At the Imperial Base on Yinchorr, also serving as the Headquarters for the 407th Stormtrooper Division, Anson Trask attempts to find his squad, and has a run in with Darth Maleval. Sergeant Ran Harkas steps in and saves the "Noob" from the Sith's wrath and takes him to Joker Squad, Company C, Battalion 9. There, Anson meets Jes Gistang, Hondo Karr and Vax Potorr. The troopers welcome him by inviting him to join the bet they have on how long he will live. Lieutenant Gil Cassel informs Joker Squad that Grand Admiral Veed and the Moff Council have ordered the termination of the 908th division on Borosk for defecting from the New Empire and joining the former Emperor Roan Fel and that it is Joker Squad's job to see it done.
On Borosk, Joker Squad is assigned to capture and secure the gun and shield placements along the perimeter wall of the 908th's Headquarters. After they secure the gun platform the troop is allowed to rest for the night. Anson and Jes talk about their reasons for signing up with The Empire and Jes goes on to tell the brief back stories of the other members in Joker Squad. Lieutenant Cassel is confronted by Darth Maleval who tells him that his idea of a truce with the 908th is out of the question and that an example will be made of the 908th. Hondo comes up behind Darth Maleval with a drawn blade and is subsequently Force thrown in a wall. As Maleval walks away, talk of joining the 908th or simply walking away from the fight arise but Sergeant Harkas reminds them that a soldiers duty is to complete the mission no matter the cost. One by one the members of Joker Squad agree.
The next day the squad breaches the main fortress of the 908th Headquarters and press into the main mess hall, were Vex steps on a mine and is killed. Jes is killed when enemy fire hits one of the power packs on her waist and Sergeant Harkas is severely wounded by the ensuing explosion. When the battle is over, Darth Maleval brings forth a bound 908th prisoner, Captain Jared Cassel, Lieutenant Cassel's brother and orders Lieutenant Cassel to execute his own brother. The Lieutenant refuses and as Darth Maleval raises his lightsaber to kill both men, Hondo charges the Sith's back with his sword. Darth Maleval back hands Hondo with a clenched fist before lassoing Hondo's neck with a shock whip and electrocuting him. Anson shoots Darth Maleval in the back killing the Sith and saving Hondo. It is reported that Darth Maleval and Hondo Karr were killed in battle. Sergeant Harkas is taken away by a med-droid leaving Anson the only remaining member of Joker Squad. Anson is approached by a "Newbie" looking for Joker Squad to which he replies, "I'm it." The two troopers walk away to find their transport ships.
