Opening crawlEdit

The Trial of Ulic Qel-Droma
Exar Kun has lured a group of other Jedi – including his former training partner, Crado, and Master Thon’s apprentice, Oss Wilum – who are curious to see Kun’s much-touted new knowledge. He takes them to his secret hideout on Yavin Four, where he shows them the forbidden Sith Holocron. Claiming he is about to remove the taint of the dark side, Kun smashes the Holocron as the Jedi gather around – but the shards fly outward as if with minds of their own, containing the residue of Sith sorcerers from a forgotten age. The shards strike the unwitting Jedi and are absorbed in a whirlwind of images from the Stih Golden Age. Kun tells his “possessed” converts that the other Jedi will resist, but together they will show the Republic never to underestimate the power of the Sith!

Meanwhile, eager for a decisive military victory, Ulic Qel-Droma decides to strike Coruscant, the capital world itself! With his self-centered lover, Aleema, and his masked general, Mandalore, Ulic launches the assault. What he does not know, however, is that a group of Jedi Knights – including his brother, Cay, and his friend, Nomi Sunrider, along with Master Vodo-Siosk Baas – have come to Coruscant to stop him. Ulic, unknowing, goes forward with a small force to certain capture, while Aleema abandons him and grabs the position of power for herself. She orders a reluctant Mandalore to retreat, claiming that Ulic has been killed.

In the command center, Ulic finds himself without allies and unable to defeat the Jedi Knights. A prisoner, he is hauled off by the leader of the Republic Senate, who vows to bring Ulic to trial immediately, and execute him as a traitor!
