Plot summaryEdit

An Imperial armada led by Admiral Mils Giel's flagship is transporting a captured Teezl to the Imperial capital. The Empire intends to use the Teezl's special communication abilities to allow instantaneous communication between Imperials throughout the galaxy. The Rebel Alliance knows about their plans and have devised a scheme to foil them, using specially modified TIE fighters to attack the Imperial armada.

Four Rebel pilots, Luke Skywalker, Shira Brie, Hanc Thorben, and Alph, pose as a returning Imperial patrol to bypass the sentries and attack the Star Destroyers causing confusion in their ranks. Giel orders to have the Teezl disrupt all communication frequencies except for the Imperial war band, preventing the Rebel intruders from talking with each other on their modified frequency. Luke finds the flagship where the Teezl is located, but there is a TIE fighter in his line of fire. Unable to use his communication device to detect whether the fighter is a friendly, Luke calls upon the Force to be his guide, and he determines that the fighter is an enemy. He destroys the fighter and then proceeds to fire upon the ship which houses the Teezl, disabling it and destroying the Teezl.

Luke returns to the Rebel base on Arbra to discover that Thorben brought back a visual recording of Luke's battle with the last TIE fighter, and from that recording they discovered that the pilot of the TIE that Luke destroyed was fellow Rebel Shira Brie.

Behind the scenesEdit

This issue showcases all the three divisions of Electronic Warfare: Electronic Support (signal intelligence): The imperials attempt listen to rebels' radio signals and locate them (identify the rebel TIEs). Electronic attack (communications jamming): The imperials with the help of teezl attempt to block all radio frequences the rebels might be using. Electronic Protection (preventing enemy signal intelligence): The rebels change their normal radio frequency into a frequency previously used by cargo transports.
