Plot Summary

Jedi General Aayla Secura and Clone Commander Bly are ambushed by the Separatists in Munificent-class star frigates, when, in drastic need for reinforcements, Jedi General Anakin Skywalker got their distress call. By the time Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and Clone Captain Rex arrived to the atmospheric battle, the leading Separatist Tactical Droid had already sent out B2-RP Super Battle Droids (Rocket Droids) to attack Aayla's ship and the newly arrived Republic Venator-class star destroyer.

When the Jedi arrived on board the critically damaged ship, they made their way through crowds of droids to a Consular-class cruiser (Charger c70 retrofit) when a sudden explosion chain started heading straight for them. Luckily, Anakin blocked the explosion before it did any damage to their rescue ship and the Jedi and clones, yet injuring himself to the extent that he was knocked out. Then the ship was hit from the force of an explosion which was enough to kill a clone pilot and knock his head on the control panel, automatically locking the hyper-drive, launching them into the direction of a small star, yet they survived going through the star, crash landing into Maridan.
