Cad Bane is recruited by Sidious to kidnap four Force-sensitive children for an experiment.

----
!!Tropes:

* AlienBlood: Duros like Cad Bane have green blood, and because he was injured by the clone he killed, he bleeds a little onto the floor of the shuttle. One of the clone troopers notices it.
* AsteroidThicket: Bane's hideout, Black Stall Station, is located in one.
* CallForward:
** Sidious instructs Bane to "[[Film/RevengeOfTheSith take care]]" of the children.
** Sidious' experiment is to take place on Mustafar. Anakin dismisses it as a little-known mining world.
*** On top of that, the secret base where the children were taken looks very much like the Separatist Council's hideout.
** Anakin reports that he and Ahsoka "[[Film/ANewHope tore the ship apart]]" when they searched for Bane, but he escaped.
* CollapsingLair: Sidious has the droids manning the Mustafar base turn off the gravity supports so the facility, and all the evidence, will fall into the lava. It works perfectly, leaving the Jedi with nothing to go upon.
* ContinuitySnarl: When the holocron is seen again at Black Stall Station, it's fully closed, when only a Jedi should have been able to do that.
* CurbStompCushion: It happens offscreen, but it's fairly clear that Denal actually managed to wound Cad Bane before getting killed by him.
* DeadPersonImpersonation: Bane killed the clone trooper Denal and stole his armour in order to get on board the escape shuttle.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Sidious cooing at the babies would be adorable, were he not planning to turn them into slave super-soldiers.
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: At Black Stall Station, Mace and Obi-Wan don't think of using the Force to retrieve the holocron, thus preventing Bane's escape.
* IndyHatRoll: Mace Windu does one with his lightsaber at Black Stall Station.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When future Jedi are at risk of being kidnapped and turned to the Dark Side, Obi-Wan doesn't have time to be polite and soft-spoken, even with the mother of one of the children who has just been taken by Bane.
* {{Pun}}: "You've certainly stepped in it this time!" -- Obi-Wan, after Mace steps off the platform they were standing on and sets off Bane's security system.
* RefugeInAudacity: Bane kidnaps the Rodian baby by disguising himself as a Jedi and informing the baby's mother that he had to take the baby because ''impostors posing as Jedi'' have been abducting babies.
* RevealingInjury: Bane was wounded by Denal, and thus winds up bleeding a bit of green blood onto the floor of the escape shuttle while in disguise. Given as how no one who was ''supposed'' to be on the shuttle had green blood, it's a dead giveaway.
* SpottingTheThread: Bane erased the navicomputer of his starfighter to hide that he'd travelled to Mustafar -- but he didn't think to do the same to the fuel computer, ''and'' he forgot to clean off the volcanic ash that had accumulated on his ship.
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: The babies, courtesy of Sidious.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Bane escapes after the security systems of his hideout are activated, making his way to an escape pod.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: The Jedi sound like this when they join forces to employ a mind trick on Cad Bane.
* WouldHurtAChild: Bane doesn't care what happens to the babies so long as he gets paid, and Sidious is planning to do some ''nasty'' things to them.
