Plot Edit

A group of Stormtroopers are bored on night shift, when Starkiller suddenly appears. The Stormtroopers fire their blasters at him in vain, as Starkiller easily defeats them all with his lightsaber. When the room is cleared, a large door opens and Jedi General Rahm Kota emerges, activating his lightsaber.

Starkiller and Kota enter a fierce lightsaber duel, until Starkiller eventually force-throws Kota against a wall. Kota uses the force to hurl debris at Starkiller, which Starkiller dodges. Starkiller throws a piece back at Kota and knocks him to the ground. He approaches Kota and kills him.[1]
