Fear is a malleable weapon.A group of rebels from the Separatist planet Onderon seeks the help of the Jedi Order in freeing their home. The Council decides to heed Anakin's advice, and sends him, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Rex to teach them how they can conduct their war in the most efficient way possible.

- Green-Eyed Monster: Ahsoka and Steela are both jealous of each other's relationship with Lux.
- Love Triangle: Both Ahsoka and Steela seem to be rather attracted to Lux.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Saw is rather annoyed by Steela's seemingly reciprocated affection towards Lux.
- La Résistance: The Onderon freedom-fighters.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Steela is the Tomboy to Ahsoka's Girly Girl.
- Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Discussed. Obi-Wan's main concerns regarding Anakin's plan of training rebels is his fear that they'd be training terrorists.
