Approximately two weeks after the events in Chapter 4.
After apprehending the assassins behind the attempt on Senator Ralone's life, Alinta and her new apprentice Karlo are dispatched to the jungle planet of New Cov along with Master Ban Kazi to stop the Separatist invasion.
Ban-Commander, what is the status of our forces?
Commander Deverts- Since landing we've taken heavy casualties, it's not so much the droids as the jungle. For every clone we loose to a droid the jungle seems to take 2 more.
Ban-Then we must move quickly, carve a path to the enemy command center to the east and prepare for hard contact!
Alinta-Master Kazi, the Council sent us to assist you in retaking New Cov.
Ban-The council is sending padawans to the front now? Bah, never mind, I need all the help I can get. Take Alpha Company through the northern path, boy, you take a squad of ARF Troopers and assist your master! Move Out!
(5 hours later Along the Northern Path fierce fighting breaks out)
Alinta-Captain, how close are we to the enemy base?
Captain Bolt-About 3 miles still, these droids are inflicting massive casualties, they're not giving one inch of land...
(Droids appear atop the ridge and fire down onto the clones)
(Karlo and his ARF troopers appear and dispatch the droids)
Karlo-Looks like we came just in time master!
Alinta-Don't get too cocky apprentice we've still got a ways to go.
(At the end of the path)
General Duxos-Commander what is the status of the Republic advance?
OOM-67-The Republic forces have been advancing at a steady rate but have lost many soldiers. Calculations indicate they are within 5 miles of our main command center. Their force is being led by three Jedi.
Kuellos-Of course! I'll take care of those Jedi! Then we'll see how these clones fare!
Duxos-Not yet, I have my orders from Count Dooku himself, we are not to interfere with the Jedi yet. He has something special planned for them, we need only delay them.
(Back on the path the clones attack the last droid forces)
(Alinta destroys the super battle droid)
(The ARF troopers finish off the last droids)
Bolt-That's the last of them.
Alinta-Finally, Now we rendezvous with Master Kazi's troops and prepare to assault the command base, then we leave this rock for good!
Bolt-Alright men for up! Let's move out!
(As the others run off with Alinta, Karlo stops. He looks around and hears something calling to him. Without thinking he walks off alone...)
