The Dark Lord that Tomcat kills was using the lightsaber of the dead Jedi Zor Vlahu, who was mentioned as dead in the previous issue.
SYNOPSIS
Dawn, at the camp of the Jedi on Ruusan. Jord Hoth asks Pernicar about his reason for joining the Jedi. Pernicar says his father forced him into it, but he would have much rather been a scribe. Hoth shares that his dream was to single-handedly defat the Sith. However, the galaxy changed him.

As the bugle boy awakens everyone to the new day, Tomcat is grousing about the supposed 'Army of Light.' He looks at their situation, which is tired and muddy, and judges them to be less than the Jedi of legend. He compares them to Torr, which causes Bug to jump to the fallen Jedi's defense.

The camp cook tells the boys to stop arguing and says they have been assigned to help him push the chow wagon. Tomcat is affronted by this. He is a Jedi. He is here to fight. The cook asks him to show him what he's got, and make short work of Tomcat. The kids then start playing catch with Tomcat's dropped saber, while Tomcat cries for them to stop. Bug hands the upset Tomcat back his saber and Tomcat storms off upset into the forest.

Elsewhere in the forest their cousin Rain is still being to tended to by the "bouncer", Laa. Laa tells her that nad dreams are killing other members of his race. She promises to protect Laa with the Force. As she goes to demonstrate, she finds that she cannot move objects as she had on Somov Rit.

On Tomcat's angry walk, he runs into Kiel Charny's battle group. Charny asks Tomcat to join him, and Tomcat quickly accepts. At the battle front Rajan points out the advancing Sith army to Charny, who wishes that Valenthyne was here to help. Tomcat questions Valenthyne's assistance, but Charny reminds him that he shouldn't believe everything he hears.

As the Sith approach, Rajan gives a small prayer, saying that they "fight because they must," which Tomcat quickly picks up on. Suddenly the Sith are upon them. Heroes on both sides fall. Tomcat eliminates several of the minions, to his enjoyment, before being confronted by a Dark Lord.

Using his fear and anger, he quickly strikes the Dark Lord down. Charny and Rajan quickly realize that these are not real dark lords, and they wonder where can the true Sith be.

On a plateau overlooking the forest, Darth Bane is leading the Sith Lords in a meditation of sorts. Gathering the dark side energies through themselves and focusing that power towards the Army of Light.

Rain awakens from a dream she and her cousins were all alive. She seems startled that Laa is sad. Laa tells her that bad, death dreams are coming.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
