The challenge of hope is to overcome corruption. Padmé, on a diplomatic mission to Mandalore, guarantees the pacifist planet the Republic's full protection, but she and Duchess Satine soon find something sinister lurking beneath the planet's serene facade.

Eh, it was nice to see Padme and Satine at the center of the story for once, but this was a pretty unambitious episode to put them in. The heavy-handed exposition about corruption and political bureaucracy wasn't handled especially well, and the central mystery of the episode was fairly paint-by-numbers as well. There's the slightest bit of juice in the idea that Satine is getting her feet on the ground and seeing how the sausage is made for life among the common citizenry, but for the most part this is a pretty bland outing that wastes an opportunity to give two of the show's more prominent female characters a compelling story.
