The Photonovel Alliance

Following the memorial for Adi Gallia, Jedi Master Saesee Tiin and Commander EZ are ordered to begin searching for the Separatist Leaders in the Outer Rim.


Epsilon: Did you hear the rumor? Grievous is supposed to be hiding out here in the Outer Rim. And we were the battalion chosen to find him!


Zeta: Really? In that case, care to make a friendly wager? First one to find Grievous, wins…and loser does the winner’s cleaning detail for a month.

Epsilon: You’re on!

Commander EZ: Pipe down, troopers! We’re about to land. Gather your weapons.

Epsilon & Zeta: Yes, sir.

Commander EZ: This is a reconnaissance mission, not a war party. And any more mention of gambling will be reported directly to the Chancellor’s office, is that understood?

Epsilon & Zeta: YES, SIR!!!

Commander EZ: Epsilon and Zeta have volunteered themselves to begin the search. I will remain on board and monitor their progress.

Saesee Tiin: No.

Commander EZ: But General, scouting is a job for troopers…not Commanders. I suggest we remain with the Gunship in case—

Saesee Tiin: No.

Commander EZ: But what if —

Saesee Tiin: No! We will all participate in this mission, Commander.

Eta: General Tiin, we are approaching the landing zone. Scanners have picked up a large life-form, moving East.

Saesee Tiin: Pay no mind to it. We are looking for small pathetic, life-forms, such as Nemodians. Begin the landing process.

Eta: Yes, General.

Saesee Tiin: Are your men ready, Commander?

Commander EZ: Yes, General. We have a full squad of nine.

Commander EZ: Impossible Jedi.

Theta: Yes, sir.


Theta: Hey……

Commander EZ: Watch it……you call that a landing?? Pilot, I shall report you to the—

Iota: That wasn’t us, sir. We were already on the ground when that tremor occurred.

Commander EZ: Are we under attack?!

Iota: No, sir. The vibration resonated from the ground. Scanners indicate the shockwave came from the large life-form.

Commander EZ: Then, this mission just got more complicated. Keep an eye on the life-form, pilot. Let’s go, trooper.

Theta: Yes, sir.

Kappa: All clear, sir. No sign of any droids.

Theta: What planet is this?

Commander EZ: Don’t worry about that, trooper. The sun is beginning to rise.

Saesee Tiin: Then we should move quickly.


Commander EZ: Another tremor……hold on…….

Epsilon: What is that thing?!

Commander EZ: That shockwave was stronger than the previous one.

Saesee Tiin: The creature is just testing us. Ignore it, and it will ignore you. Keep your focus on the task at hand.

Commander EZ: Pilots, remain with the Avenger. We’ll be in contact.

Iota: Yes, sir.

Commander EZ: You heard the General. Let’s move out, troopers.

Eta: Sir, scanners have picked up something……this direction.

Theta: I have it on my scope……we have confirmation……a battle droid.

Commander EZ: Good, our first catch of the day.

Theta: There’s only one. No wonder the Avenger didn’t see him, sir.

Commander EZ: The Droid Army must have just arrived. They’re setting up their radar.

Commander EZ: Trooper, call for reinforcements.

Theta: Yes, sir.

Saesee Tiin: No. Hold your position.

Saesee Tiin: Let’s follow him.

Saesee Tiin: A single battle droid couldn’t have wandered far from the other droids.

Commander EZ: You’re right, General. More droids straight ahead.

Commander EZ: They’re setting up another radar station. Only a few droids though.

Commander EZ: Their base should be nearby—

(A tree branch snaps!)

Battle Droid: Intruders! Open fire!

Commander EZ: Troopers…Fire!!! Fire!!! Fire!!!

Theta: They’re down, sir!

Eta: Not all of them……destroyer droid!

Commander EZ: Let the Jedi handle that one.


Commander EZ: General, there is no doubt that the Separatists are here. We must call for reinforcements.

Saesee Tiin: Not yet, Commander. We still don’t know why they’re here, or how big their droid army is. Perhaps this will give us a clue.

Saesee Tiin: This is no radar station……it’s a turret. Specifically, an anti-aircraft turret. The Separatists are building a base.

Saesee Tiin: Commander, have your men destroy these turrets. We must find the base quickly.

Commander EZ: Yes, General.


Theta: What about that creature, sir?

Commander EZ: We may have to do some exterminating. But first, tell Central Command to have a battalion ready to deploy. Have them monitor the system for arriving Trade Federation ships.

Commander EZ: Tell them we found something……in the Oner System.
