This book collects together the following comic stories:

  • Prophet Motive
    The beginning of a whole new era for loner Jedi Zayne Carrick launches our clever, clumsy hero, his con-artist best friend Gryph, and the bold Jarael.
    Gryph's got a plan to part some shady-dealing Chev from their unjustly earned credits, but he'll need more than a disguise to protect him when they catch on to his game!
    Former Padawan Zayne Carrick's new life takes a turn for the worse as a con gone wrong puts his friends in a deadly predicament! Fleecing the corrupt financial exchange on Metellos 3 seemed like a victimless crime to Zayne's friends Jarael and Rohlan -- until they became the victims! Now prisoners of a galactic criminal syndicate, Jarael and Rohlan must find a way to survive long enough for Zayne and his conniving cohort Gryph to rescue them!

  • Faithful Execution
    Zayne Carrick and his crewmates Jarael, Slyssk, and the Mandalorian Rohlan investigate a pleasure cruise gone wrong! Something horrible has happened aboard the Chancellor Fillorean; the former luxury ship now drifts aimlessly in a space nebula. Upon boarding the ghost ship, a host of asphyxiated passengers and two lone survivors -- a tiny alien and his fierce droid bodyguard -- are all that are found. Zayne and his friends must solve the mystery and find what has been causing the tragic and disturbing deaths -- before they also become victims.

  • Dueling Ambitions
    Combat sports and high-speed racing in the Old Republic! Zayne and Gryph, now partners in "crime", along with Jarael and Rohlan, prepare to rip off the big-business world of sport dueling. Gryph has himself in the perfect position for the con, until Zayne enters himself into the Open, Jarael becomes oddly distracted, and even Rohlan finds himself taking part in the duels. If that weren't enough, veteran warrior Goethar Kleej inexplicably forces upon Zayne an incredible handicap.
    Zayne is entered in the "Dueling Duo" Tandem Open, and he has had a special handicap forced on him by threat of death! Aubin, the inexperienced, backward son of a veteran warrior-hero will be his partner in the preliminary battles! Zayne must make sure his partner survives the duels until the last round -- but he can't figure out what is behind Aubin's entrance in the battles. That is, until Jarael discovers that what drives the duel sports is a slavery-based "farm system" that provides the warriors.
    Jarael, Gryph, Rohlan, and Zayne must save Aubin and bring exposure to what horrors lie beneath the surface of the duels.
    It is championship day at the dueling Open: Zayne struggles to protect his inept partner in the duels while simultaneously trying to convince the boy's warrior father that he and his friends have a plan to save them and stop the slave "farm system." Meanwhile, Gryph and Jarael set the team's plan into action, doing their best to avoid the duel official's security.

This story occurs approximately 3963 years before the Battle of Yavin.
