Two Jedi graduates revisit their
old school - Kyp Durron and Streen. As Kyp helps
reassure a now in retraining Zekk, the kids call Han to
let him know he is there. Turns out Han is already on
the way to Yavin IV, with Anakin and a surprise for the
young Jedi - he is gonna be Grand Marshal at the
Blockade Runners Derby at Ord Mantell, and the kids are
When they arrive there, an old enemy of Han's is waiting
- Czethros. To their surprise, he welcomes them. The
following morning, the Millennium Falcon takes a
run on the race route, with Han trying to beat the race
record (which he set years ago). Ironically, the Falcon's
mad speed is what saves it from the field of space mines
that nearly blows it to bits.
After a brief flurry and delay, the race is allowed to
take place. Tenel Ka and Lowie win the race, but
piloting the ship is Zekk! As the children celebrate,
they are suddenly set upon by creatures that steal the
space mine fragments. A new lightsaber-wielding fighter
joins them in fighting off the creatures, a woman who
claims Han murdered her father long ago. She is Anja
When Han refutes her claims, she challenges him to check
out her war-torn world of Anobis, a world that has
received no help from the Republic. In reality, it is
all a set-up, orchestrated by Czethros, the new head of
Black Sun, who is paying Anja off by feeding her andris
spice addiction. En route to Anobis, the Millennium
Falcon stops and shuts down an arms trading ship.
They continue on to the desolate planet and begin
learning about the problems there. They also fight off a
lethal group of knaars.
Anja leads them to her mining village, only to watch her
people take them hostage. She leads an attack on a
farming village, only to accidentally kill the mining
village leader's brother. He marshals his forces to wipe
the farmers off the planet, until the Jedi tell him of
the weapons trader Lilmit, dealing to both sides to keep
the war going. Negotiations to end the war begin, with
Kyp and Streen showing up to help destroy the weapons.
And Anja is offered to become a Jedi student at Yavin.
The perfect opportunity for her and Czethros.
