Summary

Luke awakens in a hut in Bright Tree Village after dreaming of Vader sans mask, to find the droids staring at him. 3PO brings him to a meeting discussing the slavers and Imperials seen on Kashyyyk and Herdessa. At Ackbar's request, Luke is training new recruits, but Leia can tell he's troubled, and after the meeting they discuss his dreams and resultant fear and guilt. Later, he trains Kiro, Rik, Chihdo, Dani, Barney, and a reptilian named Dracos, who urge him to teach them the Force. He refuses, but that night has the same dream. The next day, a small ship enters the system, ignoring all hails and evading all X-Wings. Han nearly downs it with an energy cannon, but Luke senses something and says to let it land. The pilot, Prince Denin of Naldar, demands military aid and Jedi training, for the Empire is killing his people. Leia is irked by his manners and Luke refuses to train him, but they agree to seek aid from Ackbar. However, Ackbar cannot spare the resources and is very distant to Luke and the others. Barney empathizes, for Belderone is near Naldar and many Belderones took refuge there. Though he won't send forces, Ackbar sends Luke and the others to Naldar to help out. Denin understands, but blames Leia for Ackbar's decision. That night aboard the Falcon , Luke dreams of Yoda, Ben Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker, who tell him to right a great wrong done; Vader's image changes, but Luke awakens before seeing who is its. As the ship flies over the ruined capital city, TIEs attack and Han are forced to crash, damaging the Halpiton circuits. As Leia and the droids head into town to find new circuits, Luke, Lando, and Denin seek survivors of the local resistance group. In a deserted building, R2 taps a computer to find the circuits, seeing records of the royal family. Denin finds the dying body of Foss, the only other survivor of the city, who names the Empire as the culprit, then dies. Strangely, he calls Denin "Princess." Sensing trouble, Luke pulls Denin and Lando down as approaching troops open fire. Leia gives the circuits to Han and says she learned that Denin dies two years earlier defending his family in an Imperial raid. Luke and company are surrounded, then Flint approaches in armor. Now a Dark Lord, he and Luke face off as Denin and Lando run to safety. At the Falcon , Leia confronts Denin, who admits she is really Vila, his sister. When he died, she tried to fulfill his life-long dream of being a Jedi. Trying to reach Flint, Luke says he's Vader's son. Flint doesn't believe him, but his resolve weakens. A trooper tries to shoot Luke, but Han arrives and kills him. Flint's troops stand ready to level Naldar and other Alliance worlds, but seeing Barney, Flint is saddened and unable to kill them. A trooper tells his comrades that Flint has betrayed them, but Vila grabs his lightsaber and kills the guard before he can shoot Flint. However, she is shot in the process and dies in Luke's arms. Flint realizes how evil he has become, renounces the Empire, and self-destructs his base, as Vila joins Denin on a spiritual plane, where Yoda waits to train them both. EnsViews Comic Review
