"…the next arc begins in issue #50. Issue #50 is going to be this very, very big story that my entire run centers around. "Mutiny at Mon Cala" is the lead-in to something kind of cataclysmic and huge in scale."
―Kieron Gillen[src]

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

HOPE DIES
Part I
The murder of their beloved king at the hands of the
evil Empire has inspired open revolt on Mon Cala!

Thanks to a timely counterattack by Admiral Ackbar
as well as the heroics of Luke Skywalker, Princess
Leia and Han Solo, the Mon Calamari's powerful
fleet now stands ready to fight for peace and justice
with the Rebel Alliance.

Armed with new ships and new allies, the Rebellion is
finally poised to take back the galaxy from the
Empire in earnest. But the Rebels also owe their
recent victory to Queen Trios of Shu-Torun and her
defection to their cause. But Trios may have plans of
her own....
