While the Alliance fleet mounts a major campaign against a deadly warlord, Ysanne Isard has seized control of Thyferra, intending to use its precious supply of bacta to destabilize and destroy the New Republic. It falls to Rogue Squadron - undermanned, deprived of Alliance support and even weapons - to oppose Isard's dangerous designs, defeat her powerful complement of Star Destroyers, and free Thyferra from her iron rule. But when Isard discovers the Squadron's secret base, its ragtag group of pilots must scramble for survival in a winner-take-all battle against Isard's overwhelming and seemingly superior force.
The cover of the novel does not match the text. In the book, Rogue Squadron does not battle all of Ysanne Isard's Star Destroyers, and no Mon Calamari frigates helped in the Bacta War. The cover also shows the Lusankya as an Imperial Star Destroyer, while the text identifies it at as a Super Star Destroyer. Additionally, the X-wings on the cover are painted their normal colors, when in the story, each member of Rogue Squadron choses an individual paint job for his or her craft.
