Part OneAfter viewing The Phantom Menace it was generally believed we had seen the end of the greedy Trade Federation. After all, they had illegally blockaded and invaded a planet and got busted. Following that, something surely would be done by Republic officials to restrain them in their shady businesses; and they would hold no more importance to the Prequels. Or so one would think. At an early stage rumblings were coming through mentioning a return of the Neimoidians, and it was later even officially confirmed in the official site’s databank: the Trade Federation is definitely back in Attack of the Clones!
While spoiler reports so far have somewhat cleared up what relevance to the story the organization holds, one may still wonder how this evil trade group can still exist ten years after committing such a big crime.
Furthermore – coming to a new but not less important subject - the events in Episode-1, especially the sudden and unexpected return of the Sith must have left the Jedi puzzled. Darth Maul was defeated and killed, yes. But both Yoda and Mace are aware of the Sith’s ancient ‘rule of two’: “Always two there are…no more…no less. A master and an apprentice”, were Yoda’s insightful words in one of the final scenes of The Phantom Menace. As we remember, Mace Windu agreed, but seeked more answers: “But which one was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?”
Well, spy Sith Interceptor contributes the first part of a spoiler-filled report today, which explains aspects of these problems and shows how the Politics within the Galactic Republic are linked to the Jedi – and a specific individual’s investigation…
This is going to be a great scene, very ironic, like a group of mice talking in front of a lion's mouth. I LOVE the last paragraph (beginning 'the hologram')
