Ferus Olin's a prisoner of the newly minted Imperial government. His friends are still under attack and barely escape with their lives. Jedi Solace and young Trever and a few others are forced to fight their way through some stormtroopers before diving into an icy pool to escape. Once safe, they go to Dex's hideout to rest and plan how to get to Ferus.
Ferus and an old friend meet up in prison. They plot and execute their escape from prison just in time to meet up in the skies with their comrades. Solace and her companions blast the pursuers off Ferus and Clive's tails and they all blast off for a place with a nice bar they can sit and chat at.
Inquisitor Malorum's quest to find the secret Padme Amidala took to her grave leads him to her home planet of Naboo. Learning Malorum has gone there, Ferus follows, determined to not let Obi-wan down by letting Malorum discover Padme's secret, which he himself does not know. Padme's maternal grandmother, Ryoo Naberrie holds that secret: that Padme's child was born. This information must not fall into imperial hands.
Ferus convinces Queen Apialana and Boss Nass to destroy the Theed hangar and more importantly the local imperial garrison on Naboo. They catch up with Malorum just after he finds out Padme's secret. Ferus and Malorum have a fierce lightsaber battle and Malorum falls to his death in a generator core. Ferus and his friends then blow the hangar and garrison to prevent the Empire from punishing the Naboo. At the very end, Ferus receives a very interesting offer for amnesty and a face to face meeting with Emperor Palpatine himself.
