Forty years have passed since the events depicted in Return of the Jedi, where the nefarious Emperor Palpatine met his doom. During the decades since the Battle of Endor, the New Republic slowly swallowed up the remnants of the Empire. However, new enemies have emerged from a rogue group of Dark Jedi and from a powerful alien species located in the Unknown Regions of the galaxy. Han Solo and Lando Calrissien are now in their seventies while Leia Organa Solo, Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade-Skywalker are in their sixties. Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade-Skywalker have long since married and have a son named Jhon.
The Cloud City of Bespin has been converted into one of the many Jedi training facilities located all throughout the galaxy. Numbering in the thousands, the Jedi Order is fast approaching its Old Republic zenith. Bespin is now the home to both Jedi Masters, Knights and Apprentices.
During routine Jedi training on Bespin, hundreds of Dark Jedi invade wearing jet packs, which send them like a swarm dropping into the upper reaches of the cloud city. These Dark Jedi are seeking to re-establish the legacy of Darth Vader and, hence, they wear a more-advanced-looking version of Darth Vader's black helmet and body armor in honor of their fallen hero.
As the Dark Jedi attack Bespin, their sleek battle satellites hover above the floating city and rain down turbolaser fire on the city. The Jedi are taken by complete surprise. However, the Dark Jedi seek not to conquer Bespin, but to capture some of the Jedi's prized holocrons, which hold vast quantities of information about the ancient ways and customs of the Jedi. As hundreds of lightsabre battles erupt between the Jedi and their dark counterparts, some of the Dark Jedi use concussion grenades to cause damage to Bespin's superstructure.
A few of the holocrons are captured by the Dark Jedi. With their mission now complete, the Dark Jedi retreat from the Cloud City and fly away from the city using their jet packs which they wear on their backs. The Dark Jedi fly into the nearby clouds and disappear. The roar of engines can be heard as the Dark Jedi escape in their customized Tie Ragers, which were hidden in the clouds.
The members of the Jedi Council, currently only seven are present on Coruscant, quickly gather themselves in the new Jedi Temple. Under Luke Skywalker's guidance, the legendary 12-member Jedi Council on Coruscant was re-established. Both Luke and Leia are current members of the Council. However, neither is present on Coruscant to hear Jhon's report (Jhon is the son of Luke and Mara) of the Dark Jedi's attack on Bespin. Jhon's report to the Council ends with the news that Bespin has been left in near ruins as a result of the assault. Jhon reports that the Dark Jedi have stolen some of their sacred holocrons. The Council senses that a new war may soon erupt.
Meanwhile, Luke and Mara are many light years from both Coruscant and Bespin and are unaware of the attack on Bespin. Luke and Mara, with their Jedi entourage, are in the Bendu crossways securing badly needed supplies for the various Jedi training facilities. Upon returning to their Jedi starship, Luke and Mara learn from C-3PO and R2-D2 that the Dark Jedi have stolen some of the holocrons from a damaged Bespin. After learning of this shocking news, Luke and Mara hyperspace to Bespin in their starship.
During their journey to Bespin, Mara contacts Leia concerning the attack on Bespin. Leia tells Mara that she has already learned of the attack and will be returning to the Jedi Tower on Coruscant as soon as possible. Han and Leia are knee deep in negotiations on the outskirts of New Republic territory. Leia is negotiating with the Raverons, a dangerous alien species that lives in the Unknown Regions, concerning one of Lando's mining facilities which is located just outside of Raveron territory.
At the Republic Senate, Lana - Han and Leia's eldest granddaughter - is a member of the Senate. The Senate is in hot debate on how to handle the Dark Jedi debacle at Bespin. Some senators want to get involved while others seek to ignore that matter and want to let the Jedi handle their own problems.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Dark Jedi is elated to learn that some of the holocrons have successfully been taken from the Jedi. The leader is currently at the Dark Jedi's cloning facility, which is located on an artificial comet hurtling through space. The leader is using this facility to make clones of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Dark Jedi plan to fulfill Darth Vader's prophecy that he and Luke should rule the galaxy as father and son and bring peace and order to the galaxy. The Dark Jedi are using Imperial DNA samples of Vader to produce a clone of the Dark Lord of the Sith and are using DNA samples from Luke's severed hand to produce a clone of the venerable Jedi Master. Skywalker's severed hand is currently owned by one of the chief Dark Jedi named, Spiden.
The leader of the Dark Jedi is angered when he learns that the information contained on the holocrons has been encrypted. They must now find someone who can decrypt the safeguard that protects the invaluable information located within the holocrons.
Meanwhile, Spiden hatches a plan to leak the Dark Jedi's efforts to clone Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker to agents working within both the New Republic and the Raveron. Spiden hopes the leader of the Dark Jedi will be destroyed by either forces from the New Republic or the Raverons so that he can become the new leader of the Dark Jedi. Spiden leaks this information to both sides. Both the New Republic and the Raveron plan to intercept the Dark Jedi comet, which is hurtling through space near the Sluivan system.
Also, Spiden contacts Luke Skywalker and asks the great Jedi Master to meet with him on the planet of Sluivan. In a volcanic cavern on Sluivan, Spiden tells Luke that Spiden has something that Luke might want to have back. Spiden places Luke's hand, which is stored in a small preservation chamber, in the middle of the cavern between the two. Spiden tells Luke of the Dark Jedi's plans to clone Vader and Luke. Luke is horrified upon hearing this news. Further, Spiden offers to give back Luke's hand in exchange for a duel. It becomes clear to Luke that only the winner of this duel will be able to keep the hand. This is the only way Luke has a chance to become fully human again without any bionic implants.
Luke tells Spiden that Luke is only half the man he use to be in his prime. Spiden replies to Luke that he has no problems with striking down an old man like Luke because Spiden's own fallen hero, Darth Vader, had no problem striking down the aged Obi-Wan Kenobi on the death star. Spiden draws his lightsabres; one in each of his hands as is Spiden's fighting style. While Luke may be many years older than Spiden, Luke was still many times more powerful in the ways of the Force than Spiden. Luke is so powerful that he no longer has to rely on weapons for protection. With a quick throw of his hand, Luke uses the Force to send Spiden plummeting over a cliff located at the edge of the cavern. Luke picks up the small chamber containing his hand and leaves the cavern. Luke plans to head back to Coruscant.
All members of the Jedi Council are now present on Coruscant and their inner sanctum, which contains the members, is beamed vis a vis a 3D holographic image onto the Senate chamber floor. The leaders of the Senate tell the Jedi Council that they must unite their forces in order to destroy the comet which contains the Dark Jedi's cloning facilities. The New Republic/Jedi launch their forces to intercept the Dark Jedi comet.
Both the New Republic/Jedi and the Raverons are in pursuit of the Dark Jedi's comet. Sensors tell the Dark Jedi that they are being pursued by two hostile forces. Immediately, the leader of the Dark Jedi senses that the New Republic/Jedi seek to destroy the comet while the Raverons are planning to capture the comet and use the cloning technology against the New Republic.
Knowing that the Dark Jedi will be defeated, the leader of the Dark Jedi orders that the comet's heading be changed so that it will crash into one of the Sluivan moons in 15 minutes. The leader tells his Dark Jedi to place the growing clones of Vader and Luke into the escape cruiser. The leader plans to have the attacking New Republic/Jedi and Raveron forces destroyed when the comet smashes into a small moon. Starships from both sides attach themselves to the side of the comet and burrow their way inside the comet. Strike forces from the New Republic/Jedi and the Raverons invade the comet and battle each other. Each side is trying to make their way to the heart of the cloning complex. The Dark Jedi escape in their cruiser with the growing clones. When the New Republic/Jedi learn of the comet's collision course with the moon, they retreat to their cruisers and flee the area. The Raverons try to change the comet's trajectory, but fail to make the changes in time to avoid the moon. The comet, the moon and the Raverons are obliterated in the collision.
While the Dark Jedi cloning facility has been destroyed, the New Republic and Jedi are unaware that the Dark Jedi succeeded in preserving the growing clones of Vader and Luke, which will be utilized in the Dark Jedi's grand scheme to conquer the galaxy . . .END EPISODE 7
