Malrev 4 is an uncivilized planet in a pretty, but
otherwise useless, corner of the galaxy. Inhabited by
vicious, unthinking brutes, it's like a living museum of
pre-evolution. You wouldn't bother going there unless
you had a death wish, or you were a member of Rogue
Squadron and you were trying to rescue a downed cruise
It should have been a simple mission for the men and
women of Rogue Squadron, an easy search-and-rescue for a
group of Bothan castaways forced down on Malrev 4. But
when they got to the backwater planet, the Rogues found
themselves first attacked by the Irrukiine, a doglike
aboriginal race, and then by the Bothans themselves.
There's some strange kind of hoodoo going down on Malrev
4, this planet promotes madness and deceit, and not even
the Rogues are immune!
The Bothan tourists that Wedge and crew have come to
save are neither Bothans nor tourists, they're a
consortium of spies assigned to follow the Emperor.
Wedge is glad to know this now, but he'd have been
happier to have discovered this fact before his crew
were trapped on this back-water planet called Malrev 4.
Now Rogue Squadron is in the middle of a firing ground,
between a twisted, self-styled "Lord of the Sith"
who calls Malrev 4 his home and the leader of the spies,
Girov, who desires the planet, its great temple, and all
its power for his own!
