Publisher's summary[]

CUE THE IMPERIAL MARCH! After a lifetime of betrayals, all DOCTOR APHRA's mynocks are finally coming home to roost. Murder-droids, Force-active spores, heartbroken lovers and vengeful lawmen — but they're all eclipsed by the tall, dark shadow that now falls across her. HE IS HERE.

Plot summary[]

Part VI
Doctor Aphra's greed for an ancient lightsaber
guarded by a swarm of Force-powered hookspores has
doomed Accresker Jail! Under Imperial interrogation,
she has revealed the biohazard in an attempt to keep
her darkest secret safe: knowledge of Darth Vader's
plot to supplant the Emperor.

Fearing contagion, the Empire has fled and abandoned
the jail on a collision course with a nearby planet.
Aphra was able to cut a deal with vigilante Tam Posla
for an escape shuttle (by delivering into Tam's custody
the shape-shifter Lopset disguised as wanted criminal
Cornelius Evazan).

But the murderous droids Triple-Zero and Beetee-One
have dashed Aphra's latest escape attempt. And Darth
Vader himself has finally arrived to silence Aphra once
and for all. Of course she may have one final,
desperate gamble up her sleeve....

  2. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 25 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 25 have to have occurred in that year.
