6. Hoth (BONUS MISSION)
Pilot Journal, Entry Thirty-Three and Six
So much has happened since the Battle of Yavin, it's all a blur to me.
We've been on the run constantly for several years, racing from planet to planet, searching for a safe haven.
For now, we've settled on Hoth, a hellish landscape of frozen dunes and snowdrifts. At least it's well-hidden.
Although our luck these days often seems short-lived.
Han Solo: What's going on?
Princess Leia: The empire's discovered the base.
Han Solo: Oh-oh.
Rebel Trooper: Echo Station Three-T-Eight.
Imperial walkers on the north ridge.
Luke Skywalker: Echo Station Five-Seven. We're on our way.
Princess Leia: No! The shield generator's been taken down!
Rebel Trooper: The transports are almost ready. Just hold them off a few more minutes.
Wooo!, The transports are away! All rebel personnel evacuated! We made it!
A costly battle, and a frantic escape.
But the sacrifices of the Rebel ground forces made sure the transports escaped, and many Rebels likely avoided capture and torture by the Imperial's invasion forces.
