Synopsis:
The Empire in is retreat, Luke Skywalker has begun a quest to rebuild the Jedi. Although dead, the Emperor's presence still haunts him, and Luke still feels the taint of the dark side from his time as the Emperor's thrall.
The dark shadow of Palpatine seems to creep across the galaxy once again, and the Empire awaits his return. Enslaving a weapons factory to design a device more deadly than the Death Star, the Empire sets its plans in motion: to destroy the New Republic once and for all!
Every bounty hunter on Nar Shaddaa is looking to bag the head of the infamous Han Solo, but Boba Fett is determined to take home the trophy. And while they're busy tracking Solo, he's trying to track down an old Jedi woman, perhaps the last hope of the New Republic. Can Solo keep one step ahead of the galaxy's most cutthroat gunmen and find the ancient Jedi?
Luke is racing to the far side of the galaxy to obtain a Jedi Holocron rumored to be on the planet Ossus. The power and knowledge that ancient device holds could give him just the edge he needs to defeat the evil Empire! But the Emperor has heard these rumors, too, and has sent a platoon of battle-hungry Dark Siders to bring the Holocron back to him. Fire up the lightsaber, Luke! It's gonna be a long night!
Luke Skywalker discovers an ancient, powerful Jedi relic among the ruins of the planet Ossus. But can he get off the planet with it, or even with his life? The Emperor's Darksiders are hot on Luke's tail, and he must battle for his life before he can battle for the galaxy!
Meanwhile, in another part of the galaxy, Lando Calrissian and a team of Rebel commandos take the fight to the enemy camp. Hidden within a shipment of War Droids spacebound for the Emperor's throneworld, they're going to take down the Empire or go down themselves!
Lando Calrissian's war droids have painted a target on the Emperor's citadel, but an army of monstrous creatures are making it their own mission to stop the New Republic fighters. Meanwhile, on the world of Ganath, Han Solo has to equip his damaged Millennium Falcon with antique weaponry. Will it be enough to escape from Boba Fett?
Han Solo and Princess Leia have taken refuge with their twins on the planet New Alderaan. But refuge, it seems, eludes the family when Emperor Palpatine and an AT-AT battalion come hunting for Rebel officers. Worry not, Leia! They don't want your lives, they just want your children!
