This book collects together the following comic stories:
Information obtained from a
prisoner captured on Jabiim has set Darth Vader on
the trail of the Rebel Fleet. No Alliance defense
can divert Vader from his target, and if he is
successful it will mean the destruction of the fleet
and the end of the Rebellion.
But there is one small hope for the Rebels, and it
all comes down to one man pursuing his duties with
an unshakable zeal, and remaining a "model
officer" to the end...
The Wrong Side
of the War
Fresh from the killing fields of Jabiim, where the
Empire has virtually wiped out the populace of that
world, Imperial Lieutenant Janek Sunber is sent to
the quiet prison base on Kalist VI. But, unbeknownst
to the Empire, the Rebels have designs on Kalist
Base both for its desirable fuel supplies, and for
the presence of a very important prisoner-one of
their own who has already attracted the interest of
Sunber doesn't know it, but he's on a collision
course with an old friend who is with the Rebels,
and he finds himself wondering which of them is on
the wrong side of the war.
Devotion to duty has put Imperial Lieutenant Janek
Sunber once more on the front lines. First as part
of an intense ground battle, where the last of a
planet's freedom fighters are desperately holding
on, then as a glorified prison guard at an Imperial
base where prisoners are put to work for the benefit
of the Empire. It's not the career Sunber imagined
he'd have in the Imperial Infantry, but a Rebel
surprise attack on the base may give Sunber another
chance to distinguish himself--or die trying!
In his new post as prison guard at the Imperial base
on Kalist IV, Lt. Janek Sunber is forced to weigh
what he knows he should do against what he can
do when he comes up against the corrupt status quo.
But conflict with his fellow officers is just the
tip of the iceberg when it comes to challenges
facing the young lieutenant. Unbeknownst to the
Empire, the Rebels have infiltrated the base!
Dissent in the ranks! Janek Sunber finds himself at
odds-and at gunpoint-with his fellow officers over
the treatment of Imperial prisoners. Hardly an
auspicious start to his new assignment, and made all
the worse because the internal conflict blinds the
Imperials to the presence of Rebel infiltrators in
their midst! But the biggest shock to Sunber-and the
Rebels-is yet to come, from a most unexpected
quarter! Allegiances are strained, identities are
revealed, and a major strike against the Empire is
in the offing.
Inside the Imperial base on Kalist VI, an undercover
Rebel strike force is on a mission vital to the
continued existence of the Alliance. Everything has
gone according to plan, but the one eventuality for
which no one could have prepared is the presence of
Imperial Lieutenant Janek Sunber-or how his presence
will impact the Rebel team. Duty to the Empire has
asked much of Sunber and offered little in return,
but he has never wavered in his dedication. Now, a
shocking discovery has landed him at a crossroads,
and the time has come for him to decide whether to
devote himself to order, or justice.
The jig is up!
The Rebel intelligence operatives inside the
Imperial base on Kalist VI have been discovered.
Yet, even with their cover blown, this stalwart crew
of Alliance heroes is determined to follow through
with their mission no matter what the cost! As
Imperial forces close in swiftly and mercilessly,
will this band of Rebels need to be rescued from
their own rescue mission?
These stories occur approximately 8 months after the
Battle of Yavin.
