Something This Way Comes

Vardis Kree, Personal Log.
I am sure that this is an exercise in futility, but I need to tell someone, so I am recording this message.
Here I am sitting in the cockpit of a captured vessel that is being kept in a hidden Imperial research lab and trying not to let anyone get the information the Imperials so badly want. I must not allow it to fall into their hands. I don’t know why, but I do know that much. Someone took a lot of care to hide it in the first place, and I will do whatever I can to keep it safe.
Right now I am getting that annoying tingling feeling. It tells me something big is about to happen and I have no way to get away from whatever it is. I almost feel sorry for the Stormtrooper who is standing guard. Why I would feel anything but contempt for him is beyond me, but there it is. Somehow I think I may not see him for much longer. I really shouldn't care, but, the thought of his life, any life, being ended .... It just makes me feel sad for him.
I can only sit here and ponder the outcome. I know something is coming. I have no rhyme or reason for this feeling, but I have come to trust it over the years. I have never felt it this strongly before, which makes me wonder what will become of me. In the past it has served me well to listen, but now I have no choice but to stay where I am. Even this ship and the little droid have failed to ease this feeling when I touch them. My anchor, so to speak, has come free and I feel …. Alone but not. I know that makes no sense. But it is what it is.
I do not know just what will happen, or when.
Just that it WILL.
