Plot Summary

Episode 9
Diabolical defeat! Though Republic victories
outnumber their losses, the Jedi have been
unable to stop Separatist advances in the
Outer Rim. The ever-elusive General
Grievous stays one step ahead of his
opponents. With thousands of droid armies
at his command, the Jedi can never predict
where Grievous will strike next until now...

Grievous' destroyer boards Master Eeth Koth's flagship, and Grievous enters the ship with commando droids. The attackers kill clone troopers, but Koth manages to defend himself. MagnaGuards soon join the battle and Grievous ultimately subdues Koth.

The Jedi on Coruscant receive a holo-transmission from Grievous, in which they notice Koth's hand gestures telling them that Grievous' ship is in the Saleucami system. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Adi Gallia thus set out to rescue Eeth Koth. The ships under Kenobi's command, including a light cruiser and three frigates, emerge from hyperspace when Grievous is preparing to land on Saleucami. The Republic engages Grievous' fleet and a space battle ensues. Grievous pulls Kenobi's cruiser in with a tractor beam, while Anakin, having received updated coordinates, comes out of hyperspace right above Grievous' destroyer, and he, Adi Gallia and a clone trooper squad break into the ship.

Obi-Wan and Cody fight commando droids, MagnaGuards and eventually Grievous. Grievous tells Obi-Wan that he is aware of Skywalker's concurrent rescue mission, and finally Grievous and his droids overpower Kenobi. Anakin, and Adi locate Koth captured in a containment field, but the T-series tactical droid overseeing him was expecting them and summons commando droids. The droid then sends electric waves through Koth, but the Jedi ultimately manage to destroy the all the droids present and release Koth.

Meanwhile, the fight between Kenobi and Grievous continues, but soon, Grievous escapes. Obi-Wan informs Anakin and Adi, the latter of whom goes to intercept him, while the other carries Koth to his shuttle. Grievous gives orders to fire on the Republic light cruiser's engines and heads for his own ship. In the docking tube, Kenobi catches up to him, but Grievous escapes again. Grievous arrives at his destroyer, but there, Adi Gallia engages him in a brief duel, before the docking tube is torn open, creating a powerful suction. Grievous climbs aboard his ship using his metallic claws, and Gallia extends a cable to Cody and Kenobi, allowing them to get to safety. Anakin then picks up Obi-Wan, Adi and Cody in his shuttle from the destroyer's hangar.

Grievous and his ship's infantry droids board landing ships set for Saleucami, and the Republic light cruiser eventually explodes. Obi-Wan then plans to descend onto Saleucami with Rex and Cody to look for Grievous.
