Opening crawlEdit

The Battle of Coruscant
Six months have passed since Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma joined forces, as they now draw together their plans to bring back the Sith Golden Age.

Exar Kun has spread his insidious teachings at the Jedi learning center on Ossus, as if he is some sort of prophet – and young and impatient Jedi students have begun listening to him, including Crado and Oss Wilum. Kun’s real reason for coming to Ossus, though, is to secure a knowledge repository sealed in the great library: a Sith Holocron! But in stealing the Sith Holocron, Exar Kun kills the Jedi Master Odan-Urr, who tries to stop him.

Ulic Qel-Droma has taken on the military prong of the overall strategy. After a fearsome and dangerous duel, he gains the loyalty of a ferocious warrior race, led by their masked leader, Mandalore. In a lightning raid, Ulic also pounces on one of the Republic’s great shipyards at Foerost, securing a space fleet for himself.

Despite Exar Kun’s admonition, Ulic brashly plans to use his new military might for a direct strike on Coruscant, the center of the Republic government. He sees this as a way for a quick and decisive victory with a minimum of bloodshed. Still reeling from his previous surprise strikes, the Republic does not even know the identity of its new enemy...

Plot summaryEdit

Exar Kun, along with his new Jedi followers, travel to Yavin 4, where Kun releases the Sith holocron he took from Odan-Urr. The holocron fills the followers with knowledge of the Sith. Meanwhile, Ulic Qel-Droma and Aleema Keto, accompanied by Mandalore the Indomitable and his Mandalorian warriors, invade the Republic capital of Coruscant. Not before long, a small group of Jedi, including Cay Qel-Droma, brother of Ulic, arrive and imprison Ulic in a wall of light.
