Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope. What’s this? What is what?!? He asked you a question… What is that? Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope. Oh, he says it’s nothing, sir. Merely a malfunction. Old data. Pay it no mind. Who is she? She’s beautiful. I’m afraid I’m not quite sure, sir. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi… I think she was a passenger on our last voyage. A person of some importance, sir — I believe. Our captain was attached to… Is there more to this recording?

All flight trooper, man your stations. All flight troops, man your stations. So…you got your reward and you’re just leaving then? That’s right, yeah! I got some old debts I’ve got to pay off with this stuff. Even if I didn’t, you don’t think I’d be fool enough to stick around here, do you? Why don’t you come with us? You’re pretty good in a fight. I could use you. Come on! Why don’t you take a look around? You know what’s about to happen, what they’re up against. They could use a good pilot like you. You’re turning your back on them.
How did I get into this mess? I really don’t know how. We seem to be made to suffer. It’s our lot in life. I’ve got to rest before I fall apart. My joints are almost frozen. What a desolate place this is. Where are you going? Well, I’m not going that way. It’s much too rocky. This way is much easier. What makes you think there are settlements over there? Don’t get technical with me. What mission? What are you talking about? I’ve had just about enough of you! Go that way! You’ll be malfunctioning within a day, you nearsighted scrap pile! And don’t let me catch you following me begging for help, because you won’t get it. No more adventures. I’m not going that way.

Just hold them off for a few seconds.
Close up formation. You’d better let her loose. Almost there! I can’t hold them! It’s away! It’s a hit! Negative. Negative! It didn’t go in. It just impacted on the surface. Red Leader, we’re right above you. Turn to point… oh-five, we’ll cover for you. Stay there… I just lost my starboard engine. Get set to make your attack run.
