A young Jango Fett finds himself trapped behind enemy lines in the second issue of "Open Seasons," a limited series revealing the history of this notorious bounty hunter. Hounded by the evil Death Watch, Fett and his crew must charge headlong into one of their most dangerous missions, and not everyone is coming home…
The True Mandalorians divided up into three squads: Vertigo Squad, an aerial-attack company under Montross; Headhunter Squad, a heavy cleanup company under Jaster Mereel, and a basic infantry and security squad under Jango Fett, Jango's Grunts. This was the first time Fett had been made a squad commander.
The True Mandalorians left their carrier ship over Korda 6 in Meteor-class Q-Carriers. The first sign of trouble was when they came under ion cannon fire while landing, causing one to crash, killing all aboard, and at least one other to land disabled and damaged. As the survivors formed up, they came under intense and coordinated Kordan blaster fire, catching the Mandalorians unprepared, causing many casualties. Jaster gets gunned down.
Mereel ordered Vertigo Squad to abort its attack on the Kordan gun emplacements, but Montross refused, leading his squad into heavy fire, and only surviving when Mereel's forces came to his aid. Fett used the aerial attack as a diversion, taking his squad to rescue the trapped Korda Defense Force training squad, but instead became ambushed by a Death Squad unit. When Vizsla appeared on the battlefield, Montross abandoned Jaster, whom he had been protecting, in hope of becoming Mandalore. This left Jaster open to attack, and he was killed.
Jaster's body was recovered by Fett, who pulled him back behind friendly lines. Montross also made it back and survived the retreat action.
