Admiral Konstantine : I'm certain Governor Pryce is overestimating how organized the Resistance is. While it's true there are pockets of rebellion, there has never been any evidence of a larger scale, galaxy-wide operation.
Grand Admiral Thrawn : And I would like to keep it that way, Admiral Konstantine.
Grand Moff Tarkin : Grand Admiral Thrawn
Admiral Konstantine : *Grand* Admiral?
Grand Admiral Thrawn : The Emperor recently promoted me after my victory at Batonn.
Agent Kallus : Civilian causalities outnumbered the insurgents at the time.
Governor Arihnda Pryce : Acceptable margins, Agent Kallus, for there are no longer any rebels in that sector.
Grand Moff Tarkin : Well, Thrawn. What do you think of Governor Pryce's theory about the rebels in the Lothal sector.
Grand Admiral Thrawn : [pulls up Hondo's arrest file] This is a pirate our rebels rescued from Naraka prison; Hondo Ohnaka. Within the last hour the Phoenix Squadron destroyed Mining Guild ships using the Sereeda hyperspace waypoint. Taken separately, they may seem unrelated. But Ohnaka's cellmate was a laborer at our starfighter reclamation plant in the Yarma system. One jump-point away from the Sereeda attack.
Governor Arihnda Pryce : Grand Admiral Thrawn believes the rebels intend to raid the plant, and steal fighters for their fleet.
Grand Admiral Thrawn : Every ship they add to their arsenal increases a threat to our own armada and the Emperor's plans.
Grand Moff Tarkin : I trust you have a solution?
Grand Admiral Thrawn : I will start my operations here, and pull the rebels apart piece by piece. They'll be the architects of their own destruction.
