Following the events of Force Heretic II: Refugee, Jedi Knight Jaina Solo investigates the origins of the Human Replica Droid Bakuran Prime Minister Cundertol had infused his essence into. Her investigation leads her to the droid manufacturer ODT's headquarters on Onadax, in the Minos Cluster.
There, she confronts Stanton Rendar (head of the factory and the brother of the infamous smuggler Dash Rendar) concerning the morality of granting immortality to sentients through droids and attempts to persuade him to surrender himself to the Galactic Alliance. However, Stanton and his associates unleash their droids on Jaina, creating a diversion which allows them to escape. The story ends with Jaina feeling bitter over the failure of the mission.
