It has now been ten years since the invasion of Naboo by the Trade Federation. The Galactic Republic is in turmoil and the former Jedi Night Count Dooku has organized a separatist movement against the Republic. The Republic is preparing for a counterattack on the Federation. After the former queen of Naboo survives an assassination attempt, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are assigned to protect her. After they see several attempted assassinations, a killing with a poison dart reveals that no information on the weapon is present in the Jedi archives, leading them to figure out that a conspiracy is afoot. Obi-Wan heads to Kanibo where he discovers that the Republic is producing an army of clone troopers with plans to destroy what is left of the Trade Federation.
