Luke Skywalker and the Red Squadron are flying escort for a secret Rebel intelligence operation on a supposedly unpopulated planet, when they run into an unexpected Imperial patrol. With half the squad trapped on the ground, and the secrecy of the mission in peril, things don't look like they could get any worse for the Rebels. But then Luke makes a discovery that hearkens back to the galaxy's last major conflict—the Clone Wars—and it's a surprise that could either save them, or destroy them!

Another groundbreaking story that helps to tie the prequel films to the original Trilogy—in a way that will surprise and excite Star Wars fans of every generation!
