Create a pilot from the main game menu. Backspace over the default name and call it "Gary Martinez". Select it as if you wanted to play, and you'll see the blooper. In this scene, the actor Gary Martinez is playing a scene opposite Darth Vader. Darth is supposed to cut off Gary's character, Admiral Sarn, at mid-sentence. Darth's voice, however, isn't done by the same actor who wears the costume, so no one is there to cut Gary off. So at the point where Admiral Sarn runs out of dialogue, Gary simply decides to improvise.
Create a pilot from the main game menu. Backspace over the default name and call it "Jamison Jones". Select it as if you wanted to play, and you'll see the blooper. In this scene, the actor Jamison Jones (Rookie One) and Carl Magruder (Reggs) are supposed to be listening to Admiral Ackbar giving a speech. Off screen, the Project Leader Vince Lee is sitting on top of a ladder reading Ackbar's lines. This is the third take, and Lee has decided to get a bit silly; reading the lines with a really bad Ackbar accent. The actors try to keep their composure, but Jones is the first to crack up, with Magruder quick to follow.
Create a pilot from the main game menu. Backspace over the default name and call it "Julie Eccles". Select it as if you wanted to play, and you'll see the outtake. In this scene, the actors Julie Eccles (Ru Murleen) and Jamison Jones (Rookie One) are playing Rebels disguised as Imperial Stormtroopers. The original Stormtrooper costumes, however are cumbersome and clumsy, however, and the actors can't see through the notorious Coke-bottle-bottom lens pieces. Eccles has more problems, as the helmet keeps slipping down around her demure head.
Wile E. Stormtrooper
Play or jump (using Yoda Power Mode, above) to the third encounter of Chapter 11, The Star Destroyer. While there are still stormtroopers left, shoot out the three support pylons on the bridge above. The video sequence will play showing one trooper getting crushed by the falling bridge and another jumping off the ledge. To see the secret animation, press and hold down the W and B keys before the video sequence ends and keep both them down until the secret sequence begins.
Alternate Opening #1
In the main game menu, hold down the B, O, and T keys simultaneously while selecting "Continue Intro." An alternate video sequence will play. This was originally created to test the video production and compression technology, and was distributed as a demo on a few other LucasArts titles. It stars Marc Bauman, an actor who later returned as the ill-fated Cargo Captain.
Theatre 1138 Mode
What? Did you say you're a fan of that cult science fiction cornerstone starring one helpless human and his two artificial companions? Hint: we're not talking about Luke, Threepio and R2D2 here. We have a treat for you because unbeknownst to almost everyone, especially the legal department, Rebel 2 comes complete with alternate silly dialogue for the entire game. To activate Theatre Mode, type ALT-V to activate the secret code screen. Then type "ovres" and the spacebar to return to the game. Three silouettes will appear at the bottom of the screen to keep you company. Voices will be shut off and subtitles will appear, but now with alternate, silly text. This "egg" works especially well with "Movie Mode," above.
Alternate Opening #2
In the main game menu, hold down the F, O, and X keys simultaneously while selecting "Continue Intro." The intro video will play, but will a short but silly starting sequence.
Trooper Chorus Line
Play or jump to the fourth encounter in Chapter 12, The Sewer. Either shoot all the troopers or, using "Yoda Power Mode," skip past this encounter as well. As you walk into the elevator, hold down the A, C, and T keys. The "Abort" screen will come up momentarily when you press A . Ignore it. When C is pressed, it will go away. Keep the keys held down until the elevator door closes and the secret sequence begins.
