The stolen Imperial shuttle sits in a clearing of the moon's dark,
primeval forest, dwarfed by the ancient towering trees.

On an adjacent hill, the helmeted Rebel contingent makes its way up a steep trail. Leia & Han are slightly ahead of Chewie & Luke. The
troops of the strike-team squad follow, with Artoo & Threepio
bringing up the rear. Artoo beeps.
Oh, I told you it was dangerous here.
Up ahead, Chewie and Leia reach a crest in the hill & drop suddenly to the ground, signalling the rest of the group to stop. Han & Luke crawl up to take a look.
Not far below them, two Imperial Scouts are wandering through bushes in the valley below. Their two Speeder Bikes are parked nearby.
Shall we try and go around?
It'll take time. This whole party'll be for nothing if they see us.
Chewie & I will take care of this. You stay here.
Quietly, there might be more of them out there.
Hey... it's me.
Han sneaks up behind one of the scouts, steps on a twig & the scout whirls, knocking Han into a tree. The scout shouts for his companion.
Go for help! Go!
The second scout jumps on his speeder bike & takes off, but Chewie gets off a shot on his crossbow laser weapon, causing the scout to crash into a tree. Han and Scout #1 are in a rousing fistfight.
Leia stops & points to where two more scouts are sitting on their speeder bikes, with an unoccupied bike parked nearby.
Over there! Two more of them!
I see them. Wait, Leia!
But Leia doesn't hear him & races for the remaining speeder bike. She starts it up & takes off as Luke jumps on the bike behind her.
