Death Star episode #175 Wedge Antilles and Bail Antilles AND The Second Death Star
"Just wait, Leia, he'll tell you."
Bail says, "I've called a big meting to discuss what we're going to do about the Death star. I timed it so I'd have a chance to speak with Wedge first."
"Am I dismissed?"
"Yes, Leia." Bail says, "Oh, wait, you know what Wedge looks like?"
I nod. "IF you see him, tell him I'm looking for him."
I Nod. "Thank you for telling me."
Bail and Samantha nod. I leave, feeling very overwhelmed with all this knowledge. Fortunately, I see wedge.
I go up to him and say, "Wedge, my father, Bail Organa needs to talk to you."
"Do you know what's it's about?"
"Yes, and I can't really tell you. He needs to."
"Is it important?"
"Where is he?"
The conference room."
"Thank you, Leia."
Wedge goes to the conference room. Bail and Samantha look up from the table.
"Good, Leia found you?"
"I was getting ready to page you."
"Leia said it was important."
"It is. Sit down, Wedge."
"Do you know, Wedge, that Organa is not my real last name."
Wedge looks at him strangely. Why would Bail Organa, head of the Rebellion ask about that?
"No…I didn't know that...but I don't see what it has to do with me."
Bail says, "All right, what about your real parents?"
Wedge looks at him strangely, "You know about my family…?"
"Yes, I know what you mean...my real parents…. I've always known I was adopted, but I still don't see why that has anything to do with anything. No, I know nothing about my real parents. I always assumed they were teenagers…"
Bail shakes his head, "Perhaps you will allow me to set the record straight. Wedge, your last name is Antilles."
"Yes, I know."
"Do you know where it comes from?"
Wedge shakes his head. Bail says, "It means West Indies in French…the language the people speak from the Planet France."
"You know about my last name?"
Bail nods, "Yes…because it is my real last name."
He checks for a reaction from Wedge. Wedge is just looking at him strangely.
Bail says, "We have the same last name because you are my son."
Wedge says, "but I thought Leia was your daughter…"
"She's not. I had her because she was in extreme danger. I had to give you up for adoption...for the good of the Republic. I know that sounds pretty bad, but Leia's the daughter of Samantha and Anakin…Anakin became Darth Vader. Leia has a very strong Force because of who her pares are. Also, because of this, she was extremely important to the Republic. Because your mother was pregnant at the same time, we switched you with her, for Leia's protection. I hope you don't hate me e for t his."
Wedge again stares at Bail. Of course he feels very strange about this...and kind of hurt.
Wedge then says, "Then am I the prince of Alderaan."
Wedge then asks a little angrily, "are you going to let everyone else know that I'm your son, or are you just going to keep this to yourself."
"I have already told most people. Wedge, please, I want you to be my son."
Wedge doesn't say anything. No one does for a long time. Finally, Bail checks his watch.
"We're going to have to go to the meeting. It's starts in 5 minutes. If you ever want to talk to me, Wedge, I'm available."
Samantha then says, "Please don't tell Leia about her father. Her brother will tell her."
"Luke's her bother?"
Bail and Samantha both nod. They all head out for the meeting. While this entire thing has been going on with me, Luke, Lando, Jabba, and the Rebellion, there has been a lot going on with the Empire.
While Vader was chasing Luke, the Empire had immediately begun construction on a second death star. This death star would be many times more powerful than the first one. Vader knew about this Death star, but Luke had been his main concern. The minute Vader lost Luke, he contacts the Emperor.
"My master, my son escaped. I did fight him. I tried turning him to the dark Side, but I failed."
"Does he know that you are his father yet?"
"Yes, I did tell him."
"Very good. Do you know the location of the new Death Star?'
"Of course, my master."
"Go to the Death Star. I am displeased with the progress on it. I want it to be fully operational by the time I arrive."
"You're going to the Death star."
"Yes. Vader says, "So you want me to go there and put them back on schedule?"
"I will go there, my master."
"Very good, Vader."
They cut the transmission, and Vader takes his shuttle to the Death Star. When he arrives, all the stormtroopers and officers aboard the Death Star are waiting for him. The top officer in change of the Death Star is in the front...in the middle of the rows of officers and stormtroopers.
Until next time!
