The Clone Wars

Encountering Dooku, Anakin, and Obi-Wan

During the Clone Wars, Hondo met three Force wielders, the first being Count Dooku, who he and his pirates captured and offered up to the Republic when contacting Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The Senate sent Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to confirm that Dooku was Hondo's hostage. However, the two were kidnapped themselves when Hondo drugged their drinks and intended to ransom Kenobi, Skywalker and Dooku. However, one of his members were hoping to double-cross Hondo and claim the spcie for himself. He believed his enemy, Turk's lies that the Republic was sending an army instead of the ransom. After Dooku, Anakin and Obi-Wan attempted to escape. He held Skywalker and Kenobi in a containment field, while on the battlefield, Hondo's tanks were defeated after Jar Jar entered one of the tanks to negotiate with one of the pirates until accidentally ramming the tanks into each other and knock out the power grid. The black-out on Hondo's base allowed Skywalker, Kenobi and Dooku to escape. He was captured by Obi-Wan and Anakin, who held Hondo hostage until Kenobi told his former Padawan to release Hondo because Dooku had escaped and they didn't want any more trouble with the Pirate Gang. Obi-Wan told Hondo to take caution, because Dooku was not as forgiving as the Jedi. [1]
