|Flashpoint, Part 2|
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 8: Flashpoint, Part 2 is the eighth issue in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series of comics.
The Mandalorians have captured one of fugitive Padawan Zayne Carrick's faithful companions, which means one thing—a rescue mission deep behind enemy lines! Above the mining world of Vanquo, Republic and Mandalorian starfighters battle, while down on the surface, the motley crew of The Last Resort become stowaways on their own ship, piloted by an unknown thief. Even if they regain control of the ship in time to pursue their friend’s abductors, how will they ever make it past the Republic and Mandalorian armadas, both of which want them dead! Forget about the Force, what these four need is some cold, hard luck!
Continuing the ongoing monthly series set four thousand years before the rise of the Empire and the fall of Anakin Skywalker (and eight years prior to the events in the Knights of the Old Republic video game).
After having had their ship stolen, Zayne Carrick, Gryph, Camper, and Elbee manage to cling on and make their way inside before it exists Vanquo’s atmosphere. Inside the ship, the four fugitives manage to overtake the Mandalorian on board and escape the Republic forces in orbit by jumping to hyperspace.
Later, while trying to interrogate the captive Mandalorian, Zayne is told by Gryph that Camper has been flying the ship into Mandalorian space to attempt to rescue Jarael. Hearing this news, the Manadalorian decides to speak up and offers help in keeping them alive. Still weary of the Mandalorian, they allow him into the cockpit where he determines that Jarael has been taken to Flashpoint: a research center where captured Jedi are taken and studied by Mandalorian biologist, Demagol.
The Mandalorian advises against an attack on Flashpoint, telling the group that Jarael cannot be rescued, and it would be better for them to just turn around and escape the war. Revealing his real name to be, Rohlan Dyre, the Mandalorian explains his reasons for desertion: he doesn’t understand the war and is on a quest to find the reasons behind it.
Meanwhile, on Flashpoint, Jarael is brought to a room with other Jedi awaiting testing by Demagol and starts a conversation with a Jedi named Squint. Aware that Jarael is not a Jedi, Squint offers himself as the next test subject to Demagol in order to spare her. As he is dragged away, he telepathically tells her that the Mandalorians have yet to discover all the powers a Jedi has.
