Synopsis:
During a time of conflict, the galaxy's supply of bacta, used to treat the sick and injured, runs dangerously low making the existing supply highly valuable. The charismatic and bold Iaco Stark brings together a conglomeration of pirates and smugglers to form the Stark Commercial Collective. Their goal: liberate the existing supplies of bacta for the Outer Rim colonies. Intrigue and treachery abound until Senator Valorum arranges to bring in the Jedi to negotiate peace between the Republic, the Trade Federation, and the Stark Collective. Before talks can begin double-crosses are already being planned. But what exactly is the trap and who will fall victim?
Iaco Stark has cut off the hyperspace lanes to Republic ships and the remnants of the Republic Army and Navy are stranded with the Jedi Tyvokka, Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Troiken. Meanwhile, Tholme and his Padawan discover the truth about the scarcity of bacta.
To prevent the Republic Senate from surrendering, the Jedi must get Senator Valorum back to Coruscant. The assaults grow heavier on the remnants of the Republic forces on Troiken and the fragile defense falls increasingly to Plo Koon. Can Qui-Gon Jinn find the secret of the virus that has corrupted the Republic nav computers and open up the hyperspace lanes to the Republic again? Meanwhile, Tholme and his apprentice, Quinlan Vos, struggle to get what they've learned back to the other Jedi.
While Tholme and Quinlan Vos try to make their escape from Thyferra, the Republic forces on Troiken stage a desperate battle against the overwhelming might of the Stark Collective. Can Plo Koon, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Adi Gallia rally the troops? And can they get Senator Valorum back to Coruscant before the Republic surrenders to Stark's demands?
