In 23 BBY, the shipbuilder Groodo the Hutt conspired to destroy the Fondor Shipyards, and created a copy of the ancient starship the Sun Runner, which he intended to crash into his target. When a Fondorian patrol ship disappeared after encountering the false Sun Runner, the Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Bultar Swan, as well as Kenobi's Padawan Anakin Skywalker, were tasked with investigating.
Kenobi and Skywalker discovered that the ship was a fake, and not the actual Sun Runner, and destroyed it before it could complete its mission. In the process, Skywalker crashed his starfighter onto the moon of Nallastia, and Kenobi and Swan followed his homing beacon to the fortress of the moon's Skull Queen. The queen was also the moon's margravine, Quenelle, and local Nallastians had brought the parents of the child Klay to her fortress to be sacrificed. Skywalker in turn took Nallastia's princess Calvaria hostage in order to bargain for the release of Klay's parents, and Quenelle acquiesced. She and Kenobi set out to find the Lost Stars of Nallastia, which alone could dissipate the energy field that the captives were trapped in. Their hunt was a success, but Kenobi called Coruscant for backup, sensing that something wasn't right on nearby Fondor.
Backup arrived in the form of Jedi Masters Mace Windu and Kit Fisto. When Groodo took over a Fondorian spaceport, Windu, Fisto, Swan, and Quenelle liberated it. Groodo fled the system, however, and the Jedi returned to Coruscant.
