  1. chapter 25: Ben opens his eyes to see the alarm lights in the control room of Sinkhole Station. His father is still lying motionless no the gurney. Ben and Luke have trouble getting blood back to their muscles. Rhondi tells them it’s always like this at first. They’ll have to wait a minute. Ben rather feels guilty for how he treated her. They sip hydrate packs. He asks Luke if all they saw was real. Luke tells him that he’s the detective and should work it out. Ben relates how they both saw the same people but can they really trust that since they were outside their bodies.
  2. chapter 24: Vestara knows Ahri will have to die. It’ll break her heart to do it, too. However, she can tell that Xal is going to make a move against Lady Rhea soon. Only 15 members of the crew are still alive. A power struggle right now will cut into that number, but Xal has an opening as Lady Rhea’s stature has been reduced by the plantlife on this world. The last two weeks have had the entire crew brought down to search for Ship, leaving only one pilot left aboard. Ahri keeps trying to get Ves to clarify her position with Ship. She knows that she cannot let him think that
  3. chapter 23: In the Millennium Falcon, Allana straps in wearing a vac suit and a battle harness. It breaks Han’s heart that his granddaughter is having to learn the ways of the galaxy so early, but Tenel Ka feels that the heiress to the Hapan throne must do just that. He cannot help but think back on his children and how they grew up too fast, drawn by a destiny while they were still too young. She is helping him boot up the Falcon for their trip to Shedu Maad. Leia is taking another ship with the Jedi patients. In the gun turrets, Dordi and Zal, former members of Saba’s Wi
  4. chapter 22: Ben makes as many preparations as he can considering that Sinkhole Station may blow up at any moment. He doesn’t know how much longer his father can last. The guides died a week ago. Rhondi sits nearby, looking healthy, cuffed to a floor beam. She asks what he’s doing. He doesn’t really know yet. He promised his father that he would not go beyond the shadows and that he’s supposed to report back to the Masters. That had been before the paranoid delusions started. His thoughts haunt him with accusations that they are both in danger. Still, he knows the Mind Walke
  5. chapter 21: Luke cannot measure time at all, but he knows she is here. It’s that familiar presence calling to him, desperate and hungry. They are in the front of a grotto. His escorts remind him that Jacen went inside, but that doesn’t mean Luke has to. Luke admits that, at his age, intense feelings of this kind are always more welcome than frightening. They are in a world where the jungle rises all around them. Luke gets the feeling they are moving much more slowly here in order to savor their surroundings. Ryontarr wonders if Luke fears the cause of the feelings. Afte
  6. chapter 20: Though surrounded by ysalamiri, Leia cannot help but feel that something as they prepare to move their three Jedi patients. Han notes that there are a couple of expensive rental vehicles near the grungy-low-price hostel nearby. One obviously doesn’t go with the other. Leia doesn’t think it’s logical for Daala to be using high-tech surveillance on them, but a lot has happened lately that she wouldn’t have thought possible. Han doesn’t think it’s GAS anyway. Daala has called most of them back to her hidden prison, fearing Jaina is going to try to rescue Valin and Jyse
  7. chapter 19: Everyone knows that the blockhouse across from the Galactic Justice Center is actually a secret prison. Kyp thinks it’s a psychological deterrent. Cilghal agrees, but isn’t sure that’s where Valin and Jysella are being held. Jaina thinks it is as Daala is trying to do everything by the book. They have the writ which Saba wants Jaina to keep as it is her plan. Actually, it was Jag’s plan, but she didn’t mention that. The masters are already upset at his willingness to withhold the Mandalorian deal from them. He’s not allowed to enter the Temple anymore and, while
  8. chapter 18: Abeloth lives in a cave on the side of the volcano, living here because she loves the water and because the plants are not so dangerous here. She takes the search party down to the river every morning to splash in the water and bask on the beach. In her presence, the carnivorous plants never attacked. To be honest, the party, though still searching for Ship, would rather be here in the protection of Abeloth. Vestara knows they should be concerned, but the respite is nice. When she receives the summons through the Force from Lady Rhea, she is with Ahri, taking advantag
  9. chapter 17: Jagged Fel arrives at Tahiri Veila’s arraignment and offered a seat next to Chief Daala. He sees the Solos in the spectator seats, sitting far from Jaina. He feels badly about the rift in their family, but his duties to the Empire didn’t give him much of a choice. Still, none of them would have missed the arraignment. Jag knows how close they’ve been to Tahiri since the death of their son Anakin. A combination of what she meant to him, guilt over how Jacen had manipulated her and gratitude about her change of heart that had saved lives at the end of the war probably b
  10. chapter 16: Two Mind Walkers, siblings, Rolund and Rhondi Tremaine, wait with Ben aboard the Jade Shadow, eating. He doesn’t blame them for wanting food, but, if they don’t slow down, the Shadow will have to reprovision when it leaves this place. The inhabitants calls this Sinkole Station. He’s learning a lot from the Tremaines, but doesn’t entirely trust them. His father’s IV nozzle keeps falling out of his mouth and puts him at risk of being dehydrated. The Tremaines look rather guilty at this news which rather confirms to Ben that one of them is removing it. They don’
  11. chapter 15: Luke remains a manifestation of Force energy that is more real than the body he’s left in the meditation chamber. Time goes by slowly and it’s hard to tell how much has passed. Seek Ryontarr leads Luke into the meditation. When Luke feels his body fall away, anything inanimate appears in shadow. Seek explains that the gatherers here come from all belief systems in the Force. Many from places that believe the Force is a rainbow, with multiple aspects. However, Seek tells Luke that there is only one Force and many ways to see it. The Force will sustain his bod
  12. chapter 14: Vestara can feel Ship out in the jungle, but he doesn’t want the Tribe here. He’s taught them what they need to know to restore the Sith Empire. Abandoning him here is not within their orders, though. The Eternal Crusader has been sent to find Ship and return him to Kesh. Vestara admits to Lady Rhea that Ship is trying very hard to push them back. This planet, sadly, is not the type of place that they would prefer to be. Having brought Xal on the landing party so she could keep an eye on him, Rhea contacts Crusader to have it prepare a tractor beam when they find S
  13. chapter 13: Jaina disables the cleaning droid and determines how it works. She just can’t figure out how Javis Tyrr got hold of such a sophisticated one. A little more research determines Moff Lecersen to be the source. She comms Jag and insists he come to the Temple right away. Jaina wishes she knew how much of their conversation in the limo had been passed along to Tyrr. Lowie would be able to help her with this, but then he would have to find out about the Mandalorian deal. Her parents come in, looking unhappy. They sit with her, not really interested in the news abou
  14. chapter 12: Ten minutes later, the Solos reach the Jedi Temple to find that Jaden Korr is the one guarding the entrance to the Council Chambers. Two apprentices normally do this which leads the Solos to believe that Master Hamner doesn’t want to be bothered by them in particular. He admits that he was told specifically not to let the Solos in. Han and Leia tell him that they have information that the Masters may want to consider before making their decision about Barv and Yaqeel. Korr reluctantly agrees to carry in the message for them. They are upset to find that Hamner is now
  15. chapter 11: The last of the Nexu cubs is named Anji. Her quills have been dulled, her claws clipped and she wears a dental implant that prevents her from biting hard enough to draw blood. The sight of her granddaughter with the cub makes Leia tear up as she remembers how good Jacen was with animals. She cannot help but think of her grown up on a throne, surrounded by people of all kinds. Allana confesses her fear that she might go crazy the way Barv and Yaqeel did and be put in carbonite. Han tells her that Anji would never let that happen to her. Leia reveals that they’ve as
  16. chapter 10: Moff Lecersen can’t help but admire intelligence and ambition completely devoid of morality in Javis Tyrr. He’s also quite irritated to see the footage of the Solos locking the GAS out of the Temple, hindering the same law they themselves always insist others follow. Lecersen himself would like to be in a position to make sure Han Solo can never hold a blaster on him again as he had on the Anakin Solo. Jagged Fel isn’t ruthless enough to head the Galactic Empire too much longer. When he inevitably makes a mistake, Lecersen and several others will be waiting to plunge
  17. chapter 9: Luke and Ben are standing inside the chamber, watching floating bodies drift around them, but they are certainly living bodies. As they break the seal, the odor of some decomposed bodies hits them, but it is largely drowned out by the overpowering scent of many that have remained unclean for a long time. A large energy source seems to be fixed above, reminding them a bit of Glowpoint at the former Centerpoint Station. Ben starts to lead the way in, then jumps back, telling his father that he thinks his old friend has found him. Luke senses a cold tentacle of long
  18. chapter 8: The Eternal Crusader floats through the colorful whirls, searching for Ship. Vestara Khai reaches out and finds his presence. The ship is basking in the Dark Side energy of a new entity, filled with hunger and longing. She realizes that this Dark Side presence commanded Ship. It will not return to her. Lady Rhea’s executive officer, Yuvar Xal, questions whether Vestara can really sense Ship. Vestara assures him it is Ship. There is a great deal of political maneuvering on this vessel, something that all the Tribe must become adept at as it is part of their society.
  19. chapter 7: Bazel Warv, though comatose, is having convulsions which have caused damage to many of the vehicles in the hangar. The two apprentices at the entrance have tried to help. Melari Ruxton apologizes for hitting Barv with a second tranquilizer dart when he kept trying to get up. Leia and Han assure her that she did the right thing. If she hadn’t, Barv could have recovered and run outside. The other apprentice, Reeqo, agrees that he’d rather be in a comfortable cell in the Temple than hanging somewhere in carbonite. Leia realizes the impact all this has had on young Jedi,
  20. chapter 6: On the way out, Jaina waves to Captain Atar from the inside of Jag’s speeder. She can tell he’s angry, especially since his men haven’t been able to get the gate open. Jag can’t believe Daala would be foolish enough to send an officer so easily manipulated by the Jedi Mind Trick. Jaina explains that it wasn’t the Force, it was a trick her father learned years ago. The speeder is now blocked by GAS forces. The driver offers to fly over them, but Jag doesn’t want them to think they are being threatened. Jaina admits that she probably shouldn’t have ticked off Atar by wa
  21. chapter 5: When Barv falls, however, he lands on Jag’s speeder, putting a sizable dent in it. Jag assures Han that the speeder is easily repaired. He’s just relieved Barv didn’t land on Jaina. Jaina assures him that she’s tough enough to handle it. Privately, Han muses on whether it’s a good idea for those two to be married. He knows the rigid duty-bound type enough to know that Jag’s responsibilities will always come first, even over Jaina. Jaina goes to grab Barv, asking her father to retrieve Yaqeel. Jag instructs his driver to keep his weapon down and stay quiet about this whole
  22. chapter 4: Jedi Knight Bazel Warv is having a great day, having spent the morning with Amelia Solo and the afternoon with his friend, Yaqeel Saav’etu, a Bothan Jedi. Yaqeel seems out of sorts today. He isn’t sure if she’s irritated with him or at being unable to complete her assignment of getting into Tahiri Veila’s apartment to determine why she wasn’t returning Jaina’s calls. It hadn’t helped that the Toydarian landlord didn’t succumb to the Jedi Mind Trick, became offended and has vowed to watch the place all day. He wonders if she’s just worried about the public trying to avoid
  23. chapter 3: As Ben struggles to deal with the station’s rotation in order to dock, Luke can sense the writhing, needy tentacle through the Force. This must be what Ben felt while at Shelter, but he can’t tell what it actually did to him. Upon landing, Ben concentrates on repair reports. Luke thinks repairs can wait; he asks if Ben is experiencing more memories. Ben assures him he’s not trying to avoid anything out there, but the ship needs to be ready to leave in a hurry if they encounter something bad. Luke wishes Ben were willing to face his demons head on. In any case, there
  24. chapter 2: In the Maw, Luke and Ben feel that something is watching them. Luke admits he’s actually eager to meet the Mind-Drinkers that the Aing-Tii warned them about. Ben can’t help but feel awe at how calm his father is, but he snaps when Luke asks if Ben felt this when he was at Shelter as a child. He had been a very little child. Something had frightened him, though, enough to keep him afraid of the Force for many years. He meditates on the Maw Installation, having no conscious memories of the place when he lived there, until he finds a long-buried instance of holding a stranger
  25. chapter 1: In the Jedi Temple, Han and Leia watch Seff Hellin and Natua Wan try unsuccessfully to breach their cells with their hands. Depriving them of access to the Force seems cruel, but it’s one of the few ways to keep them under control. It’s hard to see these young people suffer so much through no fault of their own; it’s too close of a reminder of their inability to save Jacen. Cilghal asks after “Amelia” and is concerned when told she is being watched by Bazel Warv, also known as Barv. He’s very gentle and good with the little girl, but Cilghal points out that the only con
