Synopsis:
For centuries, the human Rabaanites and the insectoid S’krrr of the Ishanna system have settled their differences by a one-on-one battle between two of their best warriors on a desolate moon – the Combat Moon. Mika Streev is the human slated next for a fight, which settles on a Rabaanite orbital platform destroyed in a shuttle accident. Sh’shak represents the S’krrr. Unknown to either, the Empire is about to jump into the battle in the form of General Klime. Klime plans to capture the two fighters in hopes in igniting open battle between the humans and S’krrr, thus providing an opening for the Empire to seize total and unquestioned control of the system. As he prepares to leave for Combat Moon, Mika learns his lover Leda Kyss is joining the Rebels. She hints that it may have been the Empire, not the S’krrr, who destroyed the platform. Mika arrives on Combat Moon to find the stormtroopers waiting for him – and a “friend,” Andos Delvaren, who helps the troopers catch him. They plan to kill Mika and make it look like the S’krrr killed him. Then they’ll do the same with the S’krrr, and presto – war. Mika kills the troopers, sends Andos running, then tries to save the S’krrr warrior out to kill him even as Leda pleads for the Rebels to save Mika. Sh’shak has also discovered the Imperial treachery, but has also been captured by the Empire and badly wounded. Mika fights the troopers off him, and then Leda joins them and sends a signal to the Rebels. The Imperials counterattack in force, and Leda is killed. A Rebel pilot arrives in an X-Wing, shooting up the troops. He takes the two surviving fighters with him, and orders the immediate evacuation of the nearby Rebel outpost. Klime takes the opportunity he has waited for to send in the Imperial garrison. Unfortunately, he says all this in full hearing of a Rebel listening device. A grief-stricken Mika and Sh’shak vow to work together to destroy Klime and drive the Empire out of the system.
