Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker investigate a distress call from a republic cruiser crashed on an asteroid. Upon boarding they meet Alysun, the craft's pilot, who explains that they were transporting alleged Dark Jedi Et Jex to Coruscant for judging before the council, but Et Jex had attacked her and her crew with Force lightning.
Obi-Wan examines the craft and discovers the mynocks that caused the crash. He also encounters Et Jex. Upon questioning, Jex reveals that the deeds attributed to him, and those for which he is to be judged, were the acts of Alysun, for it is she who is the fallen Jedi.
Inside the craft, Alysun uses her lightning on Anakin and prepares to steal the Jedi's ship, but is defeated by Obi-Wan and Jex. Obi-Wan and Anakin then return Jex to Coruscant to face the Council.

This story occurs approximately 28 years before the Battle of Yavin.
