Synopsis:
This book contains the following stories:
  • Graduation Day by Chris Avellone, Stewart McKenney et al.
    Quietly working out on the fields of Dantooine, Wass drops his job in surprise as he sees Separatist ships moving in on the horizon. He runs back to his friends, declaring that their day has come. As the rest of the children flee to the escape ship, Wass and two of his friends stay behind to hold off the droids, only to find that they are trapped. Zac uses his connection with animals to start a stampede, trampling the droids and clearing a path. The three split up, each using their unique skills to decimate the droid ranks. Zac and Wass' third friend quickly move to the escape ship and begin piloting it away. They reach Wass just as he is outnumbered in the fields, picking him up to safety. When asked what their destination is, Zac firmly replies that they're heading to the Jedi Academy on Coruscant to graduate at last.
    Occurs during the fourth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Thunder Road by Matthew & Shawn Fillbach et al.
    In Death Canyon, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi impatiently watches as Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker patches up an old VXL speeder. There is a squad of bounty hunters chasing after them and only one way out of the canyon, a path that the hunters have closed off. Skywalker zooms the speeder out of the garage and Kenobi hops on, skeptical of his former Padawan's modifications but soon hanging on for his life as the VXL blasts off. Unfortunately, Skywalker informs him that they could not slow down even if they wanted to, and this proves troublesome when a harpoon is stuck into the speeder. Rather than stop it, the harpoon gun itself is pulled out of the ground, forcing Kenobi to jump onto the top of the speeder and dispatch the bounty hunter trailing behind it. The two Jedi next face two rows of bounty hunters on each side of them, some with rocket launchers and some with blasters. As Kenobi deflects the bolts, Skywalker takes both lightsabers and hooks them up to the power core, giving the speeder a moment of sonic speed and allowing it to jet to safety, to the Republic headquarters where Grand Master Yoda awaits. The old Master remarks on how good the speeder looks, and Kenobi groans as Skywalker quips "once a classic, always a classic".
    Occurs during the thirty-first month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Chain of Command by Jason Hall, Ethen Beavers et al.
    During the midst of the Clone Wars on the planet Hitaka, Jedi Knight Anise I'Zak enters the tent of Generals Aayla Secura and Ki-Adi-Mundi. I'Zak is given a top-secret canister and is instructed to deliver it to the Republic camp several clicks to the east. On the way there, she is ambushed by several battle droids and super battle droids. After dispatching them, she soon stumbles across a squad of droidekas in a native village. Although the battle manages to break through the walls of one of the homes, the natives help I'Zak in defeating her droid foes. Before one of the droidekas is taken out, however, it manages to shoot off one last bolt, hitting the secret canister squarely in the middle and destroying it. I'Zak takes her anger out on a nearby team of super battle droids and later returns to the camp disappointed. She is surprised when Secura and Ki-Adi-Mundi reveal themselves, stating that I'Zak's mission was a complete success, as her real mission was to be a decoy as the two generals dealt with a top secret mission, which came directly from Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Elsewhere, Count Dooku meets with the hologram of Darth Sidious. The count informs his master that the mission was a success and that Secura and Ki-Adi-Mundi had no clue their own mission was a diversion so that Dooku could successfully carry out his task. Sidious smiles, remarking that Dooku has learned the "importance of carrying out orders"... something that Ki-Adi-Mundi told I'Zak only moments before.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Waiting by Matthew & Shawn Fillbach et al.
    A clone trooper sits at a cannon overlooking a bridge, affirming to his commander that he is in position and will be ready when the Separatist droid army arrives in three hours. The Republic reinforcements are delayed, and the lone trooper is the only resistance that the droids will meet on their way to the nearby mining colony. As he lines up his shot, one of the local creatures steals the rockets for the cannon, darting into a nearby hole. The clone follows the creature, only to find that the tunnel isn't stable enough to support his weight. The creature flees and the clone, clutching the rockets, falls down into an underground lake. There, he is attacked and swallowed by a massive underwater creature, but he manages to blast his way out and is swept away by the current. Noticing that there is a waterfall up ahead, he clings onto a rock but is soon met by the same creature as before, who gleefully bangs on the clone's hands. The trooper falls down the waterfall, only to find that he is at the base of the bridge and that the Separatists are in the middle of their crossing. The clone, thinking fast, sets the rockets at the bottom of the bridge and swims away, blasting the rockets once he has reached safety. The bridge explodes, destroying the opposing army. Wet and tired, the trooper returns to his previous station, ready to pack up the cannon and move on to his next assignment. He sighs in resignation as the local creature from before darts before him, grabbing the cannon and running away and beginning a new chase.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.
