in April of 2004, I posted my very first attempt at a photonovel on Rebelscum. While certainly far from the first photonovel in existence, this predated the later photonovel craze and even beat Chewie's first Rykrof Enloe chapter to the punch by nearly a year.
Unfortunately, it got exactly three meager replies, one of which was just nitpicking all of the "errors" in my story (such as - that kind of AT-AT didn't exist yet and Admiral Thrawn was only a captain at the time of my story - facts that, somewhat ironically, have recently been changed to make me retroactively correct.)
Due in part to the utter apathetic shrug that greeted my photonovel and the fact that I really didn't have in a good plan in place for realizing my ambitious concept, I never went back to this story.
But I found the pictures in an old CD the other day, so I thought I'd dust it off and trot it out for you good people.
Basically, the story was meant to dramatize how Mon Mothma escaped from Coruscant after the dissolution of the Senate, narrowly avoiding capture by the Empire.
As far as I'm concerned, "Rogue One" heavily implied (without stating it directly) that Mothma was still an active senator at the time of ANH, though "Rebels" tells us that she had already left the Senate and was a fugitive prior to that (which I think was, frankly, a goof by the Storygroup, but whatever...)
So, in my imagined timeline, she is still very much a senator and is caught off guard when the Empire closes ranks and begins arresting "problem" senators as the Emperor decides to do away with the Senate entirely.
Well, anyway....all that said, here is the first (and only) chapter of "Star Wars: Lockdown", a forgotten gem from 2004, back when my photo manipulation skills were at an absolute bare minimum!
So please enjoy this time capsule from a distant age!
