Synopsis:
This book contains the following stories:
  • Versus by Matthew and Shawn Fillbach et al.
    Grandly surveying the audience of his arena, Mondo-Mod the Hutt announced the contenders for the evening: one Jedi Master, Luminara Unduli, against an assortment of beasts, with no lightsaber and no Force. For the first fight, Mondo-Mod unveils a wampa, who Unduli quickly dispatches by jumping up, grabbing him by his horns, and flipping him, using simple physics. Second, the Hutt announces a durkii, who the Jedi defeats by darting underneath his legs and back, causing the creature to flip onto its back. Finally, quite displeased, Mondo-Mod declares the final contender: a heavily outfitted droid, who is quickly disabled when Unduli flicks a rock into its visor. Winning their bet, Unduli returns to Mondo-Mod, who obliges their deal by handing her the coordinates of a Separatist droid factory on Diorda. Afterwards, the Master meets with her Padawan, Barriss Offee, who, disguised as a masked gambler, managed to win 10,000,000 credits, forcing the Hutt to go out of business. Their mission a total success, Unduli and Offee return to their starship.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Old Scores by Chris Avellone, Matthew and Shawn Fillbach et al.
    HUNT ON NAR SHADDAA
    Returning to the slums of Nar Shaddaa, Aurra Sing meets with Urdruua the Hutt, arriving on tips of a Jedi nearby. Arriving at his palace, Urdruua reveals that Sing was the Jedi as metal doors close around her and poisonous gas begins seeping in. Holding her breath, Sing crawls through one of the vents, emerging atop the building where another group of thugs awaits her. Wiping them out, she targets a group of snipers with her rifle, then jumps from the roof, taking command of a speeder. Pursued by smart mines, Sing ignites her lightsabers and dispatches them, landing neatly atop another rooftop. Bringing out her comlink to talk to Urdruua, Sing reveals the presence of a bomb in the Hutt's building- as the bomb explodes. Grinning slightly at the dispatch of another enemy, Sing begins the hunt for real Jedi once more.
    Occurs during the fourth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • One Of A Kind by Jason Hall, Ethen Beavers et al.
    THEFT ON KAMINO
    Arriving on Kamino with a pair of clone troopers, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi meets with Taun We, informing her of a Separatist plan to steal the original genetic source of the clones. As Master Mace Windu contacts Kenobi, reminding him to be aware of the Zeltron bounty hunter Vianna D'Pow, the hunter herself appears around the corner. Killing the clones, D'Pow is reminded of her childhood, where she was mocked for being the only albino of her red-skinned race. Taunting Kenobi with the gene sample, she runs outside and leaps atop an aiwha, closely followed by Kenobi, who manages to land on the beast's tail. Crashing into the water in the throes of combat, the aiwha dives, sending D'Pow and Kenobi into a heated combat underwater. D'Pow narrowly escapes, grappling onto her speeder, while Kenobi believes that her mission as a gene thief is a failure- having managed to retrieve the genetic sample of Jango Fett. Returning to Tipoca City, Taun We informs him that her personal mission was a success: D'Pow had previously placed an order for a clone of herself. When asked if the order should be canceled, Kenobi allows it to proceed, simply stating that nobody "should have to be alone".
    Occurs during the second month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Pathways by Jeremy Barlow, Matthew and Shawn Fillbach et al.
    Marching on a Republic stronghold on a forested planet, a lone battle droid steps on a mine, blowing the line apart. Shockingly, that battle droid survives, his connection to the hive-mind severed. Realizing that he has a life of potential ahead of him, the droid flees, only to be spotted by a super battle droid, who pursues him only to be knocked off a cliff, the battle droid falling shortly behind. Walking away from his crushed former-companion, the battle droid finds a secluded tree, where he sits down, his power source already depleted. He remains there for some years, only to be found later by a group of farmers, who decide to power him up and use him on the farm.
    Occurs during the sixth month after the Battle of Geonosis.
