With the destruction of the Death Star, the Rebel Alliance has struck a critical blow against the forces of the evil Emperor Palpatine. And with the Senate dissolved and the Empire's main tool of domination reduced to space dust, thousands of systems have joined their voices against the Empire. After Darth Vader's narrow escape from the doomed Death Star, the dark lord is consumed with a desire to find the identity of the Force-strong young pilot, who had fired the fatal shot. For the young pilot represents the strength and tenacity of this newly galvanized Rebel Alliance, and perhaps, for Vader, he represents much, much more.
Darth Vader has commissioned a network of spies and rogues to track down young Luke Skywalker, and one of them has struck paydirt in the form of Jal, the Rebel pilot who was forced to sit out the Battle of Yavin while Skywalker destroyed the Death Star and took all the glory. Drunk and miserable, Jal barely survives an Imperial attack and realizes that information he has casually shared might very well destroy Luke Skywalker, and perhaps the entire Rebel Alliance!
Luke Skywalker hunts for the missing princess of Jazbina, oblivious to the real reason she has disappeared! The Rebel pilot Jal races to find Luke in the hope that the Empire hasn't found the Alliance's hero first! And Darth Vader prepares to land on Jazbina. Will the Dark Lord finally have his long-lost son in his clutches?
The insidious Darth Vader has arrived on the planet Jazbina, with devastating consequences! Having learned that the pilot who destroyed the Death Star was none other than his own son, he comes face to face for the first time with Luke Skywalker! The planet's populace stands ready to assist Luke against the evil Dark Lord, but with an Imperial Cruiser over their heads, are they willing to pay the price for defying Vader?

This story occurs months after the Battle of Yavin.
