Darth Vader #29

As Sabé searches Brentaal IV for Jul Tambor, who Darth Vader has ordered her to assassinate, Ochi sneaks one of the other handmaidens disguised as Sabé on to an Imperial Star Destroyer to learn more about what her fellow handmaiden has been up to. While good enough to fool Stormtroopers, Dormé's disguise can't stand the scrutiny of a Dark Lord of the Sith who doesn't take kindly to another handmaiden sneaking aboard his ship.

The two-halves of the story fit well-enough together as Dormé learns bits and pieces about Sabé's recent actions (which she still doesn't understand) while her fellow former handmaiden, only momentarily swayed by what she finds on the planet, completes the assignment given to her by Vader and the Emperor by becoming an assassin for the Empire.
