Escaping from Asajj Ventress's fortress, Obi-Wan Kenobi and the clone trooper Alpha are pursued by Separatists and bounty hunters. Crash landing on a desolate planet, they are soon cornered. The bounty hunters give Alpha a choice: walk away from the fight, or die with his Jedi companion. Will Alpha's "live to fight another day" training win out? Or can the Force reveal another way to survive the ordeal before time runs out?
