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.
