Opening crawl[]

THE EMPIRE
VOL. 5
It is a time of danger throughout the galaxy. In the
wake of the legendary Clone Wars, the Galactic
Empire has risen to take control of every star
system in its reach.

But the evil Empire does not yet have the resources
to command all life forms within its territories. A
thriving underworld has developed, with traders,
black-market criminals and bounty hunters finding
opprotunity in the current chaos.

Fortunately, there are still beings who believe in a galaxy
without fear. Two witnesses of many of the Clone Wars'
key events, the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, have survived
many misadventures together in the service of those who
would rebel against the Empire.

While the events of the Clone Wars have been wiped from
C-3PO's memory, and become inaccessible to R2-D2, the
droids' core personalities remain. And despite their intentions
to serve those who need their help, trouble always seems to
find them....
