Star Wars: Shattered Empire #2
Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader may be gone, but the state of the galaxy hasn’t improved much. Star systems everywhere are descending into anarchy as the Empire tightens its grip from the Core to the Outer Rim.
17 days after the Battle of Endor, and the goal of restoring peace and freedom is far more complicated than blowing up the Death Star. Rebel pilot Shara Bey frantically leads a battle against a squadron of TIE fighters and an AT-AT wreaking havoc across Cawa City.
While word of the rebel triumph has spread in some quarters, in others there remains only the sanctioned newsfeeds of the Empire, an unending stream of propaganda and terror that has been a way of life for as long as many can remember.
For the rebels, wearied and exhausted by their long struggle, it is becoming clear that the war is not yet over. Scattered Imperial Forces persist, as committed as ever to upholding the legacy of darkness its Emperor brought to the galaxy.
