Plot summary[edit | edit source]

HOPE DIES
Part IV
Queen Trios of Shu-Torun, instrumental in outfitting the
Rebel Alliance's fleet, has betrayed her new allies by
sabotaging their cruisers' vital systems, leaving them
helpless, and selling the rebels out to the evil Galactic
Empire.

Although Trios has evaded capture, Princess Leia has
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, Han Solo
was forced to fly through the battle, dodging Star
Destroyer and Darth Vader himself, to deliver the intel
to the other pilots. Now, Luke Skywalker and ROGUE
SQUADRON are ready to take the fight back to the
Empire....
