This book collects together the following comic stories

  • What Sin Loyalty?
    Trooper TK-622 is proud to do his duty in the service of the emperor, but he suspects that that may not be the case for every member of the battle station's crew. Strange "accidents" and equipment malfunctions point to the presence of a saboteur, but can the trooper prove it before the station goes into action above Yavin?
    Occurs during the Battle of Yavin.

  • The Savage Heart
    Vader alone.
    Vader the undefeated.
    Vader the savage.
    After the destruction of the Death Star, Darth Vader attempts to make it to an Imperial safe haven in his crippled TIE fighter, only to crash land in a savage wilderness. Forced to make his way on foot, attacked by ferocious native carnivores, Vader shucks off the restraints of Imperial order and Sith schemes and embraces his raw, wild power.
    Occurs immediately after the Battle of Yavin.

  • To The Last Man
    He may have washed-out as a pilot at the Imperial Academy, but Lt. Janek Sunber has found a new home in the infantry. Hoping for a post on a world where he could see some action against the Rebels, he instead finds himself on the jungle world of Maridun as part of a regiment overseeing the construction of a new base. But just when heís resigned himself to a long, uneventful tour of duty, things heat up. The alien natives are restless, and on the hunt for human skulls! Sunber is about to learn one of the truths about the infantry: all service is sacrifice, and in the infantry that sacrifice is usually in blood! 
    Imperial Lt. Janek Sunber wanted to see action, and now his wish has come true, in spades! Sunber's infantry regiment on the jungle world of Maridun is cut off from the rest of the Empire. Their communications have been destroyed, and their way out of the jungle is blocked by thousands of hostile native Amanin. Hopelessly out-numbered, they must choose between combat or surrender, but either decision may mean death!
    Thousands of angry alien Amanin versus less than sixty Imperial troops. So much for being "the glue that holds the galaxy together."
    The Imperials are doomed, but newly promoted Captain Janek Sunber is determined that they will sell their lives dearly. If only some of his fellow officers exhibited the same courage, they might have a chance. But is it bravery, or foolhardiness that drives Sunber? And, if they all die, who will tell the story of their sacrifice? Who will record the glory of their final stand?
    Occurs shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

  • Target: Vader
    Having failed to locate the Rebelsí new base after the destruction of the Death Star, Vader sets out to redeem himself by strong-arming his underworld contacts for information about the Alliance. But other deeds from Vaderís past return to haunt him as a group of aliens attempt to kill the Sith Lord as revenge for a slaughter he perpetrated on their homeworld.
    Fighting vengeful aliens is all in a dayís work. The real challenge for Vader is coming to terms with the man he once was, and the "monster" he has become.
    Occurs shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

These stories occur during and shortly after the Battle of Yavin.
