Synopsis:
Even as Rebel forces make their first tentative attacks against the Empire, a plot is brewing within the ranks of those the Emperor and Darth Vader count as loyal to their cause. A small cabal of disaffected Imperial officers have targeted their masters for death, with the goal of taking over the Empire themselves. But in the midst of a conspiracy that includes hired assassins and a private army, there are those who have no intention of sharing power with their co-conspirators.
The plot against the Emperor and Darth Vader proceeds, but as the conspirators worry about whether either of their targets suspect and how much they might suspect, they also begin to wonder about each other. Can the cold-blooded killer Gauer be trusted? What about the ambitious Imperial Officer Dezsetes? And who can tell what goes on behind the blank eyes of the cybernetically enhanced Grand Moff Trachta? In the midst of the plots and counter plots, word comes of a new threat: a new, unknown Jedi has emerged to challenge Vader. 
Darth Vader is sent to a distant world to track down this mysterious Jedi. But, instead of a Jedi Knight, he is confronted by a cadre of bounty hunters who have come to the conclusion that ganging up on and defeating the Sith Lord will bring them fame and fortune. Boy, are they in for a wake-up call! Meanwhile, on Coruscant, the ranks of those plotting to kill Emperor Palpatine are thinned as the co-conspirators begin targeting each other. 
A proposition is made for Lord Vader and a powerful young Jedi to join forces and overthrow the Emperor. But this offer comes from the young Jedi to the Dark Lord of the Sith! Meanwhile, the Emperor and his elite Royal Guards are facing other would-be usurpers: the secret, traitorous cadre of Imperial officers and their loyal Stormtroopers!
