The Force is troubled
For more than twenty-one years, Queen Amidala has declared her small Island of Naboo to be in danger, but very few in the Senate have been paying attention to her warning. Still, eight years ago, some group of Developed Planets, decided after a special meeting on the Kyoto Moon to show to the Queen that they were fighting on her side. Sadly, this was not enough to prevent the Dark Side of the Force from expanding its power.
Queen Amidala, hearing some people claiming that changes in the Force are not anthropogenic
This time, the United Galaxies Republic is trying to propose a stronger reaction and meet again to find an agreement. Indeed, the situation can no longer be ignored. The Force is troubled, as many planets have suffered great disasters in the past decades. If Senators do not act now, there is nothing we can do to prevent the Dark Side to take control over the Force.
Senators from all around the Universe have come to show their willingness to take action. Yet the cooperation between all those planets with various interests is quite a challenge. Besides, some members seem to be double-edged – claiming great support to the Republic of the UNFCCC (United Novae Framework Convention on Containing Catastrophes) and its Senate. They restate their will to engage with other Planets, but in the meantime they are forming a plot against the Force at home. In Kamino, an army of fossil fuel plants, ready to attack anytime, is being constructed every year.
Around the tables, it looks like some senators would like to see the discussion come to a failure. Are we before the biggest Intergalactic conspiracy of all time?
Prediction of the JED’IPCC
Obi-wan Kenobi – perplex about the outcomes of the agreement
For many years, the JED’IPCC, a community of respected Scientists, have been dedicated to understanding and protecting the Force, the binding power between all things in Nature. But Planets’ emissions are interfering with the Force, thereby threatening the entire Universe.
“Beyond 2 degrees threshold, unpredictable the future is”, according to Master Yoda, the oldest and most respected member of the JED’IPCC. Dramatic consequences are expected if this tipping point is exceeded.
Unfortunately, some JED’Is sometimes leave the Community, tempted by the dark side of the Force, disseminating lies and spreading doubt about the dangers to come among the Republic citizens and leaders.
Will the Republic stay united, in the face of a group of Separatists led by the treacherous count Dooku, Head of BP (Black Planet), and the Trade Federation, the most powerful lobbying group opposing any form of Agreement?
Danger from a superweapon
Meanwhile, Padawan Anakin Skywalker rises from an intergalactic organization of young researchers, committed to saving the Force, no matter what. He insures the protection of Amidala, and together they travel to Geonosis to rescue Obi-wan Kenobi. Count Dooku finds himself unable to deafeat Yoda’s wisdom, but escapes to deliver the blueprints for a superweapon to his Master, Darth Sidious. Will the Republic be strong enough to uncover the plot, and prevent the ennemies from using their superweapon?
