Star Wars Rebels (2014–2018): Season 4, Episode 3 - In the Name of the Rebellion: Part 1 - full transcript


We're coming up
on Yavin 4.

I wonder what this
rebel cell is like,

and how big it is
compared to Phoenix group.

According to Hera, it's more
well-equipped than we were.

The remnants of Phoenix group
are now a part of this cell.

No, Chop.

Hera said you're getting an
oil bath when we get there,

whether you like it
or not.

Welcome to Yavin 4.

Zeb! Whoa, easy there.

What, you haven't gotten
weak since I've been gone,

- have you, big guy?
- Where's Hera?

She's on a supply mission.

Come on, I'll show you around.

So many different
ships and people.

There are cells
gathered here

from every corner
of the galaxy.

And it's still not enough
against the Empire.

As long as we can help
Ryder and Lothal,

I'll take what I can get.

You're back!

What's going on?

Where's Hera?

Well, if you're looking
for Hera, there she is,

coming in hot with what's
left of her squadron.

Season 04 Episode 03
Title: "In the Name of the Rebellion (Part-1)"

Base One,
this is Phoenix Leader.

Stand by
for emergency landings.

Come on! Come on!
Move it!

Check your speed.
Angle forward deflectors.

Wedge, dump your fuel.
Got it, boss.

Don't worry.

She's got it.


No, my astromech
didn't make it.


Boy, I could have used you
on this mission, buddy.

are you all right?

I'm fine, Wedge.

I'm glad you all made it
down in one piece.

Sorry about the mission.
If we just could've...

This wasn't your fault.
Any of yours.

Our intel was bad.

If you hadn't handled
yourselves so courageously,

we would have
lost everybody.

Thanks, Captain.

Now get cleaned up.

I want a full assessment
of damage to the Y-wings

to see what's

I've seen
worse landings.

You're all here!

Sabine, you came back.

What about your family
on Mandalore?

They'll be fine.

Right now, my family here
needs me more.

Well, I'm glad
to have you.

And there's plenty enough
work to go around.

Well then,
let's get started.

A reunion.
How nice.

But as Commander Bridger

it's time to get to work.

Mon Mothma requests
your presence.

Captain, I commend
your bravery

in protecting
your fellow pilots.

I just want to know what
went wrong out there.

As do I.

Senator Organa may be able to
shed some light on that for us.

My sources in the Senate
confirm that the Empire

has established
a new communications relay

in the Jalindi system.

It greatly expands their
command and control

throughout the surrounding
sectors, and enabled them

to respond much more
quickly to your incursion.

I hate to admit it,
but it appears

Gerrera's rumors were true.

Hmm, how does Saw's
ragtag group

have better intel
than we do?

Because Gerrera has
absolutely no qualms

about how
he acquires it.

Well, if he
gets results...

We do not mistreat
our prisoners.

Now, the question is,

what course of action
do we take?

We can't allow this relay
to hamper our missions.

Perhaps there is
another way.

If we could somehow
tap into this relay,

we could use it to monitor
Imperial fleet movements

and adjust our own
operations to avoid them.

Can it be done?

My crew and I have done
plenty of jobs just like it.

Are you confident your ship can
get in and out undetected?

We don't call it the Ghost
for nothing.

You are authorized
to proceed.

That's it?

But what about

Ezra, now's
not the time.

If not now, when?

Huh? We promised
my people support.

Our attack failed, but
they're still waiting.

Ryder's counting on us.

Lieutenant Commander Bridger,
let's you and I talk

for a moment.

I am sympathetic to the
plight of your people, Ezra.

Like Lothal, my home planet
of Chandrila is suffering

at the hands of the Empire.

But if we help
these two worlds,

what of Onderon, or
Ryloth, or Montross?

What of the thousands

of other worlds
who need us?

Where do we start?

Yeah, but we already
told Ryder

we would send help.

If Thrawn hadn't
found our base,

we would've
launched an attack.

But, instead, when we
amassed our forces,

we were routed
by Thrawn's starfleet

and taught
a valuable lesson,

that we are not ready
for open war.

Yeah? Well, some people say
it's already begun.

Indeed they do.

This is a time
of difficult choices,

impossible ones.

I understand.

Thank you, Senator.

You're upset.

What is it?

I just feel
so helpless.

I thought being here would get
me closer to helping Lothal.

But now that I am, it seems
farther away than ever.


Find your center.

Something else?

When we were on Geonosis
with Saw,

we didn't always agree
with how he did things,

but it seems like
he's the only one

who doesn't care about
all the politics.

He just fights.

Ezra, it's not whether
or not we fight, it's...

It's how we choose to fight that matters.
I know, Kanan.

Maybe we're choosing
the wrong way.

Members of the Alliance
to restore the Republic...

Your losses today stemmed

from your leaders' cowardice,
their unwillingness

to take decisive action
against the Empire.

All across the galaxy,
your people suffer

while the leaders of this...

"Rebellion" refuse to act.

Should I shut
it down?

No. I want to
speak to him.

Madam Senator,
I'm honored.

What is your
business here?

You ignored my warning
about the Jalindi relay

and paid the price.

Now you have confirmation, yet
still you refuse to destroy it.

So long as our allies
in the Senate have hope

of a peaceful resolution to this
conflict, I will not risk...

If you continue to allow
this war to be fought

on the Empire's terms,
not yours,

you are going to lose.

I will not be lectured
on military strategy

by a man who has
proven himself a criminal.

The Empire considers
both of us criminals.

At least
I act like one.

You target civilians,
kill those who surrender,

break every rule
of engagement!

If we degrade ourselves
to the Empire's level,

what will we become?

There she is!

That's the leader
the Rebellion needs!

Where is that fire,
that passion,

when your people
need it most?

I hope, Senator,
after you've lost,

and the Empire reigns
over the galaxy unopposed,

you will find some comfort
in the knowledge

that you fought
according to the rules.

That's enough.

What are you afraid of,

The truth?

Return to your duties.

The Imperial relay
is situated

in a field of stone
towers on Jalindi.

The Ghost will approach
at a high altitude

and Ezra, Sabine, and Chopper
will rocket-jump down

onto the dish to install
the repeater spike.

When you're done,
we'll swoop back in

below the outpost's sensors
to extract you.

Any questions?

Spiking it won't do anything
to hurt the Empire.

It'll just make it a little easier
for us to sneak around them.

Yeah, that's really more a
comment than a question, Ezra,

but you do
have a point.

You're not seeing
the bigger picture.

If we destroy the relay,

the Empire will just build
another one.

This way, we can use it to
stay one step ahead of them.

Yeah, but...

It's not up for discussion,
and we have our orders.

You all right?

Never better.

I don't need to see you to
know something's wrong.

Ezra's right.

This won't hurt
the Empire.

And after what they did
to my squadron,

that's all I want.

To hurt them the way
they keep hurting us.

Go straight at them and blow
that relay right off the map!

That's Gerrera talking,
not you.

You're doing
the right thing.

I'm not even sure I know what
the right thing is anymore.

Coming up on Jalindi.

Better scramble
the Ghost's signature

so they won't
detect us.

I know I don't need
a jetpack.

I happen to like
wearing one.

Just don't hit your
jets too early

or their sensors
will pick us up.

What if we hit 'em
too late?

Hey, I like abstract art. I
just don't want to become it.

Passing 2,000 meters!

I don't like this.
They're dropping too fast.

Relax, Zeb. They have
to keep their speed up

until the last minute
so they're not detected.

1,200 meters coming
up on us real fast!

500 meters.

Get ready.


We're still too fast!

We're gonna crash!

Grab on to something!

I got you!

Well, that could have
been worse.


You okay, pal?

He's complaining.
He must be fine.

Spectre-5 to Ghost.

We made it onto the dish
in one piece.

Copy that. Now get to
work on that spike.

We're on the clock here.

Picking up an incoming light cruiser.
Headed for the relay.

Guys, you've got
an Imperial ship

headed in your direction.

What was that you said
about how this could be worse?

If they see you,
this mission's blown.

They didn't see us.

At least I don't think
they did.

We're good.

Let's just do this
fast and get out of here.

give me a hand.

Okay, isolate the secondary
comm circuit.

Yep. There, there.
Hold it right there.

Installing the spike.

Got it!
We're patched in.

outpost, this is Marauder

requesting clearance to dock.

What's going on?

We must have
patched into

the main comm circuit
by mistake.

We're intercepting all
incoming transmissions.

Jalindi outpost,
your signal is garbled.

Please repeat.

Chopper, run a bypass,
connect that ship

to the outpost
commander now!

Chopper, give me comm control.
I've got an idea.

We don't have time. If someone
doesn't respond to them,

they're gonna know
something's wrong.

Uh, Marauder,

this is Jalindi

You weren't scheduled to arrive
until the next rotation.

You're creating a lot
of difficulties for us.

Maybe come back tomorrow?

What difficulties?
Who is this?

This is Commander
Brom Titus.

Is this some kind of a joke?

I am Commander
Brom Titus,

and I demand an
explanation immediately.

Ugh, this
is so typical of our luck.

The Empire's realigning
the dish!

switch it back!

What is that?

Whoa! Whoa!

It's him!
That boy!

Get me the real commander
of that outpost, now!

we've been spotted!

We're gonna need
a pickup, fast!

Copy that.
On our way.



I take it we're changing
the plan?

Ezra, do you want
to salvage something

from this mission or not?

Let's blow this thing.

Way to go,
Brom Titus!

I didn't know!

Hera, we've got
stormtroopers over here.

We need that pickup now!

Hold on!
We're almost there!

You plant the detonators!
I'll hold them off!

That's holding them off?

level out the dish!

Sir, a small ship is
approaching the relay

at high speed.

Launch our new
fighters to intercept

and ready
the gunners.

Ezra, come on!

We've got two TIE defenders
coming in fast!

Zeb, I need you
in the turret.

Spectre-5 and 6,
I gotta break off.

Hold tight.
Be right back.

Chopper, tilt the dish!

Oh! Whoa!

These aren't the normal TIEs.

These are the nasty ones.

Just concentrate your fire.

Their shields
can't last forever.

Yeah? Well,
tell that to them.

They may have
the better fighters,

but we've still got
the better pilot.

Would you like a chance
to prove that?

Try me.

Go down into the fog.

How's she gonna see
in the fog?

She won't have to.
I will.

Boy, I must
really trust you.

I know you do.

Hera, on my mark, go left,
then make a quick right.


Level out.

Turn to point three.

Climb to point five now.

One down.

Whatever you're doing,
keep it up.

Sir, another ship just came
out of hyperspace.

It's moving to
attack position.

Who is that?

I don't know, but they're
my new favorites.

are down.

We still have weapons.

Bring us about.

I want that ship.

Whoo! Got 'em.
We're clear.

Let's pick up the kids.

You rebels need a ride?


Heads up.

I wouldn't think too long.

Those charges are on
a real short fuse.

Chopper, we're leaving.
Let's go.

Run for it!

We're out.
Go! Go! Go!

Pursuit course.
After them.

Now that's how you
deal with the Empire.

Did they just...
Ezra! Sabine!

Are you there?
Talk to me.

Hera, we're okay.

Relax, Captain Syndulla.
I've got them.


Hold your position.

I'm coming alongside
to get my people.

Sorry, Captain.
No time.

Don't worry. Your kids
will be fine with me.

Besides, they might
enjoy fighting

with a real army
for a change.

Gerrera, return them
to me at once.

Unless you two have any
objections, we're going to leave.

What choice do we have?

Get us out of here.

Where they going?

I'm not worried about
where they're going.

I'm worried about who
they're going with.
