Maarek Stele, an ex-swoop racer from the planet Kuan, is now a technician who has been working in Repairs on the Imperial Star Destroyer Vengeance for the past month. On a routine TIE Fighter maintenance check, Stele shows great affinity for piloting a starfighter, and is given a handbook on the basic functions of Imperial starfighters, as well as permission to use the starfighter simulators. He applies to the Imperial Navy, and due to his excellent simulator scores, is accepted. In addition, Admiral Mordon, in command of the Vengeance, notices certain qualities that he admires in Stele, and takes him as a confidante. Over time, they get to know each other, and they learn each other’s backgrounds. Mordon was a pilot who wanted to explore, and Stele’s motivation for joining the Empire is to find his father, who had gone missing in a war between Kuan and Bordal in Stele’s youth.
Eventually, Admiral Mordon warns Stele that there is now a greater threat to the Empire than the Rebellion – that there is treachery in the air. He also advises Stele to approach the mysterious hooded envoys of the Emperor, members of his Secret Order, before missions for additional instructions. Soon afterwards, Mordon is killed under strange circumstances, and Stele is finding himself grilled for any information he can give about his former superior officer. He does, but later, a secret message is forwarded to him from the dead Mordon, warning him again about treachery in the Empire, and warning him to keep his eyes open.

This story occurs approximately 3 years after the Battle of Yavin.
