The New Republic has entered a period of relative peace, rebuilding after the Empire's unsuccessful bid for dominance.

While the New Republic is forced to combat Admiral Daala and her plan to destroy Coruscant, Luke Skywalker must battle something even more dangerous: the spirit of a Sith Lord who plans to enslave Luke's students and bend the galaxy to his will ...
