Opening crawlEdit

Forces in Collision
During the chaos of a civil war in the Sith Empire, Republic captive Jori Daragon sees a chance to steal her ship, ''Starbreaker 12'', and flee the stronghold of Naga Sadow, the Dark Lord of the Sith. Only the navicomputer on ''Starbreaker 12'' holds the coordinates for her to get home, to safety – even if it means she must leave her beloved brother, Gav, behind in Sadow’s clutches.

What Jori doesn’t know, however, is that Naga Sadow has himself engineered the crisis so that she will rush back to the rich star systems of the fabled Republic. With a tracking device hidden on her ship, he can lead the military might of the Sith Empire on a sweeping conquest. Sadow has intentionally kept Gav, training the young man as his protégé. When the ship of Sadow’s defeated rival, Ludo Kressh, appears over the fortress world, broadcasting a message and demanding to be heard, the Dark Lord of the Sith tricks Gav into firing a preemptive strike that blows Ludo’s ship out of the skies. Now no one will challenge Sadow’s ambitions, and the way is clear for him to take the Republic as his own...

Meanwhile, Jori survives the rigorous flight across the galaxy, arriving back at Koros Major, capital of Empress Teta’s newly unified seven worlds. She bears her message of grave import, broadcasting an emergency on all channels – but Jori stumbles headlong into her own tarnished reputation. She and Gave have left under bad circumstances, skipping out on large debts and obligations, fleeing the law. No one will listen to Jori or her urgent warning. She has cried wolf too many times in the past. Instead, under the weight of numerous warrants for her arrest, Jori is taken into custody, her ship impounded. As her accounts of the legendary Sith Empire fall on deaf ears, Jori is dragged off to trial...

Publisher's summaryEdit

Jori Daragon is on trial for offenses against Empress Teta's government. But far from being a lawbreaker, Jori is trying to reach the Empress, to warn her of the dark plans of the Sith Empire. If she is found guilty, she will be confined to a colony planet. And then nothing will stand between the Empress and the Sith.

Plot summaryEdit

On Koros Major, Jori Daragon is sentenced to work on the colony world of Ronika. She is transported there, but is soon able to escape by commandeering an ore shuttle. She flies it back to Empress Teta's palace in Cinnagar, and informs the Empress of the imminent Sith invasion. Odan-Urr confirms the similarity between Jori's claim and his vision, and Teta begins rallying her forces in preparation for the upcoming war.

High above Khar Shian, Naga Sadow appoints Gav Daragon as commander of the Koros Major invasion fleet, as the Dark Lord's incredible mass of ships heads into hyperspace towards the Republic.
