Plot summaryEdit

DVvDM Resurrection

Darth Maul attacks Darth Vader.

Darth Vader arrives on the volcanic moon Kalakar Six in order to intercept Rebels passing on stolen plans for the Death Star. Sensing something familiar after landing, Vader dispatches his squad of stormtroopers to scout the area. However, the stormtroopers are quickly cut down by a mysterious assassin, wielding a red lightsaber.

Vader enters a hollowed out volcano and is confronted by a number of Prophets of the Dark Side. They inform him that the information about the Rebels is false, and that they brought him here because they don't think he is fit to serve the Emperor. As he attempts to strike the prophets down, he is blocked by a copy of Darth Maul. The Prophets resurrected Maul to replace Vader at the Emperor's side, and they goad Vader into dueling with the former Sith apprentice.

The pair launch into a furious duel, hurling insults at each other. They battle through the volcano onto a bridge situated over a river of lava. The bridge collapses, but both Sith narrowly escape falling in and the duel continues.

Vader manages to split his opponent's saber in two, but both sides remain intact. "Maul" strikes Vader on the helmet, causing him to fall to the floor. As the Maul copy moves in for the killing blow, Vader uses the Force to retrieve his lightsaber and stabs it through his own stomach, killing the enemy behind him. "Maul," before he dies, questions what Vader could hate enough to destroy him. Vader's response: "Myself."

As Vader confronts the Prophets, they are electrocuted by Palpatine. He has arrived to check on Vader's progress, though he denies any involvement with the Prophets. He informs Vader there is much to do in stopping the Rebels with the stolen plans, and Vader dutifully follows his master to a waiting shuttle.
