Excellent addition to the story of Rogue Squadron

Now that the New Republic have taken the diseased planet Coroscant they must deal with the fact that Tycho Celchu has been arrested for the murder of Corran Horn and is on trial defended by Nawara Ven.

Meanwhile we discover that Corran Horn is actually alive and being held prisoner by the head of Imperial intelligence Ysanne Issard in Lusankya. He is determined to escape and with the help of other Rebel prisoners he eventually manages to do so. Whilst also discovering that Tycho was never an Imperial agent. And in fact has the same resistance grade as he himself was given 'resistance on primary phase.'

On his escape he discovers that Lusankya is actually an Imperial SSD hidden on Coroscant. He finds himself in a hidden part of a museum that contains a hoard of Jedi belongings. He takes a lightsaber to help in his escape. He then battles a few guards who have been sent to kill the escapee. Using a communication device he contacts his robot to ask for assistance.

Meanwhile, Issard orders the Lusankya to leave the planet, this is where all the parts of the story come together. Corran appears in the court as a witness for Tycho in the murder case, The rest of Rogue Squadron are battling the Lusankya which is firing at the planet's shields in an attempt to leave. And Wedge discovers that the true traitor in Rogue Squadron is Erisi Dlarit. Who joins the Lusankya on its escape from Coroscant.
