To stop a civil war, the Republic sends Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, but unbeknownst to them, the Quarren are already being backed by the Separatists.
Meanwhile, the Jedi must protect Mon Cala's new leader, the young Prince Lee-Char, from the attack."

The 'Jedi fortune cookie' message that opens the show reads...
"When destiny calls, the chosen have no choice."
Water wars! Tensions run high on the ocean world of Mon Calamari, where two separate peoples, the aggressive squid-like Quarren and their peaceful neighbor, the Mon Calamari, struggle to maintain a fragile co-existence. Adding to the strife, the king of the Mon Calamari has been found mysteriously murdered, leaving his young son, Prince Lee-Char, to guide his people alone. But the Quarren race will not accept the new ruler as their king.
Senator Amidala and her Jedi bodyguard have arrived to help resolve the matter and to avoid plunging the planet into civil war....
Trivia: Captain Ackbar's line of "It's an attack!" was an homage to his famous line in Return of the Jedi, "It's a trap!"
