As the Clone Wars continue the
wealthy citizens of Coruscant still crave leisure
opportunities: be it games of chance, cutting-edge
fashion, or even the thrill of high speed podracing. So
it is when high above the skycrappers of Coruscant a
leisure satellite arrives in orbit it becomes popular
amongst those Coruscanti who desire its pleasures.
Among those visiting are Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker,
drawn to the death-defying podraces, his Padawan Ahsoka
Tano and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi - both of whom are
not so taken with the races, but still understand
Anakin's excitement. However during one of the races
Anakin notices that some of droids seem more interested
in constructing something rather than servicing the
Leaping down into the pits Anakin realises that the
droids are constructing a laser cannon directed at the
Galactic Senate building! Supported by Obi-Wan and
Ahsoka, the Jedi trio attack the droid cannon amidst the
ongoing podrace - trying hard to avoid the fast moving
racers and directed blaster fire at the same time.
Fearing that the innocent racers may get hurt, quick
thinking Anakin uses the Force to launch one of the pit-droids
into the laser cannon's air-cooling vent causing it to
overheat and explode.
The Jedi heroes have not only prevented disaster
happening to the Senate but have also provided a
firework show for the winner of the podrace!
