As the dreaded Darth Vader enforces Emperor Palpatine’s sinister will to create a world-killing satellite of doom, the threat of rebellion still looms. But Palpatine has a grand plan to quash dissent through chilling terror. From inception to completion, construction of the Death Star is awash in the intrigues, hidden agendas, unexpected revelations, and daring gambits of those involved on every level. The brightest minds and boldest egos, the most ambitious and corrupt, the desperate and the devious, all have a stake in the Death Star–and its potential to control the fate of the galaxy. Soldiers and slaves, loyalists and Rebels, spies and avengers, the innocent and the evil–all their paths and fates will cross and intertwine as the Death Star moves from its maiden voyage to an explosive showdown.
