Official description[]

Ahsoka joins Anakin on a mission planned for just he and Padmé. Anakin, upset at the intrusion, sets a quicker flight path that puts them in the path of a Separatist blockade. The three must put differences aside to get past the blockade.

Plot summary[]

On Coruscant, Senator Padmé Amidala and her entourage greet Anakin Skywalker as he exits a T-6 shuttle. Padmé thanks Anakin for joining her on this mission. After Amidala's entourage leave, Anakin whispers that she has no idea what he had to go through to get this mission. Padmé looks forward to spending some time with her husband alone. However, they are interrupted by Skywalker's Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who apologizes for her lateness and tells Anakin that Master Obi-Wan Kenobi sent her to help with the mission. Anakin is uncomfortable, but Padmé tells Tano that she is welcome.

The T-6 shuttle departs Coruscant and jumps into hyperspace. While traveling through hyperspace, Tano notices that Anakin has changed the flight path. He claims that he is in a hurry. Tano warns him too late they they can't go this way since a Separatist fleet has been spotted in this sector. The shuttle exits hyperspace in the midst of a fleet of Munificent-class star frigates. Padmé and Tano go to man the guns while Skywalker flies the ship through the enemy fleet. Tano says she likes Padmé, and Anakin says he does as well.

Skywalker flies the T-6 shuttle past a Munificent star frigate while Padmé and Tano operate the guns. The T-6 shuttle is almost through the fleet but Padmé is struck by a cannon blast. Anakin cradles Amidala and reassures her that he has gotten her. Padmé thanks her husband. Tano flies the ship past the Separatist fleet as a smiling Skywalker and Amidala watch. Tano then takes the ship into hyperspace. At their urban destination, the T-6 shuttle lands on a sky pad. Skywalker thanks Tano for coming while Padmé tells Tano that she and Skywalker made a good team. Tano adds that Padmé and Skywalker also make a good team. Padmé thanks Tano.
