Part V

Queen Trios’ betrayal has left the heroic Rebel Alliance scattered and at the mercy of the evil Galactic Empire! Unable to make contact with their allies, Leia Organa,Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO have become stranded on the isolationist moon of Hubin.

Desperate to get back into the fight, and with no other way to call for aid, Luke has activated a homemade communications beacon–blind to the trouble it might cause Hubin’s ruler Thane Markona, his daughter Tula and the people of the moon.

And the rebels’ old foes, the elite stormtroopers of SCAR SQUADRON, have discovered Luke and his friends after capturing and interrogating Sana Starros. Now, Hubin’s martical code demands that Luke and SCAR’s Commander Kreel duel…to the death….
