On Geonosis, Jedi Knight Jyl Somtay, former Padawan of Lura Tranor (who was killed during the Geonosis arena battle), is working amid the catacombs of the planet, trying to find any leftover enemy technology. She is working alongside Dr. Frayne, who is supposed to be helping the Republic to find that technology. Upon locating a stash, though, Frayne turns on Jyl, intending to make a tidy profit on her find. She brings in her associate, Naj Pandoor, a smuggler, whom she quickly double-crosses. Jyl and Naj are left to fend for themselves when they awaken from a stun blast. They are forced to work together to find the weapon stash, where they discover Frayne’s body. She’s been slain by local creatures. After battling a few of those creatures themselves, it seems that the two might make a good team (if she doesn’t turn Naj over to the authorities). When Naj turns on her, intending on securing his own freedom, she knocks him out and takes him unto custody yet again.

This story occurs just after the Battle of Geonosis, approximately 22 years before the Battle of Yavin.
