“Fear is a malleable weapon.”

A WAR ON TWO FRONTS

Separatist takeover complete! Another
Republic planet has fallen. Onderon
has seceded to the Confederacy of
Independent Systems under the rule of
a new king. However, a small band of
rebels have taken refuge deep within
the vast and savage wilderness.

From an abandoned outpost, they plot
to take back the heavily fortified
capital city of Iziz and end the
Separatist occupation….

Contacted by the rebels of Onderon, whose ranks include Ahsoka Tano’s friend Lux Bonteri, a native of that world, the Jedi High Council considers how to help them fight the Separatists. Anakin Skywalker’s suggestion is to train the rebels in subversive combat tactics, thus splitting the Separatist forces’ strength in a two-front confrontation. This proposal, however, is met with criticism by the Council, who fear that this would spawn the foundations of terrorism, and terror is a weapon the Jedi never wish to employ. Nevertheless, considering Anakin’s arguments, the Council sees no other way of aiding the Onderonians, and so Anakin, Ahsoka, and Rex depart for Onderon, accompanied by Obi-Wan Kenobi, who wishes to keep Anakin’s temper firmly on the ground in this endeavour.

Following their dropoff into Onderon’s wilderness, the group meets one of the rebel leaders, Steela Gerrera, and are taken to their base, where they also meet Saw Gerrera and Lux. The Jedi proceed to train the insurgents in effective combat techniques and teamwork. In the course of the training, a rivalry becomes apparent between Lux, who fights for the welfare of his homeworld, and Saw, who fancies himself the born leader of the rebellion. He considers Lux a weakling politician unfit for fighting and through the training Ahsoka becomes aware of this conflict. In addition, she becomes aware that Steela has a close personal interest in Lux.

As it turns out, the Jedi dropoff did not go unnoticed, and the Separatist occupation forces send out three recon droids to investigate. After locating the rebel base, a battle droid detachment is sent out to destroy them. The droids burst into the middle of a meme shooting drill session, forcing the Jedi and the rebels to fight their first battle together, in which Lux and Saw succeed in taking out an enemy tank together. Following this victory, the Jedi and the rebels plan a covert assault on the droids stationed in the capital city, Iziz. Sneaking into the city, disguised as a group of hunters and foragers, they split up to secure vital supplies. When Anakin professes his pleasure at his suggestion in training the rebels, Obi-Wan answers with cautious enthusiasm, expressing himself with the term “hopeful.”
