Fugitive Padawan Zayne Carrick's quest to clear his name for the alleged murder of his fellow Jedi-in-training brings him head-to-head with the galaxy's most feared fighting force - the Mandalorians. Along with a petty crook named Gryph and the grouchy droid Elbee, Zayne is a passenger aboard the
Last Resort, a renegade ship piloted by the senile genius Camper and his fierce protector Jarael. Together, this motley crew will face kidnappings, hijackings, maniacal scientists, Mandalorian traitors, bumbling bounty hunting brothers... and a few really big explosions...

After the impressive start to this series that was Commencement, I was pleased to see that the writers and artists managed to keep up the pace for Volume 2 - Flashpoint.

Thousands of years before Luke Skywalker would destroy the Death Star in that fateful battle above Yavin 4, one lone Padawan would become a fugitive hunted by his own Masters, charged with murdering every one of his fellow Jedi-in-training. Join fugitive Zayne Carrick and the motley crew of the renegade ship Last Resort in his quest to clear his name for the alleged murder of his fellow Jedi-in-training brings him head to head with the galaxy's most feared fighting force - the Mandalorians.

Collecting issues #7 - 12 of the ongoing comic book series Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic, this volume adds much to the Star Wars universe. An enjoyable sci-fi romp.
