The second Dying Star has been destroyed, the Emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows in opposition to the Empire, and main victories for the Insurgent Alliance. However the battle for freedom is way from over.
Because the Empire reels from its important defeats on the Battle of Endor, the Insurgent Alliance—now a fledgling New Republic—presses its benefit by searching down the enemy’s scattered forces earlier than they’ll regroup and retaliate. However above the distant planet Akiva, an ominous present of the enemy’s energy is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches Imperial Star Destroyers collect like birds of prey circling for a kill, however he’s taken captive earlier than he can report again to the New Republic leaders.
In the meantime, on the planet’s floor, former insurgent fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world—conflict weary, able to reunite together with her estranged son, and keen to construct a brand new life in some distant place. However when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles’s pressing misery name, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter just isn’t but over. What she doesn’t know is simply how shut the enemy is—or how decisive and harmful her new mission might be.
Decided to protect the Empire’s energy, the surviving Imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a high-secret emergency summit—to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. However they haven’t reckoned on Norra and her newfound allies—her technical-genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate Imperial defector—who’re ready to do no matter they need to to finish the Empire’s oppressive reign as soon as and for all.
