Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Aboard the Trade Federation battleship Stockade, the incarcerated Feeorin Nym recounts the story of how he got there to his Neimoidian cellmate.

In orbit around Maramere in the Havoc, Nym, Kole and Jinkins waited for the mercenary Vana Sage and her "buyers," a group of bounty hunters, to trade experimental weapons for Stygium crystals.

Once on board the space station, Nym and his crew met the buyers to exchange goods. When Nym revealed that he had buried the power cells for the weapons as a safeguard, a fight ensued between the crew of the Havoc and the bounty hunters.

Under the threat of droidekas, Sage captured the crew, sent Kole and Jinkins to Maramere in an escape pod, and took the Havoc as payment for delivering Nym to the Trade Federation.

Back in the cell, Merick and Bavo arrive to rescue Nym, who vows revenge on Vana Sage.
