Star Wars: Episode I - The Beginning (AKA DuracellEnergizer's Take On TPM)
Time

Timeline of DuracellEnergizer’s Star Wars Universe

7,500,000,000+ BBY

The Universe is created via the Big Bang.

The Star Wars galaxy is formed.

7,500,000,000 BBY

The Yavin System is formed.

2,000,000 BBY

Wookiees begin to evolve of Kashyyyk.

1,000,000+ BBY

Humans settle on Coruscant.

1,000,000 BBY

The Hutts evolve on Varl.

200,000 BBY

After a climactic battle, the near-human Taungs take over the planet Coruscant. In the battle, a volcano wipes out the major human city and ash covers the sky.

199,998 BBY

The sky over Coruscant is finally free of ash.

100,000 BBY

The Sith species, which will eventually be ruled by the Dark Jedi known as the Dark Lords of the Sith, begins to develop.

On Coruscant, Galactic City (later Republic City and then Imperial City) is built.

95,000 BBY

This is the last time the lower fifty levels of Coruscant see the sun.

36,500 BBY

Around this time, the energy field created by all living things, the Force, is "discovered" on the planet Tython.

28,300 BBY

Around this time, the future Sith ruler Adas is born.

28,000 BBY

The Sith warlord Adas becomes the first (and only) monarch of the entire Sith species (until the arrival of the Dark Jedi from the Second Great Schism) when he uses his military prowess to unite the various Sith nations on Korriban into one society.

27,500 BBY

Humans colonize Alderaan.

27,000 BBY

The first energy weapons, beam tubes, are created.

25,800 BBY

Around this time, Force-users on Tython who have learned to harness a positive energy (the light side) that they call "Ashla" engage in the Force Wars against those who would use the Force to attain personal power. In the wake of the Force Wars on Tython, the followers of the light side will form the monastic warrior society known as the Jedi Order. Its warriors, as they spread throughout the galaxy to aid other cultures, will become known as Jedi Knights.

25,100 BBY

According to some accounts, a heretofore unknown alien race, the original inventors of hyperdrive technology, enters the Corellian system and sells the hyperdrive technology to the Corellians.

25,000 BBY

The Old Republic is formed.

Basic becomes the galactic standard language.

Alderaan becomes an early member of the Old Republic.

Ancient Taung Shadow Warriors relocate from Coruscant to the planet Roon.

25,000-24,000 BBY

The Jedi begin receiving funds from the Republic Senate in return for their rather autonomous services.

24,500 BBY

A single Jedi, Xendor, falls to the dark side. He gathers like-minded Jedi, followers of the dark side of the Force (known in Tython lore as the "Bogan") and creates the Legions of Lettow. The Lettow legions wage war against the Jedi Order in a conflict that will come to be called the First Great Schism.

In the wake of the First Great Schism, those Jedi who delve into the dark side or otherwise defy the Jedi Council are persecuted for their beliefs. Instead, these "fallen" Jedi begin studying their darker arts in secret. This will last for approximately seventeen millennia until the outbreak of the Second Great Schism.

15,000 BBY

The Hutts take over Evocar and rename it Nal Hutta. This move takes place after their original homeworld, Varl, is devastated.

7,032 BBY

The Gungans on Naboo, after a fierce struggle for land with another race, are driven underwater, where they begin to create their legendary underwater habitats.

7,003 BBY

A group of fallen Jedi (Dark Jedi) declare themselves free of the control of the Jedi Council, breaking away from the Jedi Order. They will spend the next three years in hiding, studying the dark side. This event comes to be known as the Second Great Schism.

7,000 BBY

The ancient Taung Shadow Warriors who relocated from Coruscant to the planet Roon now relocate again to the planet Mandalore, which they name as such in honour of their first great leader, Mandalore the First. This culture will come to be known as the Mandalorian culture, and all future leaders will bear the title of "Mandalore" or "Lord Mandalore".

The group of Dark Jedi, who have been hiding their delving into the dark side and studying in secret since the Second Great Schism three years earlier, discover that the Force can be used to bend and manipulate life itself in twisted ways. This pioneers the science of dark side mutations. They finally dare to emerge en masse. This erupts into a conflict between the light side Jedi and the dark side Jedi that comes to be known as the Hundred-Year Darkness.

6,913 BBY

The first archaic lightsabers are created, one of which will come into the possession of the Dark Jedi Karness Muur.

6,900 BBY

The Hundred-Year Darkness ends with a climactic battle on Cobros, where the Dark Jedi are nearly all wiped out, along with most of the life on the planet. Those who survive are exiled from the Republic. Many of the Dark Jedi who were exiled after the Second Great Schism discover the Sith species. The exiles are accepted as gods and rulers by the primitive Sith. They come to rule the species as the "Dark Lords of the Sith", and create the vast Sith Empire far from the Republic. Among the dark side exiles that survived Corbos are Ajunta Pall (whom some believe may have been the first to earn the title of Dark Lord) and Karness Muur.

6,000 BBY

Around this time, the Sith Empire finally begins the cycle of infighting that has become the hallmark of Sith Orders. Having expanded as far as it can without venturing close enough to Old Republic space to be noticed and repelled, the Sith Empire stops expanding, and power struggles begin amongst the Sith Lords and their followers. This cycle will continue for one thousand years, as the Sith Lords drive the Sith Empire toward internal collapse.

5,689 BBY

The lightsaber replaces Force-augmented swords as the weapon of choice among the Jedi.

5,100 BBY

Marka Ragnos is declared Dark Lord of the Sith. He will come to force the other Sith to focus their anger and machinations on him instead of upon expansion, which he fears will only lead to the downfall of the Sith Empire.

5,032 BBY

On Naboo, the Ankura and Otolla Gungans unite.

As a symbol of their new unity, the Gungans build the city of Spearhead (later renamed Otoh Gunga) in Lake Paonga.

At about the same time that the Gungans unite, the civilization that forced them underwater dies out, leaving numerous ruins above and below the surface of Naboo.

5,020 BBY

Gav and Jori Daragon are born on Cinnagar.

5,002 BBY

Gav and Jori Daragon decline Jedi training, preferring instead to continue working with their parents as hyperspace navigators.

5,000 BBY

Dark Lord of the Sith Naga Sadow escapes to Yavin 4 with his followers.

In the wake of the Great Hyperspace War, the Sith Empire quickly begins to collapse, fragmenting into several warring factions.

The Jedi Order is given land on Coruscant. They are expected to create a fortress there in case invaders ever reach Coruscant again. A simple training centre which will one day grow into the great Jedi Temple is constructed over a Force nexus.

The Sith embrace the life of piracy in order to survive, abandoning their former worlds to plunder the regions in between Sith and Republic space.

A sole Sith Lord takes his faction into the Unknown Regions. They begin to rebuilding their civilization and plotting revenge against the Jedi.

4,900-4,861 BBY

Tensions between the Perdoni Coalition and Galactic Republic escalate to all-out war. The Coalition-Republic Crisis begins.

4,671 BBY

The Quadrumvirate, the ruling body of the Coalition, makes an offer to the Sith; in exchange for their services, they will grant the Sith citizenship in the Coalition, giving them new worlds to call their own. The Dark Lord Detori Raje accepts their proposal, officially siding with them against the Republic.

4,666 BBY

Three fourths of the Sith fleet is destroyed at the Battle of Nefeyi, nearly crippling the Sith war machine.

4,663 BBY

The Sith pull out of their contract with the Quadrumvirate and set about blockading their worlds, hoping to obtain sovereignty. The Perdoni Coalition strikes back by obliterating their meager fleet and bombarding the Sith worlds. Most of the Sith, including their Dark Lord Raje, are exterminated in the massacre that will come to be known as the Great Sith Purge.

4,662-4,658 BBY

The few surviving Sith scatter throughout the Galaxy, setting up shop on a number of backwater planets.

4,661 BBY

A joint team of Jedi and Sith infiltrate the Overtower on Perdonis, a massive power plant connected directly to the radioactive core of the world itself.

4,599-4,588 BBY

The worlds of the former Perdoni Coalition are annexed into the Republic.

4,470 BBY

Freedon Nadd, a Jedi apprentice of unequaled enthusiasm and dedication, approaches what he believes to be the end of his apprenticeship and promotion to Jedi Knight. But when the time comes, the Jedi Masters refuse to grant him the title. Stunned at this contradictory action, he seeks the advice of Master Matta Tremayne, who tells him "some things you must find in yourself". She won’t tell him what’s keeping him from Knighthood. Enraged, he murders Tremayne, steals a ship, and flies toward the worlds of the former Sith Empire.

4,400 BBY

Freedon Nadd, a Dark Jedi bearing Sith magic, goes to Yavin 4, where he battles the Massassi and forces them to remember their heritage of service under Naga Sadow.

1,000 BBY

Jedi initiates begin using training lightsabers, low-powered variants of the real weapons, in their training exercises.

Most of the Sith are exterminated in the Battle of Ruusan.

Having escaped the extermination of the Sith on Ruusan, Darth Bane finds his way to the Dxun moon of Onderon, where he hopes to find ancient knowledge that will allow him to rebuild the Brotherhood of Darkness. It is there, in Freedon Nadd’s tomb, where he finds an ancient Sith holocron. Bane spends several days studying the holocron, and there formulates the Rule of Two, a rule which limits the possible number of Sith down to two - one master and one apprentice.

Darth Bane travels to Onderon, where he finds Zannah and makes her his apprentice.

In the wake of the Battle of Ruusan, Supreme Chancellor Tarsus Valorum initiates the Ruusan Reformations. This initiates a new era for the Republic, wherein the standing Republic Army is dismantled, power is transferred in many cases from the Chancellor to the Senate, and the Jedi Order becomes a branch of the Judicial Department and thus answerable to the Senate.

The Jedi initiate reformations of their own. Training must begin in early childhood, romantic and familial relationships are prohibited, and offworld Jedi councils are disbanded, centralizing Jedi leadership on Coruscant.

Six months after the Battle of Ruusan, the Republic pardons any non-Sith who had served in the Brotherhood of Darkness’ army.

With the new prohibitions against marriage, the Nabooan Jedi Lord Kayos dissolves the relationship with his wife Lady Zara. This move will lead to war between their two city-states, eventually bringing about the Time of Suffering.

990 BBY

His body weakening and Zannah as yet unwilling or unable to challenge him for his position, Darth Bane chooses to seek out the ancient holocron of Lord Andeddu in order to preserve his spirit in a new body, which will give him enough time for Zannah to make her move or allow him to train a new apprentice. Zannah discovers this and, believing Bane has abandoned the Rule of Two so that he can continue on indefinitely as the sole Sith Lord, leaves to continue the Sith Order on her own.

Zannah takes Hetton on as her apprentice.

990-980 BBY

To prepare herself for her inevitable confrontation with Darth Bane, Zannah masters Sith magic and begins experimenting with creating a lightsaber crystal capable of generating a blade that can cut through other lightsabers; her experiments will bear fruit with the blood-red penari crystal.

985 BBY

Darth Bane takes the assassin Huntress (the future Darth Cognus) on as his new apprentice.

980 BBY

Bane contacts Zannah, and the two with their apprentices meet up for a final confrontation on Ambria. In the resulting battle Hetton is killed and Zannah bests Bane when his lightsaber shorts out under hers and she uses her dark side powers against him. Bane unsuccessfully tries to transfer his spirit into her body, and is lost. Zannah then becomes Dark Lady of the Sith, taking the Huntress on as her new apprentice.

Zannah, having acquired several personality traits from Bane after his possession attempt, begins to call herself "Darth" Zannah. This will eventually lead to the tradition of using Darth as a Sith title until the time of Palpatine.

The bloodshine crystal - a much weaker form of the penari crystal - is created and becomes the standard lightsaber crystal used in Sith lightsabers.

Star Wars: Episode I - The Beginning (AKA DuracellEnergizer's Take On TPM)
Time

I've come to the end of this series of updates, folks. My script is currently unfinished/in the middle of a rewrite. It may be some time before I'm done, so don't except any significant updates for awhile; but who knows - I may get lucky =D

To make up for this snag, I'll be posting some "special features" - some behind-the-scenes kind of stuff. I'll start with a rough timeline I've adapted from the Wookieepedia "Timeline of galactic history" article, the Star Wars Timeline Gold, and my own imagination ;-)

EXT. ALDERAAN - ALDERA - SPACEPORT - DAY


The transport drops down from the sky, weaving in and out of incoming and outgoing traffic. The craft reaches the ground, touching down on the tarmac and powering down.

The hatch lowers, and out steps the Colonel, followed by the Princess and her bodyguards, the Jedi, and Tarpals and Vaness. Waiting for them is Bail’s father, the Viceroy of Alderaan.

The two Organa men embrace, greeting one another.


VICEROY ORGANA : It is good to see you, son. I received word of your mission and its outcome. I’m glad you made it out of there.

COL. ORGANA : It is good to see you again as well, Father. I’ll be returning to Nabu soon, though - with your blessing, hopefully.

VICEROY ORGANA : My blessing?

COL. ORGANA : The Senate refuses to send another armada to Nabu. I’ve promised the Princess of Nabu herself that I would have our fleet assist her. I need your approval to ready the ships.

VICEROY ORGANA : If I allowed you to do this Alderaan would be rendered defenceless. We would be at the mercy of our enemies.

COL. ORGANA : Please, Father ... I made this promise to her. She’s been through so much ...

VICEROY ORGANA : Let me see this girl.

COL. ORGANA : She’s right here. (to Amidala) Come, Amidala. I'd like you to meet my father, the Viceroy of the Royal House of Alderaan.


Amidala steps forward. She looks up into the elder Organa’s eyes, making contact.


AMIDALA : You will give your son those ships, to let him create this fleet. You’ll gladly give him your blessing.

VICEROY ORGANA : Oh, Princess, and how do you know this?

AMIDALA : Call it destiny, fate, the will of the gods. Whichever it is, it’s going to happen.

VICEROY ORGANA : (laughing) She’s strong-willed, Bail. There’s much spirit in her. (to Amidala) You’ll get those ships, my dear. There’s a matter of procedure, but I’m sure we can overcome it.

AMIDALA : Thank you, Your Majesty. You’ve made a friend of the House of Naberrie.

FATHER ORGANA : The House of Organa accepts your offer of friendship, Princess. (cont’d) Come now, Bail, lets get you and your guests away to the palace.


The group departs, leaving the standing transport behind and passing through the teeming numbers of people crawling over the spaceport.


EXT. NABU - LANDSCAPE - TWILIGHT


Viceroy Nute Gunray’s personal battleship cruises slowly over the ground, casting gale-force winds over the grass below. Several animals scurry, seeking shelter from the metallic behemoth.


INT. NABU - NUTE GUNRAY’S PERSONAL FLAGSHIP - NUTE GUNRAY’S PERSONAL CHAMBERS - TWILIGHT


Gunray stands before Maul’s projected image. His eyes are unfocused and his skin extremely pale.


NUTE GUNRAY : In a matter of days the landing platform will be complete, and we will be able to bring the command ship down and secure it into place. Our hold on Nabu will be complete, and you may then do whatever it is you wish with the people of this world.

MAUL : Good ... You are finally doing your job right, Viceroy.

NUTE GUNRAY : I only ask one thing in return ...

MAUL : You needn’t worry. You will receive your full payment.

NUTE GUNRAY : That’s not what I’m talking about.

MAUL : What then?

NUTE GUNRAY : Once Nabu is yours, we are finished. The Federation Neimoidia will have no further business with you or your Order.

MAUL : That’s where you’re wrong, Neimoidian. You sold your soul when you agreed to the plan - you created a pact that can never be broken. You are in our pocket forever.

NUTE GUNRAY : Whatever ... Just let us rest for a while.

MAUL : When this is over, you may rest for however long you wish.

NUTE GUNRAY : Many thanks ...

MAUL : Now, let us talk of preparations for my arrival.

NUTE GUNRAY: What?

MAUL : I will pay you a visit when construction of the command centre nears completion. I want the final stages of this conquest to go smoothly. I will be there personally to make sure it does.

NUTE GUNRAY : Of all the gods that must exist, no!

MAUL : You have a new god now. (cont’d) Farewell, Nute Gunray.


The holographic man dies away. Gunray collapses upon the derelict projector with a moan, and begins to sob.


INT. ALDERAAN - ALDERA - ROYAL PALACE - WAR ROOM - MORNING


The war room, a theatre converted for military purposes, has high walls and a massive stage. Several thousand Alderaanian soldiers take their places in their seats. With them are Organa and the Jedi. On the stage stands the General Noums.

The lights in the room go dark, and the schematics of three Neimoidian Federation droids - a standard battle droid, a destroyer droid, and a droid fighter - are projected on the stage screen. The images are enlarged, providing details on the inner workings of the machines.


GEN. NOUMS : Take a good look, gentlemen. The B1 battle droid, the droideka, and The Vulture-class droid starfighter. Armed with a simple blaster rifle, the B1 is a cheap model, and it shows in it’s flimsy design. It is a moderate threat at best individually, posing a real threat only in great numbers. The droideka and droid fighter, however, are both very formidable. (cont’d) The starfighter carries four blaster cannons, two energy torpedo launchers, with a compact body that can reach speeds of 1200 kilometres per hour in a planet’s atmosphere. The droideka can adopt a wheel configuration, allowing rapid movement. It carries twin blaster cannons, which can unleash a torrent of laserfire, and is equipped with a deflector shield generator capable of projecting a shield capable of deflecting weapons fire as powerful as a light artillery bolt. Each of these droids are different, with their own strengths and weaknesses - the B1 more so than the others, of course.


A series of laughter rings out throughout the chamber.


GEN. NOUMS : (cont’d) But these droids are all built and utilized by the Neimoidian Federation, and all are slaved to a central control computer. A central computer usually located onboard the command ship.


The image of the droids are replaced with an image of a pyramid-shaped starship.


GEN. NOUMS : This is the command ship. A pyramid-shaped starcraft twice the size of a Lucrehulk. The Federation droids are all controlled en masse from here. (cont’d) Now, when Neimoidian begin occupation of a captured world, they bring their command ships down onto the surface of that world to offer them better protection from an enemy force.


The holographic ship is shown descending to a planet’s surface, where it lands upon a pyramid-shaped landing platform.


GEN. NOUMS : Take out the command ship, you take out the droids. The majority of the Federation army falls to pieces right then and there, leaving only the larger capital ships to deal with. (cont’d) Unfortunately, when grounded on the surface the pyramid will be surrounded by a powerful shield. A conventional bombardment from space just won’t work. you’ll have to get up close and personal to take it out.

An image depicting the inner workings of a command ship is shown.


GEN. NOUMS : The pyramid is a massive battery, housing a reactor which constantly generates energy to power the personal shields, coordinate the droid armies, etc. This process creates large amounts of waste energy as a by-product. This excess energy has to be discarded in order to keep everything in running order, which it is. It is channelled through massive conduits, and ejected from the ship. (cont’d) Accessing the command ship’s computer, one can take control of the systems which control these conduits and seal them off.


An enlarged image of the reactor core is shown, with a large computer console situated atop a catwalk.


GEN. NOUMS : The Neimoidians design these pyramid ships so that their mainframes can only be accessed from a solitary console, a console installed within the guts of the reactor core itself. It is from this console where all commands are entered. (cont’d) Once the conduits are sealed off, the excess energy generated by the reactors will have nowhere to go. A chain reaction will begin, and then ...


The image of the entire command centre is restored. The image of the pyramid glows bright, then explodes in a shower of light. The projector then turns off, and the lights in the theatre return.


GEN. NOUMS : The Jedi Knights Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi have graciously offered to infiltrate the Federation command ship. They will fly a captured enemy craft and dock with the pyramid, then make their way to the core to complete the sabotage.

ALDERAANIAN SOLDIER : General Noums, is it true that the ships of the Neimoidian fleet are equipped with double-blind cloaking devices?

GEN. NOUMS : Ah, yes, the cloaking devices. Thank you for reminding me. (cont’d) It is true, the Federation seems to have figured out the Kaminoan cloaking technology and backward engineered it. You won’t have anything to worry about. All ships in the fleet will have Jedi on staff to help detect these invisible ships. Nothing can beat the senses of a Jedi. (cont’d) Now you know what you have to do. Keep your wits about you and don’t screw up. Luck be with you all.


The soldiers get up out of their seats, and begin to file out of the chamber.

The best way to dispose of a hated mohawk is to scalp the head that wears it with a rusty hatchet; make sure the hatchet is very dull, covered with nicks, if you wish to provide the utmost discomfort.

Then you bring a bucket of gasoline over to your victim, and then deposit the scalped mohawk into the bucket and set it ablaze; make certain the bucket is close enough to the victim so that he can breathe in the gas fumes and smoke.

And there you go; one ugly mohawk annihilated.
