Fool's Bargain was a novella which was written by Timothy Zahn in 2004 and was originally in eBook format. The story is a supplement to his novel Survivor's Quest and was subsequently included in the paperback version which was published on December 28, 2004 by Del Rey.

It is the only book that is completely dedicated to Imperial stormtroopers and that shows a story solely from their point of view.

Plot summary[]

In a disguised transport, Aurek Company of the 501st Legion prepares to attack the stronghold of the Warlord in order to free the Eickarie people. The troopers of Unit Aurek-Seven leave the transport and proceed to the alleyway they have been assigned to. The Eickarie named Su-mil emerges from a nearby cantina and invites the stormtroopers into a building where they make a bargain: the troopers help to free the Eickarie prisoners before attempting to capture the Warlord in exchange for a way into the fortress.

The Eickaries and stormtroopers use an underground passage and gain entry to the fortress, where they fight their way to the prison area. After convincing the Eickarie prisoners to join the battle, they split up. Two stormtroopers and many Eickaries returned to the city via the tunnel well the other troopers and Eickaries proceeded to the center of the fortress. After fighting past an ambush, the second party secures the fortress and captures the Warlord. Twister then invites Su-mil to join the Empire of the Hand. Su-mil accepts and joins Aurek-seven.
