The time is shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Shocked and demoralized by their stinging defeat at Rebel hands, and now under the masterful guidance of Darth Vader, the Imperial forces are slowly regrouping for their next great offensive. The Emperor, obsessed with stamping out the last organized resistance to his rule, is scouring the galaxy for the hidden Rebel fleet. If he can find the Rebels quickly and bring them to battle, he will win, and his rule will be unopposed. To comb the vast reaches of space, the Emperor has stripped the Empires interior of many of its troops and ships. Believing this area to be secure and well beyond the Rebellion’s reach, he has left just a skeleton force to protect it.

It is a time of chaos and change, but also a time of great opportunity. These are the moments in which a being or a small group can reach out and have a huge impact on the galaxy, to take what they want, be it for the Empire, the Rebellion or for themselves.
