Despite Zayne Carrick’s warning for the Little Bivoli to depart, Marn Hierogryph decides to stay open a little while longer the next morning. Carrick, meanwhile, sneaks aboard the Deadweight, Carth Onasi’sstarship, and identifies himself as a Jedi, explaining his vision of theMandalorian attack. However, Admiral Saul Karath] recognizes Carrick as the purported Jedi-killer and accuses him of being a Mandalorianspy when the two arrive aboard the Courageous‘s bridge. Carrick’s claims of helping “Squint” at Flashpoint are laughed down by Karath, though the admiral allows Onasi to try and contact “Squint” while Carrick remains on the bridge, and Mandalorian ships arrive in thesystem moments later. Hierogryph learns of their arrival, but a last-minute rush on the Little Bivoli leads him to forestall departure. Just as Carrick predicted, the Mandalorians launch dozens of nuclear warheads at the Republic fleet, and just before collision the missiles swerve around the ships to slam into the planet’s surface—and as Onasi returns to the bridge, Carrick cries out as he feels the deaths of thousands. The sensation is felt by Jedi across the galaxy, including Squint, the Jedi known as the Revanchist, Q’Anilia, and Lucien Draay. Only eight ships managed to escape the bombardment, and the Little Bivoli was not one of them; a despondent Carrick is imprisoned in theCourageous‘s brig by a furious Karath. However, Onasi visits Carrick later that night and tells him that he managed to call emergencies down to seventeen of the twenty-seven Stereb cities that were hit by the bombardment, calls that led the Stereb to take shelter in underground bunkers.
