Publisher's summary

The Sith invasion rages on, as the dark side of the Force takes the upper hand over the Old Republic. But Dark Lord Naga Sadow is about to learn that winning a battle is not the same as winning a war!

Plot summary

Gav Daragon flees the attack of his sister Jori, and flies to Primus Goluud, Jori trailing behind him. Gav fires on Naga Sadow's meditation sphere, floating high above the red supergiant, causing much of the Sith forces on Coruscant to fade, being merely an illusion made to give off the impression of a much larger army. With this knowledge, the Republic forces and Jedi are able to defeat the Massassi warriors. Sadow lures Gav into his meditation sphere, but when Gav arrives, the Dark Lord is nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, as the Battle of Kirrek rages on, Ooroo shatters his own cyanogen tank, spreading the fumes across the battlefield and into the nostrils of hundreds of Massassi, killing them in seconds. However, being a Celegian, Ooroo dies soon after, poisoned by the oxygen in the air. But his sacrifice was not in vain, as the prisoners from Ronika arrive to assist the Koros troops, turning the tide in their favor, and soon winning the battle.

Above Primus Goluud, a fleet of Teta's ships led by the Empress herself and Jori Daragon arrive, soon followed by Naga Sadow's fleet. Gav transmits the Sith Empire coordinates to Teta, as Sadow uses a superweapon attached to his ship to activate several solar flares on Primus Goluud's surface. The Sith fleet flees, and Teta's ships do the same. Gav, unable to pilot the severely damaged meditation sphere, is killed in the explosion.
