It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Although the Death Star has been destroyed, Imperial forces have driven the Rebel forces from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy.
Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters led by Luke Skywalker has established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth.
However, Imperial forces led by Darth Vader found, and destroyed the Rebel’s base on Hoth. The Rebellion is now scattered again, finding it harder and harder to regroup, as the Imperial Navy is relentless in hunting them down.
Skywalker faced Darth Vader in an epic battle on Cloud City on the planet Bespin. Little is known of what happened, and Skywalker has not been heard from since. It is feared that Vader was successful in capturing or killing Luke.
With Han Solo captured by Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker dead or captured, Leia Organa can not be relied upon for the time being. The scattered leaders of the Rebellion risk a meeting, planning the future of the Rebellion, and to organize a mission to discover what happened to Luke Skywalker.
