Synopsis:
The crime and death caused by Jabba the Hutt is nothing compared to the chaos created in the wake of his demise! Jabba's legacy is a cache of stolen Imperial hardware and weapons, hidden somewhere on the desert world of Tatooine. Whoever finds the treasure will have enough firepower to rule the planet, perhaps even the sector! And that means Rogue Squadron must find it first, or else find it aimed at their heads!
A criminal warlord has stolen a vital bit of information, so vital, in fact, that Wedge and the Rogue Squadron were going to steal it themselves! Rather than simply steal it, they'll now have to fight for it! Through the heated deserts of Tatooine, in the midst of a gang war sparked by the death of Jabba the Hutt, the Rogue Squadron risk life and limb for the Rebel Alliance!
Jabba the Hutt is dead, and in the ensuing scramble for power, a secret Imperial weapons cache could be the key to victory. But only one being alive knows the location of the hidden weapons cache, Firith Olan. While that makes Firith a very powerful being, it also makes him a prime target. In a desperate race to uncover the missing weapons, as the criminals converge to fill the role of the dead Hutt, Wedge and Rogue Squadron find themselves smack in the middle of Battleground: Tatooine!
A handful of Tatooine outlaws and a mountain full of Imperial weaponry are a deadly combination: deadly enough to make allies of X-wing Rogue Squadron and a troop of Imperial Special Forces!
