Cloud City 云城

Homeworld:
Bespin
母星:
贝斯平

电影



Suspended high among the pastel clouds of Bespin, held aloft by huge repulsorlifts built into its curved frame, is a floating metropolis of sophisticated beauty and political freedom. Cloud City exists not only as a mining colony, extracting valuable Tibanna gas from the depths of the giant planet, but also as a sanctuary for those trying to escape the turmoil gripping the galaxy.
一个精致美丽、政治自由的漂浮都市被建在其曲架内部的巨型反重力装置固定在空中,高悬于贝斯平色彩柔和的云层中。云城不仅仅作为采矿殖民地,从这颗气态巨行星深处采集贵重的提巴纳气体,更作为避难所,收容那些试图逃离银河系纷争的人。

Though profitable, Cloud City is small enough not to be noticed by larger authorities such as the Mining Guild. It prospered under the capable stewardship of Baron-Administrator Lando Calrissian. Calrissian, assisted by his aide Lobot, contended with self-sufficiency issues and labor difficulties throughout his brief term.
尽管利润丰厚,但云城还是太小,无法引起矿业行会等大型管理机构的注意。在城主行政官兰多·卡瑞辛的出色管理下,云城欣欣向荣。在副官洛博特的协助下,卡瑞辛在其任期内一直试图解决自给自足问题和劳动力矛盾。

The city is disk-shaped, with the upper concourse covered in circular landing platforms and towering spires. Beneath the city's belly is an immense spire that ends in a bulbous unipod. The interior corridors and plazas of the city are spotless white and chrome, providing an airy feel even when indoors.
这座城市是碟形的,有覆盖圆形着陆平台和高耸尖塔的上层大广场。城市腹部下方是一座巨大的尖塔,其顶端是一个球状单腿支架。城里的走廊和广场一尘不染、白光闪闪,甚至在室内都有腾云驾雾的感觉。

These pristine malls conceal the industrial heart of Cloud City. The gas processing facilities, smelting rooms and carbon-freezing chambers of the airborne city aren't as aesthetically pleasing, but they are modern and efficient. In the heart of the outpost is an immense chasm filled with whipping winds that helps power and support Cloud City.
这些纯洁的街道隐藏了云城的工业实质。这座空中城市的气体处理设施、冶炼房和碳凝室并不美观,但非常现代化和高效。城市中心是一个狂风呼啸的大裂口,帮助云城获得动力和支撑。

Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, the fugitive crew of the Millennium Falcon sought sanctuary on Cloud City. Sadly, the nefarious bounty hunter Boba Fett tracked the Falcon to Bespin. Fett contacted his Imperial clients, and was able to arrive on Cloud City before Han Solo, Leia Organa and the others. What was to be a haven instead became a trap. The Rebels were captured, and Han Solo was frozen in carbonite for delivery to the gangster Jabba the Hutt.
霍斯战役后不久,“千年隼号”的逃亡者来云城寻求避难。不幸的是,穷凶极恶的赏金猎人波巴·费特尾随“千年隼号”至贝斯平。费特联系了他的帝国客户,赶在汉·索洛和莱娅·奥加纳等人前抵达云城。原本的避难所成了陷阱。义军成员被捕,汉·索洛被碳凝,准备移交匪首赫特人贾巴。

These terrible acts were but a prelude to an incredible confrontation between Jedi and Sith. Darth Vader used the suffering of the Rebels to lure young Luke Skywalker to Cloud City. Within the industrial innards of the cosmopolitan outpost, Skywalker and Vader dueled with lightsabers. Though Vader bested Luke in combat, he was unable to sway Skywalker to the dark side of the Force. Luke was maimed in the encounter, and his spirit broken by the horrific revelation that Vader was indeed his father.
这些可怕的事情过后,难以置信的绝地与西斯对抗才正式开始。达斯·维德利用义军的痛苦将年轻的卢克·天行者引诱到到云城。在这座城市基地的工业中心,天行者和维德展开光剑决斗。维德虽然在决斗中击败了卢克,但无法将天行者拉入原力黑暗面。卢克的一只手在打斗中被砍断。当得知维德其实是他父亲这一可怕消息时,他的精神也崩溃了。

Luke tumbled down Cloud City's central chasm, being swept by the winds into an open chute. The curving tunnel dropped Luke into the open air, but young Skywalker was able to grab onto a protruding weather vane on Cloud City's underbelly. There, Leia and Chewbacca -- liberated by Lando -- were able to rescue the young Jedi aboard the Millennium Falcon.
卢克跌入云城的中心裂口,被风吹入一个打开的滑道。弯曲的隧道将卢克带到露天,但年轻的天行者抓住了云城底下伸出的风标。在那里,被兰多释放的莱娅和丘巴卡将年轻的绝地救上了“千年隼号”。

It was during these events that the Empire took control of Cloud City. Calrissian was barely able to warn the startled population about the occupation. Many fled the city before it was too late.
在这一系列事件期间,帝国接管了云城。卡瑞辛只能警告惊恐的居民云城被占。许多人在还来得及时逃离了这座城市。

Life eventually returned to normal on Cloud City. Following the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor, Cloud City's populace was able to celebrate the return of freedom in the galaxy.
云城的生活最终又恢复正常。帕尔帕廷皇帝在恩多战役中驾崩后,云城居民欢庆银河系重获自由。

衍生宇宙



The Corellian eccentric Lord Ecclessis Figg first founded Cloud City. Originally the Floating Home complex, Cloud City was little more than a Tibanna gas mining and refinement plant. It served as Figg's base of operations for years, and slowly evolved into a cosmopolitan center. With the opening up of shops, restaurants, and of course, casinos, Cloud City eventually became a popular resort along the Corellian Trade Spine.
云城是古怪的科雷利亚人伊克利齐斯·菲格勋爵创建的。最初作为“漂浮家园”建筑,云城只不过是提班纳气体采集和精炼厂。它作为菲格的业务基地运转了很多年,慢慢发展为城市中心。随着商店、饭店,当然还有賭场的陆续开张,云城最终成为科雷利亚贸易之脊沿线一处广受欢迎的度假胜地。

Cloud City is kept aloft with massive B/I repulsorlift engines. Huge tractor beams serve to anchor the city in place in Bespin's Life Zone, as well as to direct Tibanna into the various refinement and carbon-freezing plants aboard the station. These 16 pairs of massive Novaldex G47 tractor beam generators also draw heat to the thermo-converters that power the complex. To help secure Cloud City in the churning, intense windstorms that sometimes buffet the structure, a huge wind tunnel makes up the center of the city, stretching out below it in a long unipod and reactor stalk. This wind tunnel redirects dangerous gusts through the city, and also serves as a garbage dumping system.
云城依靠大型B/I反重力引擎浮在空中。巨型牵引波束将云城固定在贝斯平生物带内,同时将提班纳引导入城中的精炼和碳凝设备。这16对大型诺瓦尔德克斯G47牵引波束发生器还将热量带入热能转化器,为城市提供动力。翻滚、猛烈的暴风有时会侵袭云城。为了帮助这座建筑在风暴中巍然不动,一个巨型风洞被建在城市中央,一直延伸到城市底部长长的单腿支架和反应杆内。这个风洞让穿过云城的危险狂风转向,还能充当垃圾倾倒系统。

The architecture of Cloud City is similar to Alderaanian classical, with many white and cream-colored spires. The metropolis is divided into quarters named after the compass points. Cloud City is further divided into levels, beginning with 0 for the upper plaza, and continuing down to 392, where the lowest of the tractor beam and repulsorlift generators are found. Levels 1-50 house the premiere hotels, spas, clubs, museums, and casinos. Levels 51-100 have high-income housing for merchants, executives, and other wealthy citizens. Levels 101-120 are where the city's administrative offices are found. Levels 121-160 are the seedy, crime-ridden levels of Cloud City, known as Port Town. Here there are industrial loading docks, casinos, bars, and underworld activity. Levels 161-220 hold the service sector housing. Levels 221-280 house the factories. Levels 281-370 are where the economic heart of Cloud City rests: the Tibanna gas processing plants and mining quarters. Levels 371-392 house the massive tractor beams and repulsorlift generators that keep the city aloft. The maze-like Ugnaught tunnels that crisscross the metropolis permeate all of these levels. The city is 16.2 kilometers in diameter, and 17.3 kilometers tall.
云城的建筑与奥德朗古典建筑相似,有许多白色和乳白色的尖顶。这个都市被划分成以方位点命名的不同区域。云城被进一步划分成不同的层,从0层顶部广场开始,直到392层,即最底部的牵引波束和反重力发生器所在位置。1-50层是顶级宾馆、水疗、夜总会、博物馆和賭场。51-100层是商人和执行官等富裕公民的高档住宅。101-120层是城市的管理办公室。121-160层是云城破旧、罪犯猖獗的地方,被称为港口镇。这里有工业装卸码头、賭场、酒吧和黑社会活动场所。161-220层是服务行业住宅。221-280层是工厂。281-370层是云城经济命脉所在地:提班纳气体处理厂和矿区。371-392层是维持城市漂浮的大型牵引波束和反重力发生器。迷宫般的乌格瑙特人隧道遍布整个城市,纵贯每一层。这个城市直径16.2公里,高17.3公里。

Cloud City's government is divided into three branches: the administrator, the Exex, and the Parliament of Guilds. The Wing Guard handles security and police duties on Cloud City. The last official census taken on Cloud City prior to its take-over by the Empire listed its total population at 5,427,080, not including droids. The largest single group of Cloud City's population is the service sector, with 1,297,080 people, including maintenance crews, security forces, cloud car taxi drivers, doctors and hospital staff, and others.
云城政府分三个部分:行政官、执行官和行会议会。翼卫队负责云城的安全和警察工作。被帝国接管前的最后一次云城官方人口普查显示其人口总数为5427080人,不包括机器人。云城人口中数量最大的单一团体是服务行业,有1297080人,包括维护人员、警备队、云车出租车司机、医生和医务工作者等。

Once it took control of Cloud City, the Empire transformed the resort into a basic factory for Tibanna production. The new administrator, Captain Treece, brought back slaving practices, forcing the Ugnaught workers to toil to fill Imperial coffers. The Ugnaughts rebelled, however. Striking from secret floating platforms below Cloud City, the Ugnaughts lined the outpost with dangerous timer bombs. The remainder of Cloud City's populace was evacuated during the Ugnaught insurrection. Calrissian returned to find Cloud City a ghost town, and he helped the Ugnaughts rebel against Treece. Calrissian was unable to reclaim the city, however, until after the defeat of the Empire at Endor.
帝国一接管云城,就把这个热闹的度假胜地变成了简单的提班纳生产厂。新的行政官特里斯上校恢复了奴隶制,强迫乌格瑙特工人服苦役,为帝国创造财富。然而,乌格瑙特人造反了。乌格瑙特人从云城下方的秘密悬浮平台上发起进攻,在这座基地安装了许多危险的定时炸弹。剩下的云城平民在乌格瑙特人叛乱时撤离。卡瑞辛回来后发现云城成了一座鬼城。他帮助乌格瑙特人反抗特里斯。然而,直到帝国在恩多被击败后,卡瑞辛才再次获得这座城市。

Much like the rest of the galaxy, Cloud City underwent great upheaval during the political chaos that followed in the wake of the Battle of Endor. As Lando began to diversify his business holdings, he again lost Cloud City, ironically in the same fashion that he acquired it -- in a sabacc game. Calrissian lost a rigged game to the disgusting Zorba the Hutt. Cloud City again suffered Imperial occupation during Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign to retake the Core Worlds from the New Republic. The Tibanna factories were pressed into service to supply the Imperial war machine with vital blaster gas.
跟银河系的其它地方很像,云城在恩多战役后的政治动荡期内经历了剧变。随着兰多开始分散投资,他再次失去了云城。讽刺的是,他失去它的方式跟得到它的方式一样——用一场萨巴克賭博。卡瑞辛在一次出老千的賭博中输给了恶心的赫特人佐巴。在索龙元帅与新共和国争夺核心世界的战役中,云城再次被帝国占领。提班纳工厂被迫为帝国战争机器供应重要的爆能枪气体。

When the last stubborn embers of the Galactic Civil War were finally snuffed with the signing of an historic peace accord between the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant, outposts such as Cloud City prospered with a renewed sense of vitality. Tourism boomed and Cloud City started to cater to families, establishing wholesome entertainment venues to supplement its casinos and nightclubs.
随着新共和国与帝国残余签署历史性的和平条约,银河内战终于偃旗息鼓,云城这样的基地重获新生,欣欣向荣。旅游业蓬勃发展,云城开始面向家庭,建立健康的娱乐场所,而不再一味地发展賭场和夜总会。

幕后



The original "city in the clouds" was actually the Imperial capital, on the planet Alderaan, as described in the very first rough draft of Star Wars. A metropolitan center was suspended impossibly high on a thin stalk within a sea of clouds. Early Ralph McQuarrie production paintings depict an unmistakable predecessor to Cloud City buzzed by prototype TIE fighters. When this version of the Imperial capital proved too costly to realize on the screen, the concept was scrapped only to be revisited again in The Empire Strikes Back as an out of-the-way mining colony.
按照《星球大战》最早剧本草稿的描述,最初的“云中城”其实是帝国在奥德朗行星上的首都。一座中心城市依靠一根细杆在云海中悬于无法想象的高度。拉尔夫·麦夸里的早期制作图清楚描绘了一架原型TIE战斗机逼近云城的前身。当这个版本的帝国首都被证明太昂贵无法在银幕上实现时,这个设想只能放弃,结果在《帝国反击战》中被重新启用为偏僻的采矿殖民地。

ILM made Cloud City a reality through the use of miniatures and matte paintings. The interiors were filmed at Elstree Studios. The pristine floors and walls were maintained in immaculate condition by the crew constantly mopping and polishing the set between takes, and everyone having to wear cushioned shoes.
工业光魔通过运用微缩模型和背景彩绘来实现云城。云城内部在埃尔斯特里摄影棚拍摄。纯洁的地面和墙壁被工作人员保存在完美无暇的环境中,工作人员在拍摄间隙不停地擦洗和打磨,每个人都必须穿上有软垫的鞋。

For the Special Edition release of The Empire Strikes Back, ILM digitally revisited Cloud City, creating a locale with a greater sense of scope and commotion. Previously static matte paintings were instead realized with moving digital models, allowing the computer-generated Millennium Falcon and cloud cars to actually weave in and out of the skyline. The interiors of the city were also spruced up, with the formerly claustrophobic corridors being digitally opened up to reveal breathtaking views of the city and the spectacular Bespin skies.
在《帝国反击战》特别发行版中,工业光魔以数字方式再现云城,构建了一个更广阔更喧闹的场景。先前静止的背景彩绘转而被移动的数字模型取代,使计算机生成的“千年隼号”和云车能在地平线上穿梭。城市内部依然整洁,先前封闭的走廊被数字化重建后能看见令人惊叹的城市美景和壮观的贝斯平天空。
