"You will return the fleet to the outer rim tomorrow," enunciated Emperor Palpatine crisply, leaning into his cane and watching me from beneath the hem of his black mantle. "You will soon have the clues you need to close in on our quarry."
"You believe the new probe droids will be effective, then, my master?"
"I am not concerned with droids," he replied. "Rather, I have foreseen these events. The strings of the Force grow taut, and soon we shall play a tune upon them, Lord Vader. It will be a dirge for the rebellion that will initiate the second age of this New Order."
Man, that guy loves the sound of his own voice! Luckily no one can see me roll my eyes behind this masque.
UPDATE: Hey, look, Darth Vader's position on torture is the same as the Bush Administration's.
