SYNOPSIS
Timothy Zahn's trademark mix of action and intrigue has never been more evident that in this bold Star Wars epic. Legends will grow, treachery will abound, and lives will be irrevocably altered in the perilous fight to restore hope to a galaxy too long in darkness.

The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. Among those standing against them are Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa. The three have been sent to mediate a dispute between Rebel Alliance factions in Shelsha Sector. At the same time, Mara Jade–all of eighteen and years away from her fateful meeting with her future husband, Luke– is serving her evil master, Palpatine, tracking suspected treachery in the Empire. And the a once-loyal Imperial stormtrooper, Daric LaRone, commits a sudden and violent act of defiance.

Each of these actions, whether sanctioned or secret, will expose brutality and corruption, spur upheavals destined to shake the Empire to its core, and shape momentous events yet to come.

Poll
The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
