It seems Queen Veda of Gala is dying, and her final wish is to convert her planet's rule from a monarchy to a democracy. This aim is complicated by any number of factions who benefit greatly from the status quo….including Queen Veda's son, Prince Baju. 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.
