Ahsoka Tano has been captured and must face trial for sedition, murder, and destructive acts of terrorism. As the Galactic Republic military seeks justice, Ahsoka feels increasingly abandoned by the Jedi Council.
Representing the Republic in Ahsoka Tano's trial is Admiral Tarkin. A zealous patriot, Tarkin has come to believe that the Jedi have overstepped their authority -- and ability -- as leaders in the military. He demands the severest punishment for Ahsoka's crimes: the death penalty.
Suspicions turn to Ventress when reports surface that Ahsoka was seen colluding with the known Separatist war criminal. But Ventress herself was attacked by an unknown assailant, and has yet a role to play in this conspiracy.
