A luxury cloud cruiser has slipped out of control and is sinking into the thick atmosphere of Yorn Skot, barreling at breakneck speed around the planet in a slowly decaying orbit. Fortunately, two of the Jedi's finest are in the area -- Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi! They've only got 84 minutes to board the runaway cruise ship, restore control, and save the suspicious collection of filthy rich passengers from a cloudy grave! But it won't be easy -- the ship doesn't WANT to be repaired, and the systems themselves seem to repel their every effort! Thrills and chills abound on board "THE AURORIENT EXPRESS"!

Some days being a hero can be more trouble than it's worth, but for Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, that's just part of what being a Jedi is all about. As the luxury cruise liner they're trapped on sinks deeper into the crushing atmosphere of Yorn Skot, their only hope of restoring the ship's controls is to identify the criminal mastermind among the list of rich, suspicious passengers. Unfortunately, their prime suspect has leapt to his death, and there are only 43 minutes left to save the day! Adventure soars high in the exciting conclusion to "THE AURORIENT EXPRESS"!
