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.
