It is a time of peace and prosperity in the Galaxy. With the Rise of the GALACTIC EMPIRE following the end of the CLONE WARS, the Galaxy has seen an economic boom like none other in its history.

Fearing dissention against their grand works, the Empire has dispatched private police to try and apprehend criminals to stop them from spreading their anti-Imperial propaganda across the galaxy.

One person is the PRINCESS OF ALDERAAN, LEIA ORGANA, daughter to Senator Organa. Aboard her ship she tries to flee from the lawful search of her ship for any wrong doing….

After the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic fell into Chaos. It was the rise of a Politician from the distant planet Naboo, that the first seeds of the Empire were born. Using the anarchy and dissolution, this PALPATINE, with the help of a Warrior known as Darth Vader, seized power in the vacuum and organized those most loyal to him into a council meant to lead the GALACTIC EMPIRE.

His power and prestige grew at an exponential rate until a vast majority of the former Republic has sworn their allegiance to him within just two years time. The rest he led a ‘Grand Crusade’ into furthest reaches of the galaxy to free the distant planets from what he called the ‘Darkest Shadow of the Republic’

But there were those who saw him for what he was, a cunning and brilliant politician who had somehow managed to trick trillions of citizens into seeing that sole power in him was the best course of action. Among these were the entire Jedi Council, who upon discovering that he was in fact a Dark Lord of the Sith, the Jedi’s antithesis and sworn enemy, and that he had in fact seduced one of their own to the dark side, launched a political and military campaign to try and force him from power.

But they were too late. The Emperor’s strength had grown too fast and consolidated long before they had even realized what was happening. Most were wiped out and hunted down by the Empire. But some survived…

Knowing that the Jedi were the greatest threat to his power, The Emperor has tasked his servant, Darth Vader, with their complete annihilation. Using Republic works as an excuse to clamp down on the population of the galaxy and become even more oppressive, Darth Vader has led a quest across the galaxy for over twenty years, hunting for the last of his former comrades.

Now, some have begun to realize just what the Empire really is and the first whispers of REBELLION are starting to drift on the galactic winds…

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 2×02 ‘In Nature, Ourselves’

Star Wars - The Empire Strikes Back

Based on characters created by George Lucas

Developed for VS by J. B. Gibson

Following their decisive victory over the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Yavin, the Rebel Alliance is left little time to celebrate its achievement as a vicious Imperial counterattack sends them reeling. Pushed back from stronghold after stronghold, the Alliance’s already wafer-thin lines of defence are stretched past breaking point under the Empire’s onslaught.

Retreating to the barren ice world of Hoth, the Alliance set up at Echo Base to catch their breath and plan their next moves – even as the shadows of the Empire loom large over the frozen tundras surrounding them.

With Sith Lord Darth Vader leading the charge, and young Jedi Luke Skywalker still searching for ways to develop his blossoming powers with the Force, Luke must reach deep within the reserves of his own soul to find the strength to defeat Vader in their inevitable confrontation, with the fate of all his friends and the entire Alliance at stake should he fail.

“Quiet you should be, predators around…”
