Star Wars 14 is the fourteenth issue of the Legends comic book series Star Wars. It was written by Archie Goodwin, illustrated by Carmine Infantino, and first published on May 9, 1978 by Marvel Comics. The issue features the story "The Sound of Armageddon!," in which the battle on Drexel comes to an end.
On the water world of Drexel, Governor Quarg has used his sonic jammer to cause the Millennium Falcon to crash into the water near his giant city-ship. Han is believed dead, while Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and the droids are imprisoned inside of Quarg's galleon. Quarg has simultaneously been waging a war against the Dragon Lords who even now attack his ship, riding atop giant sea-dragons.
Quarg has now turned his sonic jammer towards an even greater prize—a stolen Imperial battlecruiser locked in Drexel's orbit. The pirate, Crimson Jack and his first mate, Jolli, attempt to break free of their ship's systems-lock, but find that they are trapped.
Han, meanwhile, is not dead at all. The Dragon Lords have rescued him and have taken him to a secret underground cave. The leader of the Dragon Lords tells Han that Quarg's sonic jammer is driving the sea serpents mad and slowly killing them. Han agrees to help if they agree to help him in return by salvaging the Millennium Falcon.
Governor Quarg has found Princess Leia hiding within the Millennium Falcon and chases her back onto the city-ship. Believing that Han is dead, Chewbacca goes berserk and breaks free of the prison. Luke has been forced into doing Quarg's dirty work until he reunites with Han who explains to him what the sonic jammer is doing to the dragons. Luke rescues Leia and knocks Quarg from the city-ship into the ocean, killing him, just as the jamming equipment is destroyed by the Falcon.
