[星球第二部第五章4]Other snowspeeders passed Wedge, racing in the opposite direction. He steered his craft on a direct course toward another walking death machine. As he approached the monster, Wedge shouted to his gunner, Activate harpoon.! The gunner pressed the firing switch as his pilot daringly maneuvered their craft through the walker's legs. Immediately the harpoon whooshed from the rear of the speeder, a l...+阅读


Artoo-Detoo stood just outside the entrance to the secret Rebel ice hangar, dusted with a layer of snow that had settled over his plug-shaped body. His inner timing mechanisms knew he had waited here a long time and his optical sensor told him that the sky was dark.
  But the R2 unit was concerned only with his built-in probe-sensors that were still sending signals across the ice fields. His long and earnest sensor-search for the missing Luke Skywalker and Han Solo had not turned up a thing.
  The stout droid began beeping nervously when Threepio approached him, plodding stiffly through the snow.
  "Artoo," the gold-colored robot inclined the upper half of his form at the hip joints, "there’s nothing more you can do. You must e inside." Threepio straightened to his full height again, simulating a human shiver as the night winds howled past his gleaming hull. "Artoo, my joints are freezing up. Will you hurry…please?…" But before he could finish his own sentence, Threepio was hurrying back toward the hangar entrance.
  Hoth’s sky was then entirely black with night, and Princess Leia ana stood inside the Rebel base entrance, maintaining a worried vigil. She shivered in the night wind as she tried to see into the Hoth darkness. Waiting near a deeply concerned Major Derlin, her mind was somewhere out on the ice fields.
  The giant Wookiee sat nearby, his maned head lifting quickly from his hairy hands as the two droids Threepio and Artoo reentered the hangar.
  Threepio was humanly distraught. "Artoo has not been able to pick up any signals," he reported, fretting, "although he feels his range is probably too limited to cause us to give up hope." Still, very little confidence could be detected in Threepio’s artificial voice.
  Leia ge the taller droid a nod of acknowledgment, but did not speak. Her thoughts were occupied with the pair of missing heroes. Most disturbing to her was that she found her mind focused on one of the two: a dark-haired Corellian w
hose words were not always to be taken literally.
  As the princess kept watch, Major Derlin turned to acknowledge a Rebel lieutenant reporting in. "All patrols are now in except Solo and Skywalker, sir." The major looked over at Princess Leia. "Your Highness," he said, his voice weighty with regret, "nothing more can be done tonight. The temperature is dropping fast. The shield doors must be closed. I’m sorry." Derlin waited a moment, then addressed the lieutenant. "Close the doors." The Rebel officer turned to carry out Derlin’s order and immediately the chamber of ice seemed to drop even more in temperature as the mournful Wookiee howled his grief.
  "The speeders should be ready in the morning," the major said to Leia.
  "They’ll make the search easier." Not really expecting an affirmative reply, Leia asked, "Is there any chance of their surviving until the morning?" "Slim," Major Derlin answered with grim honesty. "But yes, there’s a chance." In response to the major’s words, Artoo began to operate the miniature puters inside his barrel-like metal body, taking only moments to juggle numerous sets of mathematical putations, and climaxing his figurings with a series of triumphant beeps.
  "Ma’am," Threepio interpreted, "Artoo says the chances against survival are seven hundred twenty-five to one." Then, tilting toward the shorter robot, the protocol droid grumbled, "Actually, I don’t think we needed to know that." No one responded to Threepio’s translation. For several prolonged moments there was a solemn silence, broken only by the echoing clang of metal slamming against metal: the huge doors of the Rebel base were closed for the night. It was as if some heartless deity had officially severed the assembled group from the two men out on the ice plains and had, with a metallic bang, announced their deaths.
  Chewbacca led out another suffering howl.
  And a silent prayer, often spoken on an erstwhile world called Alderaan, crept into Leia’s thoughts.

星球第二部第六章2Looking out across the white battlefield, the Rebel officer watched the remaining snowspeeders whisking through the air and the last of the Imperial vehicles as they passed the wreckage of the exploded walker.

星球第二部第六章1The Rebel mand center, its walls and ceiling still shaking and cracking under the force of the battle on the surface, was attempting to operate amid the destruction.Pipes, torn apart by the blasting, belched sprays of scalding stem.

Knowing better than to delay, Captain Piett stepped forward instantly...

星球第二部第二章2The roars of another Wampa Ice Creature finally awakened the battered young Rebel mander. Luke’s head was spinning, aching, perhaps exploding for all he could tell.
