The Taris spaceport. Moff Irrelevant and Pierce are present with Sevasht & co. -
Moff Irrelevant: As a gesture of goodwill, I'd like you to take Lieutenant Pierce off my hands. Please.
Pierce: Feeling's mutual, sir. So, milord. Can I come with?
Sevasht: I have this strange, overwhelming feeling I don't have a choice.
- frame: Pierce grins. -
Pierce: You're not wrong.
Quinn: Hmph. Fine. If you're coming, you get to be the bottom of the totem pole.
Sevasht: I don't know, he –
Quinn: He's a Lieutenant! I'm Captain! It's a rule!
Sevasht: Fine. But Vette still outranks you.
- Quinn sulks. -

- The medbay on the Fury. Jaesa corners Sevasht. -
Jaesa: The Dark Side is glorious. I have slept with and murdered everybody who crosses my path. Truly I am free.
- frame: Sevasht edges along the wall toward the door. -
Sevasht: Jaesa, that's really TMI.
Jaesa: I WILL NOT HOLD BACK. I GLORY IN DESTRUCTION.
- frame: Sevasht nervously lifts a warning finger. -
Sevasht: Actually, Jaesa, the Dark Side is more about, um, observing local ordinances and not being a dick. The dark part specifically is really more about, uh, being kind of sullen sometimes.
- frame: Jaesa blinks. Repeatedly. -
Sevasht: And dressing in black. That's about it.
Jaesa: I don't believe you, master.
Sevasht: …well, you can't blame a guy for trying.

- The Fury. Sevasht approaches Pierce. -
Sevasht: So! Welcome aboard.
Pierce: Settled in. Good ship. Hate the captain.
Sevasht: Yeah, he's actually Darth Baras's personal spy. None of us really take him seriously.
Pierce: Noted.
Sevasht: You can pretend to listen to him if that amuses you.
Pierce: I probably won't.
Sevasht: You'll fit right in.

- The Fury. Baras is briefing Sevasht & co. -
Baras: I have located another of the targets for…PLAN ZERO.
- Music: Duh-duh DUUUUH! -
Baras: My master Darth Vengean is terrorizing the Outer Rim. The Republic's Admiral Monk is now pursuing his flagship. We must close and take down Admiral Monk.
Jaesa: KILLY KILL KILL YAAAAAAY
Baras: Yes, thank you for that contribution.
Jaesa: Happy to KILL KILL KILLETY…um, help.

- Darth Vengean's flagship under the command of Moff Masken. Sevasht & co. approach. -
Sevasht: I'm here to help!
Moff Masken: YOU.
Sevasht: Me?
Moff Masken: You and your master sold us out to undercut Vengean! How else could Admiral Monk have known where to find us?
Sevasht: How did he find you? Uh, maybe the path of terror and destruction you've been cutting around the Outer Rim?
- frame: Moff Masken pouts. -
Moff Masken: Shut up and go away.

- A hiding place on Quesh. Sevasht & co. approach a knot of Republic officers. -
Text overlay: Sevasht finds Admiral Monk's escape pod on Quesh…
Admiral Monk: What's your problem?
Sevasht: Um, you're a Republic admiral and I'm a Sith Lord?
Admiral Monk: I'm a spy for Darth Baras, you moron.
Quinn: Oh, hi.
Sevasht: Real subtle, captain.
- frame: Quinn looks clueless. -
Quinn: My lord?
Sevasht: Never mind. Anyway, Monk, killing fellow agents of Baras is my full-time job. Nothing personal.
Admiral Monk: You'd think working for Republic High Command would make me sufficiently hard to shiv.
Sevasht: Sorry.

Admiral Monk's holdout on Quesh. -
Admiral Monk: No one's safe with Baras…not even you.
Sevasht: Like I could leave.
Admiral Monk: You will if you want to live, fool.
Sevasht: Come on. You know I'm stuck with this plotline.
Admiral Monk: What?
Sevasht: …You're not going to yell at me to keep the secret?
Admiral Monk: Not only are you an idiot, you're insane.
Sevasht: …How did you not get this memo? You're not recruitable, are you?
Pierce: Milord?
Sevasht: Uh, nothing. Let's just kill him and go, guys.
