- EXT. NABOO - SHALLOW LAKE - TWILIGHT
Three landing craft slowly descend through the cloud cover of the
perpetually gray twilight side of the planet. One by one, the Federation
warships land in the eerie swamp.

not the film.
OBI-WAN's head emerges from the mud of a shallow lake. Far in
the background, the activities of the invasion force can be seen
in the mist. OBI-WAN takes several deep breaths, then disappears
again under the muddy swamp. Troop Transports (MTT's) emerge
from the landing craft.

- EXT. NABOO SWAMP - TWILIGHT
QUI-GON runs through the strange landscape, glancing back to see
the monstrous troop transports emerging from the mist. Animals begin
to run past him in a panic.
An odd, frog-like Gungan, JAR JAR BINKS, squats holding a clam he
has retrieved from the murky swamp. The shell pops open. JAR JAR's
great tongue snaps out and grabs the clam, swallowing it in one
JAR JAR looks up and sees QUI-GON and the other creatures running
like the wind toward him. One of the huge MTT's bears down on the
JEDI like a charging locomotive. JAR JAR stands transfixed, still
holding the clam shell in one hand.
The two troops fire laser bolts at OBI-WAN. QUI-GON deflects the
bolts back, and the STAPS blow up. One-two. OBI-WAN is exhausted
and tries to catch his breath.
Sorry, Master, the water fried my weapon.
OBI-WAN pulls out his burnt laser sword handle. QUI-GON inspects
it, as JAR JAR pulls himself out of the mud.
You forgot to turn your power off again, didn't you?
OBI-WAN nods sheepishly.
It won't take long to recharge, but this is a lesson I hope you've
learned, my young Padawan.
Yousa sav-ed my again, hey?
