Star Wars Saga Timeline:

A queen is dying. Her angry son is conspiring to thwart his planet's elections and maintain his rule. But he might not be her only heir. There may be another bearing the elusive Mark of the Crown.

Qui-Gon Jinn and young Obi-Wan Kenobi come to the planet of Gala as guardians of peace. Now they are facing a deadly battle for power and royal position.

The true heir must be found.

The Jedi must find the way.


Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon are called to Gala to monitor new elections. The queen of the planet is dying, and her last act is to turn the government into a democracy, much to the displeasure of her son, Prince Beju. As the Jedi face the turmoil between the fighting parties, Qui-Gon is sent on a mission to the leader of the Hill People, a separatist faction in the mountains. It turns out that this female leader, Elan, is the true heir to the throne, and the queen wants her to know that before she dies. As Qui-Gon delivers the message, Obi-Wan discovers shady happenings behind the scenes and a possible murder plot against the queen.
