On Tatooine during A New Hope, when Luke Skywalker asks Obi-Wan Kenobi about his father, Obi-Wan has a flashback to the Battle of Terra Sool during the Clone Wars. Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan are helping the Terra Sool militia to overthrow the Separatist occupation. When the CIS attempts to BDZ the planet, Anakin destroys the missiles and Obi-Wan remarks that the learner has become the master. The story returns to the 'present,' where Darth Vader looks down on the clothes from Obi-Wan onboard the Death Star, right after the famous Line: "when I left you I was but the learner, now I am the master".
Hide in Plain Sight
The comic is set five months after the Battle of Geonosis, and chronicles the Battle of Nadiem. In this comic, Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barriss Offee go to a small village on Nadiem. When a man tries to sneak all his belongings, after the villagers were told not to take any, onto a transport, Unduli discovers him and teaches Offee about hiding in plain sight. Offee then goes to find a group of refugees and learns of a squad of clone commandos plans to set off denotators to stop an incoming Confederacy of Independent Systems force. Offee goes to the spot with the clones and they all pretend to be dead when a CIS scout comes, thus hiding in plain sight. Unduli does not think she's alive but attacks the CIS force anyway with her own Galactic Republic force. Offee then reveals herself to her master by setting off the trap, thus winning the battle.
Run Mace Run
On an unnamed planet, Mace Windu's LAAT is shot down, and with his clone troopers dead, runs to disable the prototype Planet Killer before its creators can show it to Count Dooku.
Asajj Ventress and Durge are searching a large spacecraft on which Darth Tyranus has told them he senses some presence. They enter a hall filled with many trophies of battle, and approach one another from opposite directions, having split-up and secured any exits from the hall.
Durge is attacked by a deadly combination of baleful life and advanced technology he later learns is named Grievous. Ventress joins the battle but she too is eventually bested by this new monster. Returning to his mentor Tyranus with the pair of battered bodies, he is told he has passed his test, and is ordered to put Durge and Ventress in bacta tanks to allow them to heal.
Two clone commando squads are assigned the dangerous task of retrieving a mysterious package, intended for Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Dispatched to Ord Mantell, White Squad (led by RC-1013 "Sarge") and Blue Squad attempt to intercept a gang of mercenary Trandoshans.
The Trandoshans kill Blue Squad and are pursued by White Squad to a meeting with Separatist battle droid forces. The ill-fated White Squad is whittled down to just Sarge, who tackles and executes the lead Trandoshan with his combat knife.
Upon receipt of the package, Palpatine privately reveals it is a worthless trinket. The commandos have given their lives for nothing.
On an unknown planet, nine clone troopers are the remainder of their force. A weakening force field is all that protects them from an army of thousands of battle droids. As the force field breaks, the droid army immediately marches in and demands surrender. The clones choose to go out fighting, and their resilience pays off when a smoking Republic gunship drops out of the air. Plo Koon jumps out, and although the clones cannot understand him, they comprehend enough to shoot a rope at a massive Separatist weapon, providing a small bridge for the Jedi Master. Koon, effortlessly wielding his lightsaber, quickly destroys the machine, and the remainder of the Separatist forces. As he leaves, he drops one last comment, which the clones understand: "One battle, one Jedi."
Another Fine Mess
On the planet Bri'ahl, C-3PO once again finds himself in a dreadful position, courtesy of R2-D2. The astromech droid, claiming to have the abilities needed to pilot a Bri'ahlian Sky-sled, failed miserably at his task of transportation, resulting in a beheaded C-3PO. Attempting to right matters, R2-D2 triggers an avalanche, incurring the wrath of the local fauna. Below the two droids, a small group of Bri'ahlian rebels gathered around a fire. Openly talking of their loathing for Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala and Bri'ahl President Vuul, the group forms a plan to disguise themselves as clone troopers to infiltrate the palace and assassinate the two. As soon as the plan was finished, the rebels are momentarily dispatched by two falling droids, batted away by a huge beast. C-3PO and R2-D2 continue to wreak havoc as they mistakenly come across the group of disguised rebels. Reaching across to shake hands with the commander, C-3PO's malfunctioning hand crashes into the visor, starting a false attack alarm. Thinking that the enemy is among them, the troopers quickly destroy each other. Wandering away from the carnage, the two droids finally obtain directions to the palace. As Gregar Typho explains to Amidala that the bodies of rebels have been found, the droids stagger into the room. Unaware of their actions, Amidala scolds them for not remaining in palace grounds. Remarking that "at least you came back in one piece", Amidala's expression turns to one of amusement as C-3PO's head falls off.
While waiting for orders in the Outer Rim Territories, Anakin Skywalker locks on to a weak distress signal. Leaving without Obi Wan's permission, Anakin arrives at a seemingly abandoned space station. While investigating inside, Anakin finds that all of the men that were on the station are dead. Eventually, Anakin meets another Jedi, Serra Keto. She tells him that they need to leave, but Anakin insists that they press on. They are attacked by pink blobs with metal on their backs. Anakin kills them, however, they come back to life and start scurrying to another room. They follow it, and they find two huge spider droids, made completely from the pink blobs. Thinking fast, Anakin uses the Force to break open a hole in the wall, sucking out the spider droids, but also breaking the station. The two manage to escape just in time, however.
On the planet Garqi, Aiwha Squad (led by RC-1013 "Sarge") assumes responsibility for an orphaned farmer kid named Evan. Aiwha must escort him through hostile territory, while trying to help him understand their own strange lives of honor and sacrifice.
Finally reaching a Galactic Republic outpost, the commandos receive Order 66 and are forced to kill Jedi Master Tra'avis in front of Evan's eyes. The boy is left wondering if he really understands the commandos at all.
Shortly after Order 66 was executed, Triton Squad was given a new order: destroy the Wookiees. Approaching a group of elders and pups, the clone troopers are met with an unpleasant surprise as Tarfful and Chewbacca swoop down with a team of warriors. Engaging in ferocious combat, the Wookiee team soon drops down into the Shadowlands of Kashyyyk, leaving the Triton Squad to follow. Setting a maze of traps involving local creatures, the Wookiees soon narrow the squad down to a few troopers, quickly dispatched by an ambush. After the carnage, Chewbacca and Tarfful remark on how there will be many more battles to come.
What Goes Up...
Aayla Secura and Commander Bly investigate a deserted Separatist outpost in the Endor system. After discovering the base to be empty,(and finding remains of countless clone troopers and battle droids) Secura goes out scouting where she encounters a lone battle droid. Disposing it's appendages, Secura is caught unaware by the native Ewoks and is shot with a tranquilizer dart. Waking up in a treehouse, Secura uses the battle droid as a translator, who sarcastically informs her that she is thought to be a forest spirit. As a spirit, it is her duty to vanquish the Beast in the Mouth of the Mountain. Secura, taking the droid along, complies. Reaching the cave, the Jedi Knight trips on a pile of bones, alerting the Beast to her presence. The Beast quickly impales the battle droid with its claw, leaving Secura free to work on collapsing parts of the ceiling upon the monster. Fulfilling her duty as the Ewok's spirit, the Knight returns to the Republic gunship, where Bly is waiting. Dismissing her commander's worries, the pair, along with their squadron, heads to Felucia.
On the Tantive IV, Bail Organa holds a conference with Raymus Antilles and Sheltay Retrac. Antilles voices his concern about the lack of Jedi accompanying them, and Organa dismisses his captain's worries with a wave of his hand. The trio soon land on Metalorn to meet with the Techno Union Foreman, Wat Tambor. Clearly excited at Organa's interest in joining the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Tambor leads the group on a tour of his highest accomplishments: the Wasteland and his stockades. Antilles takes his cue to leave upon reaching the stockades, and after a brief tour Tambor leads them to the real prize of his city: an incredibly secure prison block, unused but for their most dangerous prisoner, Jedi Master Shaak Ti. Organa, knowing at last the whereabouts of his goal, throws the box he has been carrying around into the air. Using the Force, Ti ignites the lightsaber within. Fighting their way through droidekas and battle droids, they finally reach the ship, where Antilles safely pilots them off the planet. On the Tantive IV, Ti tells Organa that if he ever needs anything he should contact her. Organa agrees, not knowing that he will use this promise in the not too distant future.
