Information obtained from the captured renegade Jedi Quinlan Vos could be vitally important to a Republic victory in the Clone Wars-or it could be a setup for a massive ambush. Jedi spy-master Tholme decides to send his best agent, Aayla Secura, to the Outer Rim worlds in hopes of verifying Vos' story.

But if following the information could be dangerous for an entire Republic fleet, how safe can it possibly be for a single Jedi?

Star Wars: Republic begins its sprint toward the climactic events in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Don't miss it!

    This is a brave issue of Star Wars: Republic. There's no Obi-Wan, no Anakin, no Yoda, no Mace... indeed, besides a brief cameo by Count Dooku and some minor characters from the movies such as Aayla Secura and Dex (that strange looking alien who Obi-Wan visits at the retro diner in Attack of the Clones), this issue tries to stand on the strength of characters we don't often read about. Does it work? To some degree, yes. Would I like to see more issues like this? Short answer, no. Longer answer, I think these issues are necessary to give us a break from the Big Names and it seems that the next issue might be in a similar vein. With Star Wars: Republic rapidly racing towards the events in the next movie release, however, I'm hoping that not too much more Clone Wars time is "wasted" with stories about characters who only enjoy a cult following, if that.
