Hart - and Parn Gorra - Fiolla of Lorrd (known as Fiolla of Lorrd for short), Corporate Sector Authority Auditor General had just exited hyperspace when she receives a Priority X message from the Office of the Prex. She delves into the body of the message, finding to her shock that the Prex's informants have discovered that the Rebels had just destroyed the Empire's Death Star battle station near the Yavin star system. And because the Corporate Sector Authority had an Imperial charter, anything that affected the Empire affected the CSA as well.
The message indicated that one rumour placed the fleeing band of insurgents in the Abo Dreth system, which was within Corporate Sector borders. The Prex wanted her to verify that information - immediately. After taking a sleep from exhaustion from being awake for 30 hours, Fiolla awakes to a start by her male prisoner Crell from Commex. She lands her ship, the 'Tydia Rish' on Abo Dreth, a large brown world dotted with hundreds of silver lakes. Fiolla sees an object through her macrobinoculars about three kilometers away, gleaming in the light of the system's yellow sun. "It's a Corellian StarRunner", came a woman's voice from behind her. Fiolla spun around, the human woman before her wore standard spacer's clothing and a breath mask - and had a sporting blaster trained on Fiolla.
After bargaining her ship for her life, Fiolla discovers that the mysterious woman is actually after her. Fiolla believes that the woman's boss is Erdin Giblo of Commex, where Fiolla had just infiltrated one of his corporate headquarters not three hours ago. "Hardly. I report to the head of the super - corp that owns Commex," replies the woman. Fiolla starts to wonder how this woman would have known about her last assignment. There were only two people who had access to that information - the Prex himself, Chils Meplin and his assistant. She looked into the woman's eyes. "Akeeli Somerce". "Very good, my ex - Auditor General. The Prex has decided that you and your friend know too much." Fiolla discovers that the rumour about the Rebels is obviously fictitious. "Wait!" Fiolla says, stalling. "I do not understand. What does the Prex have to do with Commex leaking top - level CSA data to the Empire?" Suddenly, Crel, somehow getting out of his binders, hands Fiolla her blaster and Crel and Akeeli both shoot each other. Crel lays dying, and Fiolla notices an ID card fall from his jacket - he is an Auditor General. Finally the circumstances started to fall into place, forming a twisted plot of sabotage and treason - and now attempted assassination. Naven Crel had gone undercover to ferret out a traitor against the CSA, and his investigation had lead him to Commex, which was in turn controlled by the Prex, the second most powerful man in the Corporate Sector. Crel, tells Fiolla in his last dying words to "Get . . . Meplin"
