The planet of Christophsis has found itself under attack from Separatist forces and Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker have been sent with their clone troops to defend it. But they soon realize that their security has been breached and they reason that there must be a spy in their midst. While the Jedi infiltrate the enemy’s position, it is up to Commander Cody and Captain Rex to ferret out the traitor before the entire mission is compromised.
