Six years after Return
of the Jedi, the Rebel Alliance has established a
New Republic over three-fourths of the galaxy. The
surviving Imperial Forces are torn by civil war and
harassed by rebel attacks. One of these raids ends in
disaster: Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian are shot
down over the former Imperial City. When news reaches
Han Solo and Leia Organa, they rush to the rescue, along
with Wookiee Chewbacca and droid C3PO, of course! But
there's something else rushing toward the Imperial City,
something that wants Luke.
Danger stalks the Rebels in the form of the massive
World Devastators, dark side machines that destroy
everything in their path. Their current target is the
planet Calimari, which will be destroyed unless Lando
Calrissian and the Rebel forces can reach it in time.
Meanwhile, Luke meets the face behind the Force storm, a
familiar face, while Leia feels Luke being torn away.
A war for the planet Calamari erupts over that planet's
surface, already threatened by the massive World
Destroyers. While Lando and Wedge take on the Imperial
stormtroopers, Leia is tormented by visions of Luke
being sucked into the darkness. Meanwhile, it seems that
Han has run into some "old friends"!
Betrayed by their friends and pursued by everyone's
favourite bounty hunter, Han and Leia try to escape from
Nar Shaddaa. Meanwhile, the Rebels in combat over the
planet Calamari receive aid from an unexpected source,
and Luke falls deeper into the grip of the Dark Side!
Captured by the Emperor, Leia discovers that he holds
hostage an even greater treasure: a mysterious and
intelligent artefact called the Jedi Holocron. With both
the Holocron and Luke Skywalker under his control,
there's no limit to what the Emperor can do!
Left behind on Byss, Luke travels with the
newly-powerful Emperor Palpatine to capture his sister
Leia. Meanwhile, the Jedi Holocron delivers a
thousand-year-old prophecy to Leia, which tells of her
battle against the young Emperor!
And as the Battle of Calimari rages over the waters of
that world and the Mon Calimari Rebels wonder when their
saviour Luke will shut down the killing machines, a
battle begins above them that overshadows the outcome of
their more conventional war...
The key to their survival all comes down to the data
carried inside one brave little robot.
