Plot summary[edit | edit source]
After surviving the hair-raising events of The Rising Force and The Dark Rival, Jedi Knight Qui-Gon and 13-year-old apprentice Obi-Wan are officially Master and Padawan. The two have been sent off on their first mission by Master Yoda, who has given them a boring assignment: overseeing the elections on Gala, where Prince Beju has been forced to submit his promised throne to a popular vote. As usual for our Jedi heroes, though, nothing goes quite as planned…
On the way to Gala they get hijacked to Phindar by Paxxi Derida, the brother of Guerra using the pretext of a fuel leak.Phindar is ruled by an evil Syndicat that has the technology to erase the minds of any rebel or enemy they get their hands on. The brothers say that they planned to kidnap the two Jedi warriors because they needed their help to prevent the artificially created food shortages that are ruining the planet. Faster than the flick of a lightsaber, Master and apprentice find themselves back in hot water, struggling to help their Phindarian buddies overthrow the Syndicat crime lords. After a double-cross here and a blaster fight there, the two discover that even Prince Beju is involved in the Syndicat's nefarious schemes.
