This book collects together the following comic stories:
  • Sacrifice
    With the Battle of Geonosis, the galaxy is officially plunged into war. As the Jedi Council struggles with their new role as leaders of the Republic's clone army, other Jedi operatives have taken on the job of intelligence gathering. On a vast space station known as "The Wheel," Jedi knight Aayla Secura is searching for a notorious gun-runner who can help her intercept the Separatist's latest secret plans. But spying is a dirty business, and operatives are often more expendable than the information they possess. Is this what being a Jedi has come to?
    Occurs during the third month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Brother's In Arms / Jango's Legacy / No End in Sight

    Two months after the Battle of Geonosis, with the forces of the Republic and the armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems stalled in a series of indecisive battles, the Separatists risk a devastating strike at the heart of the Republic's war machine: they attack the cloning facility on Kamino! Their hope is to permanently destroy the Republic's ability to create new clones for its army. The Republic's defense rests on a squadron of Jedi Starfighters and a battalion of Jedi-led clone troopers within the facility itself. It's a battle fought on three fronts: in space, on the ground, and underwater!
    Occurs during the third month after the Battle of Geonosis.

  • Schisms

    Count Dooku's departure sent ripples through the Jedi Order that have developed into breaking waves by the time of the Clone Wars. The call to arms by the Jedi Council has been met with resistance by a few within the Jedi ranks: some refused to serve a questionable government in their new roles as army generals.
    Mace Windu has been dispatched to investigate this growing schism, as four renowned Jedi leaders have been united by the latest dissident, Sora Bulq. Windu departs for Ruul, a Sriluurian moon to parley with the disenfranchised Jedi, and discovers a new threat: a Force-wielding enemy in the form of Asajj Ventress.
    Occurs during the fourth month after the Battle of Geonosis.

These stories occur  between 2 and 3 months after the Battle of Geonosis, nearly 22 years before the Battle of Yavin.
