When the Republic loses contact with their troops on Orto Plutonia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are sent with their troops to learn what has become of them. They find mass destruction of not only the clones, but also a Seperatist droid base, leading the Jedi to conclude that they are dealing with something other than Seperatist activity. Chairman Cho, leader of nearby Pantora is more concerned about maintaining Pantora’s sovereignty over the planet. The Jedi must determine the nature of the hostile force on Orto Plutonia and whether they have a claim to the planet stronger than Pantora’s.
