Opening crawl[]

Luke Skywalker, perhaps the first of the new Jedi Knights, slowly recovers from his devastating confrontation with his nemesis, Darth Vader, in the depths of Bespin's Cloud City. Intent on aiding the Rebel Alliance in its continuing battle against the Galactic Empire, Luke joins his long-time companions Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca the Wookiee, gambler Lando Calrissian, and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 on a desperate mission to rescue their friend, Han Solo. Captured by Darth Vader and given to the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, Solo was frozen in carbonite for delivery to Jabba the Hutt.

But elsewhere in the galaxy, Darth Vader prepares to continue his quest to find young Skywalker and draw him to the dark side of the Force. Vader's master, Emperor Palpatine, is busy overseeing his own intricate web of secret operations, bickering advisors, and carefully laid plans to crush the Rebels. And lurking beneath all of this waits another ... one who plots to force Vader from the picture and assume the role as the Emperor's most powerful servant. Prince Xizor, ruler of the vast criminal organization known as Black Sun, has waited long enough for this moment — a chance to take revenge on Darth Vader and play a much greater role in shaping the galaxy's destiny.

Prince Xizor's plot is set into motion ...
