Undercover: Anakin Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker is forced to go undercover as a slave, where his pride, strength, and willpower will be challenged like never before.

  "Sir, we have an incoming transmission from the enemy!" called Commander Cody from his position at the front of the cockpit.
        Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Mace all rushed forward.  "Put it through," Obi-Wan ordered.
        A hologram of Zartek appeared on the transmitter.
        "Zartek," Anakin snarled.
        "I believe the proper term is 'Master,'" the blue figure of Zartek taunted.  "Especially because soon we will have you back in our grasp."
        Mace pushed Anakin out of the way and moved to stand in front of the transmitter.  "Sorry, 'Zartek', but that's not going to happen.  Anakin is not a slave anymore," he said firmly.
        "All we ask is that you hand over the boy," Zartek said.  "If you do as we ask, we will leave you alone.  As you can see, I am allied with the Separatists.  There's no way you can defeat a whole Separatist army."
        "As if," Anakin scoffed from behind Mace Windu.
        "Anakin, be quiet," Obi-Wan said sternly.  Anakin scowled and fell silent.
        "Also, I believe you have another possession of mine," Zartek continued.  "A certain Twi'lek slave?"
        "We are not giving up Anakin or Mand'ii," Mace informed the Zygerrian.  He switched off the transmission, muttering, "Those heartless slavers..."
        "Maybe you'd better give me up," Anakin said quietly.  His mood had suddenly changed from rebellious to thoughtful.
        "What?  No.  That's not going to happen," Obi-Wan replied.  "What makes you think that?"
        Anakin sighed.  "Master, we aren't prepared for a full-fledged space battle.  We have little ammunition and even fewer soldiers.  I don't want to sacrifice the lives of everyone on this ship."
        Mace frowned.  "Obi-Wan, your padawan does have a point."
        "Well, I suppose so," Obi-Wan agreed reluctantly, stroking his beard thoughtfully.  "Anakin, I promise we'll send a rescue team as quickly as possible."
        "Then it's decided," Mace announced with an air of finality.  "I'll go patch a message through to this Zartek character."
        Anakin nodded, bracing himself for what was to come.
