A reskinning of John Harper's "Lady Blackbird" for the Star Wars universe. Three Jedi are dispatched to the Junkyard Planet of Kondu, to capture and bring in a renegade Padawan.
It is a time of troubles for the Jedi Knights. The peace and prosperity of the Republic have made the Order complacent. The Dark Side is everywhere.
NOW, word has arrived from the distant Outer Rim that the renegade padawan ORDO VALLUS has established a holdfast on the junk world of KONDU. The Jedi Council has hastily dispatched three Jedi aboard the starship BLACKBIRD.
Their mission: to bring Vallus back to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where he will stand trial. HOWEVER, as the expedition emerges from hyperspace, it is confronted by the fleet of vile Hutt corsair Bokka the Bold. Bokka broadcasts on all frequencies -- the Jedi are not welcome here!
