The speeder roars up and over the impregnable war machine. Luke looks back at the walker as it grows smaller in the distance.
LUKE: That armor's too strong for blasters.
On the horizon, another walker moves up past Luke's cockpit window, twisting out of sight as Luke banks and starts another run.
LUKE (into comlink): Rogue Group, use your harpoons and tow cables. Go for the legs. It might be our only chance of stopping them. (to Dack) All right, stand by, Dack.
Dack is at the gunner's controls.
DACK: Luke, we've got a malfunction in fire control. I'll have to cut in the auxiliary.
LUKE: Just hang on. Hang on, Dack. Get ready to fire that tow cable.
Barely keeping his seat in the tumbling ship, Dack struggles to set up his harpoon gun.
BATTLEFIELD: Luke swings his speeder around and heads toward an oncoming walker. Laser bolts and flak fill the air, creating a deadly obstacle course for the tiny craft. Rogue Leader and another snowspeeder fly in tight formation toward the walker as explosions burst all around them.
After sustaining a heavy volley of fire, Luke turns around to see if Dack is all right.
LUKE: Dack? Dack!
Dack is lost. Blood streams down his forehead, which rests on his smoldering controls.
Two Imperial walkers recede in the distance.
SNOW TRENCH AREA: Rebel troops fire the dish-like ray gun while explosions erupt around them.
Two walkers lumber toward the Rebel base as a speeder between them explodes in a ball of flames.
The dish-like ray gun is hit by a laser bolt and instantly explodes.
IMPERIAL SNOW WALKER: Through the cockpit window, Veers and his pilot can see the Rebel power generators in the distance. A hologram of Darth Vader appears on a control panel screen.
VEERS: Yes, Lord Vader. I've reached the main power generator. The shield will be down in moments. You may start your landing.
LUKE (into comlink): Rogue Three.
WEDGE'S SNOWSPEEDER, ROGUE THREE
WEDGE (into comlink): Copy, Rogue Leader.
LUKE (over comlink): Wedge, I've lost my gunner. You'll have to make this shot. I'll cover for you. Set your harpoon. Follow me on the next pass.
WEDGE (into comlink): Coming around, Rogue Leader.
LUKE (into comlink): Steady, Rogue Two
Wedge's speeder races through the legs of one of the monstrous walkers.
WEDGE (to gunner): Activate harpoon.
Wedge's gunner reaches for a firing switch to activate the harpoon.
The harpoon flashes out, and speeds toward the receding legs of the walker.
The harpoon hurtles toward the walker, in an instant it is embedded in one of the walker's legs.
WEDGE (to gunner): Good shot, Janson.
The speeder Rogue Three races around one of the giant walker's feet, trailing the cable behind it.
Continuing around the back foot, Rogue Three then circles the walker around the tail end. Wedge checks his controls and banks around the front of the walker.
WEDGE: One more pass.
JANSON: Coming around. Once more.
The speeder sweeps left to right in front of the giant legs, towing the cable behind it.
JANSON: Once more.
Wedge swings the speeder between the legs of the giant walker.
JANSON: Cable out! Let her go!
WEDGE: Detach cable.
The cable release on the back of the speeder snaps loose and the cable drops away.
JANSON: Cable detached.
BATTLEFIELD: The speeder zooms away into the distance. The tangled legs of the enormous war machine attempt a step, but as they do the giant Imperial walker begins to topple.
It teeters for a moment, and then crashes onto the icy ground, sending snow and metal pieces flying. The troops in the trenches cheer at the sight of the crashing walker. An officer gives a signal to his men and Rebel troops charge the fallen war machine.
TRENCH OFFICER: Come on!
The troops run toward the downed walker, followed by two Rebel speeders flying overhead. The speeders fire off multiple rounds with their weapons and the walker erupts with a fiery explosion. Wedge lets out a triumphant yell, banking his speeder away from the fallen walker.
WEDGE (into comlink): Whooha! That got him!
LUKE (into comlink): I see it, Wedge. Good work.
