Plot summary[edit | edit source]
Commencement[edit | edit source]
The episode opens with an introduction by Jedi Master Kelleran Beq that the Jedi Knights have been the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy for over a thousand generations. Three Padawan teams must prove that they have the strength, knowledge and bravery to become Jedi Knights.
We are introduced to best friends 14-year old Sage and 12-year old Raphael of the Blue Team. They are followed by 14-year old Quentin and 12-year old Brayden of the Orange Team, who are brothers. We are then introduced to 11-year old best friends Zoe and Malayah of the Purple Team.
Master Beq explains that the contestants have to endure three trials: the strength trials on a distant world, the knowledge trials aboard a Jedi star cruiser, and a trial of bravery inside the Jedi Temple to become Jedi Knights. He asks if the Jedi Padawans will be tempted by the dark side or if they will keep their minds focused on the light side of the Force. He says that it is time to face their Jedi Temple Challenge.
On the forested world, Master Beq introduces himself and his trusty droids AD-3 and LX-R5 to the Padawans. AD-3 issues a greeting noise while LX-R5 beeps. He explains that Jedi search the galaxy for younglings, who are strong with the Force like themselves, to become the next generation of Jedi Knights.
AD-3 reveals the Padawans’ files. Sage says that she and Raphael are very good friends and have learned to communicate with each other very well. Raphael says that they are going to win while Sage ends with may the Force be with us. Older brother Quentin says that they are very competitive while Brayden says they have good team work and chemistry. Brayden thinks that they are going to crush the competition. Zoe says that they are really strong and really compatible and know each other at the back of their hand. She and Malayah says they are going to win today. AD-3 reminds the Padawans of the attributes that a Jedi must possess and the Padawans shout strength, knowledge and bravery.
Strength Trials[edit | edit source]
Master Beq backs up AD-3 and introduces them to the first challenge of the day, a Jedi obstacle trial called the Strength Trials, which they must complete in order to build their lightsaber. AD-3 explains that the Leap and Lift tests their jumping, the Power Pull tests their tests their might, Saber Stability tests their balance, and the Swing of Strength tests their swinging and strength. She explains that every obstacle they complete unlocks a piece of their lightsaber hilt. The first two teams to finish every obstacle and collect their hilt pieces will move on to the Knowledge Trial and be one step closer to entering the Jedi Temple.
Master Beq asks the Padawans if they are ready to put their training to use. After the padawans say yes, he uses the Force to life the rocks. AD-3 observes that the rocks are up, meaning that it is time to get down. Master Beq instructs the Padawans to step on the pedestal before sending them off.
Purple Team starts on the Leap and Lift where they have to grab two meiloorun fruits in order to release their hilt pieces from a wooden stockade. Master Beq praises Purple Team for obtaining their first set of hilt pieces. Blue Team starts on the Swing of Strength where one Padawan must swing across a chasm to discover which key hidden in a tree trunk will unlock the hilt piece. Brayden shouts that it is a square and Sage swings across to retrieve her piece. Blue Team obtain their first set of pieces. Orange Team enters the Power Pull challenge, which involves pulling themselves on a sled to the other side to unlock their hilt piece with a token. The two brothers pull themselves across and obtain their first set of hilt pieces.
Meanwhile, Malayah obtains her hilt piece, allowing the two friends to return to the pedestal with their first set of hilt pieces. Purple Team becomes the first team to deliver their first hilt pieces. Elsewhere, Orange Team returns from the Power Pull challenge while Sage and Raphael return form the Swing of Strength with their first hilt pieces, becoming the second team to deliver their first hilt pieces. Orange Team soon returns with their first set of hilt pieces; tallying everyone up by one. AD-3 compliments the Padawans for their competitiveness.
Purple Team starts on the Saber Stability challenge, which involves navigating over logs and knocking over floating rocks with training sabers and grab their hilt piece before retuning to the assembly stone. Zoe encourages Malayah while Beq praises them for their good stability.
Sage attempts to retrieve her hilt piece while Brayden swings across the chasm to reach his brother Quentin, who tells him to put their object in order to release the lightsaber hilts. Meanwhile, Purple Team unlocks their second set of hilt pieces. Sage manages to retrieve Blue Team’s second set of hilt pieces, earning the praise of AD-3 who says that she almost jumped over the Leap and Lift wall. Blue Team takes the lead by becoming the first to return to the assembly table with their hilt pieces.
Quentin and George soon return with their second set of hilt pieces. As Purple Team head back, the Orange Team enters the Leap and Lift challenge. Raphael unlocks Blue Team’s third hilt piece from the Power Pull. As AD-3 gives her running commentary, LX-R5 beeps. Malayah and Zoe soon return with their second hilt pieces, tying the teams which all have two pieces.
Orange Team soon obtain their third set of lightsaber hilts from the Leap and Lift while Blue Team enters the Power Pull challenge. Orange Team becomes the first team to return with their third set of hilt pieces, putting them ahead of the other teams.
At the Swing of Strength, Zoe tells Malayah that they are looking for a hexagon. Raphael soon returns with Blue Team’s third set of hilt pieces but Master Beq tells him to wait for his partner. Meanwhile, Brayden and Quentin obtain their fourth set of hilt pieces from the Saber Stability challenge while Malayah obtains their token from the tree. After Sage returns, the Blue Team returns to the competition.
Zoe helps Malayah across the chasm while Orange Team returns with their final hilt pieces to the assembly table. As Orange Team assembles their lightsaber hilts, Blue Team enters the Saber Stability challenge. AD-3 remarks about Sage’s strength with the training saber while LX-R5 beeps. Malayah swings back but the two fall, forcing her to make a second return attempt. Orange Team becomes the first to assemble their lightsaber hilts, qualifying them for the next trial.
Master Beq congratulates Orange Team while reissuing Blue and Purple Team that they are still in the race. Malayah makes a second attempt to swing back but misses the other side. LX-R5 beeps. Zoe helps her across during the third attempt, with Master Beq praising them for their team work. Purple Team returns with their third pieces before rushing off to their final challenge.
Meanwhile, Blue Team returns with their fourth pieces and begins assembling their lightsaber hilts. Malayah and Zoe enter the Power Pull challenge. Zoe falls from the sled but manages to hold on to the rope. Zoe gets up and heads back to the start. Master Beq encourages them not to give up while AD-3 praises Purple Team for their commitment. Raphael finishes assembling his ligthsaber hilt while Purple Team enters the Power Pull challenge. Sage drops one of her pieces but manages to assemble her lightsaber. Blue Team becomes the second team to complete the challenge.
Master Beq announces that the challenge is complete and tells Purple Team to return to the Jedi platform. He praises Purple Team for their efforts today, telling them that their team work was worthy of the Jedi. He says that they will be back in no time and tells them to head back to the Jedi Order for further training.
In a follow-up video, Zoe says that they are okay even though they lost because they tried their best and that it is all they can do. Malayah says that it actually taught us something and that the next time they will be better.
Meanwhile, Master Beq congratulates the Orange and Blue Teams and asks them if they are ready for the Knowledge trial. The Padawans shout yes. AD-3 says one trial down and two more to go. She tells LX-R5 to hurry up and the droid beeps grumpily in response.
Knowledge Trial[edit | edit source]
Story time[edit | edit source]
In space, Master Beq welcomes Padawans Sage, Raphael, Brayden and Quentin aboard the Jedi star cruiser Athylia. He asks the Padawans if they are ready for their second trial, to which they answer yes. He tells them that AD-3 will tell them a tale and that they will be asked questions and will need to work with their team-mates from the story hidden throughout the Athylia. The first team to answer all five questions correctly will be rewarded holocrons. He asks the Padawans if they are ready to hear their tale.
The Padawans say yes and AD-3 tells them to buckle up. She says she was joking before starting the story. Jayko was the best smuggler in the business. His book A Smuggler's Life was a bestseller in nine systems. Relaxing in the cantina with his drum-playing navigation droid Arch-E, Jayko was getting use to the retired life. Then something big and fierce crashed through the door.
"Where is he? Where's Jayko," the stranger bellowed.
"Oh no, it's Tan my old crew mate," Jayko said slanting.
The Gamorrean barrelled towards Jayko, a copy of Jayko's book in his five, meaty green fingers.
"Maybe you shouldn’t have written about him," Arch-E quipped.
Tan knocked over eight tables and 16 chairs trying to get to Jayko, who escaped into the kitchen hiding behind a pile of smelly blue cabbages and fried womp rats. Tan burst into the chicken and Jayko threw five cabbages at his head, each one bouncing off with one knock a pot of red dewback broth onto the floor. Jayko tried to run away but slipped over the soup and landed right on his rear.
Tan loomed over Jayko.
"I'm sorry, I should never have written about you," Jayko said. "Please don’t hurt me."
Relieved, Jayko pulled out a pen. The autograph was the least that he could do for his old friend even if he promised to himself to never listen to that life day song.
Question time[edit | edit source]
Master Beq compliments AD-3 by telling her that this is the best story she has told so far. He tells the Padawans to decide who will serve as the pilot, who will search for clues in the cockpit, while the engineer, who will take the engineer position searching for clues in the cabin. Raphael and Brayden volunteer to be the engineers while Sage and Quentin assume the pilot roles. AD-3 sends them to their stations and tells them to wait for their questions to be asked. She tells them that they have to find the correct answer. Engineers have to return it to the console while pilots have to hit the correct answer on the cockpit. She reminds them that they can communicate over their headsets.
For the first question, Master Beq tells the engineers to choose a tile representing the 16 objects that Tan knocked over trying to reach Jayko. He tells them to choose their tile. Raphael correctly picks a chair, gaining Blue Team one point.
For the second question, Master Beq asks the pilots the number of systems that Jayko's book was a bestseller in. Quentin correctly answers that it was nine systems, giving the Orange Team one point.
With the two teams tied, Master Beq asks both the pilots and engineers the title of Jayko's book. Quentin locks in first and says that it was a Smuggler's Life. The Orange Team gains a second point, taking the lead.
Master Beq then asks the engineers to choose a tile representing the instrument their Arch-E played. Raphael correctly answers that it was drum, gaining the Blue Team a second point. The two teams are tied two to two.
Master Beq then asks the pilots the color of the dewback broth. Quentin logs in first and answers that it was read, giving the Orange Team a third point. AD-3 remarks that LX-R5's exhaust smells like dewback broth. The astromech droid beeps in protest.
Master Beq then asks the engineers to choose a tile representing the item that Tan wanted Jayko to sign. AD-3 remarks that both teams are fast. Raphael retrieves a book, gaining the Blue Team a third point. AD-3 reports that the two teams are tied three to three.
Master Beq asks everyone who did Tan want an autographed copy of the book for. Sage replies that it was for his sister, gaining Blue Team a fourth point with a lead over Orange Team.
Master Beq then tells the engineers to find an item showing the object that Jayko threw at Tan. Brayden retrieves a tile showing a cabbage, gaining the Orange Team their fourth point. AD-3 reports that the two teams are tied up again and quips that her circuits cannot stand the drama. LX-R5 beeps, prompting AD-3 to respond that he lives for the drama.
Master Beq tells that the team with the next correct answer will move on to the second trial. He asks both the pilots and engineers the name of Jayko's navigator droid. Sage correctly responds that the droid's name was Arch-E.
Master Beq congratulates the Blue Team for completing the Trial of Knowledge. In a follow-up video, Raphael says that we had fun and won. Sage says that she is pretty happy and says they could have done better but that it was cool because they did really well.
Master Beq addresses the Orange Team, telling them that their effort was commendable and the Force was strong with them. Unfortunately, they did not complete the second trial. He tells them that their path to becoming a Jedi Knight is not over but that they will need to continue their training at the Jedi Order.
In a follow-up video, Quentin advises future Padawans about the importance of team work and being on the same page. Brayden says that even if you fail once, you shouldn’t give up. He tells them to do their best and keep trying.
Later, AD-3 asks if the Orange Team left and said that she totally spaced out there for a second. LX-R5 beeps while Master Beq awards Padawans Sage and Raphael with two holocrons, which they will need because they are going to the Jedi Temple. AD-3 tells the Padawans to shove their holocrons inside their pouches, saying that it won't break.
Master Beq tells the Padawans to take their seats in the cockpit and that he has entered the coordinates to the Jedi Temple into the navigation system. He and AD-3 tell the Padawans to "punch it" and they lift the hyperspace levers, taking the Athylia into hyperspace. The Athylia approaches a rocky world, orbited by two moons.
Jedi Temple Trial[edit | edit source]
Outside the Jedi Temple, Master Beq congratulates Padawans Sage and Raphael for making it to their final trial: the Jedi Temple. He says that this is what all their training has led them too. AD-3 says that they are so close to accomplishing their goals and urges them to stay focused. She tells them to leave their new hilts on the Saber Shrine, adding that they are not more than pieces of metal until they obtain their kyber crystals. Master Beq says AD-3 is correct, explaining that the Kyber crystals is what powers their blades. He tells them that the Kyber crystals are lying in the Temple, waiting for them to unlock it with their holocrons.
Master Beq tells them that he will be following their progress with the help of the Force. He warns them about the temptation of the dark side, that it will clear one path only to make the next path more difficult. He tells the Padawans to trust in the Force to guide them. He asks the Padawans if they are ready to complete the Trial of the Temple and they say yes. Since time of the essence, he tells them to go while AD-3 warns them to be careful.
The Padawans climb the Summit Scramble, which leads to the Galaxy Gobe where they need to work together to match the correct color combination of the flashing orbs on the control panel. Sage and Raphael work together to match the colors of the Galaxy Globe. They then take the slides down into the Garbage Masher which leads to two separate chambers with glyph triangles. There, they have to work together to match glyph triangles with the correct sequence to unlock the doors.
Raphael asks Sage for guidance. Sage guides Raphael with the various objects. In a follow-up video, Sage and Raphael recount their difficult with matching the various shapes in the glyph triangles chamber. While Team Blue work to match the objects, the dark side voice plays on their fears of running out of time and urges them to connect with the dark side to escape. He tells Sage to press the button and skip the challenge. Sage guides Raphael, who manages to match the triangles much to the dismay of the dark side voice.
The two Padawans complete the Glyph Triangles trial, earning the praise of Master Beq for overcoming the dark side. They move into the Power Core chamber, where they have to deal with the Slide Switch. This challenge involves standing at opposite sides of the table and sliding tiles to their matching color positions in order to open the door.
Sage and Raphael work together to match the colored tiles. After several attempts, they unlock the door and climb the Frigid Ridge. After scaling the Frigid Ridge, the two Padawans enter the Bridge of Balance, which involves them standing on discs to light the path across. Sage goes first and illuminates the bridge for Raphael to cross.
Jedi Knighthood[edit | edit source]
After crossing the bridge, the two Padawans slide down the slide and use the holocrons to retrieve the kyber crystals from a table. The Padawans then leave the Temple and meet Master Beq, AD-3 and LX-R5 at the doorway. AD-3 congratulates the droids while Master Beq praises their teamwork and determination. He tells them to place their crystals inside the hilt and the hilts in the shrine.
AD-3 hands them the Jedi robes while admitting that she covets the robes but acknowledges that they wouldn’t be her style. LX-R5 beeps, prompting AD-3 to remark that he is trying to act like the fashionista. Master Beq tells the Padawns to ignite their sabers and to take it from the shrine. Both Sage and Raphael wield blue lightsabers.
Master Beq knights them as Jedi Knights by the rite of the Jedi Council and the will of the Force. The voice of Yoda addresses Sage and Raphael, telling them that they are now Jedi Knights who are strong with the Force and keepers of the peace and justice.
In a follow-up video, Sage says that her experience was really cool and says that it was really fun once her adrenaline was rushing. Raphael adds that it was amazing and advises future Padawans to give it their best. Master Beq and AD-3 wishes Jedi Knights Sage and Raphael may the Force be with them.
