Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

THE CATASTROPHE CON
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....

Development[edit | edit source]

Due to a printer error, pages 2–3 and 28–29 of Doctor Aphra 25 were printed into some second print variants of the Marvel comic book Return of Wolverine 1.[3]

  2. Doctor Aphra 22 is set between issues 21 and 40 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. The events of issue 21 take place after the Battle of Yavin, which marks the beginning of 0 ABY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, while the rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of issue 40. Given that Galactic Atlas dates the destruction of the base to 3 ABY, the issue must therefore have been set between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
