In hiding for generations, the Sith have waited for the precise moment to reveal themselves to the galaxy. Hoping to catch the Jedi unaware, Lord Sidious and his deadly apprentice, Darth Maul, have planned and waited patiently for their moment to pounce. Unfortunately, in the days before the Trade Federation blockade of the planet Naboo, Lord Sidious becomes aware of a threat to his plans. This threat comes from the deadly galactic crime organization Black Sun. But Sidious won't stand for any opposition, and Darth Maul is sent to deal with Black Sun -- as only a master of the dark side can!

Gaining entrance to Black Sun, Maul works his way to the inner sanctum of the organization -- and that's when the destruction begins!
