As Princess Leia puts together her stealth squadron to find the Rebellion a new home base and smoke out the Imperial spy in their midst, Han Solo and Chewie run into a little trouble when Boba Fett shows up in the middle of their scheduled rendezvous. That Han is able to allude Fett (and the Star Destroyer that shows up as reinforcements for the bounty hunter) is no surprise, but the final destination of Coruscant certainly makes you wonder just what kind of mission Solo and his Wookiee companion have been given.
This issue introduces us to the members of Leia’s team, who will work in secret and separately from the rest of the Rebellion. Along with Leia the team consists of Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, Rus Kal, Prithi, Falback Kord, Tess Alder, Ardana Cinn, and Gramm Cortess.
Although we don’t get an appearance by Darth Vader here we do get a short scene with Col. Bircher taking over command of the Star Destroyer Devastator to hunt down and kill as many Rebels as possible as the Dark Lord of the Sith finds himself reassigned on a special mission for the Emperor. Worth a look.
