As the world of Malastare begins to thrum to the rocket thrusts of the galaxy's greatest Podracers, the Jedi Council members are threatened from all sides! Lannik Terrorists, Ffib priests, and half of the galaxy's most nefarious crime lords are here, and justice is the last thing on their minds! And in the hard-bitten world of Podracing, they've never stopped a race just because a few sentients have tumbled onto the track-even if those unfortunate beings are Jedi Knights!
As the Gran governor delays the Jedi, they discuss they matters at hand. Finally, the talks begin and the respective diplomats are brought in. Tempers get hot quick at the negotiations, and Master Windu is forced to end talks for the day early. Meanwhile the final race of the Vinta Harvest Classic is beginning. As they leave, the Lannik advisor Hutar Zash offers the Jedi councilors a ride. To their surprise, their Lannik hosts attempt an assassination on the Jedi's lives on the way. The Jedi narrowly escape, but fall straight into the path of the oncoming podracers.
