Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a group of Imperial Moffs are plotting to remove the Sith Emperor and his apprentice. Their betrayal has been a long time coming, and they have prepared a group of clone stormtroopers loyal only to them. Their first task is to remove Darth Vader from the picture and send him on a fool's errand, but he is saved by Boba Fett. The conspirators plan starts falling apart when the members betray one another. The final Moff gets all the way to the Emperor's Throne Room, but is executed by Palpatine himself, who reveals he knew of the plan the whole time and wanted to remove any threats to his power.
