Things are going great for the
young Jedi Knights. Peckhum has dropped by to visit, and
Zekk has just finished the building of his lightsaber.
But for Anja Gallandro, life is anything but great. She
is going through spice withdrawal. Almost mad with pain,
she steals the Lightning Rod and takes off for
Kessel. The kids are not far behind her in the Rock
Dragon. Meanwhile on Kessel, Chief Administrator
Nien Nunb just barely survives an attempt on his life.
Anja arrives, finds Lilmit, and forces out of him the
truth: Czethros had been behind the war on Anobis, and
is currently stockpiling spice near the Crystal Reef
resort on Calamari. She leaves to sabotage the
operation. The Jedi arrive shortly thereafter. In return
for Nien’s help, he asks them to look out for any more
trouble. They too find Lilmit, and learn where Anja’s
gone. Jaina and Lowie stay behind to protect Nien as the
others head after her, requesting Ambassador Cilghal’s
But there is little they can do when Nien’s own guards
give him up to Black Sun operatives. Czethros arrives,
now the new owner of Kessel. He plans to use Black Sun
to set off sudden coup’d’etats across the galaxy and
bring the New Republic to its knees in the coming days.
And the two Jedi are in hiding, listening to his plans.
They use MTD (Lowbacca's translator droid) to destroy
the transmitter Czethros was going to transmit his
go-signal from, then rescue Nien.
The other Jedi reach Anja, and learn Czethros’s plan
from her. With the unintentional help of a sea creature,
the andris supply is destroyed and the Jedi are trapped
under the polar ice cap. After Cilghal cures Anja of her
withdrawal, the group cuts their way free with
lightsabers, the last time Anja will use hers.
Jaina, Nien, and Lowie chase Czethros into the deepest
levels of the mines. He has no intention of facing his
superiors in Black Sun, and has to be frozen in
carbonite to be taken alive. The exhausted Jedi return
to Yavin. Luke has a surprise for them: a ceremony of
thanks will be held for them by the New Republic. Their
training is over, and it is time to prepare for new
lives. Anakin has figured out a way to root out the
Black Sun cells, so that threat is over. Anja announces
she will leave after the ceremony, and Lando hires her
as a pilot. The ceremony is a rousing show of thanks to
the Young Jedi Knights, as Tionne sings songs of their
