Outline

On Coruscant, Karn starts a new job at the Bureau of Standards. Colonel Yularen announces that the ISB has gained more surveillance and punitive authority, while Meero is challenged by Blevin for breaking protocol by accessing Imperial data without authorization. She persuades her superiors of her work’s value and is assigned oversight of Ferrix. Luthen’s assistant Kleya instructs Vel to find and kill Cassian, as he knows Luthen’s identity. Mon Mothma meets with Tay Kolma, an old friend and banker, and asks him to help her access family funds. Cassian returns to Ferrix to settle old debts and learns that people blame him for the Corporate Security crackdown. The Imperial presence on Ferrix reminds Cassian of how his adoptive father, Maarva’s husband, was murdered by clone troopers years ago. Cassian attempts to get Maarva to leave Ferrix with him, but she decides to stay and oppose the increased Imperial presence. Cassian travels alone to the tropical tourist paradise of Niamos. One month later, while living under the name “Keef Girgo,” he is unjustly arrested by a Shoretrooper and sentenced to six years of imprisonment.
