The Alliance to Restore the Republic has won a major victory against the evil Galactic Empire. To the emperor’s dismay, it has decimated his battle station, the Death Star, over the planet Yavin IV. Now he is looking for ways to strike back quickly. He has re-commissioned a former Imperial Shipyard on Cortani III, along with its master architect, a known enemy of the Alliance.
Fifteen years ago, Grand Moff Teivel, governor of the Cortanis System, designed one of Emperor Palpatine’s first superweapons: the “Suicide” Destroyer. In a crippling blow to the Alliance, this superweapon obliterated the moon H’rahk and its population of Alliance sympathizers.
The emperor has commissioned more of these powerful warships. But the shadows of the Imperial Shipyard hide secrets even from his gaze. Secrets such as conspiracies… and a mysterious ancient power from a lost civilization.
Despite their victory, the members of the Alliance know their war with the Empire is not yet over. They have learned of a sinister plot brewing on Cortani III. And they believe the time has come… to take revenge.
