This Imperial officer, Crix Madine, wishes to defect to the Alliance. He has supplied us with information on the development of a new weapon... A new type of stormtrooper: the Dark Trooper.

A new type of stormtrooper that can take out a Rebel base that quickly? I should have kept working for the Empire.
The German version has many references to violence removed in dialog:
- In the intro and the briefing for the first mission, Kyle's blaster pistol is referred to as a stunning pistol. Because of that detail, Mon Mothma has been given extra lines of dialog before the first mission, mentioning that the guards needed to be stunned to avoid casualties.
- In the briefing for the second mission, Jan says "I'm relieved" instead of "I'm impressed" and "Good luck, Kyle" instead of "Good hunting, Kyle".
- Before the sixth mission, Jan urges Kyle to stay alive. In the censored version, she says that he should avoid being detected.
