after receiving such ill tidings from her master, Umble rushes to the highest tower of her castle to her daughter Maldini who is the fruit of her passions with Luke Skywalker. Upon entering the chamber where the five year old practices saber techniques with a training droid outfitted with a sith holo-cron, the young girl bows before her mother in fear.

Maldini: (bowing) what is thy bidding, mother?

Umble Zarr: (quickly pulling her from the ground) our time together quickly comes to end!

Maldini: (standing scared) how can that be? You just barely entered my life.

Umble Zarr: (slapping the child) do not feel love or pity for those whom hate you child. You will live to destroy this galaxy! Promise me this!

Maldini: (glaring) yes mother.

Umble Zarr: I will soon be dead, take this holo-cron it contains your purpose. Continue your training while you travel the galaxy aboard the attack cruiser Iíve had built for you, it has a droid crew so you wonít be distracted from your studies.

Maldini: (glaring) where do I go from there?

Umble Zarr: journey to the gypsy moon of Nefta, there you will meet my killer. He wouldnít pass up your allegiance, learn what you can from him. But donít allow him to interfere with your purpose!

Maldini: (glaring) yes mother.

The young Sith Mistress lifts off of Goígek within her new attack cruiser, Umble Zarr watches from her massive castle window as the vessel leaves the atmosphere and her evil mother. Montagra leaves the castle with Space Raider commodores all of which are dressed in space suits.

Aboard the Jedi escort, a trimmer in the force cuts Lukeís meditation short.

Luke: how can that be?

Jacen: what is it uncle?

Luke: I feel as if the force is attempting to tell me that two beings directly connected to me are in existence, but their auras are vanishing from my insight just as quickly as Iíve sensed them. But thatís impossible, my son is deadÖ.

Jacen: Iím sorry.

Luke: dead, never to achieve his destiny.

Chi-Ro: may I take this opportunity master skywalker to request your tutelage in my master hood of the Jedi arts.

Luke: I accept chi-ro, but must curse you for interrupting my connection toÖnothing its ok. I accept. If we survive.

Chi-Ro: thank you master Skywalker.

Rahem bows and leaves the cabin of the escort, Luke and jacen continue mediating. The Jedi escort and the millennium falcon as followed by a legion of v-wing fighterís blast out of hyperspace, they run head long into a junk blockade. The Jedi escort speeds past as the v-wings as led by the falcon engage the junk fleet blockade. the escort charges past the blockade to only get shot down by the commanding barge and pulled down into the atmosphere of the planet by Umble Zarr. As the vessel plummets towards the rocky toxic waste filled surface, Luke is teleported out of the ship by umble zarr into an awaiting empty torture device.
A massive compound unguarded by any turrets or canons. Within the castle, Umble gloats over Luke.

Umble Zarr: at last I have you all for my own.

Luke: Iíve come to kill you umble! Nothing more than that.

Umble Zarr: a pity we could have restructured the galaxy together, set everyone in their places. Obtain the power for which no one can dream. Together we could take the void apart and form new worlds in which to gaze upon.

Luke: you canít give back youíve taken from me.

Umble Zarr: This is the torture of a Teras Kasi whom wants you all for herself.

Luke: (grimacing in pain) id that supposed to make it more painful and meaningful than a little dark-force lightning from the emperor.
To demonstrate she uses the force to quarter him and electrocute him with Teras Kasi bolts of defense. Upon completing this show of power, Luke uses the force to break free of the device and back flips into the air igniting his saber hilt before he lands locking swords with umble.

Luke: youíve stolen from meÖyouíve taken the futureís hopeÖ.youíve awoken my Dark Side!

Umble Zarr: this is not the time to refuse me again, our daughter Maldini shall triumph over the force! There is no greater enemy, it uses me as well as you in this game it plays against time.

Luke gives in and expels force lighting countering her attack, the two start a mighty force power struggle while lightsaber dueling.

The republic fleet arrives, they immediately engage the space raider armada that is practically camouflaged in space garbage. The falcon races towards the battleís main problem: the command barge a massive misshapen mass of canons firing randomly at every vessel.


Han and Jaina pilot the millennium falcon with remnants of the relief effort en toe to Korriban in hopes of rescuing the missing transport crew. While they make their check of calculations before coming out of light speed, the two discuss the clone.

Jaina: how can we accept him or her after sheís kept herself away from us to raise him again, canít you see the steps towards the dark side sheís taken?

Han: Iím more than aware of the transgressions of your mother and uncle. But you forget Jaina I have no force flowing thru me. I can only love your mother for what I see in her, and if this is what she has to have around her to re-enter our lives. Than I accept him as Anakin, my son.

Jaina: once the others hear of this, there will be horrendous charges to be answered upon for these crimes against the ways of the Jedi.

Han: I thought you thru down that sword long ago to purse your career as a member of rogue squadron?

Jaina: yes I did father, but I still maintain the practices of a Jedi in my spare time.

Han: if we are to reform this family Jaina, I expect you to be there with us.

Jaina: I canít promise Iíll always be there, but I will do this for you father. Hopefully someday Iíll be able to forgive mom for this deception.

Han: well you better plan on that, Iím at least twenty years older than your mother, I wonít be around forever.

Jaina: yes you will. Dodging in and out of space lanes wearing bottle-lens glasses complaining about how slow these kids fly nowadays.

Han: maybe I should go out and get myself killed in battle before that happens.

Han pulls the drive clutches backward bringing the ship out of hyperspace within a safe distance from Korriban, the fleet does the same. The ships speed past Korribanís seven moons only to find the massing armada of Space Raider Junk Barges awaiting them, immediately rogue squadron engages the massive junk vessels.

Jaina: I should be out there with them!

After making their way out of the Caves of the Korriban, the group of survivors break into argument over the actions of Umble Zarr.

Cas-Lo: (setting down Gigin-Taue and Zeb-Ska) it is now clear that Umble was the murderer of Yap-En, the mysterious master of Montagra, and the reason for our being stranded here. But what of this prophesy is known to you master Skywalker?

Luke: (catching breath) montagra claimed when we ran into him in wild space a year ago, that he had stumbled across a sith prophesy capable of destroying the galaxy, the force and bestowing upon its practitioner ultimate power.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) any ideas about what is needed to enact this atrocity?

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) this is not my lifeÖ. how could she after allÖ. Iíve done toÖ. appeaseÖ. her,

Luke: (comforting the master) Itís not your fault master Soear, donít think about it right now. Try and project yourself onto your power, remember your ways.

Gigin-Taue: (turning white) IÖdo. Not wish toÖlinger.

Cas-Lo: you have too much knowledge to let it die with your body, project yourself please master Soear.

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) masterÖ. of whatÖ. leading you all down Öa clouded path intoÖthe web ofÖmyÖmy. I have no pearls of wisdom to bestow upon theÖ

Cas-Lo: (holding Zeb-Ska) please for your sonís sake, so he may hear your words when he reaches manhood.

Gigin-Taue: (reaching for zeb-ska) masterÖvont leave my prescience, LukeÖwill you raise my sonÖmake sure he doesnítÖ. become like hisÖmotherÖ

Luke: (holding zeb-ska) I canít be afforded this opportunity, if only you knew the truth about umble and I. You wouldnít be giving me your son.

Gigin-Taue: (dieing) I haveÖsomeÖidea of what sheÖlonged forÖ. but what ofÖthe pastÖit is. Clear that she meant to saveÖyouÖnot I... that she lov..ed.

Gigin-Taue Soear dies and does not vanish. But remains a broken corpse. Mara stands behind Luke and Zeb-Ska cradling Ben having heard the entire conversation. Cas-Lo Vont frowns in disgust and Luke looks down in shame.

Chi-Ro, Threepio and Putag start to build a fire, Mara walks away from the makeshift camp carrying Ben with Luke trailing behind her.
Cas-Lo covers Gigin-Taueís body with his robe and mediates beside his dead body as the sun starts to go down.

Within the sith temples, montagra attempts to copy the entire prophecy from the walls onto an empty holo-cron.
Umble Zarr suddenly joins the beast, montagra ignites his Saber hilt. Zarr ignites hers as well. The two lock swords.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) this prophecy is my master! Back Jedi wench!

Umble Zarr: (speaking Ecado) have you ever seen master? Youíve only ever heard the voice dictating what you where to do.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) How can you be the voice?

Umble Zarr: (speaking Ecado) you first heard my commands on Haducu after Luke abandoned you as he had done the same to me. Now finish copying the prophecy, there is vengeance to be taken.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) yes, I finish in fear of pain.

They disengage their sabers, montagra finishes copying the prophecy the two exit the sith temples as the sunsets.
As night falls on Korriban, Mara confronts Luke after sensing the truth of his relationship with Umble Zarr.

Mara: (cradling Ben) how could you carry on this faÁade for so long, did you not think something would come of your clouding of the past and truth?

Luke: please forgive me Mara, this all happened long before we where married. It was during my last days of teaching at the academy.

Mara: (cradling Ben) you cannot be forgiven. She apparently must have meant something to you, but how could you pretend nothing happened between you, how could you carry on like that on Proloxis Four?

Luke: (looking the other way) please forgive me, I love you. I feel nothing for her and never did. She seduced me at my weakest and won out over better judgment, please do not hate me!

Mara: (setting Ben down and storming out the tent) I will never trust you again!

Luke: (running after her) no Mara! Please listen to me. This cannot be the end of us.

Mara runs away from the camp in tears, Luke follows but is too slow and only watch as Umble Zarr strikes down Mara Jade-Skywalker whom it would appear was cradling Ben in her arms. Zarr floats away to a junk barge overhead. Luke falls to his knees sobbing over Maraís ashes for she was incinerated.

Luke: (on his knees) noooo!

During the may-lay of arguments, montagra sneaks into Maraís tent and abducts Ben Skywalker whom is thought to be dead. Umble Zarr, Montagra depart the planet with Ben and the entire prophesy copied.

After the signal is given, the space raider fleet departs. Allowing the falcon to pick up the survivors whom are fighting off sith mummies once again as they run for the extended ramp.

The group of Jediís jump onto the ramp, Cas-Lo uses the force to pull Threepio and Gigin-Taueís body aboard. The republic fleet and the falcon make the jump to light speed. aboard the freighter, acting as new council leader Cas-Lo Vont inquiries on the broken rules of Luke upon being introduced to the clone of Anakin Solo.

Cas-Lo: this is blasphemy! Work of the dark side. How could you do this?

Luke: (resting head in palms while sitting at holo-chess table) I assisted my sister in channeling the spirit of her dead son into an identical clone body, I clouded this fact and my past romantic involvement with Umble Zarr from the rest of you.

Cas-Lo: what was the extent of your involvement with zarr? How far did it go and who was the instigator?

Luke: Umble and I met sometime before the Yuuzhan Vong invashion, she was a sudden addition to the academyís roster. A complete and total over achiever looking for complements at every corner, answering every question as if reading my mind.  She approached me at random in the beginning, from then on her skill at keeping tabs on me become a constant annoyance. I thought it was just a petty crush at first, but once I gave into her seduction it was clear she was obsessive on keeping me in her clutches and pushing me to her satisfaction. Desire was my crime.

Cas-Lo: no. treachery and blasphemous deeds are your crimes; you will answer for them all Luke. No matter what losses youíve endured, youíve broken the laws you set upon us. Sentry I require a pair of energy manacles, I place master Skywalker under arrest.

Republic Sentry: (reluctantly) yes sir.

Leia: I will not stand for this!, my brother personally restarted this order and saved the galaxy from the emperor.

Cas-Lo: you may defend him if wish during his trial, but I will not hear his many achievements right now. And ambassador youíre not exactly innocent in this matter either, so Iíd mind my tongue.

Leia: you will not succeed in this venture master vont!

Luke: (standing up) I accept the charges and deny the right to be defended in a court of my peers the council under master vontís leadership will know what to do with me! That will be enough leia.

Leia: (dumbfounded) are you sure?

Luke: (sitting) yes. Iím guilty and I deserve whatever punishment they think best suits me.

Cas-Lo: (in astonishment) you have redeemed yourself in my eyes master Luke, but I will remain stern on the matter of your trail. Sentry could you confine him to one of the engine rooms and give me his saber hilt.

Master Skywalker is taken away from the holo-chess table by a four republic sentries, Cas-Lo remains with Leia and her sons.

Cas-Lo: I had heard of the legendary strength of Anakin Solo, but being in his prescience is amazing.

Jacen: yes master vont, he is powerful. I have appointed him my apprentice in hopes of making sure he doesnít become the same kind of arrogant person he was before.

Cas-Lo: please jacen youíre still only a knight, master soear didnít finish you or chi-roís trial to master hood. Neither of you are fit to train anyone yet.

Jacen: Iím training my brother no matter what master vont. Besides Iíve reminded him of most of his skills, he catches on quickly.

Cas-Lo: I will allow it, due to your expertise. If it where chi-ro the answer would be no.

Leia: Iím ready to return him to the galaxy yet, he still has yet to develop his old personality.

Jacen: if you continue to covet him this much, the dark sideíll encumber you. Youíre already walking a fine line towards it.

Leia: it will be his decision. Anakin do you wish to leave me and become a Jedi knight again.

Anakin: I remember much of my lifestyle involving the use of the force, my retraining would be short. You could move to coruscant and we could keep in contact with everyone.

Cas-Lo: it is possible the temple is nearly rebuilt.

Leia: the senate has a long ways to go though, I donít know if weíll be able to put up with the continuing reconstruction noise. But if this is your wish Anakin, Iíll follow you in hopes the rest our family come along as well.

Anakin: then itís settled.  Iím more than capable to do battle if itís needed.
On the surface of a large planet that glows toxic green from space called GoíGek, Umble Zarr keeps a castle where she confers with Space Raider commodores whom argue their fears of Proloxian and Republic attacks.

Commodore Grug: what of the Jedi and the republic? There sure to avenge the proloxians and who ever else has suffered due to this atrocity.

Umble Zarr: I can assure you we need not worry about retribution from the proloxis system. The planet, the kingdoms all lie in ruins as we speak. if all goes according to plan, we will soon have a man within in my grasp capable of reforming the galaxy to his liking. A man who if pushed in the right direction would have enough power to topple the republic. And with him and me in command of this galaxy, there would be no need for the stumbling Jedi. A new order shall be erected in the place of this fragile collective of planetary systems, my love and I will have the Overlords of the Teras Mundri beg for mercy at our heels.

Commodore Grug: and where would we figure in this new order?

Umble Zarr: where ever you think best suits you. Now leave me, deploy your fleet.

The commodore exits with his captains, Umble peers out the window of her massive castle. Montagra playfully juggles Ben Skywalker between his feet and tail  only to be suddenly stopped with a gust of force energy by insect-like Teras Kasi master Zettíalk, who takes the child by spinning around the infant fast enough to form an energy ball of protection around him.

Zettíalk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) your plans are folly and always have been umble!

Umble Zarr: (igniting saber) I need that child for leverage!

Zettíalk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) ever since you where a child youíve endangered me to the overlords, how dare you attempt to make their secret wars known to the galaxy! my fight for survival is also endangered with this foolish plot hatched in the pursuit of desire!

Umble Zarr: (swinging saber) that boy has power like his father, whatever you mold him into would be even more dangerous to you than I. But his sister will be quite the sith well before heís ready to combat her.

Zettíalk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) your days are numbered Umble! Your arrogance has outweighed your senses as predicted. You know nothing of my other agent amongst the Jedi!

Umble Zarr: (swinging saber) impossible! How could you undermine my abilities with such disrespect!

Zettíalk: (in a thousand hissing whispers) improbable not impossible! Iíve instructed this agent to dispose of you and take over the tutelage of your offspring with Skywalker he will meet her on Nefta! Your service to me turned ill long ago. My greatest student, my greatest disappointment. May you not suffer me anymore.

Umble Zarr: (disengaging saber) farewell, you had better hope your double agent succeeds.

Umble Zarr bows before her master as it leaves the planet with Ben Skywalker.

Aboard the Millennium Falcon, Luke convinces Cas-Lo, Jacen, Putag, Chi-Ro and Anakin that they must deal with umble zarr before the council convenes.

Luke: we must deal with umble zarr before she can regroup her armies and march upon the worlds of the galaxy.

Jacen: together I believe we can conquer her.

Cas-Lo: this is suicide jacen, you saw the corpse of Yap-En her power is too great.

Luke: I will face umble, alone.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) arrogance and ignorance walk hand in hand master.

Chi-Ro: Are you sure master Skywalker, we all saw the ease at which she dispensed the temple guard.

Luke: it was my force potential that drove her to save gigin-taue and I from that beast. I know I can fight her, my survival is not of any concern to me.

Jacen: you mustnít act out in vengeance uncle.

Cas-Lo: yes you have Zeb-Ska to raise upon gigin-taueís last wishes.

Luke: weíll see.

Jaina enters the engine sector.

Jaina: the scout ships have reached the location  the junk barges went directly after Korriban. Itís a toxic planet in wild space and it appears to be heavily guarded, rogue squadron is speeding to meet us there.

Anakin: I will not waste my self in battle on the planetís surface I choose to remain aboard this ship brother.

Jacen: I understand, donít worry Iíll be back to complete your training.

Jaina: well even if you didnít make it back Iím sure uncle Luke and mom would cook up a clone to replace you in our hearts.

Anakin: jaina, I am your brother. Mind body and spirit. You must accept me.

Jaina: I accept you under the circumstances that would continue my relationship with our mother. But only to those terms clone!

Anakin: I will prove myself to you sister. Itís just a matter of time.

Jaina exits the engines as the Jedi start to re-enter the galley of the ship.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) filled with worry for her future, do not worry Anakin she accept you in time.

Anakin: I hope so.

Cas-Lo: the five of us will depart this vessel, I would not like to endanger the rest of Jacen and Lukeís family. Are we agreed.

Jacen: of course master vont.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) we must mediate, before battle it was gigin-taueís way.

Chi-Ro: Iíll be right there, Iím still not quite over his passing.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) understandable.

The five Jedi leave the engine room for the docking ring between the falcon and the republic high liner containing a standard Jedi escort vessel.


Aboard the Millennium Falcon, General Solo attempts to contact his estranged wife Leia who has settled back into the life of an ambassador for the New Galactic Republic. 

Han: leia come in!

Leia: (thru intercom) well howís it going stranger?

Han: not so good, proloxis four was evacuated. Weíve come to the first refuel station and found the transport vessel carrying Lukeís family and the royal procession is missing.

Leia: (thru intercom) Missing?

Jacen: yes mom, gone.

Han: it would appear their ship fell out of light speed somewhere between Cinnagar and Koros Minor.

Jacen: the sith home world of old is the only planet where they could have landed.

Han: so were going to need a search party.

Leia: (thru intercom) I donít know if I can arrange that on this short of notice. But Iíll meet you guys at the refuel station with whatever I can manage, plus thereís someone Iíve been keeping to myself for far too long. Who can more than help us in this situation?

Han: what? Could you please explain this?

Leia: (thru intercom) hopefully he can help you as heís helped me.

Leiaís transmission fades away.

Jacen: I donít know, but she sounds like sheís finally gotten over Anakinís death.

Han: that would really help things between us.

The two family members sit dumbfounded as the ships continue to refuel and the remaining republic troops are removed from the transport vessel for the formation of a search party. The refuge vessels go back into light speed.

While Journeying through the sith temple, the group stops to drink water and montagra becomes an increasing threat to Mara and Ben.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) strong boy, very stronger than mommy and daddy.

Mara: (holding Ben closer) and what would you know of the matter.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) just something that comes and goes thru me as master pushes me towards its goal. A ringing in my ears that turns into visions of the future, constant change of course. But the boy grows into strongÖforce sensitive.

Mara: (holding Ben closer) your intellect is too simple to know such things. It always has been.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) Doubt me and doubt the path that we walk, were on the steps towards your doom.

Luke: (striking montagra) shut up! Stop tempting me towards the dark side!

Montagra: (speaking ecado) I only speak the truth!

Mara: (holding Ben closer) Luke stop it, I started talking to him, and itís not his fault.

Luke: (kicking montagra in the stomach) is this where you start the end of the galaxy beast! Tell me before you die!

Montagra: (speaking ecado) just the beginning! There is much to be done and sacrificed!

Luke ignites his lightsaber and goes to kill montagra, but is stopped by Gigin-Taue and Chi-Ro who physically pull him back from the beast.  In the may lay montagra breaks the chains and regains his saber hilt via the force from chi-roís belt. The beast ignites the weapon while running into the catacombs reciting a mantra.

Montagra: (speaking sith)

Upon finishing the recital all mummified sith lords of past are brought to life by their roaming sprits which are channeled back into the mummies with pure force energy igniting their sabers. The mummies advance upon the surrounded Jedi whom begin running and fighting millions of the undead.

Cas-Lo: (defending with saber) this is impossible!

Mara: (holding Ben in one arm and fighting with the other) no, just never been done before!

Saba Sebatyne: (force pushing mummies and defending with saber) we must stay together!

Luke: (slashing mummies) Mara stay with me!

Putag: (speaking ewokese and fighting with saber) montagra will pay for this!

Cas-Lo: (force crumbling a mummy) master soear watch out!

Gigin-Taue: (defending umble zarr) thank you master vont, my dear donít you carry a saber hilt.

Umble Zarr: (holding zeb-ska) how am I supposed to defend myself and carry this child!

Gigin-Taue: (defending umble zarr) Mrs. Skywalker seems to be doing a good job of it!

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber as she takes out six mummies) thereís too many of them!

Putag: (speaking ewokese and fighting with saber) Iíve got your back!

Saba Sebatyne: (force pushing mummies) many they are, but not indestructible!

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) master Sebatyne no!

Luke: (striking mummies) we must keep going!

At that moment four sith mummyís quarter Master Sebatyne, Saba falls to pieces as the fleeing Jedi continue their way down the massive hallway while fighting off numerous sith mummies as they run.

Amongst the stars Han and leia embrace for the first time since Anakinís death, a clone of Anakin Solo adorned in an advanced space suit stands before the broken family unsure of what to think of such open shows of affection.
While his sister Jaina is too emotionally bankrupt to become attached to this clone and lets everyone know it, troops and droids are left dumb founded, as they arenít related to the broken family. Her twin brother Jacen feels the exact opposite and is brought to tears at the sight of his dead younger brother standing before him.

Han: oh leia, Iíve missed you.

Leia: Han, itís ok. Iíve come to terms with his death and given him new life with the help of Luke.
Han: what do you mean new life?

Leia: within this clone of our son resides his sprit.

Han: Isnít this usage of the dark side, how could you let this clone come between us leia.

Jaina: how is this possible?

Leia: Anakin Solo lives again. Greedily Iíve kept him to myself for all these years.

Jacen: so this is what uncle Luke was clouding from the others.

Jaina:(standing away from both the clone and her mother) and why do you think were going to accept him.

Leia: Aside from my ambassador duties Iíve been re-raising our son, with growth acceleration heís almost to the age at which he was taken from us.

Jacen: (Rushing to the clone) Iíve longed to see you again little brother and Iím sorry to report the death of your first love Tahiri.

Anakin: I have no memories of this previous life led by Anakin Solo, only his abilities.

Jacen: how can that be?

Han: you said Luke channeled the sprit into him, then why does he not remember his life?

Leia: because Anakin did not chose or know how to retain his identity in death, his sprit does not know its past or personality. Luke has suggested that bits and pieces will return in time.

Jacen: heís connection to the force is intact, maybe greater than before.

Jaina: uncle Luke has gone too far, this betrays all trust he may have garnered in the eyes of his knights.

Han: Jaina, if this helps your mother I suggest we allow it.

Jaina: mother, just the act of coveting Anakin this much is a turn to the dark side!

Leia: canít you just accept the fact that Iím attempting to bring us back together, like the old days?

Jaina: those days are ended, you cannot bring them back. And besides I have my own life to live, we all do.

Anakin: I do not understand your anger, momÖ.

Jaina: (storming out of the room) I will not accept this clone as my brother. Thereís no bringing him back!

Han: do you think cloning chewie would chill her out?

Leia: oh Han, youíre too much.

R2-D2 follows Jaina Solo to her star fighter as her parents embrace once more; Jacen begins to instruct the clone of his brother in the ways of the Jedi. 

Back in the caves of Korriban, our heroís run up a massive flight of stairs with thousands of Sith Mummies following them into a massive chamber. Upon entering it the mummies retreat and go around the chamber.
Gigin-Taue shouts curses as the others catch their breath and tend to wounds from the sharp rocks protruding out of the temple walls.

Gigin-Taue: (holding saber over his head) cowardly sith incarnate!

Unsatisfied with the retreat the Jedi Master lets out a Proloxian battle cry awakening a greater evil, the temple guard a massive Gorax called Banaí Ka.
The mighty beast stumbles to its feet and ignites itís two hundred foot tall LightSaber, the Jedi engage their saber hilts and stand ready as the beast falls back down to its knee under the weight of the behemoth crimson light blade which lights the entire chamber. Umble Zarr and Mara Jade-Skywalker hold their children close while walking back towards the staircase, Acheff-9 throws C-3PO down and extends its ion canons. The droid approaches the Jedi who stand ready for the attack.

Cas-Lo: at least we can now say the proloxian battle cry can wake anybody up.

Gigin-Taue: (engaging saber hilt) cut the chatter vont.

Luke: Putag I thought Goraxís where native to Endor?

Putag: (speaking ewokese) so did I.  Iíve never seen one this big before.

Luke: trust in the force my friends.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) here to assist in destruction.

Chi-Ro: great.

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) itís completely enraged.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) subject is vulnerable in three unprotected locations.

Chi-Ro: (holding saber over head) and those would be?

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) one being the neck, two being the growing, and three being the eyes.

Tenel Ka Dijo: (swirling saber) shouldnít three count as two separate weak points.

Luke: save it for later master dijo.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) if there is a later.

The beast stands up and brings its saber down upon the temple where the Jedi where standing before they took to the air via the force, the droid Acheff-9 fires itís canons at the specific weak points repeatdly enraging the beast all the more. The Jedi defend them selves against the massive light blade as it strikes the temple walls randomly, they fly about stabbing BanaíKa with what to it would be pin pricks. Master Dijo miscalculates one levitation and is struck with the massive light blade; the Jedi masterís death is signaled by a flicker in the blade and a pile of burned corpse plummeting to the temple floor.

The others attempting to continue stabbing the beast to death are tossed about via the force by banaíka as it swings randomly bringing down massive parts of the temple, one chunk of rubble smashes Acheff-9 as the droid fires at BanaíKaís left eye. The beast lets out a cry of pain, the Jedi attempt to follow Acheff-9ís last effort but BanaíKa swats Chi-Ro, Putag and Cas-Lo back towards the staircase, the three Jedi nearly smash into threepio.

Luke and Gigin-Taue double team the gorax with a last effort but are taken into the beasts hand and thrown violently towards the ground as banaíka goes to strike them with its saber in the other hand, the Jedi speed to the floor of the temple attempting to deviate via the force but are overpowered by banaíkaís will to kill them. The two are almost killed by the impending light blade as a burst of force power is directed at BanaíKa from the staircase. The burst of energy encumbers the beast killing it as the Jedi use the force to land softly, upon landing Mara, Ben, Threepio, Zeb-Ska, Chi-Ro, Putag, and Cas-Lo stand away from Umble Zarr whose hands are still glowing.

Luke runs past Umble Zarr to comfort Mara and Ben, while Gigin-Taue picks up Zeb-Ska and places him on his shoulders he goes to put his arm around Umbleís neck. Sensing the movement whilst glaring at the Skywalkerís, she strikes Gigin-Taue with a distinctive Teras Kasi attack knocking young Zeb-Ska to the ground and Paralyzing Master Soear. Before the shocked group can react to Zarrís bloodthirsty habits, the sith mummies bust into the chamber pouring over the dead gorax in droves, Umble floats to the ceiling as Cas-Lo and Chi-Ro pick up wounded Gigin-Taue, defenseless Zeb-Ska and oblivious Threepio. They make for the tunnel with the rest of the shocked group. The sith mummies chase after the fleeing survivors.


Saba Sebatyne: master soear, master skywalker, master jade, master dijo! Theyíre unconscious. Help.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) we require a medic.

Chi-Ro: master Putag; help me revive them via the force.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) there coming around.

Chi-Ro: master Soear, did you learn anything?

Gigin-Taue: no, what happened.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) were spinning out of control!

Tenel Ka Dijo: where has solo led us?

Luke: (grasping his head) the dark side encumbers this space, it pulls us down to the surfaceÖ
Gigin-Taue: thereís only one place in the galaxy capable of such an actÖ.

Umble Zarr: the graveyard of the sith: Korriban.

Saba Sebatyne: we are too few to survive on the planets surface.

Mara: (rushing to Ben, whoís in tears) I have a bad feeling about this!

Luke: I think we may yet have a chance if we survive the landing.

Cas-Lo: pilot, do you have any control of the ship!

Republic pilot: none strap yourselves in! Itís going to be a rough landing.

Mara: (cradling Ben) perhaps we can guide the ship down to safety.

Chi-Ro: (strapping in) impossible the dark side overpowers this space.

Luke: (assuming seat next to Mara) heís right. Were too weak when compared to the aura of this place.

Gigin-Taue: dearest hold zeb-ska close, we may yet survive this.

The Transport vessel is pulled thru the planets atmosphere at tremendous speeds, the ship breaks thru only to fly straight into the constant orange lightning storms that rattle the fragile tombs and ancient temples of the long ago abandoned planet. The vessel spins out of control as it comes crashing down upon the valley of the sith, a mighty canyon filled with pyramids and temples. The ship touches down upon the rocky surface exploding as it skids down the skeleton ridden landscape, until it smashes to a stop into a mammoth statue of an ancient sith lord. The vessel begins to burst into flames as the refuges of proloxis IV exit quickly with montagra en toe; the ship explodes as Aceff-9 leaps with threepio in his arms.

Cas-Lo: well were here to stay.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) droid secure, vessel destroyed.

C-3PO: no one has ever rescued me like that before.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) itís my program.

Lightening strikes loudly in the distance.

C-3PO: oh dear how horrid!

Mara: (cradling Ben) we canít stay in the open like this, the ghosts will drive us mad in no time.

Saba Sebatyne: How do you know so much of this place Mrs. Skywalker?

Mara: (cradling Ben) I was once in the direct service of the emperor, this was his so-called ďplace of powerĒ.

Gigin-Taue: (holding umble zarr close with one arm) I believe we should take shelter within one of the temples.

Luke: itís probably worse in there than out here.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) the storms are increasing by a margin sixteen percent.

Cas-Lo: one things for sure, were here for a reason. Now will either montagra or master Luke wish to explain it to the rest of us?

Putag: (speaking ewokese) this is not the time master vont!

Umble Zarr: yes, isnít it a bit ironic that while attempting to delve into Montagraís mind weíve been sent here.

Luke: this is the work of the beastís unknown master.

Tenel Ka Dijo: yes I reached its will before we where knocked backwards, it needs something from the surface of this place.

Gigin-Taue: protocol droid; question the beast as to where his master needs us to go!

C-3PO: Oh dear oh dear.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) master requires an inscription of a Prophesy in which supreme power can be bestowed upon its enactment.

C-3PO: (repeating in English) master requires an inscription of a Prophesy in which supreme power can be bestowed upon its enactment.
Mara: (cradling Ben) oh is that all?

Montagra: (speaking ecado) No fire haired woman, your doom awaits in the catacombs!

C-3PO: (repeating in English) No fire haired woman, your doom awaits in the catacombs!
Luke: (igniting saber) enough threats montagra!

Mara: (cradling Ben) Luke! Stop. His words are meaningless.

Chi-Ro: (holding Luke back) his threats are empty, please stay focused master Skywalker.

Gigin-Taue: Luke, we need you.

Luke: (disengaging saber) Iím in control, do not worry.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) we must be going to these catacombs.

Saba Sebatyne: I sense a mass of negative energies coming this way.

Cas-Lo: (taking montagra by the throat) where do we go!

Montagra: (speaking ecado) follow me!

C-3PO: (repeating in English) follow me!

The beast leads the charge of the fleeing Jedi whom ignite their sabers.

Luke: Acheff bring threepio!

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) I copy.

C-3PO: watch your hands, you could break something. And slow down I could fall apart!

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) Iím not programmed to take orders from you.

Montagra: (speaking ecado) we must go to the deepest levels, the oldest of the old. The writings of the first dark siders are required.

Tenel Ka Dijo: Move faster, the energies are closing in all around us!

The group flees into the temples of the sith, lighting the way with their lightsabers, the infants begin to cry out as the sith sprits pursue the bunch howling and screaming curses in ancient tongues.


Luke: threepio can you interrupt Ecado?

C-3PO: why yes master Luke, oh dear what a scurvy creature it is. Iíve never seen one before but oh my.

Montagra: (Cursing in Ecado)

C-3PO: how rude.

Cas-Lo: could we come to the point already droid?

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) master isnít telling what to do next, master is conflicted. Master is stuck in plansÖ. masterís voice is going silent.

C-3PO: master isnít telling what to do next, master is conflicted. Master is stuck in plansÖ. masterís voice is going silent.

Luke: thatís all heís been saying since we encountered him on the barge, I became furious due to his inability to answer who was controlling him.

Gigin-Taue: I understand your dislike of not receiving an answer, but this impatience is unbecoming of a Jedi.

Luke: (shouting) Iím really getting tired of being continually lectured on the rules I set in place and taught you all! Without me youíd all be at the mercy of the emperor. Some of you wouldnít even be here.

Cas-Lo: (waving arms frantically) yes master Luke let your clouding of the truth come loose and spill fourth your allegiance to the dark side and theÖ.

Luke: (force pushing cas-lo to the ground) do not accuse me of such acts!

Mara: (screaming) stop it!

C-3PO: oh dear.

Han: (running to Lukeís side) take it easy Luke youíre flipping out!

Cas-Lo: (swatting blood away) I forgive you, but not your actions.

Luke: (embracing Mara) somethingís pushing me out of control. somethingÖ

Mara: (Maraís gaze falls upon montagra as she embraces Luke) what is it? please tell me Luke.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) your time approaches soonÖ

Luke goes to stomp montagra but is stopped by Jacen and Chi-Ro, as Putag, Saba Sebatyne and Tenel Ka Dijo burst into the chamber as followed by republic troops.

Tenel Ka Dijo: master Soear, we must evacuate the planet!

Gigin-Taue: (springing to his feet) what? The space raiders have fled what danger could there be now?

Tenel Ka Dijo: the storm and the raging rivers are flooding the mainland causing the countryside to fall into the oceans.

Saba Sebatyne: we have two days until the entire countryside is beneath the sea.

Gigin-Taue: I order a complete Evacuation due to the impending devastation of the planet, and wish to have Montagra extradited and imprisoned.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) Iíve already sent the remaining transport vessels to pick up survivors.

Cas-Lo: but what of master skywalkerís use of forbidden practices!

Gigin-Taue: Master Skywalker and I will discuss these issues on the transport. That shall be enough for you master vont. Now rally all inhabitants of this temple.

Cas-Lo: yes master Soear.

The entire countryside of Krushi migrates to the Jedi community of Lexírer, as republic transport vesselís lift off. The landing pad in front of the temple is filled with refugees and transport vessels, the Millennium Falcon is chosen as the vessel to lead the evacuation to the nearest republic base. The Royal Procession boards the last transport vessel, as led by the millennium falcon with Han, Jacen, Lowbacca, Clighal, Corran Horn, Kyle Katarn, and Artoo-Deetoo aboard. 

Luke, Mara, C-3PO and Ben depart the planet aboard the same transport carrying Gigin-Taue Soear, Umble Zarr cradling Zeb-Ska, Cas-Lo Vont, Putag, Chi-Ro Rahem, Tenel Ka Dijo, Saba Sebatyne, and Montagra in chains guarded by twenty Republic Troops with Acheff-9. The vessel lifts off as Gigin-Taue looks upon his Temple for the last time thru the transport ships circular window.
Once in space the entire republic Relief Effort as led by Han Solo blasts into lightspeed leaving the countryside of Krushi to its fate on the once inhabited world of Proloxis IV.Gigin-Taue comes to visit Master Skywalker and family.

Mara: what are you going to do now?

Gigin-Taue: Iím not quite sure; personally Iíve had enough of the proloxis system. And the responsibility of ruling a planet never sounded that appealing to me.

Luke: a Jedi goes where the force leads him.

Gigin-Taue: I think Iím starting understand your little outburst from earlier.

Luke: the farther we get away from the proloxis system the better I feel.

Mara: itís really too bad, lexírer was a great teaching facility.

Gigin-Taue: it could have been better, no need worrying about it. Unless were going to start giving swimming lesions.

Luke: (laughing)

C-3PO: itís nice to see you in a jovial mood again master Luke.

Luke: thanks threepio.

Gigin-Taue: Master Dijo and I have been discussing the matter of Montagraís mental block.

Mara: have you come to a conclusion yet? Or is everything going to remain unknown until we land at the nearest star base.

Tenel Ka Dijo: no master Jade, we propose that the four of us should be strong enough to delve into Montagraís mind and find the answers.

Luke: that much pressure on his simple mind could split it in two.

Gigin-Taue: its worth the risk master Skywalker, that beast holds to keys to whom is responsible for this mess.

Mara: their right, if we donít get a name out of his head. Cas-lo is going to pin this all on you Luke.

Luke: All right, but the moment the beast begins to show signs of mental collapse we must cease our mental connection. Agreed?

Tenel Ka Dijo: Agreed.

Gigin-Taue: Agreed.
Mara: Iím pretty sure he can handle it Luke.

The four Jedi masters make their way back to the area where montagra is being kept. The beast is still in chains and lying on the floor of the vessel, Acheff-9 stands guard with its Turbo Laser Canons extended towards Montagraís head.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) Mrs. Skywalker shouldnít you be seated?

Mara: its ok, were here to interrogate.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) your time approaches soonÖ

Luke: could you shut up?

Tenel Ka Dijo: what did he say?

Luke: nothing, just empty threats. Letís begin.

The four Jedi sit around the creature Indian style, while meditating in unison. Montagra begins to recoil in pain as the mental connection is made. The Jedi delve deep into the simple mind of montagra, they are violently knocked backward by a blast of energy from the mysterious masterís mental hold on montagra. The blast compromises the transport vesselís engines and causes the ship to fall out of hyperspace spinning out of control towards the ancient Sith home world of Korriban.

Cas-Lo: where are we pilot?

Republic pilot: Iím not sure, but were spinning out of control somewhere between Cinnagar and Koros Minor.

Cas-Lo: the Horuset System! Oh no.


Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) then depart this area or be dismantled.

C-3PO: (leaving area) over bearing brute.

Mara: ok heís more than useful.

Luke: is this Chi-ro going to be of any help to us?

Jacen: of course, chi-ro and I have been training for our master hood under Gigin-Taue. But heís a bit sure of himself at times.

Mara:  great, another hot head with a lightsaber.

Luke: letís get going to the escort.

Luke and Mara embrace, Umble Zarr glares in the distance while being held by her husband. Luke hugs his son and places him in the care of his mother and Acheff-9.

Elsewhere, Commodore Doo Haffa and Montagra survey a holographic representation of their invasionís progress.

Commodore Doo Haffa: the fires have concealed our ships so far, but I fear the republic may call upon the Jedi.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (speaking ecado) master, commands us to remain within the plumes.

Translation Droid: (repeating montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: what of the Jedi, doesnít your master wish for us to destroy the temple?

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (speaking ecado) I dare not raise any issue with master.

Translation Droid: (repeating montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: perhaps youíre right, but Iím certain those Jedi will be plotting something.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (taking upward stance) do not force me to do anything rash!

Translation Droid: (repeating montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: Iím risking my fleet on this, if we donít take possession of this planet soon the republic will descend upon us before we can mine the ores and build new ships.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (igniting saber with tail) youíve outlived your usefulness!

Translation Droid: (repeating montagra in English)

The beast flies at the commodore with its feet out and takes hold of his neck with its jaws. While doo haffa goes to draw his laser pistol montagra stabs the commodore in the stomach repeatedly with its lightsaber, while chewing thru his neck. The commodoreís second in command exits the bridge of the barge. The beast is then bombarded by the voice of his master.

Montagra: (choking on neck bones) nooo! Master, he has become too questionful.

Imposing Voice: (coming from all around the beast) Your reactions to these situations have gone according to your witless perception. Stay where you are, do not attempt to move the fleet and dispose of all whom attempt to disobey my command!

Montagra: (spitting out neck tissue) yes master! I obey youÖ

The prescience of the imposing master vanishes, leaving montagra on the floor of the bridge.  The space raider fleet remains within the cover of the raging jungle fires as clouds begin to start rumbling. Lightning begins to strike rapidly, followed by a massive gust of gale force wind; the clouds begin to turn dark grey, as does the sky of Proloxis IV.

Within the Jedi Community of Lexírer: Gigin-Taue Soear, Saba Sebatyne, Putag, Corran Horn, Umble Zarr, Lowbacca, Cas-Lo Vont, Tenel Ka Dijo, Kyle Katarn, Clighal, and Mara Jade-Skywalker concentrate their collective force abilities to bring about a massive rainstorm over the burning countryside of Krushi. The eleven Jedi sit quietly meditating while the world outside is soaked in a massive monsoon like storm that spills rain all over the planet.
The Jedi Escort speeds thru the jungles as the storm engulfs the entire planet. R2-D2 drives the vessel from within a computer console while Luke, Jacen and Chi-Ro concentrate on locating Montagra via the Force.

Jacen: I donít understand how an Ecadogren can cause this much trouble, it just doesnít make any sense weíve overcome so many intelligent adversaries in the past.

Chi-Ro: Grand Admirals leading imperial remnants and the yuuzhan vong all had the same objective: control of the galaxy, were yet to learn what drove these Space Raiders to invashion.

Luke: are you condoning warfare if itís based on the purpose of conquering another civilization or continuing Jacenís observation of montagraís successes where so many others have failed?

Chi-Ro: neither master Skywalker, I just find it hard to believe that the old scrapper factions would venture this far from their outer rim piracy to invading an entire planet devoted to research into the force.

Jacen: this planet has nothing of value to them, and what of montagra? What would motivate a half trained Ecadogren beast to lead a planetary invashion? 

Luke: I agree this entire chain of events benefits neither party.

Chi-Ro: if were to unravel this mystery, we must capture montagra. What can you tell us about the beast master Skywalker? What exactly did you teach it?

Luke: (standing up) for a short time during the Yuuzhan Vongís invashion of the galaxy. Mara and I where stranded on a backwater planet called Haducu, oddly enough the planet was inhabited by a tribe of Ecadogrens. Montagra was the only one with enough courage to confront us, immediately I sensed the force was with him. I slowly befriended the beast, but its training was like pulling teeth from the start. I was never able to fully tame the beast. When our transport arrived we couldnít take him with us, whatever friendship we had formed during our time together was forever shattered. What little I taught montagra wasnít enough for him to cloud the intentions of the space raiders.

Jacen: did anyone else know of your interaction with montagra, beside the transport crew and Mara?

Luke: no, I chose never to speak of him again.

Chi-Ro: just as most teachers do of their abandoned pupils.

Luke: I didnít know you had experience in that area Rahem?

Chi-Ro: Iím sorry if Iíve over stepped my bounds master Skywalker, itís just something Iíve seen happen many times over. Students whom fail their master and are never spoke of again after they depart the temple or the academy; this same action is practiced at both training facilities. Abandonment is a pain that remains inside of us and constantly reminds us that they left us, they didnít want us.

Jacen: you assume montagraís turn to the dark side was caused by his abandonment on Haducu. How could you consider it abandonment if that was his home planet?

Luke: no jacen, I feel chi-ro has discovered a in which to ensnare montagra peacefully.

Chi-Ro: thank you, I have longed for the encouragement of master Skywalker.

Luke: I just hope the beast will take the bait; there is an open-ended possibility that heís too far-gone to react to an extended hand of help.

Jacen: if that fails my bond with nature and creatures could be of use.

Luke: have you ever seen an Ecadogren?

Jacen: no, but I doubt he could be more venomous than a pack of voxyn.

Luke: I never taught any voxyn how to wield a lightsaber.

The Jedi Escort emerges from the jungle and into a vast clearing of the jungle where once stood the city of Orran. The entire clearing is filled with the advancing space raider fleet, which upon taking notice of the escort vessel open fire blindly into the jungle. The gale force winds flare up as the escort takes a hit and speeds into the hull of a junk barge; the vessel tears through the raggedy ship as the Jedi aboard guide the vessel via the force.

The rainstorm violently starts tossing the junk barges around and bringing massive trees down onto the junk barges, the advancing mercenaries are bombarded by a massive mudslide caused by the overflowing rivers of Proloxis IV.

The junk barge with the Jedi escort wrecked into it slowly falls to the jungle floor as The Republic Relief Effort descends upon the downed junk fleet raining laser bolts. Within the junk barge Luke, Jacen, and Chi-Ro sense the prescience of Montagra.

Luke: I knew it was him, be cautious heís a biter.

Chi-Ro: (igniting saber and illuminating the area) great.

Luke: artoo you stay with the ship. Itís safer there.

Jacen: (igniting saber) I think I can handle one Ecadogren uncle Luke.
Montagra: (speaking Ecado) oh really boy!

The beast jumps out from behind a broken command console while igniting his saber, he locks swords with Jacen as he snaps his jaws at Chi-Ro who reacts by jumping backwards a foot.

Luke: (igniting saber) put down the weapon, youíve found me. We can end this together montagra.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) I donít need you! I need to obey the voice.

Luke: (assuming battle stance) voice? What voice? Whoís controlling you?

The three engage Montagra in a dizzying lightsaber duel, force jumping around the creature as it randomly strikes out at them passing the lit saber hilt from its tail to its mouth and its feet until it becomes short of breath, while once again locking swords with Jacen.

Chi-Ro: (assuming battle stance) I think heís lost it.

Jacen: (holding back montagraís blade) easy for you to say.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) master isnít telling what to do next, master is conflicted. Master is stuck in plansÖ. masterís voice is going silent.

Luke: (force pulling montagra by the throat to his grasp) what voice!

Jacen and Chi-Ro step away from the enraged master in astonishment.

Chi-Ro: the force choke is forbidden, thatís a sith move.

Luke: (holding the beast by the throat) I know arenít I the one who forbid its usage!

Montagra: (gagging in Ecado) I surrender the fleet, master has abandoned me like all the others!!

Jacen:(assuming battle stance) put the beast down!

Taking Noticing of his actions, Luke drops the beast and force pulls a cable from the ceiling while wrapping it around montagraís tail, feet and neck. Chi-Ro takes the chewed upon saber hilt from the tail which was grasping it tightly. The three Jedi with montagra being drug by artoo are taken away from the battlefield by a republic transport vessel as the remainder of the space raider fleet flees in the wake of the storm.
The transport vessel returns them to Lexírer where Gigin-Taue is informed of Lukeís transgression towards Montagra and his usage of the forbidden force choke. Luke stands in front of Gigin-Taue whom uneasily sits in his fatherís place Umble Zarr stands near by cradling Zeb-Ska; montagra is shackled to the ground and guarded by Jacen, Chi-Ro, and Kyle Katarn. Cas-Lo Vont paces between Luke and Montagra ranting his case. Han Solo, C-3PO, R2-D2, Mara and Ben stand together well behind Luke.

Cas-Lo: (waving arms frantically) master skywalker is clearly in league with this creature!

Gigin-Taue: (springing to his feet) you have no grounds to start accusing master Skywalker as the one behind this invashion, we have yet to even question the beast!

Luke: montagra cannot speak basic master soear.

Cas-Lo: luckily general solo brought a protocol droid. Can it be summoned?


Umble Zarr: it was nothing more than a little hero worship Mrs. Skywalker, I longed to question the man who had risen to the challenge of Dethroning the Emperor and vanquishing his own father.

Mara: you must be Mrs. Soear, a pleasure.

Umble Zarr: (shaking hands) no, the pleasure is mine. Mara Jade, the woman who once could hear the emperors command from anywhere in the galaxy. Another champion I have longed to question.

Gigin-Taue: hello my dear, where is Zeb-Ska?

Umble Zarr: Asleep, Luke it has been far too long since our last meeting.

Luke: (clearly annoyed) yes umble, it has.

Gigin-Taue: well master Luke, the council will convene within the hour. Umble what are the cooks preparing for our fest tonight.

Master Soear and his wife make their way back towards their chamber as Luke and Mara are left to share an uncomfortable silence.

Mara: (walking away) I wonder how disruptive you let you get.

Luke: (attempting to follow) whatever youíre attempting to accuse Umble and I of is unthinkable and falsely based. I will not be condemned of actions that I did not partake in! Do you understand me Mara.

Mara: (turning around) youíre scaring me Luke. Iíve never seen you like this.

Luke: (stomping past) I donít have time for your acquisitions. I must meditate before the council convenes.

Luke storms off back towards the landing pad where the Jedi escort is landed, Mara is left standing in the middle of the temple completely dumbfounded. Skywalker boards the ship and confines himself within his meditation chamber. Suddenly the spirit of Yoda appears within the chamber.

Luke: master yoda, I thought the distances where too great for obi-wan to communicate with me.

Yoda: too far for obi-wan they have become. But not for me.

Luke: masterÖ

Yoda: come to chat I have not, things you have done that are questionable. Lies that remain hidden from those dear to you, will only awaken more dangers.

Luke: itís too late for you to lecture me, I cannot tell them.

Yoda: the longer you cloud those around you; the harder will it be for them to trust you once more.

Luke: I will not let it be known. Thereís nothing you can do.

Yoda: under its will, the dark side has you. Corrupted you are Luke, redeem yourself you must if any progress is to be made.

Luke: I need no redemption master yoda, I have everything under control.

Yoda: so certain are you? Your attempts to control are blinding the truth. Until you see the truth then useless you are to the forceÖ

The spirit of Yoda disappears while looking down in shame. Luke continues his meditation. On the other side of the planet Han Solo leads the entire Relief Effort in battle against the Space Raiders base of operations in a steep valley, the republic fighters rain laser blasts on the highly defended base which is heavily fortified and guarded by massive junk barges.

Han: jacen, stop only aiming at the turrets take out those troops!

Jacen: (from within turret) Iím not going to murder those mercs dad. Its goes against my training as a Jedi.

Han: forget your training and help me win this battle!

Jacen: (from within turret) I canít concentrate on this with you yelling at me.

Han: All right, concentrate. Groups seventeen and nineteen move in on my course and eliminate those turrets. Bombers I need a hole in that front gate ASAP!

Bomber: I copy general solo.

The millennium falcon as followed by a muiltude of V and X wing fighters dive low and open fire on the base, exploding the entire front gate sending the mercenaries on the wall flying in every direction.

Han: call me crazy or is that base empty?

Jacen: (sitting in co-pilots seat) this kind of trick requires the power of the force.

Han: what are we dealing with here? Pissed off garbage collectors or force-sensitives?

Jacen: We need to contact Gigin-Taue, with this base empty that means their forces are mobile.

The relief effort speeds away from the disserted base. Meanwhile in the deep forest regions The Jedi Council convenes.

Gigin-Taue: Iíve summoned you the leaders of this Jedi temple, to debate the disturbing chain of events of late. That started with the murder of my father. And now have led to the complete invashion and destruction of our community at the hands of the space raiders.

Cas-Lo: I for one would like to welcome the insight of our revered guest Luke Skywalker.

Corran Horn: were here to discuss our reaction to the invashion, master Vont. Not witness your further attempts at belittling the image of master Skywalker.

Luke: thank you master Horn, I believe a one-time pupil of mine is leading the Space Raiders. But I cannot testify as to whom as completed his training or pointed him in this direction.

Mara: the beast montagra doesnít have the wits to come up with an invashion of this scale.

Luke: Nor does he have the force potential to cloud the intention of this invashion from us.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) these Junkers arenít this brazen, this is too bold for them.

Cas-Lo: nevertheless they have invaded, they have destroyed most of our cities, they have set flame to the jungle, and they will find this temple. What are we to do wait until they find us before we act?

Tenel Ka Dijo: I agree with master Vont we must stand up for the destruction of natural life. This has already gone too far.

Gigin-Taue: now now, tenel your dathomir instincts are not to be misread as the will of the force.

Tenel Ka Dijo: Are you willing to sit here as the jungle burns around you, I will not allow it.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) I too will not sit by as the jungles are burnt!

Luke: the foliage will grow back; the people of this planet will not, there have already been heavy losses on all fronts.

Saba Sebatyne: how many more must we allow to be lost in vain, before we act?

Corran Horn: this council is unbalanced without the presence of Yap-En Soear.  But a decision must be made.

Lowbacca: (speaking wookie) were not senators, this should be left to Gigin-Taue to decide!

Cas-Lo: I agree Lowie, but this council is the only ruling body capable.

Gigin-Taue: Iím sorry that Iíve imposed this upon you all, But my fathers aids where lost at Orran.

Saba Sebatyne: my knights are more than capable of protecting the temple.

Tenel Ka Dijo: Iím prepared to call upon my sisters on Dathomir, if this council is incapable of coming to a decision on this matter.

Gigin-Taue: I will not accept the aid of the Witches of Dathomir that is out of the question!

Mara: youíre already turning down the aid of outsiders.

Luke: Master Soear our relief effort has already sustained heavy losses.

Clighal: and my healers arenít quite up to the challenge yet.

Cas-Lo: we need to come up with a solution before the space raiders can claim this planet.
Putag: (speaking ewokese) my apprentices arenít capable of defending themselves against ion canons.

Gigin-Taue: may I suggest we attempt to gather our collective force energies and generate a rainstorm strong enough to extinguish the raging fires?

Luke: with our combined energies we can also attempt to stop the space raiders.

Clighal: Cunning plan, but what if were unable to stop them all.

Lowbacca: (speaking wookie) their junk vessels wonít be able to withstand the           kind of weather we will summon.

Corran Horn: what of this Montagra?

Saba Sebatyne: Ecadogrenís arenít exactly known for their wits.

Putag: (speaking ewokese) He has displayed unusual intelligence.

Gigin-Taue:  no matter, we must do this for the sake of a peaceful resolution.

Cas-Lo: unless anyone else has something of importance to add to this session. Then I believe we may get started on focusing our energies.

As the nine council members start meditating, Han and Jacen Solo bust into the chamber bearing bad news.

Han: weíve lost all trace of the space raiders, their base was deserted and there is zero visibility out there due to the smoke.

Jacen: have you come to a decision on how to deal with this invashion?

Gigin-Taue: weíve decided to focus our energies on causing a planetary rainstorm capable of putting out the fires and crashing the junk barges.

Han: what of the merc army, I doubt these guys are afraid of getting a little wet.

Luke:  I will deal with Montagra, alone.

Mara: as you wish.

Jacen: uncle Luke are you sure, I would like to accompany you.

Luke: no jacen, I can handle this by myself.

Cas-Lo: Montagraís capture means more to this council than whatever personal reasons you are harboring, master Skywalker.

Gigin-Taue: I insist that your nephew and Chi-Ro Rahem accompany you; they are this temples best students. 

Luke: very well, but I wish for my wife and child to remain here.

Mara: I wouldnít ever take Ben into harms way and you know that.

Han: my troops need to rest and I doubt this place is big enough for all the survivors.

Cas-Lo: they may take refuge in the lower levels.

Han: great. I have to go work on my ship.

The general leaves the room as the council members scatter in different directions to prepare both themselves and their students.
Jacen approaches the three with C-3PO and a hulking bodyguard droid.

Mara: (cradling Ben) whoís the can?

Jacen: this is Acheff-9; heís a new standard issue bodyguard droid. Mom sent him here to watch my back. Iíve reprogrammed him to guard you in Lukeís absence.

Luke: thatís nice of you jacen, but you know Mara can take care of herself.

Mara: yes, but I welcome the droids help. It doesnít hurt to be too careful these days.

Jacen: exactly.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) Iím here to protect, go about your regular routine. There is nothing to see here.

Mara: well heís certainly covert. Is this fastest he moves, or is he pretending to be a piece of junk.

Jacen: Iím not quite sure, but Iím certain heíll keep Threepio Company.

Luke: oh yes, Iím sure but what exactly makes him a bodyguard droid is he outfitted with any weapons?

Jacen: letís hear it Acheff.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) Iím capable of dispensing nine thousand laser bolts per seconds via my built in blaster modules. I can generate a protective energy shield for a period of fourteen hours. Iím also well versed in physical forms of combat.

Mara: thatís great, but how do you shut him up?

C-3PO: Oh my! An advanced bodyguard unit.

Jacen: like most droids their vocal transactions are vital to their other functions.

Acheff-9: (simplistic voice) Cybot Galactica Protocol Unit. Is your prescience required at this moment?

C-3PO: (cowering) no I believe it isnít.


Luke: it must have been rather lonely growing up on Gall, completely afraid of the forbidden power that was bestowed upon you. This I can understand, but your disrespectful actions of late are inexcusable vont.

Cas-Lo: (unhooking saber hilt from belt) it is my experience that when two fellow Jedi are in dispute over something of such importance. The best way to resolve the matter is for the Jedi to Spar.

Luke: (taking hold of saber hilt) you must be joking.

Cas-Lo: (igniting purple bladed LightSaber) and through such an activity the guilty party is always revealed, in our case you shouldn't be able to maintain your clouding of the truth during our practice session.

Luke: (letting go of saber hilt) I require no weapon to combat you.

Cas-Lo: I wouldn't recommend that, this chamber was designed by Gigin-Taue as he crafted new fighting styles. It is highly advanced to say the least.

Luke activates the chamber and jumps over cas-lo as the floor begins to rotate counter clockwise, the council leader pursues Skywalker as he levitates to the ceiling while igniting his green bladed lightsaber. Vont strikes at Skywalker and is quickly pushed backward via the force into a wall of pulsing spikes; cas-lo repeals back towards Luke and locks swords with him.
Sparking and humming sabers stand between the two whom slowly come back down to the floor as a series of pillars rise up. The two set foot upon the violent moving pillars and continue their duel while jumping from pole to pole striking at one another with flawless moves. Upon almost reaching a stalemate, Gigin-Taue Soear bursts into the chamber and deactivates the training session. Both Jedi return to the floor of the chamber while disengaging their lightsabers.

Gigin-Taue: Master Luke, I had hoped the senate would dispatch you.

Luke: I was already on my way, well before comm-scan took notice of the advancing fleet.

Cas-Lo: master soear, I can't believe it. I heard the entire countryside was in flames?

Gigin-Taue: and so you challenged master skywalker to a duel upon hearing the news of my possible demise.

Cas-Lo: it wasn't like that; Skywalker is clouding something from the rest of us. I was attempting to lower his concentration on the mental block.

Luke:  and as you can feel for yourself Master Soear there is no mental block being transmitted from me. I assume Master Vont is clearly attempting to continue his advancement in rank.

Gigin-Taue: I accept neither of your conclusions and wish that whatever ill tidings that exist between the two of you will go unsettled until the balance of peace and justice is restored to proloxis four. This is my first action as lord of the planet; I request the council be summoned master vont.

Cas-Lo: yes master soear I will do as you wish.

Master Vont Strides out of the chamber, slowly followed by Luke and Gigin-Taue whom are greeted by Mara holding Ben, Han, Jacen and C-3P0.

Mara: I can't believe the nerve of that guy, accusing you of lying about something.

Gigin-Taue: (patting Luke on the back) in my all journeys I've never met anyone more focused or truthful than you master Skywalker, I assure you that once his true motives are revealed Cas-Loís punishment will be strict.

Luke: (returning the gesture) I've never condoned capital punishment. But cas-lo is clearly under the false impressions bestowed upon him by his up bringing.

Han: I would've knocked his lights out if he'd accused me of anything.

C-3PO: Oh dear! General solo I do believe you shouldn't be so prone to react with violence.

Han: cram it threepio! Its bad enough I had to shut you down after you blathered the whole trip here.

C-3PO: Impossible man, master Luke is artoo with you?

Mara: (cradling Ben) yes threepio, He's on our ship conducting repairs. Please don't distract him; He's getting a little old.

     The Slightly rusted droid makes his way back to the landing pad.

    Han: do you think you guys could take him off my hands?
    I've been close to having him melted down.

Luke: sure, artoo has seemed a bit lonely without him.

Mara: and a bit hard to understand.

Han: well Luke are you going to need me to lead your troops any further? Or would you like to take command already.

Luke: I'm sorry Han I need you to continue leading the relief effort.

Han: (walking away) I don't know how many that is you owe me.

The aged general quickly departs the deep forest regions; the falcon speeds past several hundred battle damaged Transport vessels.

Meanwhile in the burning countryside of Krushi, the space raiders deploy their Ground troops that are made up of several different races of hired guns. Including Sanyassan Marauders, Gamorrean Warriors, Tusken Raiders, Weequay Vibro-Axe men, and Rodian game hunters. The indifferent troops march into the jungle in groups of twenty per platoon, overseeing the advancement is the scurvy simpleminded Ecadogren: Montagra.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) show them no mercy, destroy everything you find.

Translation Droid: (repeating Montagra in English)

The mercenaries charge into the jungle screaming various battle cries, as the Gotal space raider commodore attempts to consult Montagra.

Commodore Doo Haffa: we've lost several barges, and their too blasted to repair. So far I still maintain this will be the end of us.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) I've been commanded to lead you Junkers to victory over Proloxis Four no matter what the cost.

Translation Droid: (repeating Montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: (swatting the floating droid away) no matter what the cost! How dare you gamble our junk fleet on this atrocity.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) You will not question what I've been told to command you to do or suffer with these people you will.

Translation Droid: (repeating Montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: (smacking floating droid) force enhanced mind tricks work only on the weak minded. Now you are under the control of someone who wishes us to commit this act of war upon a new republic founded world, I'm more than open to continue this if I can confer with your master.

Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) masterfully not comment, master has commanded me to do this. Master is a voice in my head that can hurt you if master wishes to.

Translation Droid: (repeating Montagra in English)

Montagra: (grasping head with feet) ahhhhh!

Commodore Doo Haffa: (cowering) the pain! My head it's cracking under the pressure of the voice! Stop! please I will do as you command.

Montagra: (speaking Ecado) do you understand? If master is forced to comment once more I will kill you to stop the voice.

Translation Droid: (repeating Montagra in English)

Commodore Doo Haffa: (cowering) I will continue the invasion, without anymore question of you.
Translation Droid: (repeating Doo Haffa in Ecado)

The commodore quickly runs back to his command junk barge, the vessel speeds towards the newly rising plumes of a proloxian outpost. Montagra detaches his saber hilt from his belt with his tail and ignites the Red Bladed Lightsaber while running after the advancing troops. The translation droid hovers behind him at a safe distance.

 The Space Raider junk fleet and mercenary armies split into three divisions while clouded by the massive plumes of smoke. The junk barges descend upon the city of Velorp while firing ion canons blindly, the towering capital building splits in two and comes crashing down on the fleeing residents right as Republic Transport Vessels come smashing Through the canopy jungle.

The transport vessels deploy ground troops to protect the rest of the fleeing citizens whom run for their lives as laser blasts bombard the stone and wood built city, right as the population of the city makes their way past the main bridge. The junk barge piloted by Commodore Doo Haffa opens fire on the Dam that was keeping the Velkílu River from drowning the vast canyon city. The entire the city is covered by the raging river as well as the four transport vessels. The junk barges continue on their path of Destruction.

Back in the Deep Forest Regions, Gigin-Taue Soear gives Luke and Mara a small tour of his Jedi Temple. The three walk past several training chambers where Jedi Masters give instruction to groups of ten apprentices per class, their studies range from lightsaber practice to meditation and levitation.

Gigin-Taue: as you can see master Skywalker my temple is the target of this invasion, my students are trained in methods close to that of Jedi whom served the old republic.

Mara: how do you know to train in the ways of old?

Gigin-Taue: with the help of your nephew Jacen, we attempted to mold a teaching guide based after the knowledge bestowed upon him by Vergere. As you can tell this is the best way to train Jedi. Your academy on yavin four stunted all of our growth Master Luke; it is more than clear to me now that you where trained at an alarming rate which to say the least has driven its far share of students to the Dark Side.

Luke: master soear, I find your methods to be astonishing and groundbreaking. But I do not agree with your observations on the training methods of my academy.  Besides you where briefly there and left before your training was complete at the whims of Umble.

Mara: who? I've never heard of UmbleÖ

Gigin-Taue: that's strange; the one your husband speaks of is my onetime pupil and wife Umble Zarr.

Luke: she was a disruptive student at the academy; I assume she's blossomed into a fine mother.

Mara: I'd think you would have made mention of her before if she was such a distraction to the other students.

Gigin-Taue: she was more of a distraction to master Luke, constantly answering every question that he asked to our class before the other students could react.

Mara: nothing worse than an overly eager student.


The entire planet is engulfed in blinding light for a matter seconds, but as the beacon discontinues its
radiance the space raiders are met by the relief effort that arrived during the blast of light.

Han: blast this garbage! Groups three and four help me rescue to the procession.

Cef: copy general solo!

A group of V-wing fighters soar upwards and open fire on the lead space raider barge. The falcon speeds
down to the beacon where the Royal procession is under siege from hired mercenaries whom attack the highly trained Jedi with Vibro-axes and blasters. The ensuing firestorm rains debris upon the city; Chi-ro rahem ignites his Blue bladed lightsaber and decapitates four mercenaries lunging towards umble zarr.
Gigin-Taue and Jacen Solo use the force to smash a group of barges into one another as they attempt to
open fire on the beacon, the burning rubble rains down on the city crushing thousands of fleeing citizens.

At that moment the falcon extends its ramp and maneuvers itself between an advancing army of mercenaries and the royal procession.

Jacen: (deflecting laser bolts) get aboard everybody!

Umble Zarr: are you off your bolt jacen that has to be a space raider decoy!

Gigin-Taue: (igniting yellow bladed LightSaber) no my dear, that's his Father's infamous Vessel. It's more
than safe; now get zeb-ska and yourself to safety.

Chi-Ro: (running to Zarrís side) just go! I've got your back.

Jacen: (absorbing laser blasts in his palm) everybody down!

As the young knight makes his warning a space raider barge takes a hit and crashes into the planetary
beacon causing a chain reaction of explosions along the coastline of Orran. The entire countryside bursts
into flames as the space raiders continue their bombardment. Citadels and mighty towers come crumbling
down on the citizens whom are running as fast as they can into Transport vessels, some vessels are knocked out of the sky as they lift off by laser blasts or falling debris. The royal procession quickly boards the falcon as Jacen and Gigin-Taue fend off the advancing mercenaries.

Gigin-Taue: (disengaging saber) there's nothing more we can do, let's go!

Jacen: (running up the ramp) Orran's fate now resides within the hands of the star fighters.

Gigin-Taue: (embracing umble and zeb-ska) may the force be with them.

Jacen rushes to the cockpit where his father sits alone driving the vessel, the young Jedi jumps at the
chance to assume the seat once frequented by Chewbacca as copilot.

Han: these Junkers didn't used to be this brazen.

Jacen:  the senate should have just paid them for collecting all the space garbage.

Han: how ironic, now were fighting off that same garbage.

Jacen: where are mom and Jaina?

Han: Jainaís had enough of Jag so there going their separate ways, Damn shame too the kids would have been some great pilots. Your mother and I haven't seen each other ever since the Republic was reformed and the Yuuzhan Vong where sent packing.

Jacen: its amazing how spread out we've all been, I can tell were all trying to pretend Anakin is also
somewhere out there living his own life.

Han: I don't want to talk about it. That's another reason your mother and I are practically separated, she
can't move on or except He's gone.

Jacen: I feel sorry for you both, but we must get to the deep frontier council.

Han: jacen don't sulk. I'm sorry it's justÖ

Jacen exits the cockpit, Han turns to his controls and continues to shut out the reality of how broken his
family has become. The falcon speeds into the jungle followed by dozens of Transport vessels that depart
the Battle of Orran. The Space Raider Junk Barges surround the republic assault vessels and open fire.
Destroying most of the command ships and raining debris on the burning city of Orran, the jungle around
the city is engulfed in flame causing a charge of wildlife. The ensuing blaze creates a massive plume of
smoke that encumbers the countryside of Krushi, the sole inhabited continent of Proloxis IV. The space
raider fleet attempts to adjust their formation while evading the smoke.

The Jedi Escort Vessel piloted by Luke Skywalker emerges from the canopy jungle at the entrance to the
Deep Frontier Jedi Community of Lexírer. A vast moss covered wood temple built into a massive tree, the
only technical looking part of the temple is a massive Landing Pad covered with vines.
The vessel lands and extends its ramp, Luke exits the vessel with Mara and Ben at his Side the three are
accompanied by a platoon of Republic Troops and fourteen Jedi Knights adorned in simple robes. The group enters the temple and is greeted by Jedi Masters Kyle Katarn and Corran Horn.

Kyle Katarn: Luke, this is a surprise.

Luke: (shaking hands) Kyle, I didn't expect to find you here.

Kyle Katarn: This place kind of just begs for you to stay once you show some of your skill, so don't go
exhibiting your teaching abilities.

Mara: (holding Ben's hand) what does somebody miss life out on the fringe.

Kyle Katarn: no, teaching and remaining somewhere for more than a lunar rotation is not something I'm used to.

Corran Horn: Do you know if Master Soear survived the attack on Orran?

Luke: I have no information on that; we came here to confer with him.

Corran Horn: you missed him; they had the coronation in Orran. I doubt you could have missed the shining
of the beacon.

Mara: my eyes are still recovering.

Luke: (picking up Ben) I take it Cas-Lo has been left in charge of the council.

Kyle Katarn: oh yeah, and this guy is a real piece of work.

Luke: what do you mean by that, I remember Master Vont having somewhat of an authoritative approach to his actions.

Corran Horn: He's just a little too eager to assume the title of senior council member in gigin-taueís

Mara: (taking back Ben) Doesn't Gigin-Taue have to give up control of the council in order to assume
lordship of the planet anyway?

Kyle Katarn: true, but Cas-Loís already under the assumption that no one survived. He's acting as if old
imperial rank advancement where still in effect, it would also appear that the murder of Yap-En is being
swept under the rug.

Luke: are there any suspects?

Corran Horn: not at the moment, but were certain no one in the Jedi order possesses the skill exhibited
upon Yap-En.

Mara: (holding Ben close) what do you mean?

Master Cas-Lo Vont appears from out of the shadows.

Cas-Lo: Yap-En Soear was killed by extensively lethal focused energies expelled by a Force-Sensitive
practicing a mysterious form of combat.

Luke: Greetings Master Vont, I take it you came to that conclusion sometime before the coronation was

Cas-Lo: of course, I was in charge of the investigation. There was no reason for the senate to dispatch
you, I'm sure your attention is needed elsewhere.

Mara: (holding Ben) don't talk to him like that.

Luke: Mara, could you please stay out of this.

Mara: (putting Ben down) I think you need my advice in dealing with him; master vont like myself grew up
in a strict imperial environment.

Luke: nevertheless, could you return the ship and attempt to contact Han.

Mara: all right, but I'll be back.

Mara and Ben return to the ship as the four Jedi Masters continue the argument as they march Through the Temple which houses many ground breaking training facilities designed to sharpen a Jedi's Skills to
perfection in both lightsaber combat and force abilities.

Corran Horn: your disrespectful actions towards Luke Skywalker are inexcusable Master Vont.

Cas-Lo: he may have saved the galaxy on countless occasions and personally restarted this order, but I do not have to like someone who I can sense with every once of his power is hiding something from the rest of us.

Luke: how dare you accuse me of such an act?

Kyle Katarn: I knew you'd like him.

Cas-Lo: Master Horn, Master Katarn I believe you have students to teach. Luke and I have matters of great importance to discuss.

The veteran Jedi depart the arguing masters who enter the lightsaber training chamber. The doors shut.


the only place to view the entire original version of A DARK FACADE is on


After the Mysterious death of an Most RESPECTED JEDI MASTER,
several thousand SPACE RAIDERS have begun their invasion of
territories on the untamed jungle world of PROLOXIS IV, under the
leadership of simple-minded MONTAGRA, who it would appear has
garnered the attention of an Yet to be identified DARK LORD OF
THE SITH. Upon hearing such news, the NEW GALACTIC REPUBLIC
is left no other Option; but to send a RELIEF EFFORT led by LUKE
SKYWALKER. The Jedi was already en route to pay his last respects
to the fallen master, As well as head up a lengthy investigation into
his dark demise. Unaware of the attempted revolution, Jedi Master
and Heir to the Throne GIGIN-TAUE SOEAR comes to the end of his
right of passage as The BALANCE OF THE FORCE is left in serious risk
of breaking And ushering in a new era of SufferingÖÖÖÖ..

The wayward fleet descends upon Proloxis IV, a massive untamed jungle planet. Ruled and founded by a Rebellion relief effort some twenty years before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. After the threat was subsided Squadron leader Yap-En Soear took to the throne of the planet, ushering in an era of philosophical research into the force. Under his rule the well fare of the Jedi community prospered as his son Gigin Taue journeyed deep into untamed terrorties with wife to be and apprentice Umble Zarr.
Twelve years past quickly and peacefully as the newly established Jedi council in the deep forest regions continued to break new ground in force techniques, until conflict arose amongst the highest ranking over the ascension of cas-lo vont to council leader due to the fact that gigin-taue was forced to ascend to the throne of the planet, because of the murder of his father whom it would appear was killed by someone practicing extreme force powers that would not only rival but outclass the strongest of the new Jedi order.

Aboard the Jedi Escort Luke Skywalker communicates to his fleet to prepare the troops for a ground deployment, his wife Mara Jade braces their two-year-old son Ben as the vessel breaks through the planets Atmosphere.

Luke: alright, keep your noses up were heading into heavy fire from what comm-scan is telling me.

Han: (through intercom) thatís great Luke, but the fleet and I would much rather know the force is telling

Luke: sorry Han I was just trying to be a commander for once. But while were on the subject I'm sensing a massive amount of soldiers, pilots, generalsÖand Montagra!

Mara: yet again, we cross paths with that beast you unwisely decided to train while we where crash-landed onÖ.

Han: (through intercom) hey cut him some slack Mara, Iím sure I've taught countless kids piloting tricks while stranded somewhere with nothing else to do.

Luke: you keep your eyes open Han lead the first waves in; I must go to the deep frontier council to confer with master Gigin-Taue.

The Millennium Falcon speeds past the Jedi escort with dozens of V, X wings and Mon Cal destroyers following the general to the undefended city of Orran.

Mara: it's the prescience of montagra, I can feel it.

Luke: he vowed harm would come to you, and there's be nothing I could do about it.

Mara: threats, that's all Luke empty threats. Sometimes I think you're still a farm boy leading his fathers saber through the galaxy.

Luke: I could do without the belittlement in front of my knights, but to say the least there has been part of what he said that has gone unknown to you for sometime.

Mara: and that would be?

Luke: understand that this rather difficult for me, but he swore that somewhere in the caves of Korriban: he discovered a prophecy, which foretold the end of the GalaxyÖand the force.

Mara: I suppose we have more than something to do with it.

Luke: Yes, Mara. But I must confess each mission since he told me that I've begun to feel something arising in the force.

Mara: if were both doomed to the preordain; then what of our son whom we both know is an unexpected and reluctant force user.

Luke: I believe he will be left with the ultimate test of our kind, and survive to conquer his own days.

Mara: at least we can rejoice in the fact were together now in this moment, and for some reason I think these are the times that count in the eyes of the force.

The two embrace as the vessel heads into the overgrown jungle path to the deep frontier. The Relief Effort Speeds through the canopy jungles to reach Orran before the Space Raiders Attack the capitol city.

Marching down the main bridge of Orran is a procession of Jedi masters, knights, apprentices, Soldiers, medicine men, senators, and of course residents of the planet; All marching behind the royal family of Soear. Bells ring all throughout the valley, praise is shouted from the rooftops as the citizens welcome the new lord of the planet. Gigin-Taue comes to the end of the path and walks over to the Switch of the planetary beacon, all throughout the cities of proloxis four was built a series of sensors all connected to the beacon in Orran that when turned on would light up the entire planet.

For one such instant Proloxis four would be the brightest shining planet in the galaxy, capable of being observed from any sky, of course it is tradition for the beacon to be switched upon emergency or the coming of the new lord. His wife Umble Zarr stands attempting to show joy while holding their three old son Zeb-Ska, behind the new queen stands Jacen Solo and Chi-Ro Rahem both Jedi Knights Training under Gigin-Taue for master hood of the Jedi arts.

Gigin-Taue: upon setting off this beacon my fathers rule comes to an end, if only he where here to see this glorious moment. I will let you my people hold me to the oaths I have taken to uphold Peace and Justice upon this our home world of Proloxis IV.

The crowds cheer and throw purple flower buds into the air, and light giant sticks of in sense. The entire City of Orran is engulfed in the flower buds, all present are too jovial to detect any ripple in the force as the impending Invaders approach. Gigin-Taue knells before the trigger to the beacon as he goes to press the trigger jacen Solo senses the rapidly approaching junk Barges and junk fighters.

Jacen: (igniting green bladed LightSaber) no Master Soear! Were in danger!

Chi-Ro: do not undermine the abilities of our master!

Umble Zarr: (Cradling Zeb-Ska) what is the meaning of this Solo!

Jacen runs to stop his master from igniting the planetary beacon as an armada of Retrofitted Junk Barges blast out of Hyperspace above the city. Gigin-taue gasps in aw of the sheer multitude of vessels preparing to open fire upon his birthplace; the ships go to open fire as Soear Engages the beacon.
