Plot summary[]

REVENGE OF THE ASTROMECH
It is a time of turmoil in the galaxy. While the evil
Galactic Empire remains strong, the Rebel Alliance
continues to undermine Imperial forces throughout the
galaxy in their fight for freedom.

An Imperial siege on Tureen VII compelled Alliance heroes
Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo, to intervene.
Darth Vader dispatched Scar Squadron, an elite group of
stormtroopers, to stop them. Although humiliated and
disgraced when the rebel forces were able to break the
siege, Scar Squadron did not emerge empty handed–they
captured C-3PO.

Scar Squadron has turned their focus to extracting as many
rebel secrets as possible from the protocol droid.
Meanwhile, R2-D2, concerned for his fellow droid and
friend, has abandoned the rest of the rebel force in order
to launch a solo rescue mission....[3]
