Plot summary[edit | edit source]

THE DESTINY PATH
Part III
The Empire has broken the Rebel Alliance's
security codes and is using this advantage to
expose and destroy their dwindling forces.

Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia narrowly
avoided Darth Vader's trap on Cloud City. But
Han Solo was taken by the bounty hunter,
Boba Fett, and Luke learned that Vader may
be his father.

Luke's path is now uncertain. Strange
visions of a robed figure with his lost
lightsaber compel Luke to return to Cloud
City with Leia and Lando Calrissian to
retrieve the blade....

  2. The events of Star Wars 3 take place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back to 3 ABY, it can be deduced that the events of Star Wars 3 also take place around that year.
