A black vessel descends through the polluted atmosphere of Ord Mantell; a lone figure disembarks after the Corellian transport lands. Many locals flee when the catch a glimpse of the solitary person, a Nalrithian bounty hunter named Cypher Bos. Cypher has come to speak to a Chadra-Fan named Baajik, a secret double agent for either the Rebels or the Hutts, whichever side serves his immediate needs.
A robed figure watches Cypher Bos walk down the street to the 'Drunken Bantha', the only place worth travelling this far for. The robed figure, a Rebel, is shocked to see his own agent sell him out to Cypher Bos. The Rebels hood falls away to reveal that he too, is a Nalrithian, the same insectoid species as Cypher Bos. Nalrithians, who share a mental link between eggmates, allows them to think and act at a limited range no more than a dozen meters. Phoedris Bos, the Rebel, has managed to suppress his thought link until realisation strikes to the fact that he is being sold out, and one powerful thought of "No1" reverberates across the Drunken Bantha.

This story occurs approximately 3 years after the Battle of Yavin.
