Lacus, Kira, Cagalli and Athrun were on the Archangel. So was everyone else who is supposed to be on the Archangel. There was much angst and drama happening on the ship. Lately, Kira had learned that he was the Ultimate Coordinator. Athrun had switched sides and was fighting with them now instead of with their enemies. Cagalli's father had recently died and she had learned that she and Kira were siblings. Lacus's father had also recently died. There was too much drama, they thought.
But there would suddenly be even more drama. "Heat source detected!" shouted the appropriate person on the bridge. "What is it?" asked Captain Ramius. "A really big ship!" cried the helmsman. "It's right next to us!" Suddenly there was a big crashing sound and everyone in the ship fell sideways. "They've boarded us, Captain!"
There were shouts and the sound of laser blasts outside the bridge. Foreboding music started to play - it sounded kind of like a march or something and was really ridiculous to hear because of course there was no orchestra on the ship - and then suddenly the door was blasted open and a man all in black with a big black mask strode in, with loud breaths.
"It's Darth Vader!" cried Captain Ramius in bewilderment, as several Stormtroopers rushed in after him.
"You are unwise to lower your defenses," said Darth Vader.
"Wha-?" she said as a shootout began between the Stormtroopers and her men. The Stormtroopers realized that their guns were only prop guns, and Ramius's men realized that their guns were only 2D, and everyone threw down their weapons in disgust and began to fight hand-to-hand.
After knocking down a few Stormtroopers of their own, Kira and his friends rushed to the bridge to help. It was pretty crazy - the fighting got pushed outside, and Kira found himself fighting Darth Vader (whose lightsaber didn't work without CGI).
"Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. Now release your anger," Darth Vader said to him.
"Kira!" shouted Athrun, coming to help him.
"The force is strong with this one," said Darth Vader, defending himself from Athrun. He was able to use his Force-ish abiliites, however, to throw Athrun back. But he was mostly okay.
"Your overconfidence is your weakness," shouted Kira, then wondered how he had come up with those words.
"Kira!" called Cagalli, seeing that her (newly-discovered) brother was fighting a big all-in-black guy much taller than he was.
"A sister," said Darth Vader with delight. "You have a sister."
"Yeah, I have a sister!" shouted Kira. "What on earth are you saying?"
"You cannot hide forever," Darth Vader said, more to himself than to Kira. "You don't know the power of the dark side. I must obey my master. I find your lack of faith disturbing. Don't fail me again, Admiral. Luke, I am your father!" His voice reached a fever pitch as he said the last and after he had said it he fell over backwards and lay motionless on the ground.
"Oh, my," said Lacus, looking at Kira and the prone Darth Vader and all of the Stormtroopers, who lay groaning on the floor.
"Well," said Kira, "I guess we should get them all to the brig. Come on."
They began to confine their prisoners to the brig (there were a lot). "You know," said Lacus, "the brig didn't hold me that well, so how are we sure that it will keep Darth Vader and his men?"
"I have no idea," said Kira. "But we only have one brig."
"Is Dearka still in the brig?" asked Athrun. "I really don't remember. I wonder how he'll feel about all of these Stormtroopers." So they locked everyone up. Then Lacus set Haro free to taunt them.

What none of them had known, of course, was that some of the stormtroopers weren't actually stormtroopers after all. So, in the brig, (which, may I note, had multiple cells; about 10, each large enough to hold about 3 people), three "stormtroopers" took off their masks and looked around, revealing that they really were Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, and Han Solo. At the moment, Han Solo was on a rant about how he really wished Duo was here, because he was certain that the strange teen would have been able to blast his way out of the cell, something Han was completely incapable of, as he had no weapons (not even prop weapons).
Leia was feeling confused. Somehow, she had gone from being disguised as a stormtrooper to escape her imprisonment to actually having to fight as a stormtrooper to avoid being hit by both sides.
Luke was also uncertain of how they had entered this predicament, but he assured Leia and Han that if he meditated, he would be able to open the door with the force.
After two hours of watching him meditate, the others got bored.
They got extremely bored, so bored, in fact, that they fell asleep. When they woke up, the cell door was open.
"Did you do that, kid?" Han asked in amazed admiration of Luke.
Luke blinked sleepily. "I...think so. Or maybe Ben did it," he yawned.
The three of them stood up and hurried out of the cell and down the hall. The hall started shaking from time to time, and they realized that they were in the midst of a battle.
"Never a dull moment," Han quipped grumpily.
"Let's just get out of here," Leia said impatiently.
"This way!" Luke shouted, and headed towards an escape pod.
They ejected into space, and saw the large, white, legged ship that they had been on battling a similar ship that was darker-colored. Then they were out of range.
"Try to contact the fleet," Leia urged.
"What fleet?" Han snapped. "The only fleets around here seem to be theirs."
Luke, Leia, and Han floated for several more hours, until there was a thudding crash and something bumped into their lifeboat. They were surprised when the ship's computer began to turn automatically and react to whatever had tried to bump into it - apparently some sort of small vessel, or another escape pod. All three of them tried their usual method of ripping out wires from panels in order to halt computers and mechanical devices, and very nearly severed life support doing so, but it was too late. The two vessels had docked.
The lifeboat's door swung open, and an attractive teenage redhead in some sort of military uniform stepped inside. "Please, can one of you help me?" she shouted hysterically. "I have a key! Please, just get me out of here!"
