  1. chapter 29: This time, Han is impersonating an exterminator to get into the Detention Center. Zekk, Taryn, Jaina and Leia, Natua Wan, Seff Hellin, Yaqeeel Saav’etu and Kunor Bannare all here. They’ve disguised a heavily-armored transport as a supply van which comes along and dispatches R2 and Threepio. Inside the detention center, they walk down the corridor, passed angry prisoners who cheer when they shoot the holocams. Yaqeel reports they’ve got pursuers with concussion missles where she is. Leia urges her to limit casualties. The sound of explosions doesn’t help. Tar
  2. chapter 28: As the Jade Shadow lifts up, Luke watches Taalon slumped in the co-pilot’s seat. He’s still wearing his hazard suit like the rest of the warriors who are now in the back with Ben and Vestara. He tries to convince Taalon and Khai that they are already infected because the plague spreads through the Force. He uses a healing meditation to keep the infection at bay himself. Neither want to believe him, but he’s planted seeds of doubt so that’s enough. Soon, however, the two Sith start to panic when they see several ship’s coming. He suspects they are succumbing t
  3. chapter 27: Luke can feel the Balance tipping toward darkness as the ship comes in above the Fallanassi’s island. Something has happened on Coruscant. It’s coming through the Force in waves of guilt and grief. He’s hid the Jade Shadow. Ben is watching a holovid, covered in sores and looking unkempt. Neither he nor Vestara are infected, but it’s easier to control Vestara by letting her think that they are. Luke tells him to prepare to lift. Ben warns him they cannot break quarantine. Luke assures him they’ll be fine. Vestara comes in and Luke notes the arrival of the Si
  4. chapter 26: High above Saba, Hamner has the advantage, but he is not prepared to force a confrontation with several Masters. They tell him he lost their confidence when he didn’t take him into theirs. He reminds them that Master Skywalker put him in charge. They point out that it was with the agreement of Daala who surely felt that Hamner would be easy for her to control. They all know he’s been under stress. The Council is intended to alleviate the burden of one Master doing it all on his own. Hamner refuses to let them lead the whole Order into treason. Saba tells them
  5. chapter 25: On the Errant Venture, Booster Terrik is determined to free his grandchildren if it means crashing the ship into the Chief of State’s office. The last guest boards and it’s an uninvited one. Wynn Dorvan tells Booster that a 50 million credit tournament attracts attention, especially since no one learned that it would be hosted here until after they paid their entry fee. The Venture was nearly denied orbit until General Jaxton happened to pull some strings. He happens to be one of the players. Booster has an aide check to see if there’s an available seat. There’s so
  6. chapter 24: Two young Jedi guard the operations hangar when Kenth Hamner arrives. They confront him over not being in his quarters. Hamner was requested to remain there with two guards, now unconscious, watching the door, but he assures them that it’s not true. He tells them that launching the StealthXs is an act of treason. The Arcona Jedi, Vaala Razelle, reminds him of her name. He is chagrined to find out the other Jedi, the Bothan Yantahar Bwau’tu is a relative of the admiral. They refuse to let him enter. He uses the Force to pull their lightsabers away and knock th
  7. chapter 23: With Kenth Hamner no longer obeyed, the Jedi Council has sent the Solos to the Detention Center to retrieve Valin and Jysella Horn. The Masters are working on a plan to send help to Luke without having to fight the GA. Corran and Mirax are helping behind the scene. Natua Wan, recently returned from the Transitory Mists, insisted on being here for the rescue mission. Artoo reports that the tracking devices on the carbonite pods show that they are moving around. Zekk thinks the GA is on to them. Han notes how Jaina looks at Zekk and Taryn with envy now. It’s no
  8. chapter 22: At the sea, the portmaster tells Luke that the Shadow is in a cave. He leaves quickly enough that Luke wonders if Ben’s warning through the Force might not indicate that he’s going to be betrayed. When he arrives, he is greeted by his old friend, Akanah. She’s unhappy he’s brought weapons here. Luke tells her he’s tracking a very dangerous being. Akanah wonders what she has to do to convince him he’s got nothing to fear from her. Luke would rather she convince him that she is who she says she is. He asks her what the name of his mother was. Akanah hoped he’d
  9. chapter 21: Vestara secretly follows Luke and his guide while wearing a bright orange hazard suit. She’s already sent a message to the Lost Tribe, telling them that the Skywalkers have tracked Abeloth to Pydyr. When she tries to steal an landspeeder, however, she finds Ben inside. He insists they go back, but she points out that she’s not going willingly. Unless he wants this to get deadly, he can come with her. They are only following his father to make sure he doesn’t walk into a trap. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  10. chapter 20: In the spaceport, Luke sees one other ship in the hangar. The crew is peering out of the viewports, looking fearful and tired. He immerses himself in the White Current to see things as they are. He finds that the crew members only believe they are sick. Luke tells the two teenagers to stay here while he goes to find the Shadow. He sees that others here also appear to be covered in blisters and sores. Considering how powerful Abeloth’s illusions are, he doubts that he should be able to see through the guise this easily if it were her doing. He tells the port
  11. chapter 19: The Emiax tracks the Shadow’s signal to a moon near Almania. Luke thinks that, rather than the moon Auremesh, she’s gone to Pydyr. A debate erupts over whether they can trust Vestara. It ends when she rushes to the refresher. Luke assures Ben he’s disabled the engineering hatch and the auxiliary comm station. Besides, he needs to send a message to Cilghal. Ben asks why he thinks Abeloth is going to Pydyr. Luke tells him he knows what she’s looking for. When Ves returns, she finds the hatch locked. Ben stalls while Luke gets the message from the Temple, te
  12. chapter 18: Jagged Fel meets Daala outside her office, looking at the Jedi Temple. He jokes that it’s not wise to attempt a paraglider attack on the Jedi. She asks if he’s seen the HoloNet news. He has been watching it, but it really doesn’t affect the Empire. Daala thinks it does, considering his relationship with Jaina Solo. Jag admits she broke off their engagement not long after the attack at the restaurant. Daala hope he doesn’t think she was responsible or that attempt on his life. He points out that it isn’t clear that the attack was directed at him. A lot of
  13. chapter 17: Zekk and Tekli bring several recovered Jedi back from their temporary home at Shedu Maad. Sadly, the Jedi waiting on the Temple’s landing pad are distracted by the death of Madhi Vaandt. Watching on their datapads, the feed shows Shohta explaining how the team is hiding in a shop nearby, after Madhi was killed trying to report on what’s happening here. He shows how the two Jedi are battling the Mandalorians in a stairwell. Shohta tells the audience how Madhi had impressed upon him that a journalist must report the story, not interfere with it. He hopes she forgives
  14. chapter 16: Mahdhi Vaandt watches the recreation area where thousands of Octusi are gathered. Tyl Krain, her mentor and now-cam operator, begins to record. She asks if he sees the Jedi yet. He tells Shohta to get the power generator going for a live HoloNet feed. Several Mandalorian assault sleds are hovering nearby. This area is a mandated assembly place provided for the Octusi by the Blauduns. Knowing what’s about to happen, Mahdi suppresses the urge to implore the Octusi to flee or to at least announce to the Mandos that they are here recording live. Shohta wonders wh
  15. chapter 15: The good thing about the slave revolts is that it is attracting attention away from Tahiri’s trial. The courtroom is barely packed today. Eramuth arrives, looking bright and fashionable. Tahiri comments on how he looks better rested today. Eramuth tells her he’s not been sleeping poorly, but Dekkon will be. They are distracted by the arrival of the Solos, Lando and a female attorney named Sardonne Sardon, whom Eramuth greets with courtesy and admiration. She is surprised to find such a distinguished advocate is aware of some of her cases. He is less happy whe
  16. chapter 14: When they reach the edge of the jungle, at the edge of the sandy bank, there are dozens of drendek lizards flying over the river. On the beach itself, reptiles are drinking. Not far from shore, is the Sith ship, Emiax. Jade Shadow is gone. Force lightning rings past them. Ben suspects the Sith are chasing Vestara. Luke suggests it could be a ruse to make them think that. He wants Ben to prep the Emiax. Ben assures his father that he saw Taalon hit Vestara during the fight. Luke reminds him that, if the Sith thought that she was truly working with the Jedi,
  17. chapter 13: Vestara is sent flying by the punch. She wouldn’t dream of begging for mercy, especially with her father far worse the wear after his fight with Luke Skywalker. They walk around her, determine they’ve done enough damage to play Ben Skywalker’s sympathy and query Vestara as to the nature of her relationship with him. She tells them that Ben believes he can pull her to the Light Side. However, she thinks she’s falling in love with him and doesn’t want to. Taalon encourages her to do so as Skywalker will sense it in the Force. So long as she uses what she feels,
  18. chapter 12: Dr. Ysa’i has been responsible for treating Bwua’tu’s injuries: from his damaged organs to his amputated arm. Right now, the admiral is in a coma and Ysa’i really can’t answer Daala’s question about when he will recover. There is brain activity, but it’s deep and nonreactive. Something is happening, but it’s not related to what is going out in the real world. Rynog Asokaji is here, on good terms since Daala commended him for his courage in confronting her, noting his own passing familiarity with brain wave scans. Wynn Dorvan doesn’t think fitting someone in a com
  19. chapter 11: The Solos and Lando wait in Sullustan Senator Luewet Wuul’s meeting room. Jaina brings them up to speed on her meeting with the Council. Hamner had accused her of sabotaging his attempts to resolve the disupte with Daala. Though Jaina admits he’s under a lot of pressure, she is worried about this belief that he can cut a deal with her. Han doubts that will work. The only thing that will resolve the matter now is taking her out of the equation; something that he should have done after she attacked them with Allana there. Leia reminds him that they have no evide
  20. chapter 10: Jaina cannot help but notice the tension in the air before she and Lando give their briefing to the Council. Kenth Hamner is indulging this briefing because he knows that they have urgent news, but cautions Jaina that they will discuss her unauthorized mission later. Kyp summarizes what they already know about her trip til now, including the fact that whatever happened in the Maw has released the captive Jedi from their paranoia. She hadn’t come to tell them that, but is glad to hear that it’s happened. Lando explains that they have something else. They explain
  21. chapter 9: Ship hovers over the beginning of the pool as the forest is too dense for it to land. Luke was here while Mind Walking, but he’s hesitant to give the Sith access to it. He was told before that this will allow one to see all that is passed and all that will come. Besides, the more time they take, the more time Abeloth will have to recover. They finally agree to split up, sending Ben and Vestara upstream while the adults go downstream. Her father lowers her down the gorge using the Force. Luke and Ben roll their eyes at such casual use of the Force, but Vestara s
  22. chapter 8: The Sith are convinced that Luke has hidden Abeloth’s true body. By the time they all agreed to go back to the Jade Shadow, their prisoner had fled. Now, they are walking through the forest on a hunt for her again. Luke thinks they should change tactics, but the Sith thinks this is just an attempt to get rid of them. They finally agree to go back to the ships for now. Ship is there, waiting. It’s damaged from its fight with Jaina. Luke challenges the Sith in their belief that they control Ship. It seemed surprised to see Ben here. It could be that Abeloth s
  23. chapter 7: Because use of the Force is not permitted in the courtroom, Leia cannot determine if Eramuth Bwua’tu is sleeping while Dekkon examines an Imperial Communications Intelligence expert, but it certainly seems like it. Lt. Pagorski cannot reveal too many details due to issues of military security, but she does testify that she intercepted a communication between Tahiri and Darth Caedus after Admiral Pellaeon ordered Imperial forces to assist Admiral Niathal. Tahiri has already denied making such a transmission. Pagorski makes a number of speculative statements that Eramuth d
  24. chapter 6: Kenth Hamner knows he never should have taken the job. All that’s happened is that all the masters are reminded that he’s not Luke Skywalker. The whole council is here, sans Luke, including its newest member, the Yuzzem ]Barratk’l. Octa Ramis protests that the Horns are still being held despite the fact that the Jedi no longer pose a danger. Hamner doesn’t want to cause another problem with Daala now that the Mandalorians have left. The others disagree. The time to push their advantage is now, while publicity is still in their favor. Hamner argues that raiding
  25. chapter 5: A thousand Mandalorians wait outside the Temple. GA security arrives, escorting Chief of State Daala. Hamner has to caution Han that they want to urge Daala to end the siege, not antagonize her. He actually would prefer to send someone else as Han isn’t a Jedi and lacks patience. The others do not agree. Han prepares to head out, reminding Turi and Sothais to behave normally and wait for his signal. He meets Daala at the steps, confirms that Master Hamner only offered to turn over the affected Jedi and lets Sothais and Turi outside. A xenopsychiatrist is on ha
