Being Darth Vader’s son must be tough to take, but before Luke Skywalker found out about his parentage, he was forced to deal with the horrible consequences of being the son of Anakin Skywalker.
After accompanying Princess Leia on a mission to offer Rebel Alliance support to the world of Jabiim, Luke quickly finds himself a prisoner for crimes committed by his father during the Clone Wars. It turns out Anakin, on orders from above, pulled all Republic support off Jabiim, leaving it to the mercies of the Droid army.
Luke, with Leia’s help, must prove he’s not the villain Anakin has been made out to be by the Jabiimi, even as the Empire, led by Vader himself, close in on them.
This story, set just months after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, is one of those compelling pieces that only works now that George Lucas’ whole six-film series has been told and the creators do a fine job of tying together all those years of continuity into something original and compelling.
