Publisher's summary

A group of terrorists have taken a senator hostage on Coruscant, and its up to a crack team of clone commandos to diffuse the dangerous situation.

Plot summary

The story opens during a mission on Coruscant in which a group of terrorists from the planet Haruun Kal is keeping hostages in a spaceport. They demand that the Republic leave their planet so they can stay out of the 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 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 the respect of Null ARC trooper 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 except for 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.

The squad then begins the attack. N-11 Ordo covers the roof as Darman sets explosives to destroy the door that protects the terrorists. Fi then threw some 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 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.
