Back on Endor, the Ewok hops on a deserted
speeder, & the troopers pursue
him, leaving the back entrance to
the energy field generator unguarded.
Han flashes one of his half smiles. Not bad for
a little furball. Inside, the crew’s surprised
by a huge battalion of storm
troopers. Defeated, they’re led back outside.
Then horns go off around the forest, & the troopers
are attacked by a flurry of Ewoks,
some armed with bows & arrows, others
operating catapults or dropping rocks
from hang gliders. A stormtrooper’s
worst nightmare* begins as a rustling in the ferns.
