"Marooned" was a comic in Star Wars Tales 22 and collected in Star Wars Tales Volume 6 and Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The New Republic Vol. 1. Lucas Marangon did the script, artwork, and coloring, and the lettering was done by Michael Heisler.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

The Scout trooper.

The comic is set on Endor, thirteen months after the battle. A Rebel trooper and a scout trooper, both having been abandoned by their respective sides and neither knowing who won the battle, run into each other. After attempting to take each other captive, then agreeing to a truce and talking, the Imperial noted how stupid the Rebel strategy in the battle was.

They run across some Ewoks, who take the Imperial captive but leave the Rebel free. The Rebel has the Ewoks let the trooper go, explaining that they didn't touch him because, unlike the stormtroopers, his uniform and training was not designed with the sole purpose to intimidate, something that does not fit into a peaceful society.

The Rebel trooper.

The two go to the station that housed the second Death Star shield generator, and see it destroyed, realizing that the Rebels have indeed won the war. They pick up a distress beacon and follow to its source—a crashed Imperial Star Destroyer. The Rebel trooper uses its navigational beacon to contact a passing freighter to take them offworld.

When it lands, however, he agrees with the Rebel that he has no place in the peaceful society that the Rebellion will make now that the Galactic Empire is defeated, and decides to stay behind. The last panel, presumably a flash-forward, shows him sunbathing on top of an abandoned AT-ST, with his armor discarded and letting his hair grow out.
