#0: Odan Urr, Jedi knight, is sent to Empress Teta of the Koros system.  Empress Teta is forming the trade alliance with her seven worlds, through a unification war.  Odan, who has studied extensively the history of the Jedi, introduces battle meditation to aid Empress TetaGav & Jori’s parents are killed in the war of Empress TetaMention is made of the great Schism of the dark side & the light side, which happened a long time before this story begins. 

 

# 1: Gav & Jori Daragon are trying to map new hyperspace routes.  They owe money to Aarba the Hutt.  One of their routes turns out to destroy a ship filled with cargo. Ssk Kahor is out quite a lot of cargo.  Boy are they in trouble. As they run for their lives, they steal their ship back from Aarba, and blast off to the unknown.

 

 #2: Gav & Jori have happened upon the planet Korriban (a planet in the Sith Empire).  We see a funeral procession for Marka Ragnos, Sith lord.  Ludo Kressh, (who holds to the old ways) and Naga Sadow, (who experiments with new dark magic) fight to be the next Sith lord.  Marka Ragnos comes back from netherworld to warn them that the fate of the empire is in their hands.

 

 #3: On Ziost,  a Sith council decides what to do with Gav & Jori, as they are viewed as spies & a precursor to war with the republic.  Ludo Kressh & Naga Sadow are at odds.  We are told of Ancient Simus who lost his duel against Ragnos but used his Sith powers to keep himself alive; Simus is also advising on this council.    Frustrated by their doing nothing, Sadow plots the break out Jori & Gav and make it look like a republic military raid.  He kills Old Simus (AKA the head in a jar.)  Naga Sadow is voted the new Dark Lord, and Kressh leaves, refusing to join in his plans to strike the republic.

 

#4: Empress Teta, with Odan Urr  go to Coruscant to give the warning of Odan Urr’s prophetical dream of the Sith lords returning, (nobody cares).  Meanwhile, on Sadow’s hidden fortress, he has separated Gav & Jori & begun teaching them the dark side.  Sadow hijacks the Starbreaker 12, (Gav & Jori’s ship) and plants evidence so Kressh will know that it was he, (Sadow) who stole it. 

 

#5:   Ludo Kressh attacks Sadow’s fortress (ss Sadow hoped he would.)  In the attack, Sadow tells Jori that she must return on the Starbreaker12 to her home.  Sadow brings out forces from his hidden fortress on the dark side of the moon.  End Scene: a homing device on Starbreaker 12.

#1:Jori returns to Cinnagar, (in the empress Teta system) only to be arrested as she rants about the Sith Empire coming.  No one will listen of course.  Back on Khar Delba, (the once secret fortress of Naga Sadow), Sadow is planning an attack on the Republic.  He is trying to persuade Gav to join him, by playing on his suffering under the Republic.  He tricks Gav into destroying Ludo Kressh.  Cut to Cinnagar: Odan Urr is visited by Master Ooroo, who informs him that the Jedi believe his visions.  Empress Teta prepares for this war with the Sith Empire.

 

#2: Jori is sentenced to work on a colony world.  Her ship is repossessed by Ssk KahorrNago Sadow prepares a fleet to wage war on the Republic.  He speaks of his meditation sphere.  On the colony world, Jori steals a drone shuttle, and ends up in Empress Teta’s castle.  Jori gives empress Teta an amulet from the Sith lords.  Teta decides to prepare for the coming battle.  Near Khar Shain: Sadow appoints Gav to the bridge to command the fleet.  Sadow retreats to his meditation sphere.  He is using old, forbidden Sith ways.  Concentrating on the fact that much of his attack will be a mere illusion.

#4: Sadow & his meditation chamber are at Primus Goluud, (an unstable red star,) cooking up magical illusions. Gav fires on Naga Sadow.  This shows the reality of the troops attacking Coruscant are weak.  Their image flickers…  Coruscant defeats the troops.  Sadow tricks Gav into coming in the meditation sphere, and imprisons him there.  Back on Kirrek: Master Ooroo sends everyone to shelter; he breaks his glass enclosure, releasing his toxic cyanogenic atmosphere on the Massasi, killing them and himself.  Jori & Empress Teta hone in on Gav’s signal at the red star.  Sadow triggered the explosion of the star.   Moments before his destruction, Gav sends Jori and Empress Teta the coordinates for the Sith Empire. 

 

#5: Sadow returns, defeated, to the Sith Empire only to find out he has been banished by Ludo Kresshthe new Dark Lord who had faked his death with a decoy ship earlier.  But in the ensuing battle, one of Sadow’s ships rams into Kressh’s ship.  Jori and their warships arrive to battle Sadow.  He is almost defeated, but he feigns his own death with a false explosion.  Empress Teta and Jori return home.  Odan Urr visits the abandoned Sith ships left in their system and finds a unique holocron.  He plans to build a giant library of Jedi knowledge on OssusSadow lands on Yavin to start anew.  Empress Teta rewards Jori with Aarba’s repair dock.
