501st Journal -- Kashyyyk: "A Line in the Sand"EditWhen we arrived on Kashyyyk, things were just as bad as we'd feared. The droids had us outgunned, outmaneuvered and outmanned by a five-to-one margin. What none of us had counted on was the Wookiees. We'd all heard the stories, of course, but we'd never fought next to them, never seen them rip apart a droid with their bare hands. They were magnificent. Even so it was still a suicide mission. At least it was, until Master Yoda arrived. Then it became a battle -- a "winnable" battle.
From your commanding officer:
1.) "This is it, men. We have to hold this beach-head until reinforcements arrive. No retreats, no excuses."
2.) "Fall back behind the sea wall. We must protect the Wookiee base."
3.) "We must defend the oil refinery at all costs. If we don't, this whole place is going to blow."
4.) "Way to hold 'em back, men. Now let's push forward and send them packing."
4A.) YODA: "Proud I am, to stand with Wookiees in their time of need."
5.) "Good work, troops. Kashyyyk lives to fight another day."
With the timely arrival of Master Yoda, the 501st was able to hold the line against the CIS on Kashyyyk. We left as heroes. Years later, we'd return ... as "conquerors".
