How did they get Padme out of the lab without letting the virus out? The Monkey-Lizard did it! Why did the Confederacy just leave that energy web in orbit around Iego? The Monkey-Lizard, that's why. Why did the Seppies want to unleash the Blue Shadow Virus in the first place? It'd kill Monkey-Lizards, and without Monkey-Lizards, the Plot has no control over them and the bad guys would be free to win. Control the plot, control the galaxy. And Monkey-Lizards control the plot.
