It’s a Trap

The shield, still up, keeps the attacking

rebels at bay. Pull up! Lando snaps,

& suddenly enemy ships wing

their way into sector 7. It’s a trap!


Admiral Akbar warns. Far too many

Tie fighters swarm around the small fleet

of rebels like gnats.* Then the Death Star fires a beam

at them, scores a direct hit to a ship. Retreat’s


the only option. (Huh… the last time I

checked, the Death Star was able to destroy

an entire planet, so when it only

takes out a single ship it’s slightly


underwhelming.**) The rebels can only yield

to the Star’s fire, hoping Han can knock out the shield.


* Giant steel gnats, that is.

** Right?
