Thanks to Val, Marcus and the crew of the Legacy were able to subdue the Pirates and rescue Jondu. Ray and Amanda’s wounds are being treated and the crew head for Jondu’s home world to attempt to form an alliance. Though they do not look like Terrans, the Maroni are also Prime descendants and the crew want to form an alliance. They meet the Forefathers that call themselves the guardians of the Maroni, but discussing just how the Maroni came to be and why they have Prime blood is forbidden. Despite a dark secret, the Forefathers share the location of the key in exchange for the Terrans never to return to the Maroni home world. It is one thing knowing where to find the key, it is yet another to actually get it. Cukar takes sides and Emerson and Casara’s ambitions are becoming reality.
