On the distant planet Dorvalla, precious ore is mined by two competing companies: InterGalactic Ore and Lommite Limited. Neither rival suspects that they are central to a sinister plot masterminded by Darth Sidious, Lord of the Sith, himself.
Dispatched by Sidious on his very first solo mission, Darth Maul infiltrates Lommite Limited. There, his unique gifts of deception and subterfuge will set off an explosive chain of events that could destroy both companies, leaving them ripe for takeover by the Trade Federation. But a vengeful Lommite Limited Manager with his own thirst for retaliation against InterGal could blow Maul's cover — and all of Sidious's fiendishly laid plans;
Commissioned by his Master, Darth Sidious, Darth Maul is sent to intervene as a saboteur on the mining planet Dorvalla and see to it that the competing mining companies, Lommite Limited and InterGal, merge to one and leave the shipping of the ore to the Trade Federation. The young Sith succeeds and truly takes Darth Sidious's side.
