Drake Paulsen and his Wookiee partner Nikaede are enjoying a sumptuous meal at Feyodor’s Tavern on Omman, on the occasion of the Moon Festival. He is just starting to enjoy his vacation when a woman named Padjia Anjeri comes and asks him to take a job for her. She offers 30,000 credits in return for Drake taking her and a pair of passengers’ offworld immediately. Drake will not jump in blind, and demands an explanation. She reveals a small crystalline statue – an ancient Twi’lek head she saved from being sold on the black market. She is an anthropology student who wants to take the statue back to a museum on Ryloth – and avoid those who stole the statue in the first place. Drake finally accepts the job, only to find stormtroopers killing Padjia’s “passengers.” They are sent on a chase through the capital city, with the troopers clearly out to kill the lot of them. They run across a lightsaber-wielder – another of the passengers named Colonel Tyneir Renz. They make their way to a smuggler hideout and Drake’s waiting ship, the Steadfast. Drake and Padjia are growing quite romantic, and he learns that Renz is a Jedi – and Padjia’s father. He takes the group off Omman towards Derora, a moon in the Birjis system. She also reveals that the “idol” is the crystallised ashes of a Jedi hero from 4,000 years ago. The Rebels are trying to forge an alliance with the Twi’leks, and the idol is the key to pulling it off. At the Rebel base on Derora, the idol is presented to the Nercathi clan. General Cracken offers Drake a job, but the smuggler refuses, says goodbye to Padjia, and heads off for other jobs.
