The Young Jedi busy themselves
with little things: hatching a gort egg, Raynar's
return, meeting Peckhum, Lowie worrying about Raaba and
then telling Sirra her friend is not dead. Zekk returns
to Borgo Prime and meets with a cloaked prospective
employer, who wants him to find Tyko, and to send a
message to the Thul family. Zekk realises its Bornan
Raaba pops back up at the Academy, and goes with Lowie
back to Kashyyyk. After he leaves, Luke returns with a
surprise for the children, a now almost, grown up Lusa,
ready for her training. She tells a frightening tale of
how, two years before, she may have been responsible for
a human family's death, working for the Diversity
Hunting for the Thul family at Ziost, Zekk is set upon
by Dengar. He manages a difficult escape and gets the
message to Aryn. On Ryloth, Tarkona reveals her plans.
She is gotten her hands on a plague made by Evir
Derricote, creator of the Krytos virus. This one,
however, works only on humans and is far more lethal.
Even Emperor Palpatine was afraid of it. The reason she
is after Thul is because he alone knows where a depot
with sufficient supplies of the plague to wipe out all
humans in the galaxy is.
Puzzling things out in his mind, Zekk meets with Boba
Fett on Tatooine and asks for advice. From Fett's words,
he decides to find Tyko, get paid by Bornan, and then
run him in. Raynar and Lusa are becoming very friendly.
He decides he will go to Mechis III to watch over his
lost uncle's droid factory. He asks the others to come
with him. At the same time, Zekk finds clues on Kuar
that leads him that way as well. To their shock, they
find Tyko there. Moreover, IG-88 - who is serving him?!?
On Kashyyyk, Raaba convinces Lowie and Sirra to go with
her to Ryloth, to meet the Diversity Alliance. Tyko set
up his own kidnapping, hoping to flush Bornan out. He
assists the kids, helping upgrade MTD's (Lowbacca's
translator droid) systems. Zekk appears and rejoins his
friends. Then Dengar shows up, convinced Bornan is
hiding there. Nevertheless, the new Jedi are too much
for him, and he takes to his heels. They reprogram IG-88
to find Bornan and send him out, as Zekk resumes his
search and Tenel alerts her parents to the problem.
