Some infighting in the Senate between Senator's Berm Tarturi, the Senator for Andara and Sano Sauro, the Senator for Eeropha over redistribution of trade routes has caused them to become bitter enemies. Andara is the biggest and most influential planet in the Andaran system. As such it grabbed the best trade routes.
Rana Halion is the ruler of Ieria, second largest planet in the Andaran system, and the leader of the opposition opposing Andara. She is demanding a new treaty about the imbalance of trade routes, as well as better representation in the Senate.
To complicate matters, Berm Tarturi's son, Gillam Tarturi has been kidnapped. Gillam Tarturi attended the Elite Leadership School on Andara. The security system is sophisticated so it is a mystery on how Gillam disappeared. Berm Tarturi suspects that this kidnapping is just something to torture and distract him from senatorial business.
The Jedi Council sent Anakin Skywalker and Ferus Olin on a mission to the Leadership school on Andara to investigate the disappearance of Gillam Tarturi. Anakin and Ferus both agreed to spy on a boy called Reymet Autem who seemed to know his way around the security in the school. Later that day Anakin was approached by a girl called Marit Dice. She explained to Anakin about the scholarship program the school. runs, about how they only run it to make themselves look good but in reality they don't care about scholarship students.
Soon after Marit invited him (Anakin) to join her and her friends, Rolai Frac, Ze, Tulah, Hurana, for a friendly swoop race. Anakin came first and earned the respect of all of Marit's friends. They explained that they were a group and that they took missions in order to survive in the galaxy because they couldn't rely on the school for a good reference. Anakin felt a surge of excitement as he had finally fund the secret squad.
A few days later, the squad received a request from Rana Halion, the ruler of Ieria. They were to travel to Andara and penetrate the planets airspace. After telling Ferus all of the, Ferus disagreed saying that this will be seen as an unprovoked attack on Andara and asked Anakin to join him later to contact Obi-Wan. Anakin felt angered by Ferus's suggestion but knowing his duty as a Jedi he agreed. After faking sickness as an excuse to leave class, he went to his room, where he would meet Ferus and contact Obi-Wan. After Ferus didn't turn up, Anakin started to get worried. Ferus had disappeared. No one had seen him. He had just vanished, just like the disappearance of Gillam. In the library, debating whether of not he should contact Obi-Wan, Marit approached him. She told him that they had moved up the mission and they had to leave now. Deciding that the best way to find Gillam and Ferus was to travel with the squad, he accepted.
Siri found Obi-Wan on Utare and told him that Ferus was missing. Obi-Wan immediately felt betrayed as he realized that Anakin didn't fully trust him. Disguising themselves as the King and Queen of Cortella the two Jedi infiltrated the school and found Ferus. He explained that the secret squad was going to start a war and that Gillam was never really kidnapped. He staged everything himself to get revenge on his father. After looking at a datapad, their figured that Gillam was going to frame his father for his death. He just needed a body and he had chosen Anakin.
After learning the real plan of the mission, Anakin immediately resolved to sabotage the mission by disabling the laser cannon capacitors. Unfortunately Anakin was caught by Marit. She called the squad and Anakin soon was surrounded. Gillam revealed himself to Anakin and explained his plan. After a brief confrontation, Anakin disarmed the squad and Gillam. Rana Halion stepped into the hangar to find Anakin with his lightsaber out and ready to fight. She summoned battle droids to take care of him. Anakin defeated the droids and Obi-Wan, Siri and Ferus arrived and captured Rana Halion.
Siri lead Rana Halion away while Ferus left with the rest of the secret squad. Obi-Wan and Anakin were left alone. Obi-Wan expressed his disappointment at his Padawan as to why he left Ferus and went of with the squad.
