SYNOPSIS
A sullustan smuggler, Feen Fenoob, is being pursued thru the bowels of a space station by Asa Naga and his partner Gargachykk, a one eyed, gray wookiee. It seems that Feen owes Vigo Darnada some money, and Asa and Garga are out to collect. Feen makes a break for it, but when Asa and Garga find him, it's in two parts!

They discover Darth Maul standing over the body, lightsaber lit. He bluntly tells them he wishes to join Black Sun and is upset quickly when Asa asks if he is a Jedi.

In Darnada's chamber, Hath Monchar tries too sell information about the return of the Sith to Black Sun. Darnada refuses to buy, citing the Sith are just a children's story, and has him thrown out. Asa enters and introduces Maul to the Dug. Darnada's bodyguard, Sinya, is not impressed with him and takes his lightsaber. Maul flatly states he has come to kill them all and uses the Force to retrieve his saber, slicing off Garga's head in the process.

Darnada calls for his guards and Sinya joins the fray as well. Maul makes short work of them all, ending by decapitating Sinya and skewering Darnada through his monocle.

Maul leaves only one person alive to tell the tale, Asa Naga. He races out of the station in a stolen Marauder corvette just before the the entire place explodes. Out of the fireball, the Sith Infiltrator bears down on his ship, turning invisible at the last moment. Scared, Asa heads off to inform the Master of Black Sun what has transpired.
