Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Book V, Part I
THE LAST FLIGHT OF THE HARBINGER
It is a crucial time for the Empire. Rebel forces
are proliferating across the galaxy, and their
elimination is imperative for Imperial reign.

For a mission this vital, the right team is

Rebellion, have not seen the last of the Empire's
wrath....
