Plot summary[]

THE CATASTROPHE CON
Part IV
Doctor Aphra's escape from Accresker Jail was thwarted
when current lover Magna Tolvan's rescue became a battle
against Aphra's ex Sana Starros, herself on a rebel mission to
kidnap the doctor.

Aphra's greed for an ancient artifact has likewise caused
chaos: the treasure is guarded by a swarm of mysteriously
Force-powered deadly spores. Under Imperial interrogation
she has revealed their existence in an attempt to keep her
darkest secret: knowledge of Darth Vader's plot to supplant
the Emperor.

Fearing contagion, the Empire has abandoned the floating
jail — now on a collision course with an inhabited planet!
Meanwhile, enemies with scores to settle from Aphra's past,
like the murderous droid Triple-Zero and the vigilante
Tam Posla, close in....

  2. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 23 are set between issues 22 and 40 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. In issue 22, Accresker Jail is decommissioned. Crimson Reign 3 states that Jeremoch Colton had been in the wreckage-prison for over three years when Madelin Sun visited him. Crimson Reign 3 issue also states that he was imprisoned after the capture of the Tantive IV, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. The rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of Doctor Aphra 40, and Galactic Atlas dates the base's destruction to 3 ABY. Therefore, the events of Doctor Aphra 23 have to have occurred in that year.
