Tales of the Jedi: The Fall of the Sith Empire 1: Desperate Measures is the first issue in the Tales of the Jedi: The Fall of the Sith Empire story arc in the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi series of comics. It was published on June 18, 1997 by Dark Horse Comics.
The Sith Empire has rallied its forces for an all-out battle for control of the galaxy. Their goal: Crush the Republic. And with so many Sith masters amongst them, the goal is not unachievable. As Naga Sadow readies his fleet to attack, one lone person threatens to undermine the entire campaign—Jori Daragon. She isn't a Jedi. She doesn't come from a military background or have a history of fighting. She's an explorer, a mapper of hyperspace who stumbled on the plans of the Sith. And she just may be the savior of the Republic.
Meanwhile, on Khar Delba, Ludo Kressh's flagship returns to Naga Sadow's decoy fortress. Sadow tells Gav Daragon, his reluctant apprentice, to push a button on the wall. He does so, causing Kressh's ship to explode in a globe of flame, presumably killing him.
