The people of Tondatha, a city on the planet Agamar (in the Lahara Sector), are punished by the Empire for being Rebel collaborators. Keyan Farlander survives, his sister Kitha is badly burned and shipped off to relatives on Oorn Tchis, but his parents are tragically killed. Three months later, Tondatha is deserted. Keyan moves to the city of Calna Muun, and eventually joins the Resistance movement on Agamar. Keyan is excited with the news that the co – founder of the Alliance, Mon Mothma, is scheduled to visit Agamar.
When Mon Mothma arrives, Keyan is captivated by her speech as she outlines the history of the Rebellion so far, and reveals to the Agamarians tales of oppression of the Empire. A member of the Alliance hands Keyan a pamphlet named “A Call to Reason” – ‘to be caught with this means death . . .’ he is told. Keyan decides to join the Rebellion, and enters the Starfighter Training Program. 
Farlander is sent to a secret training area, and pilots ‘the maze’ to improve and hone his flying skills. Completing that, Keyan trains in the simulators, re-creating historical missions. General Dodonna, impressed with Farlander’s test scores, rushes him into a squadron. 

This story occurs approximately 1 year before the Battle of Yavin.
