Plot summary[edit | edit source]

HOPE DIES
Part III
Queen Trios of Shu-Torun, instrumental in outfitting a
powerful new fleet of Mon Calamari ships for the Rebel
Alliance, has betrayed her new allies by sabotaging their
cruisers' vital systems and selling the rebels out to the
evil Galactic Empire.

Although Trios has evaded capture by Princess Leia, the
rebels have discovered that the devious queen's
sabotage did not disable the fail-safes of their hangar
bay doors, which will unseal should any fighter
broadcast a rebel signal.

With comm systems down across the fleet, the
Rebellion's only hope for survival rests with Han Solo's
ability to fly his way through the battle and deliver that
information to Luke Skywalker and the other pilots. But
first, Han's got to shake Darth Vader off his tail....
