New Republic Intelligence agent Selby Jarrad is sent to Verkuyl, a bacta-processing world, to foment rebellion against its Imperial rulers. She will use the occasion of a refinery-building auction by Governor Parco Ein to confront him and either force him to surrender or kill him. She finds herself attracted to Imperial guard Daven Quarle, whom she learns is grandson of the original ruler of Verkuyl and part of the local resistance. However, when her plan falls apart and her partners are killed, she and Quarle join forces. They decide to carry out the plan themselves. That is, until Selby overhears Quarle conspiring with Ein. She faces him with a blaster - and Quarle explains why he would done what he has, who it is really for - the people of Verkuyl. His grandfather was a tyrant, but Quarle’s own work for the Empire has greatly improved their lives. If the New Republic takes over, he says, the people face hardship and starvation. Does she really want to do that to them? She stuns him. In addition, 34 hours later, Verkuyl is in the hands of the New Republic. Quarle is on the run with Ein and the other Imperials. However, Selby is not feeling too good about herself.

This story occurs approximately 7 years after the Battle of Yavin.
