Plot SummaryEditAnakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are sent on a mission to destroy a separatist weapons factory. They successfully destroy the shield generator, but become concerned when the task force doesn't attack as planned. They are then picked up by Master Jyl Somtay and discover the problem; the separatist ship the Starcrusher has destroyed the fleet. The Jedi Council is then consulted to divise the best course of action and it is decided that Obi-wan,Ahsoka, Mace Windu, Ki-Adi, and Somtay will lead an attack to destroy the star crusher, while Anakin goes on a mission for the Supreme Chancellor. However, the Starcrusher (decoy) the jedi board is a trap set by Sidious to kill the jedi, as the ship has been programmed to fly straight into the systems sun with the Jedi on board. Somtay, for a brief period, doubts the Jedi's ability to escape. Mace reminds her that they are Jedi, and that they WILL escape, although he admits he has no idea how. Anakin defies the chancellor's orders and tries to help them esape. As soon as he arrives, the real Starcrusher comes out of hyperspace.
Anakin then manages to knock out all power in the real Starcrusher, while Obi-wan magnetises the ships hull, which then pulls both ships into the sun. The jedi escape just in time using space suits found on the ship. Once back on Coruscant, Somtay apologizes for her lack of faith during the mission. Mace reminds her that fear is an emotion, and to " Be mindful of your feelings, but don't let them control your actions."
