Synopsis:
This book contains the following stories:
  • Creature Comforts by Matthew and Shawn Fillbach et al.
    On a heavily forested planet, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are confronted by a battle droid fleeing from something. Instead of fighting, the droid recommends that the Jedi flee, as well. Picking a safe vantage point atop a large tree, the two Jedi leap to apparent safety. They are almost unnoticed when one of the large creatures turns around and begins headbutting the tree. The Jedi flee and are soon safely across a ravine... only to find themselves trapped with an even larger beast. Before they can be consumed by this monstrosity, a large raptor picks them up, taking them to its nest. Flying over the sea, a large sea creature ascends out of the water to devour the bird. Skywalker and Kenobi escape from the talons and drop into the ocean, where Kenobi is promptly seized by a large clam-like creature with tentacles. Skywalker ignites his lightsaber and rescues his former Master, dragging him onto shore. The two are once again confronted by a creature- a small yet ferocious crab which Kenobi quickly steps on. Finally able to catch their breath, the Jedi jump in shock when the same battle droid runs across the beach, warning them once again to run.
    Occurs during the thirty-first month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Spy Girls by Ryan Kaufman, Stewart McKenney et al.
    Padmé Amidala, Bail Organa, Sheltay Retrac, Captain Typho, and C-3PO walk into an elegant gala hosted by Bezz Drexx, who Organa suspects of accepting Separatist bribes. Separating from the rest of the group (much to Typho's chagrin), Amidala and Retrac begin to mingle, hoping to gain more information into the matter. Noticing that Drexx is being pulled over by Separatist leader Passel Argente's uncle, Amidala and Retrac follow, ignoring C-3PO's plight at the hands of an overzealous droid lover. Climbing up the stairs, the two women dispose of their dresses to reveal bodysuits, prepared for action.
    Disposing of several guards using various means, the two reach Drexx's tower. They must split up when they find a split end, and Amidala ends up finding Drexx, about to accept a case of gold from Argente's uncle. Amidala's camera is spotted by the pair, who promptly send their guards after her. Tricking the burly men with her weak, feminine appearance, Amidala escapes into a speeder piloted by Retrac. Back in Organa's apartment, they are pleased to find that the incriminating video can be used to punish Drexx for his betrayal. It's only when C-3PO is credited for his help that a look of horror pass their faces: the droid has been left to suffer with the droid lover from the previous night.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Impregnable by Chris Avellone, Ethen Beavers et al.
    BATTLE OF AMALTANNA
    After a massive battle on Amaltanna, all of General Bultar Swan's clone troopers are defeated. The Separatist leader remains snug in his fortress. Swan, determined not to fail, enters the heavily protected mansion. Ignoring the taunts of her foe, Swan slices through doors, fends off battle droids, leaps huge chasms, and traverses through mazes, finally to reach the impregnable door leading to the leader's chambers. Quick on her feet, she slices through the control panel with her lightsaber, locking herself out, but locking the Separatist leader in. Watching the Jedi exit the fortress, the leader sighs to himself, knowing that his saferoom will be his tomb.
    Occurs during the seventh month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • This Precious Shining by Jeremy Barlow, Matthew and Shawn Fillbach et al.
    Stumbling through the wreckage of their planet to get to a waiting transport, Rayt, Bryn, and Wes stumble across a completely devastated area. Clambering through the corpses of killed clones, Bryn overhears a message conveyed over a still-functional helmet. The message calls for all available help to help in the transport of Separatist funds. Immediately ditching their rusted transport, the trio don clone armor and prepare to heist enough money to buy their own ship. As they march towards the bank, Rayt spots one of his bank co-workers, Trillan Katos, and his family desperately holding off droids. Aiming his missile launcher at the droids, Bryn scores a crippling hit, allowing the Katos family to escape to freedom. Dodging the shots of Trillan's wife who holds a grudge against the clones, the three finally reach the banks, only to find the real clones steps behind them. Convincing the commander that they are part of the army, Rayt, Bryn, and Wes are forced to move aboard the Republic transport- finally finding a way off of their planet.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.
