    Dialog transcript
    Darth Vader
    You summoned me, my Master?
    Palpatine
    Some time ago I entrusted to you the task of eliminating the remaining Jedi. Of breaking the final ties with the Old Republic.
    Darth Vader
    Yes, Master, only a few remain, and those are in hiding.
    Palpatine
    One has been found.
    Darth Vader
    How, Master? I have eliminated many, but my searches have yielded no more.
    Palpatine
    Your, searches, yes. However, the pawns at my disposal are numerous. There are others who serve my needs.
    Darth Vader
    Mara Jade.
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    Darth Vader.
    Palpatine
    Yes. I believe you know one another. Mara Jade can be resourceful in ways you are not, Lord Vader. Her methods are somewhat more... delicate... than yours.
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    I encountered a man who was trying to escape Imperial custody on Kuat. He gave me information he'd come by from a Sacorrian smuggler. A Jedi hides on the fifth planet in the Cophrigin system on the Outer Rim. The name he whispered in my ear... was the Dark Woman.
    Darth Vader
    Finally she is discovered. I must be the one to eliminate her, Master.
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    As Emperor's Hand, the job should be mine, Vader.
    Darth Vader
    Your meager Jedi training is not enough to assure your access against the Dark Woman. Only the power of the dark side will destroy her.
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    I've located her...
    Palpatine
    Enough... the decision is mine. I will not have these rebels upstarts using the Jedi as a rallying symbol. They must be hunted to extinction. You will do this task for me, Lord Vader.
    Mara Jade Skywalker
    As you wish, Master.
    Darth Vader
    I will not fail you, my Master.
    Palpatine
    I know you will not fail me. You do know something of the destruction of a Jedi.
