==Plot summary==
The story opens during a mission on [[Coruscant]] in which a group of [[terrorist]]s from the planet [[Haruun Kal]] is keeping hostages in a [[spaceport]]. They demand that the [[Galactic Republic|Republic]] leave their [[planet]] so they can stay out of the [[Clone Wars|war]] or else they will kill the hostages with explosives. A [[Jedi]] comes to negotiate the surrender but only gets killed and the body thrown out with a bomb attached to it. [[Fi Skirata|Fi]] jumps on top of the bomb before it can detonate, shielding the [[Coruscant Security Force|police]] with his armor. Luckily the armor protects him too and he is regarded as a hero for saving the men and gains the respect of [[Null-class Advanced Recon Commando|Null ARC]] trooper [[Ordo Skirata|N-11 Ordo]]. This is also when the character [[Kal Skirata]] enters. Skirata is the man responsible for training some of the Republic Commandos including all of [[Omega Squad|Omega]] except for [[RC-3222|Atin]]. The squad, after watching the video captured by a camera on the Jedi, figured out that the terrorists would be in colored coded clothes green, gray, tan and dark brown.

On [[Coruscant/Legends|Coruscant]], [[Omega Squad]] is sent to a [[Spaceport/Legends|spaceport]] where a group of [[Terrorist/Legends|terrorists]] from [[Haruun Kal/Legends|Haruun Kal]] is keeping hostages. The terrorists demand that the [[Galactic Republic/Legends|Republic]] leave their [[Planet/Legends|planet]] so they can stay out of the [[Clone Wars/Legends|war]], or they will kill the hostages with explosives. [[Null-class Advanced Recon Commando|Null ARC]] trooper [[Ordo Skirata|N-11 Ordo]], [[Kal Skirata]], and a [[Jedi/Legends|Jedi]] arrive, and the Jedi enters the room with the terrorists to negotiate. The squad, watching video from a camera the Jedi smuggled in, mentally catalogue the terrorists based on the colors of their clothing: green, gray, tan and dark brown. The terrorists kill the Jedi and throw out his body with a bomb attached to it. [[Fi Skirata|Fi]] jumps on top of the bomb before it can detonate, shielding the [[Coruscant Security Force/Legends|police]] with his armor. Luckily the armor protects him too and he is regarded as a hero for saving the men and gains Ordo's respect.
   
The squad then begins the attack. N-11 Ordo covers the roof as [[Darman Skirata|Darman]] sets explosives to destroy the door that protects the terrorists. Fi then threw some [[Flash-bang grenade|flash bangs]] in to stun the terrorists and upon entering shot the green one in the chest. Atin takes out the gray one out and Darman and Niner take out the dark brown one. But the terrorists had switched the clothes of a hostage with the tan man and only by shielding the hostage does Skirata keep Fi from shooting. Then Ordo saw the one in the hostage's clothing with a gun and killed him. Later it was discovered that the hostage who had been framed was an important executive for the [[Corporate Sector]] (CSA), people with a lot of money and armaments. And that the terrorists were trying to get the hostage shot because then the CSA would have sided with the [[Confederacy of Independent Systems|CIS]]. All the hostages are rescued, including a Senator who was the bait to attack the terrorists, and the CSA did not lose the executive.

Publisher's summaryEdit

A group of terrorists has taken a senator hostage on Coruscant, and it's up to a crack team of clone commandos to defuse the dangerous situation.

Plot summaryEdit

On Coruscant, Omega Squad is sent to a spaceport where a group of terrorists from Haruun Kal is keeping hostages. The terrorists demand that the Republic leave their planet so they can stay out of the war, or they will kill the hostages with explosives. Null ARC trooper N-11 Ordo, Kal Skirata, and a Jedi arrive, and the Jedi enters the room with the terrorists to negotiate. The squad, watching video from a camera the Jedi smuggled in, mentally catalogue the terrorists based on the colors of their clothing: green, gray, tan and dark brown. The terrorists kill the Jedi and throw out his body with a bomb attached to it. Fi jumps on top of the bomb before it can detonate, shielding the police with his armor. Luckily the armor protects him too and he is regarded as a hero for saving the men and gains Ordo's respect.

The squad then begins the attack. Ordo covers the roof as Darman sets explosives to destroy the door that protects the terrorists. Fi then throws some flash bangs in to stun the terrorists and upon entering shoots the green one in the chest. Atin takes out the gray one out and Darman and Niner take out the dark brown one. But the terrorists had switched the clothes of a hostage with the tan one and only by shielding the hostage does Skirata keep Fi from shooting. Then Ordo sees the one in the hostage's clothing with a gun and kills him. Later they learn that the hostage who had been framed was an important executive for the Corporate Sector Authority, an organization with a lot of money and armaments, and that the terrorists were trying to get the hostage shot so that the Corporate Sector would side with the Confederacy of Independent Systems. All the hostages are rescued, including the executive and a Senator who was the bait to attack the terrorists.
