Synopsis


"Revenge is a confession of pain."

Newsreel:

Lethal trackdown! The young Boba Fett has taken the law into his own hands and made two attempts on the life of Mace Windu, the Jedi Master who killed his father. Boba's mentor, bounty hunter Aurra Sing, has taken three Republic officers hostage in an effort to force Windu to face Boba on their terms, a tactic that does not sit well with the young vigilante....

ACT I

A restless Boba Fett leaves the cockpit of the Slave I and checks on the bound and gagged Republic hostages. He loosens the gag on Admiral Kilian and offers the older officer a drink of water. Kilian tries to appeal to Fett's sense of decency, which agitates the boy. Aurra Sing barges in and begins beating the prisoners.

Meanwhile, in the Jedi Temple medical bay, Anakin and Mace share a recovery room. Skywalker suggests that Mace be proactive in tracking down Boba Fett, but Windu has no inclination to make a priority out of a personal vendetta. Plo Koon and Ahsoka Tano enter with news that they have received a transmission from the bounty hunters.

Master Plo plays the hologram of Boba and Aurra, armed, standing over the trio of Republic hostages. Boba calls out Mace specifically, ordering him to face him. Aurra orders Boba to kill one of the hostages, but the boy hesitates. Aurra has no delay. She shoots Commander Ponds, killing him.

Mace shows a renewed determination, but Plo Koon rightly says that Windu is too injured to travel. The masked Jedi Master will take up this assignment, with Ahsoka Tano by his side.

Aboard the Slave I, Aurra scolds Boba for not carrying through on her orders. The bounty hunters eject Ponds' lifeless body into the void of space before setting course for Florrum. Castas has had enough of this caper, and wants out. Disgusted by the spineless Klatooinian, Sing agrees to drop Castas off at their next destination.

On Coruscant, Master Plo identified one of the hunters in the hologram as Aurra Sing, a former associate of Jango Fett, and is following leads to any of Jango's compatriots. This leads Ahsoka and Plo beneath the planet's cosmopolitan surface. They ride an airspeeder into an enormous ventilation shaft that leads into the heart of the Coruscant underworld.

ACT II

Master Plo and Ahsoka pass through the entry terminal 24, a dock on the inner wall of the enormous ventilation shaft, and head deeper into areas known to once be frequented by Jango Fett. Meanwhile, the Slave I touches down on Florrum, and Aurra Sing gets reacquainted with Hondo Ohnaka, someone she has dated in the past. Hondo is pleased to see her, and greets Boba, telling the boy that he knew his father as an honorable man.

Hondo leads Boba, Aurra and Castas to a bar, where Castas parts company to make a long-distance call on a public holo-transceiver. The Klatooinian calls Fong Do, a Nautolan, and reports that his working arrangement with Aurra Sing has gone sour. Aurra overhears this conversation and shoots Castas dead before her former partner is able to sell her out. Fett witness this with great misgivings.

On Coruscant, Plo and Ahsoka inspect the fifth Coruscant tavern in the row. Plo Koon cautions Ahsoka to be cautious and try to remain subtle, and to keep her ears open for any clues. Master Plo speaks with the multi-armed bartender, Tiggs Leo, while Ahsoka eavesdrops into the various booths. She overhears a Nautolan talking to a Weequay about a murdered comrade on Florrum. The Nautolan mentions Aurra Sing's name before spotting Ahsoka lurking.

The thugs try to pin the Padawan but she escapes their grasp. Fong Do pulls out a pair of knives while other thugs nearby brandish blaster pistols. The room is suddenly silenced as Plo Koon ignites his lightsaber blade and orders the thugs to stand down. As a distraction, Ahsoka reaches into her tunic and pulls out a handful of credits, throwing them into the crowd. Though Plo chides Ahsoka for her un-subtle ways, she nonetheless has provided a solid lead to Florrum.

ACT III

On Florrum, Aurra brings Hondo up to speed on her predicament with Boba's vendetta and the Republic hostages. Hondo offers no help, but also says he does not plan to hinder Aurra either -- he will remain neutral in her affairs. Bossk radios Aurra Sing to report the approach of a Jedi shuttle. She orders Bossk to take the Slave I to the outskirts of the settlement. Boba is eager to face Mace Windu, whom he assumes is aboard the shuttle.

Plo Koon and Ahsoka land on Florrum. They are greeted by Hondo, who states plainly that Aurra Sing awaits them in the tavern. Hondo makes it clear he is not in on the deal. Plo Koon enters, and finds Aurra seated alone at the table. Sing is disappointed that it is not Mace Windu. Boba emerges from the shadows and holds a gun to Plo Koon's head. Plo hardly seems worried.

Aurra contacts Bossk at the Slave I, telling him to execute the hostages of she gives the word. Ahsoka springs from the shadows with her lightsaber ignited and shears off Aurra's cranial antenna. She holds Aurra at lightsaber-point. It's a stand off.

Boba fires at Ahsoka, forcing her to deflect the blast. That frees Aurra to fire off a pair of rocket darts from her boot, but Plo Koon slams the table up, blocking the projectiles. Aurra stands and draws both her blasters, unleashing a barrage on Ahsoka. Plo knocks aside Boba, and Force-pushes the table between Ahsoka and Aurra. Master Plo cuts apart Aurra Sing's weapons, and orders her to surrender. Boba Fett throws a bomb into the fray, letting Sing escape.

Sing runs away, and Boba tries to follow, but Plo Koon Force-pulls him back. To Fett's shock, Aurra keeps running, leaving him behind. The bounty hunter jumps on a speeder bike, and Ahsoka does likewise, giving chase into the desert badlands.

Plo tries to get Boba Fett to reveal the location of the hostages, but Fett refuses. Hondo Ohnaka advises Fett to do so, as it is what Jango would have wanted.

Aurra and Ahsoka twist and turn through the canyons of Florrum. Plo Koon transmits the coordinates of the hostages to Ahsoka. She breaks her chase, and speeds to the Slave I, where she fires her bike's laser cannons at Bossk, causing the lizard to drop his guard on the prisoners. Ahsoka frees the hostages, who promptly hold Bossk at gunpoint.

Aurra Sing comes crashing into the scene and dashes aboard the Slave I, powering up the ship for launch. Ahsoka jumps onto it as it lifts off. She slices off on the ship's stabilizers with her lightsaber. Aurra loses control of the Slave I and it crashes into the canyons.

Some time later, Boba Fett and Bossk are marched into a Republic prison on Coruscant. Fett is unrepentant. The shackled boy sees Mace Windu, and says he will never forgive the Jedi.
