It was written by Pablo Hidalgo, and illustrated and lettered by Grant Gould. The Valley shows Peppi Bow asking for help from Queen Neeyutnee because her shaak herds are acting restless and strange. Captain Typho goes to investigate, and finds three B1 battle droids and a tactical droid. The droids are destroyed, and Queen Neeyutnee summons Senator Padmé Amidala back to Naboo to help.
