Darman isn't just an ordinary Clone Soldier, he's an elite Republic Commando. He might be just 10 years old, but he has the physical appearance of an extremely fit 20-year old. After 10 years of the most demanding training that could possibly exist for a soldier, Darman finds himself the lone survivor of his 4-man team following his first battle.

Darman is immediately teamed up with three other "lone survivors" for a secret mission to destroy a nano-virus. His odds of survival are long, at best. Being a professional, Darman is determined to ensure his new squad is successful, but promptly finds himself separated and out of communications immediately upon planetfall. He thinks his problems are solved when he encounters an undercover Jedi. He soon learns that she is less than ideal as a Jedi, lacking both skill and confidence.

Then enemy, one of the most ruthless Mandalorians to live, knows he is on the planet. Worse than that, the Mandalorian knows what the commando's target is and plans a most unwelcome greeting as the Republic Commando cuts a large swath of destruction in his efforts to accomplish the mission and reunite with his new brothers.
