                                            
(On the second pass Han slices the guards jetpack making him
spin out of control and explode.)
                                                            
(Han looks over at Vulcanus, spins his lightsaber and puts
it away.)
                                                            
(Vulcanus looks unimpressed and lowers his head and
meditates to prepare himself.)
                                                            
(Han gets to the dam and leaps off the platform and climbs
up a plate of rocks up to the dams bridge.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
BARAN!!!!
                                                            
(Vulcanus turns his head to look at Han who climbs his way
to the top with his robe tattered and torn in the back)
                                                            
(When Han comes close Vulcanus turns his body to him)
                                                            
(Han looks at his brother breathing hard)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
Baran what have you done!?
                                                            
(Vulcanus says nothing still but just looks at his brother.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
I SAID WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?
                                                            

95.

                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
I have become more powerful than
you can ever imagine brother!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
NO! You turned your back on the
order! You broke the oath! You
submitted yourself to evil! And
you've killed the council! You've
done nothing more than destroy the
one thing you used to hold dear!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
The Republic and the council are
the ones who turned their back on
me!
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
Baran, Darth Kasus is evil! He's
twisted you mind into darkness so
now... so now you are nothing more
than a puppet to do his bidding!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
No your wrong Han! The Jedi are
evil! I watched as they tore apart
the galaxy and I did nothing to
stop them. You have gone too far
and now your time for ruling this
galaxy is at an end! Either join
me and become my apprentice Han or
suffer the same fate as the
council. The decision is
yours...if you will not join me..I
WILL kill you...
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
I will never join the Sith! I live
for the code! The same code you
swore to protect the day you
became MY apprentice!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
I took what I needed from you!
Nothing more! My new master opened
my eyes to the corruption and I
swore a new oath...One to serve
            (MORE)

96.

                       VULCANUS (cont'd)
the darkness, one to bring the
galaxy to peace, and one to
destroy the Jedi!
                                                            
(Han looks horrified at the words coming out of his brothers
mouth.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
Then the councils preminitions
were correct...Master Durron was
right...You strive off your anger
and your lust for power...You
truly were never meant to be a
Jedi...
                                                            
(Vulcanus looks pissed as ever, takes out his lightsaber and
force lunges horizontally at Han)
                                                            
(Han takes out his lightsaber and looks up to Vulcanus)
                                                            
(Both come into view and then BULLET TIME! Everything slows
down untill both sabers come to a clash)
                                                            
(As soon as the clash happens it goes to real time and
Vulcanus lands on his feet next to Han and the most epic
lightsaber battle in the history of the galaxy takes place.)
                                                            
(Awesome fight music is playing and both are whipping out
moves that people didnt know exsisted)
                                                            
(The fight rages on neither slowing down or stopping to
rest)
                                                            
(After a big clash both do a sweet spin shit with their
lightsaber like Anakin and Obiwan do in revenge of the sith
and then both clash in the center followed by a force push
duel)
                                                            
(Both fly back and land on their backs but both are quick to
get up and run full speed at eachother and begin to fight
again)
                                                            
(More spectactular moves take place along with acrobatic
force jumps and moves. Vulcanus throws objects at Han using
the force but Han is quick to block them away)
                                                            
(Both stop and get down in attack positions of which they
come out of when they see the other doesn't mean to attack
right away)
                                                            

97.

                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
I have failed you Baran, as a
master, as a brother, and a
friend. I have failed you and for
that I am truly sorry.
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
Sorry?! Sorry that you kept me
from learning the truth for so
long!? Sorry that you were not
born with the abilities that I
was!?
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
That is enough Baran! I never was
envious of your strength! I
accepted that the Force chose you
and I harnessed your abilities
instead of lusting after them!
                                                            
                       VULCANUS
      (To Han)
You lie!
                                                            
(Han shakes his head)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
Baran you are my brother! The same
blood runs through both our veins!
                                                            
(Vulcanus looks livid and says nothing back.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
In fact you were more than a
brother to me Baran! You became my
son. You became my son after YOUR
NEW MASTER KILLED OUR FATHER! Do
you not remember!? Do you not
remember the pain Kasus put us
through!? But that day I made a
promise to father! I promised to
protect the code, and to protect
you...at all costs! The same he
did until he used his last breath
on the battlefield!
                                                            
(Vulcanus looks up at Han pissed as shit)
                                                            

98.

                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
And if he were here today...! He
would do the right thing!... He
would bring you down...
                                                            
(Vulcanus is stunned by the comment and attacks out of pure
anger)
                                                            
(The battle rages on for a while with both warriors growing
tired)
                                                            
(After a sweet saber sequence Vulcanus starts to falter and
Han out manuevers him makes a quick move and cuts Vulcanus's
right arm off at the shoulder. His lightsaber careens over
the end and into the acid)
                                                            
(Vulcanus yells out in pain and is cut short by Han's blade
piercing his right lung after a sweet spin move)
                                                            
(Vulcanus now gasping for air falls to his knees)
                                                            
(Han takes his lightsaber out his his brothers chest and
force pushes Vulcanus over towards the ledge)
                                                            
(Vulcanus tumbles over but grabs on to a hold with his left
arm keeping him from falling into the acid)
                                                            
(Han turns his lightsaber off and puts it away, he is
exhausted and sweating)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
I TRAINED YOU MYSELF! I TOOK YOU
UNDER MY WING EVEN AFTER THE
COUNCIL FORBADE IT!
                                                            
(There is no answer just the gasping for air comming from
Vulcanus's mouth)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
I TAUGHT YOU THE OLD WAYS...! THE
WAYS OF THE JEDI, NOT THE SITH!
                                                            
(Vulcanus in much pain looks over at Han and yells)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To Vulcanus)
YOU WERE A SKYWALKER!!! YOU WERE A
SKYWALKER!....
                                                            

99.

(Han drops to his knees crying and turns his head away from
Vulcanus and closes his eyes.)
                                                            
(Vulcanus still holding on struggles to keep his grip)
                                                            
(Han lifts his hand up in the air and flicks his wrist
without looking at Vulcanus)
                                                            
(Vulcanus's grip starts to loosen and he starts to yell and
finally he loses it and starts to fall towards the acidic
water yelling all the way down)
                                                            
(Vulcanus falls into the acid and makes a splash and which
he comes up to surface he is screaming in extreme pain as
the acid eats away at his flesh)
                                                            
(Han is distrout by the sounds of his brother dying, he can
hear every piercing scream comming from Vulcanus's mouth)
                                                            
(After a while Vulcanus sinks into the water and the scream
cease)
                                                            
(Han crying lies in the snow resting his face against the
ground.)
                                                            
                       HAN
      (To himself)
Baran! (cries) Bar-ran!...
                                                            
(The camera fades black and when the screen reapears it
shows Vulcanus crawling out of the acidic water and onto a
plate of rocks)
                                                            
(He grunts and yells in pain still and rests on his back and
moans)
                                                            
(A dark figure walks up and stands over him, it is Darth
Kasus, he stares at his apprentice as the wind blows his
robes around)
                                                            
(He bends down and puts his hand on Vulcanus's head and when
he stands back up you notice he has something in his hand)
                                                            
(The camera goes to close up and it is clear that what is in
Darth Kasus's hand is the helmet of Darth Vader)
                                                            
(The dramatic music comes to an end and the screen fades to
black)
                                                            
(Once it fades to black and there is silence Vader breathes
once and then the saddest music in the world comes on
followed by stars appearing in the darkness and finally the
credits roll)
                                                            

100.

(Scroll credits, music keeps playing.)
                                                            
THE END
                                                            


FADE OUT.

I think you should send it to George Lucas and have him look over it. It needs some work for it to be Hollywood worthy. Average.

From jacob Date 9/29/2010 ****
epic

From Griffin Date 12/1/2005 ****
I liked your script up until the ending- I just didn't like the way it directly paraphrased Episode 3's lines, and the guy crawling out of the acid to don the Vader Helmet (which was burned at the end of ROTJ) was a bit forced. Very well written, though, and fun to read.

From Hiromotoman Date 9/1/2005 **1/2
It was really good, but the ending was too much like Episode III. If you tweak the ending so it doesn't remind people of Episode III, this will be a masterpiece.

From Kevin Jordan Date 8/20/2005 ***
Really Good. I liked everything about it, especially the last fight and dialogue. Nice work.

From Paul Ranck Date 8/13/2005 ***1/2
Excellent, all i hafta say....
