Synopsis:
Five years before the events of The Phantom Menace, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, are already legendary for their exploits. When a valuable cargo freighter fails to reach its destination on the planet Coruscant, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are sent into deep space to search for the missing ship. Their investigation leads them to the distant, lawless world of Ord Mantell, where everyone carries a grudge and a blaster and Jedi are less than welcome. Despite their powers, the Jedi soon realize that it will take more than the Force and lightsabers to survive!
Investigating the deaths of a cargo freighter's crew, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi travel to a moisture plant on Ord Mantell. There, they they learn that a ruthless land baron named Taxer Sundown may have had ties with the ill-fated freighter. But when they discover that most of the Ord Mantell colonists are convinced that Taxer Sundown is a Jedi, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan realize that they might be up against more than they can handle!
As the villainous Taxer Sundown prepares to flee Ord Mantell, a young woman is abducted by monstrous Mantellian savrips. Hoping to rescue the woman and capture Sundown, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are forced to split up, but their separate paths lead to even more unexpected perils, and a face-off against intergalactic slavers. Can the two Jedi bring justice to the lawless world before time runs out?
