Synopsis:
Five thousand years before the birth of Luke Skywalker, young Gav and Jori Daragon accidentally set in motion one of the most devastating wars the galaxy has ever known. Fleeing trouble in the Koros system, which has been newly unified by the benevolent Empress Teta, Gav and Jori race into unexplored hyperspace, hoping to make their fortunes -- but their path lands them right into the heart of the awesome Sith Empire!

Taken prisoner by Sith Lords, Gav and Jori are used as pawns by the ambitious Naga Sadow -- who has just declared himself the new Dark Lord. The twins spend weeks hiding under Sadow's treacherous protection, while the Dark Lord begins training Gav in the Sith magic of illusions.

Naga Sadow has plans, though, to use the brother and sister as scapegoats: he wishes to expand the Sith Empire, to launch a war of conquest against the Republic -- but first he must defeat his deadly rival, Ludo crash. Dropping hints and planting spies, Sadow lures Kressh into attacking his seemingly vulnerable fortress. In the full devastation of battle, Naga Sadow separates Gav and Jori, forcing Jori to take their impounded ship, Starbreaker 12, to escape alone back to the heart of the Republic.

After Jori flees, Sadow springs his surprise on Ludo, wiping out the rival's fleet while Ludo himself barely escapes. Now with his opponent trounced, Sadow can move the military might of the Sith Empire on its greatest conquest -- against the unsuspecting Republic. A secret transmitter hidden in Jori's ship will show them exactly where to go...

Notes:
