Following the theft of the new star destroyer Imperious, Darth Krayt is not happy.
Darth Krayt is on the planet Dac when he announces his plan to make an example out of the Mon Calamari. He starts with killing the traitor Gial Gahan, then orders his sith and storm troopers to kill ten percent of the Mon Calamari and to enslave the rest in Imperial labor camps. In doing so he willing losses the ship yards at Mon Calamari.
Meanwhile on Dac two Imperial Knights; Treis Sinde and Sigel Dare save Monia Gahan, niece to Gial Gahan, from attacking storm troopers. The knights mission, to send Monia to warn Admiral Gar Stazi that they had sabotaged the stolen Imperious just before it was stolen. Monia refuses to leave the planet without the other captured alliance pilots. This leads to another rescue and them stealing an Imperial transport. Treis Sinde jumps ship to stall sith Lord Azard long enough for the others to escape.
Upon the rendezvous with the Alliance, Monia Gahan convinces Admiral Stazi to contact Emperor Fel to negotiate a alliance against the sith. Back on Dac, the left behind Treis Sinde has joined the Mon Calamari resistence.
