After getting some badly needed
recovery time, the Solo children address the Senate. It
is decided that an investigation team will be sent out
to Ryloth immediately. Zekk and Raynar race out to
Bornan Thul's hiding spot, but Boba Fett has caught up
to him at last. The kids get him out, but Fett has
already hacked the location of the plague warehouse out
of Thul's memory banks, and quickly gives it to Tarkona.
Nolaa musters her forces into an armada, leaving a few
representatives on Ryloth to stall for time while she
races out to the warehouse.
Realising what is about to happen, the young Jedi send
off a call to the Republic forces, then beat Tarkona to
the isolated asteroid warehouse and readies it to blow.
Lowie makes a chilling discovery: there are other types
of plagues here. Enough to wipe out all life in the
galaxy. With the explosives set, the Jedi fight through
Tarkona's operatives and launch to face the armada. Just
when all seems hopeless, the New Republic Fleet (part of
it, anyway) appears and starts fighting.
Lowie, MTD (Lowie's translator droid), Bornan, Raynar,
and Zekk are still on the asteroid, and Nolaa is
disarming the bombs. Lowie finds IG-88 and enlists his
help. Nolaa viciously murders Bornan with the plague,
then escapes with Raaba's help and with the plague in
her hands. The Diversity Alliance is defeated, and the
asteroid destroyed. Meanwhile, Raaba sees Nolaa is dying
from one of the plagues, and realises just what she is
been up to. She hyperdrives them as far away from the
New Republic as possible.
The galaxy begins to pull together and heal their mutual
wounds and stifle their prejudices. For Lowie, a message
from Raaba: "If I survive, I'll find you."
Raynar is promoted to full Jedi Knight, and Lusa and
Zekk officially become students, to the delight of
Raynar and Jaina.
