On one of the moons of Naboo, General Obi-Wan Kenobi and his troops make a horrifying discovery: the entire population of Gungan settlers has been wiped out in a genocidal chemical[1] attack by a power-mad Separatist commander. Worse, Anakin discovers that the commander's next target is Naboo itself, the home of his beloved Padmé!
