Opening crawlEdit

As the story is split into two parts, there are also 2 opening crawls.

Dark Forces II
REBEL AGENT
As the fight for galactic freedom rages on,
the past and the present collide. 
In the present, the Emperor has been destroyed,
and the weakened Empire has shrunk to a fraction
of it's former size, while the Rebel Alliance
continues to grow. For a young mercenary named
Kyle Katarn, it has been five years since he'd
betrayed the Empire. Five years since he 
abandoned his life as an Imperial officer and 
delivered the Death Star Plans to the Rebels. 
Five years since the death of his father, 
Morgan Katarn. But Kyle cannot escape the memory 
of the past. Five years ago he swore to avenge 
his father's death. But for all that time, 
his oath has gone unfulfilled. As he continues 
to search for the unknown Imperial murderers, 
Kyle under the watchful eyes of his companion Jan Ors has 
become a Rebel agent. But like Kyle himself, 
the Alliance cannot forget Katarn's Imperial past. 
And the Alliance views him with suspicion. 
So Kyle Katarn and the Rebel Alliance hurdle 
together toward an unknown future. But as so-often 
happens, the future will be determined by the past. 
For his own sake, and for the sake of the Alliance 
Kyle must unlock the secret to an ancient prophecy, 
and uncover the heroic deeds of his father that 
took places back in the early days of the Rebellion.…
Dark Forces II
REBEL AGENT
It has been five years since the destruction of 
the first Death Star and months since the defeat 
of the Empire at the Battle of Endor. Since the 
Emperor's fall the fledgling Alliance has 
struggled to drive the Empire further and further 
back from the worlds it's conquered. But now,
 a new threat has emerged. The Dark Jedi known as 
Jerec has uncovered an ancient prophecy and a 
source of unbelievable power. Somewhere among 
the stars, lies an uncharted planet and a 
mysterious place called the Valley of the Jedi. 
Only the murdered Rebel leader Morgan Katarn 
knew its whereabouts. Recording the secret on a 
datadisk for his son Kyle. Unfortunately for the 
young Rebel, a scheming droid called 8t88 
obtained the disk. The droid was able to decipher 
some of its information and deliver it to Jerec 
just before Kyle caught up with it. Tracking the 
droid to Nar Shaddaa, Kyle recovered the disc but 
was wounded in the ensuing battle. Recovering 
from his wounds, Kyle receives a vision from the 
murdered Jedi Master Rahn. Warning him of the task 
he must complete…
