On the factory world of Ord Cestus, the native X'Ting have one hope for future solidarity and self-rule: locating and hatching the only remaining egg of the royal family. But few know the secrets of the egg's hiding place, and fewer still have the skills to pass the deadly gauntlet and open the impossible vault that protects the egg. And so Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi agrees to help them, knowing full well that failure could mean his death.

This short story takes place during the events of The Cestus Deception, approximately 21 years before the Battle of Yavin.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2014:

"The Hive is a short adventure Obi Wan had with a fellow X'Ting during the events of The Cestus Deception book. It is like a deleted scene added at the end and I have to admit it was a wise decision to not integrate this with the book itself. The story is, as the main book, enjoyable but this time even more skippable, although the stake is actually quite high for the natives of Cestus.
"If you have it, read it... if not, do not bother tracking it down."

Rating: 3 / 5
