When our heroes stop off on the water planet Aquaris to meet with new Rebel allies, they find that at least one of those allies may be an Imperial spy. Han and Leia both have plans to trap the traitor by using Luke's droids as bait – but their plans may go awry when Luke and Han wind up in the clutches of a deadly denizen of the deep!

  The rebels return to their base, only to find it
under attack by the Empire. Leia detours them to

underwater rebel base. The base's leader Silver Fyre, a
former pirate and mercenary, has just invited the rebels to
participate in an underwater hunt with her and her second-
in-command, Kraaken ...
