The party makes its final moves in the Iridonian rebellion, infiltrating factories to incite the workers to rise up and create enough civil discord to enable rebel commando teams to strike key targets of the Sith and the King. Through farseeing, the Sith have forseen this plan and lay a trap at the factory where the party goes. At the factory, Joh-Kel and Xek battle a Sith warrior, while the rest of the party chases after the King, who is also revealed to be a dark side Force user. Only the Sith warrior comes out of the battle with the Jedi and claims he killed the Jedi. Meanwhile, the rest of the team joins up with newly arrived Republic commandos from the fleet which has arrived to help drive the Sith from the planet. In a battle within the royal palace itself, the remainder of the Sith warrior and his troops. A very much alive Zath arrives to take out the enemy with a rocket launcher. The King and former Republic Senator of the King’s regime escape in the chaos, but the Sith rulers of the planet are defeated. Oon is crowned queen in a ceremony a few days later, and in the first speech to her people she commissions the building of a statue to commemorate Joh-Kel and Xek, who are missing in action, but presumed dead. She also declares that she will take the fight to enemy wherever they go in the galaxy and that Zath will rule in her stead until her work in the galaxy to keep Iridonia safe is done. Oon, Sebastian, and Nikos return to Coruscant, along with newly appointed Iridonian Senator – Jith Sang.
