Dooku Captured (Vanqor) (3)
Basic info
First appearance: The Clone Wars (TV Series)
While on Vanqor for unknown reasons, the pirates on Ohnaka gang discovered the Sith Lord Count Dooku, fresh from a battle against Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his heavily damaged solar sailer. Ohnaka offered him passage to Florrum, a planet six parsecs away. When they arrived at Ohnaka's base, the pirate revealed his true intention of offering Dooku for ransom to the Republic at 1,000,000 credits in spice. Chancellor Palpatine sent Kenobi and Skywalker to confirm the capture of Dooku and negotiate with the pirates, but they too were captured by the pirates, because Ohnaka greedily desired to triple the spice ransom.
Turk Falso, Ohnaka's lieutenant, and Barb Mentir, a fellow pirate, conspired together in betraying the gang and stealing the spice for themselves. Mentir managed to shoot down the Republic shuttle carrying the spice ransom with a Flarestar-class Weequay ship, killing the pilots as well as Senator Kharrus. Jar Jar Binks, Commander Stone and the remaining clone troopers were then attacked by Falso and half a dozen pirates, utilizing swoop bikes. They stole the spice from the shuttle, but the Republic forces chased the pirates by riding on skalders and managed to retrieve the spice.
Falso returned back to the base and, in Ohnaka's presence, claimed that the Republic hadn't sent the spice, but instead, an army. The deceived leader gave Falso permission to send pirate tanks to wipe out the army. The plan failed and the power line to the base was destroyed. During the chaos that followed in the now darkened outpost, the hostages managed to escape. Dooku killed a guard, Mentir, and Falso, stealing a saucer craft and escaping Florrum. The Jedi held Ohnaka with a lightsaber to the throat, while the Republic forces arrived in two stolen tanks. Skywalker released Ohnaka once the Jedi felt that Dooku had left Florrum. The wise leader ordered his men to stand down and allowed the Republic forces leave in the Twilight, in awe at the honorable Jedi.
