CT-5555 has been through the mill. Shot and left for dead, he awakes to find himself in a strange ship. At first, he thinks it's to enslave him like so many brothers were. But there's something about his spacer companion, Melia Skye. Maybe it's her weapons, a quarter staff and a blaster. Maybe it's Bee, her reworked battle droid. But whatever it is, it's enough to make him calmer in her presence. He isn't going to be tortured...he thinks. But when Fives and Melia get the chance to rescue two injured clones and a Jedi, the full weight of Order 66 will come crashing down on the fragile peace inside Fives' battered mind. Is he strong enough to fight against the strongest order of all?
