A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...The
events and players are very familiar, but something
isn't quite right. Luke Skywalker valiantly attacks the
Death Star, fires his torpedoes and ... they miss their
mark! Taking off from the end of events in the movie,
readers will follow Luke, Han, Leia, C-3P0, and R2-D2 on
a journey every bit as action-packed and fantastic as
the original trilogy.
Luke Skywalker has valiantly attacked the Death Star,
yet his torpedoes missed their mark! This one act has
incredible ramifications on the entire Star Wars
universe, as the Death Star maintains its deadly power,
Leia becomes Darth Vader's prisoner again, and Luke
narrowly escapes a barrage of TIE fighters to explore
the strange surface of Dagobah with Han Solo and
Chewbacca! The Rebellion's hopes for freedom are
crushed, and the Emperor takes the planet Coruscant as
his Imperial Throneworld.
In an altered Star Wars timeline, the Death Star is
never destroyed and the Rebellion is seemingly crushed.
The Empire's strong presence throughout the galaxy leads
to the formation of a new Senate, filled with Imperial
puppets. Han Solo and Chewbacca watch in amazement as
the newest Senator from the planet Coruscant, the
Imperial throneworld, is announced - Leia Organa! Hope
springs on Dagobah, as Luke Skywalker nears the
completion of his training with Jedi Master Yoda. But
can any amount of training prepare him for the combined
dark forces of the Emperor, Darth Vader, and Leia,
Vader's new apprentice?
In this altered Star Wars timeline, Luke Skywalker fails
to destroy the Death Star, and the Rebellion is
seemingly crushed. Overcoming his raging emotions, Luke
escapes to become a Jedi Master after finding Yoda and
completing his training. Imperial forces thrive
throughout the galaxy, and Leia Organa undergoes a dark
transformation while Luke plunges headlong into the
heart of the Empire in a final attempt to rekindle the
Rebellion. Brother battles sister, and a dying Jedi
Master squares off against an entire world.
