The former King of Onderon is going to be executed by the Droid General and the current king of Onderon. After an ill-concocted solo effort to rescue the deposed King Ramsis Dendup by Saw, Steela, Lux Bonteri, and Ahsoka, with no help from the Republic, devise a plan to retrieve the King from the Palace. The plan fails but as the former King is about to be executed, the rebels are saved by General Tandin and the Onderonian milita. After allowing the rebels and his troops to escape General Tandin is in turn saved by Ahsoka. Now knowing the Jedi's involvement, Dooku grows impatient with his underlings.
