Intergalactic thief Sienn Sconn
is working undercover at an Imperial banquet on Rydonni
Prime. He overhears Moff Caerbellak and King Rilvvan K’ntarr
as they plan the unveiling of a new weapon to the Empire
– a weapon Draskha the Hutt told Sconn about. A
prototype weapon Sconn plans to steal. He is yanked into
a side room by Princess Kalieva K’ntarr, who demands
to know who he is and why he is here. She wants off
Rydonni Prime, and is willing to help Sconn if he will
help her. She helps Sconn sneak into the prototype labs,
where they take the prototype and take off. Leaving town
in a stolen AT-AT, they head for a transport offworld
– instead finding themselves in the middle of an
Imperial parade. When Moff Caerbellak learns of the
prototype’s theft, he puts a blaster to King K’ntarr’s
head – in full view of Sienn and Kalieva. Sienn is
forced to reveal himself, shooting up the parade stand.
Sconn is quickly attacked by the Moff’s Mistryl shadow
guard Variiese, as Caerbellak takes the King hostage.
Sconn blows Variiese up, then tries to regain control of
the damaged and out-of-control AT-AT. No luck – it is
about to walk right through the Imperial Consulate. They
jump out just as it levels the building, then makes it
on foot to the Outlands and the waiting freighter
Corellian Thunder. The princess bids Sconn farewell as
he takes off with the prototype… then returns to Moff
Caerbellak, who is standing over the corpse of her
father. It was all a setup by Caerbellak, as a way of
finding – and eliminating – Rebel underground cells.
The Moff and the new Queen laugh at their victory.
