The Photonovel Alliance


Qui-Gon Jinn was the first to follow Darth Maul into the Theed Power Generator.

Darth Maul was indeed a fine match for him.

Qui-Gon was momentarily stunned when Maul smashed his lightsaber handle against his chin…

…giving the Sith the advantage to make his final move against Jinn.

Smoke emitted from a burn-mark in Qui-Gon’s chest.

“No!” Obi-Wan Kenobi screamed, now in a wild rage, his moves ferocious.

To the Sith’s own anger, he saw that his double-bladed lightsaber only bore one blade.

The duel began! The Sith was relentless in his attacks against the young Jedi.

Day-blue and scarlet bars of plasma met.

Catching Obi-Wan off guard, Darth Maul pushed him…

…into a melting pit!

The Padawan just managed to grap onto a red nozzle on the side of a pit, preventing him from falling all the way down.

Above, Darth Maul stared down at him with an evil smile.

He had lost his lightsaber in the fall, so he was unarmed, and if he’d jump he’d be killed.

But then, there was Qui-Gon’s lightsaber…

With a plan already plotted, Obi-Wan leaped.

At the last moment, Qui-Gon’s lightsaber went straight into his hand!

And Darth Maul…


Obi-Wan rushed over to his dying Master.

“It’s too late…” Qui-Gon panted. “…it’s…”

“No!” Obi-Wan gasped.

“Obi-Wan, promise me you will train the boy.”

“Yes, Master.”

“He… …is the Chosen One. He… …will bring balance to the Force.”

Obi-Wan wept over his dying Master, whose eyes slowly began to close, and skin started to thin. With a last effort, Qui-Gon Jinn said: “Train him.”

And then he died.

Meanwhile, Queen Amidala and her troops had successfully located Viceroy Gunray.

It seemed a very small number of battle droids were protecting Gunray, as most of them had been ordered to fight the Gungans outside.

“And now, Viceroy, your trading game has ended,” said Amidala.

“Oh, don’t be absurd!” the Neimoidian Viceroy countered, though he was plainly frightened. “There are too few of you. It won’t be long before hundreds of destroyer droids break in to rescue me.”

There was an echoing boom! outside, and then out the window debris falled from the sky following more explosions that seemed to be loud, yet far away.

And all at once, everywhere on Naboo, every battle droid turned off.

Amidala smiled. “Viceroy, your droid control ship appears to have been destroyed.”

Darth Maul had been defeated by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Viceroy Nute Gunray had been taken into custody, and Anakin Skywalker had destroyed the Droid Control Ship. The Droid Control Ship had been controlling the battle droids,and so when it was destroyed the battle droids were deactivated. The battle for Naboo was over.

Later, newly-elected Chancellor Palpatine arrived on the planet to congrajulate Queen Amidala.

“Congratulations on your election, Chancellor,” Queen Amidala said. “It is so good to see you again.”

“It’s good to be home,” said Palpatine. “Your boldness has saved our people, Your Majesty. It is you who should be congratulated! Together we shall bring peace and prosperity to the Republic.”

Palpatine then turned to Anakin. “Ah, yes, and young Skywalker… …we shall look into your career with great interest.”

The following night, Obi-Wan was having a tense debate with Jedi Master Yoda about Anakin’s future.

“Confer on you, the level of Jedi Knight the Council does,” said Yoda, “but agree with you taking this boy as your Padawan learner, I do not.”

“Qui-Gon believed in him. I believe in Qui-Gon.”

Yoda sighed. “The Chosen One the boy may be; nevertheless, grave danger I fear in his training.”

“Master Yoda, I gave Qui-Gon my word. I will train Anakin. Without the approval of the Council, if I must.”

“Qui-Gon’s defiance I sense in you. Need that, you do not. Agree with you, the Council does… …your apprentice, Skywalker will be.”

The day after the Republic’s victory on Naboo, Idnum-Ki, Burt Drewton, and Larry Drewton had also arrived.

Burt and Larry would stay on Naboo, as it was their homeworld. But Idnum-Ki’s duties were with the Jedi on Coruscant, or wherever else they sent him.

And so they said goodbye… …until the next time they met, if that would ever happen.
