This timeline in this issue indicates the events of this series take place 33 years before A New Hope, while the online timeline indicates 33.5 years.
On the Yinchorri homeworld, Yinchorr, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi return from a reconnaissance mission, looking for possible central command posts. What they found was more of a staging area for an invasion.

Back on Yibikkoror, Micah Giiett, Plo Koon, Lilit Twoseas and K'kruhk fight off an onslaught on Yinchorri. Lilit nearly loses her head, but her padawan saves her. Micah pulls out his two lightsabers and makes quick work of a pair of soldiers. At that point, Adi Gallia and her team show up in their Republic cruiser. Adi directs Tsui Choi to take them up higher as Micah's team begins to climb a support balloon.

Micah cuts the balloon free and the begin to ascend. Eeth Koth tosses them a line and pulls the balloon closer to the ship. Plo, Lilit and K'kruhk make it into the cruiser just before the line snaps. Micah rises towards another group of flying Yinchorri and has only seconds to decide what to do. He lets go and plummets towards the cruiser; flying right into the tiny opening. He congratulates Master Choi on his splendid flying.

Soon Bayts, a black Jedi, brings word to Yoda and Yaddle that the Jedi teams have captured a Devaronian in the middle of the unrest in the Yinchorri system.

Darth Sidious contacts Vilmarh 'Villie' Grahrk to make sure that the prisoner that the Jedi took will not reveal their plans. Villie nervously agrees that he cannot, since he does not know the plans.

Onboard the Jedi cruiser, Master Giiett asks about their Devaronian prisoner. Adi Gallia tells him they have not had enough time to interrogate him when Plo Koon interrupts that Master Windu's team has been discovered.

Multitudes of Yinchorri are assaulting the plateau where Master Windu's team holds up. Master Giiett and Master Gallia's team leap out of their cruiser, into the fray. They manage to distract the Yinchorri warriors from Mace and company, but are rapidly being overcome. Plo Koon takes out a Yinchorri tank, as Mace, Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon join up with the other Jedi.

While attacking a Yinchorri, K'kruhk's lightsaber is doused by the cortosis shield worn by the warrior. Lilit leaps into protect him, slaying the Yinchorri, but not before another warrior spears her through. In a fit of anger, K'kruhk beheads three Yinchorri with one swing of his lightsaber. The remaining Jedi use a Force push to clear the area of Yinchorri as K'kruhk takes Lilit's limp body into the ship. Master Windu retreats with them, while Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Master Giiett, Master Tiin and Master Koon remain behind to cover them. As they run toward the ship, Mace tells them to be careful, as he wants no further casualties, seeing a haggard Adi Gallia and Tsui Choi over the bleeding form of Theen Fida.
