Even in the days before the shadow of the Phantom Menace fell upon it, the rule of the Senate was no guarantee of peace. Trouble could come in many forms to any of the thousands of worlds that made up the Republic. When conflict arose, it was the duty of the Jedi Knights, under the guidance of the Jedi Council, to protect the innocent and set things right.
The Jedi task force sent to the Yinchorri system is met with a hostile reception, and they soon find themselves facing overwhelming odds on three different worlds. Meanwhile, back on Coruscant, a Yinchorri suicide squad attacks the Jedi Temple itself, fighting to the last being and taking as many Jedi with them as they can. Behind all of these events, Yoda detects a controlling hand, but he cannot detect its source...
What began as Mace Windu and the Jedi Council's covert search for the secret government headquarters of the warlike Yinchorri has turned into a confrontation with the military might of an entire planet. The result is a full-scale battle pitting a vast army of heavily-armed alien warriors against but twelve lightsaber-wielding Jedi. Pity the poor Yinchorri!
The Council's quest nears its end as the hiding place of the Yinchorri High Command is at last revealed. But the Yinchorri aren't about to surrender without a fight, and Jedi blood has already been spilled. How many lives -- on both sides -- will Jedi Master Mace Windu risk to bring the warlike aliens to justice? A handful of lightsabers is all that stands between a relatively peaceful Republic and galactic war.

This story occurs approximately 33 years before the Battle of Yavin.
