Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress is sent by Count Dooku to attack a Republic tibanna mining outpost in an asteroid field near Mirial. The outpost, which procures the gas from tibanna-producing creatures called beldons, is expecting a visit by Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, his second-in-command Cody, and Jedi General Yoda.
The three, riding in an Eta-class shuttle, are able to shoot down Ventress's vulture droids, stopping any immediate assault. Once they land, they meet the foreman and his son, Ars Fivvle. After noticing weakened gravity and spores in the air, they find Ventress with her droids and engage them in battle. The tibanna gas, made poisonous from the free-floating spores, is cleared by Yoda and the beldons as Obi-wan fights off Ventress. Defeated, she flees, leaving the outpost safe.
