Synopsis:
Ki-Adi-Mundi is a Jedi Knight of formidable power and influence, but not on his own homeworld of Cerea. Most of the planet's citizens are happy to continue their low-tech lives of simplicity, isolated from the Republic, but a new generation of Cereans crave speeder bikes and starships, and are prepared to fight their elders for them! How can a Jedi take up arms against his own children?
Ki-Adi-Mundi, Jedi Knight of the planet Cerea, has been charged with murder, and only the high technology of the Republic can exonerate him. But this isn't the most brutal irony: Ki's own teenage daughter is an accessory to the murder! Sinister forces are gathering around Cerea, but what could they possibly want with a remote, low-tech farm world?
As Ki-Adi-Mundi gets closer to the truth of who is seeking to destabilize his homeworld, and why, he comes closer and closer to his own doom, and only the dimly remembered teachings of his diminutive Jedi Master can save him!
Sylvn and the fugitives have taken flight from Cerea, but their starship's cargo hold is fit to burst with a load of unstoppable alien beasts. Action was what the youngsters hoped to find in the spacelanes beyond their provincial homeworld, but now they have more than they bargained for, and a trial back home to face the consequences of their actions is beginning to sound downright cozy!
High above the desert sands of Tatooine, a battle of life and death is taking place! On a freighter loaded with bloodthirsty beasts, lone Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi must fight his way to his daughter, trapped in a malfunctioning escape pod with the merciless -- but just as helpless -- criminal Ephant Mon. Only Ki can save them, but the only way to save them may be to let Ephant Mon escape . . . with Ki's daughter!
As Ki races to save his daughter from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt, he inadvertently discovers that the Hutt crime lord is secretly procuring munitions for a war fleet massing in orbit above Tatooine. Suddenly, Ki's problems on his homeworld of Cerea seem very small indeed!
