The Clone Wars rage to their bloody climax. Treachery
reigns. Treason takes courage. Commandos, Jedi, and the
entire Galactic Republic must face the end of life as
they know it and the dreaded dawn of a new empire.
Even as the Clone Wars are about to reach an explosive
climax, no one knows if victory will favour the Grand
Army of the Republic (GAR) or the Separatists. But no
matter who wins, the stakes are highest for elite
Special Ops clones like the Republic Commandos in Omega
and Delta squads and the notorious renegade Advance
Recon Commando troopers known as Null ARCs.
With Republic forces stretched to the max and casualties
mounting, the last thing these beleaguered warriors need
to hear is that Chancellor Palpatine is keeping vast
armies of secret clone troops in reserve. Sergeant
Skirata, a mentor to the clone commandos, has no
intention of standing idly by while Palpatine sends them
into battle like lambs to the slaughter. Skirata begins
to plan the clones' escape from the GAR, but his heroic
effort will be in vain unless he can reverse the clones'
accelerated aging process. To pull that feat off, he
will need the services of Separatist scientist Ovolot
Qail Uthan, currently under lock and key in a GAR
fortress prison. Caught in the treacherous dealings of
their leaders, and locked in the battles of their lives,
the disillusioned Null ARCs and Commandos nonetheless
fight with everything they've got, determined to wrest
victory from the Seps and save the galaxy.
But even the deadliest weapons may not be powerful
enough to defeat the real menace. And nothing will stop
the apocalyptic horror unleashed when Palpatine utters
the chilling words: The time has come. Execute Order 66.
Translation: The Jedi have tried to stage a coup, and
all must be shot on sight.
With their faith in the Republic and their loyalty to
their Jedi allies put to the ultimate test, how will the
men of Omega and Delta squads react to the most infamous
command in galactic history?
