Jacen and Jaina Solo have been training at the Jedi Academy for a month, along with Teneniel Djo's daughter Tenel Ka and the snobbish Raynar Thul. Han and Chewbacca bring a new trainee, Chewbacca's nephew Lowbacca, to the academy. To help the young Jedi understand him, Chewbacca and Threepio have made a small handheld translator droid named MTD (He unfortunately got most of his personality from Threepio). The Wookiee is also given a gift: a T-23 skyhopper the kids can fix up and fly.
On the first flight, Lowie notices something shiny out in the Yavin jungle. When the kids head out to investigate it later, they find out it is a crashed TIE Fighter. It has been sitting there since the Battle of Yavin, 23 years ago. They secretly begin repairing it as well. Just when it is almost ready, the pilot Qorl appears and catches them. Worn out and battered down, Qorl wants only to return to his Empire, even if there is almost none of it left. Moreover, if he has to kill the children to do it, he will. He forces them to finish repairs, then takes off to blast the Jedi Academy to bits. However, the twins deliberately botched the repairs as well as left a crystal snake in the cockpit. Lowie has made it back and called the Millennium Falcon for help. Qorl has no choice but to escape. The reunited young Jedi return to the academy and get back to their training and the T-23 restoring.

This story occurs approximately 22 years after the Battle of Yavin.
