Episode 169: A Little Brunt-work

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

So, finally, R2 takes matters into his own hands.

[SFX]: vreeeeoooWWWW!!
Anakin: What are you doing?! Take us back!
R2-D2: Out here in the space battle is where all the action is. This is what I was built for.
Anakin: {putting on a helmet} Stop being so macho!
{fighters fly through space towards the Trade Federation headquarters ship}
[SFX]: Vooom...
[SFX]: Vooom...
{a fighter gets destroyed by a shot from enemy fighters}
