Full Transcript

A. SOLO INTRO

QUINN: My lord, I regret that our paths must diverge. Out of respect, I wanted to be here to witness your fate.

(DIALOGUE 1A)

   1. (What do you mean?) What fate, Quinn? What are you talking about? --go to C--
   2. (This sounds bad.) I've got a bad feeling about this.
   QUINN: Your senses have always been keen. --go to C--
   3 non-romance. (You're always so dramatic.) That's what I like about you, Quinn - your flair for the theatrical.
   QUINN: It's true. I have set this stage, my lord. --go to C--
   3a romance. (Are you breaking up with me?) Have you found someone else? If you say 'it's not me, it's you,' I won't be responsible for my actions.
   QUINN: It's not me or you. It's Darth Baras. I owe him more than you could imagine. --go to C--


B. INTRO WITH COMPANIONS

QUINN: My lord, I could not leave you to this fate without showing the respect of being here to witness it.

(DIALOGUE 1B)

   1. (What do you mean?) What fate, Quinn? What are you talking about? --go to C--
   2. (What are you doing here?) Get back to the ship, captain. I didn't say you could disembark.
   QUINN: I regret that I have been disobeying many of your orders of late, my lord. --go to C--
   3 non-romance. (You're always welcome.) [incomplete] --go to C--
   3a romance. ([Flirt] Did you get lonely?) You just can’t stand to be away from me, can you, dear?
   QUINN: I have enjoyed your company and companionship, my lord. That’s why this is so hard. --go to C--


C. QUINN: It pains me, but this entire scenario is a ruse. There's no martial law and no special signal emitter. Baras is my true master. He had me lure you here to have you killed.

(DIALOGUE 2)

   1 non-romance. (How could you?) This is the worst betrayal possible.
   QUINN: I act today with a heavy heart. Baras has always been the anchor of my career and, in my opinion, of the Empire. --go to D--
   1a romance. (Our romance dies in flames.) And here I thought you loved me. --go to D--
   2 non-romance. (Don't be rash.) Think this through, Quinn, before it goes too far.
   QUINN: You know me. I never act without consideration. Baras saved my career, and he'll save the Empire. --go to D--
   2a romance, may trigger on any female Warrior. (Don't I mean anything to you?) I thought our relationship was real. I thought we cared about each other. --go to D--
   3 non-romance. (Then you deserve death.) If you are allied with that fool, you will receive no mercy from me.
   QUINN: I arrived at this moment after much deliberation. Baras has always been the anchor of my career and, in my opinion, of the Empire. --go to D--
   3a romance. (I've fought for you!) After all we've been through together? I even helped you take out Moff Broysc.
   QUINN: You've helped me immensely. I act today with a heavy heart. But without Baras, I'd have no career. --go to D--


D. QUINN: I didn't want to choose between the two of you. But he's forced my hand, and I must side with him. --go to E, F, G, H, I, or J depending on your active companion--

E. SOLO

QUINN: Once you're gone, your crew will either join Baras with me or be killed. --go to L--

F. VETTE

VETTE: Wow, Captain Boredom makes a wake-up call. Did not see this coming.

(DIALOGUE 3A)

   1. (Reserve the chatter.) Keep quiet, Vette, and ready yourself for the fight.
   2. (Nor I.) He fooled us both, all this time. (+15 affection)
   QUINN: It hasn't been easy keeping the truth hidden.
   3. (Quinn's just confused.) Don't worry, he'll realize he's making a big mistake.


QUINN: Vette, ever since my lord removed your shock collar, you have been an insufferable pain.

VETTE: You know what? I say we kill this Imperial punk.

QUINN: Charming to the last. No more time to waste. It's my extreme pleasure to take you out of the equation. --go to K--


G. DS JAESA

DS JAESA: This kind of intrigue makes my spine tingle. I'd love to kill a traitor.

QUINN: Jaesa, you have no idea how long I've held my breath hoping you wouldn't use your power on me. Baras specifically expressed that I should extend his welcoming hand to you. Join us. (Note: 'Join us' may be the sexiest thing that voice has ever expressed. Go figure.)

DS JAESA: Are you kidding me? I may sense nothing but confidence in you, but...haha.

QUINN: Your powers will be a great benefit when Baras has turned you to him, Jaesa. For now, I can't have you disrupting my calculations. --Go to K--


H. LS JAESA

[incomplete; go to K]


I. PIERCE

PIERCE: Knew there was a reason I wanted to put a gun to his head the minute I met him.

(DIALOGUE 3B)

   1. (Your wish is coming true.) You’re about to get your chance. (+109)
   2. (Steady, Lieutenant.) Let’s hear the man out, but be ready. (-2)
   3. (Quinn is not the enemy.) The captain will realize he’s making an incredible mistake.


QUINN: Pierce, Baras asked me if you’d be a valuable asset. I told him you were physically capable, but not worth the trouble. Sorry. PIERCE: Ha. You think I’d join you and some cowardly puppeteer? You guys are going nowhere. QUINN: Charming to the last. No more time to waste. It’s my extreme pleasure to take you out of the equation. --go to K--

J. BROONMARK

BROONMARK: More betrayal! We must cleanse the clan!

(DIALOGUE 3C)

   1. (Ready yourself.) Sharpen your claws, Broonmark. You're about to get them bloody. (+149)
   2. (Patience.) Hold still, Broonmark. We won't attack hastily. (-111)
   3. (A never-ending demand.) Yes, it seems there is always more cleansing to be done.


QUINN: Broonmark, Darth Baras has no quarrel with you. Join me, and he will welcome you to the fold.

BROONMARK: You insult us. We never betray. Our pledge is complete. Our pledge is always.

QUINN: 'Always' is about to become a very short amount of time. Sorry, Broonmark, but I can't have you disrupting my calculations. --go to K--


K. Quinn incapacitates the companion.

QUINN: Baras and I have been planning this for some time. You'll have to face this fight alone, my lord. –go to L--

L. (DIALOGUE 4)

   1. (Baras is only out for himself.) Your master will run the Empire right into the ground.
   QUINN: Baras has always been one step ahead of every enemy. He will lead us to victory. --go to M--
   2. (Baras defies the Emperor.) You know who I'm working for now, Captain. If you stand with Baras, you stand against the Emperor himself.
   QUINN: The Emperor is an absentee landlord. Baras is doing what any real patriot would do. --go to M--
   3. (You're a fool, Quinn.) I really thought you were smarter than this.
   QUINN: I'll show you how smart I am. --go to M--


M. QUINN: After all this time observing you in battle, I have exhaustively noted your strengths and weaknesses. These war droids have been programmed specifically to combat you. I calculate a near zero percent chance of their failure. (DIALOGUE 5)

   1. (Stats are unreliable.) Your confidence in the odds is your biggest weakness.
   QUINN: If anything, I'm underestimating my droids' chances. You'll find they are virtually immune to you. --go to N--
   2. (Shut up. [Attack]) You always did talk too much. (I LOVE how the male Warrior says this) --go to N--
   3. (Then I'm in trouble.) [incomplete] --go to N--


N. QUINN: I'm sorry it's come to this, my lord.

(combat starts)


O. POST FIGHT

QUINN: I should have known. I thought I'd programmed the perfect killing machine for you. I was painstakingly precise.

(DIALOGUE 6)

   1. (I cannot be killed.) After all our time together, have you not realized that I am unbeatable? (+15 if Vette is present)
   QUINN: I am at a loss. --go to P--
   2. (You're a failure.) This proves you are inept. I’m better off without someone who makes such a mistake. (+40 if Pierce is present)
   QUINN: Perhaps you’re right. --go to P--
   3. (Don't be so hard on yourself.) Your droids pushed me. It was a valiant attempt.
   QUINN: That's little consolation. --go to P--


P. QUINN: I have betrayed you. Conspired with your most hated enemy. I know it is meaningless to express my deep regret. I don't expect your mercy.

(DIALOGUE 7)

   1. (You'll live...barely. [Choke him]) It's useless to defy me. (+100 DS points, deeply satisfying cutscene) I will keep you alive. And we will see if you earn my trust again.
   QUINN: My lord, I'm...this is unexpected. Darth Baras would never forgive such a failure. --go to Q--
   2. (You're useful to me.) I will keep you alive. And we will see if you earn my trust again. (No cutscene action)
   QUINN: My lord, I'm...this is unexpected. Darth Baras would never forgive such a failure. --go to Q--
   3. (I can be merciful.) I understand your confusion. Baras can be very persuasive. I forgive you, Quinn. (+150 LS points)
   QUINN: My lord, I am deeply grateful. Darth Baras would never afford the same forgiveness.
   VETTE, if present: Quinn, your luck never seems to run out. --go to Q--


Q. QUINN: If you will permit me to stay in your charge, my dedication to you will never come into question again. (DIALOGUE 8)

   1 non-romance. (We'll see.) I'll be keeping an eye on you just the same.
   QUINN: Of course, my lord. --go to R--
   1a romance. (We'll see.) Trust is difficult to rebuild, Quinn. But I'm willing to try.
   QUINN: I'll understand if things are different for a while. --go to R--
   2 non-romance. (I know.) The slate is clean, Quinn. --go to R--
   2a romance. (We are breaking up.) You can rejoin the crew, but you are no longer welcome in my quarters.
   QUINN: My actions have cost me dearly, then. --go to R--
   3 non-romance. (Be sure that is the case.) I will not hesitate to destroy you the next time.
   QUINN: There will be no next time, I swear. --go to R--
   3a romance. ([Flirt] All is forgiven.) You'll just have to make this up to me in private, Captain.
   QUINN: That can be arranged, my lord. --go to R--


R. QUINN: This interruption has delayed you enough. I'm eager to return to the ship and put this behind us.

WARRIOR: The ship is through there. Prepare for departure. I'll join you shortly.

VETTE, if present: Whatever you say.

BROONMARK, if present: We comply.

PIERCE, if present: Let's go, Quinn.

DS JAESA, if present: You heard the master, Quinn.

LS JAESA, if present: [incomplete]

QUINN: Of course, my lord. One thing, my lord - do you plan on telling the others what happened?

(DIALOGUE 9)

   1. (You'd be undermined.) No one else must know. It would compromise your ability to lead. Am I understood?
   BROONMARK, if present: You are our leader. --go to S--
   PIERCE, if present: Noted. --go to S--
   VETTE, DS JAESA, LS JAESA: [incomplete] --go to S--
   2. (They will be told sometime.) When it's appropriate, I will inform them. --go to S--
   3. (Your secret's safe with me(us if companion is present).) Don't worry. This will just be between the two(three) of us. Understood?
   VETTE, if present: I know Basic. --skip S; end of scene--
   DS JAESA, LS JAESA, PIERCE, BROONMARK: [incomplete]


S. QUINN: I appreciate it, my lord. I will see you back at the ship. [end of scene]
