After getting some badly needed recovery time, the Solo children address the Senate. It is decided that an investigation team will be sent out to Ryloth immediately. Zekk and Raynar race out to Bornan Thul's hiding spot, but Boba Fett has caught up to him at last. The kids get him out, but Fett has already hacked the location of the plague warehouse out of Thul's memory banks, and quickly gives it to Tarkona. Nolaa musters her forces into an armada, leaving a few representatives on Ryloth to stall for time while she races out to the warehouse.
Realising what is about to happen, the young Jedi send off a call to the Republic forces, then beat Tarkona to the isolated asteroid warehouse and readies it to blow. Lowie makes a chilling discovery: there are other types of plagues here. Enough to wipe out all life in the galaxy. With the explosives set, the Jedi fight through Tarkona's operatives and launch to face the armada. Just when all seems hopeless, the New Republic Fleet (part of it, anyway) appears and starts fighting.
Lowie, MTD (Lowie's translator droid), Bornan, Raynar, and Zekk are still on the asteroid, and Nolaa is disarming the bombs. Lowie finds IG-88 and enlists his help. Nolaa viciously murders Bornan with the plague, then escapes with Raaba's help and with the plague in her hands. The Diversity Alliance is defeated, and the asteroid destroyed. Meanwhile, Raaba sees Nolaa is dying from one of the plagues, and realises just what she is been up to. She hyperdrives them as far away from the New Republic as possible.
The galaxy begins to pull together and heal their mutual wounds and stifle their prejudices. For Lowie, a message from Raaba: "If I survive, I'll find you." Raynar is promoted to full Jedi Knight, and Lusa and Zekk officially become students, to the delight of Raynar and Jaina.

This story occurs approximately 24 years after the Battle of Yavin.
