This book collects together the following comic stories:
  • Honor and Duty
    An important Senate vote is immanent, and a Senator from a small system is suddenly in possession of two things he never expected to have: the power of a "swing" vote, and a death threat! At the insistence of the Supreme Chancellor, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker are ordered to help protect the Senator - along with the Senator's regular team of Senate Guards. Ordinarily, four stalwart protectors would be more than enough to ensure the Senator's safety, but as the Jedi and the Guards discover, this situation is far from ordinary...
    Obi-Wan and Anakin have their hands full protecting Senator Greyshade from attacks by droid assassins, sky-bike riding Dug assassins, and beautiful assassin princesses with diplomatic immunity. Meanwhile, Autem and Omin, the two Senate Guards who are also on the Greyshade assignment, discover a common link among the assassins -- a link that strikes a little too close to home for Autem.
    Obi-Wan and Anakin's lightsabers are working overtime as they are confronted by assassins on all sides -- a beautiful princess with a penchant for deadly toys and exotic martial arts; a radio-pathic alien with specially-constructed battle droids; and a crazed Dug on a speeder bike. Meanwhile, the two Senate Guards assigned to the case are making disturbing discoveries about the person who hired the assassins. For one of the Guard's, "family ties" may be a noose that drags him to death and disgrace!
    Occurs approximately 8 years after the Battle of Naboo.

  • Loyalties
    Palpatine calls a meeting of his bravest, wisest, and most influential military officers in order to introduce them to his new right-hand man, Darth Vader!
    The new Emperor lays out his plans for his Empire, and those who have other ideas are dealt a swift lesson by Vader's blade. But one Captain wants nothing to do with the new government, and plans his defection. But what do you do when the Dark Lord of the Sith is determined to stop you?
    Occurs approximately months after the end of the Clone Wars.

These stories occur approximately 24 years and 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
