Opening crawlEdit

The Trial of Ulic Qel-Droma
Exar Kun has lured a group of other Jedi –
including his former training partner, Crado,
and Master Thon’s apprentice, Oss Wilum
– who are curious to see Kun’s much-touted
new knowledge. He takes them to his
secret hideout on Yavin Four, where he
shows them the forbidden Sith Holocron.
Claiming he is about to remove the taint of the
dark side, Kun smashes the Holocron as the
Jedi gather around – but the shards fly
outward as if with minds of their own,
containing the residue of Sith sorcerers from
a forgotten age. The shards strike the unwitting
Jedi and are absorbed in a whirlwind of images
from the Sith Golden Age. Kun tells his
“possessed” converts that the other Jedi will
resist, but together they will show the Republic
never to underestimate the power of the Sith!

Meanwhile, eager for a decisive military victory,
Ulic Qel-Droma decides to strike Coruscant, the
capital world itself! With his self-centered lover,
Aleema, and his masked general, Mandalore,
Ulic launches the assault. What he does not
know, however, is that a group of Jedi Knights –
ncluding his brother, Cay, and his friend, Nomi
Sunrider, along with Master Vodo-Siosk Baas –
have come to Coruscant to stop him. Ulic,
unknowing, goes forward with a small force to
certain capture, while Aleema abandons him and
grabs the position of power for herself. She
orders a reluctant Mandalore to retreat, claiming
that Ulic has been killed.

In the command center, Ulic finds himself without
allies and unable to defeat the Jedi Knights. A
prisoner, he is hauled off by the leader of the
Republic Senate, who vows to bring Ulic to trial
immediately, and execute him as a traitor!

Plot summaryEdit

With Ulic Qel-Droma captured by the Galactic Republic, Mandalore the Indomitable asks Exar Kun for help in rescuing Ulic. Kun and Mandalore travel to Coruscant, where Kun fights against his old Jedi Master, Vodo-Siosk Baas. After defeating and killing Baas, Kun and Mandalore rescue Ulic and the three leave.
