The Empire is dead and the New Republic lives, but the dark side's thirst for vengeance is never-ending.

Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader are dead. The Empire has been toppled by the triumphant Rebel Alliance, and the New Republic is ascendant. But the struggle against the dark side is not over. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, and their faithful comrades have little time to savor victory before being called on to defend the newly liberated galaxy from powerful remnants of the vanquished Empire. The most dealy of these, a legion of back-armored stormtroopers, do the brutal bidding of the newly risen warlord Shadowspawn, committing acts of piracy and terrorism against the flegling New Republic. Another reign of darkness under the Sith is something General Luke Skywallker cannot, and will not, risk. Mobilizing the ace fighters of Rogue Squadron, Luke, Han, and Leia set out to take the battle to the enemy. But their imminent attack on Mindor will be playing directly into the hands of their cunning new adversary.
