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.

Behind the scenesEdit
The cover of the novel is incorrect. In the book, there is no confrontation between Rogue Squadron and all of Ysanne Isard's Star Destroyers, and there were no Mon Calamari frigates that helped in the Bacta War. The cover also incorrectly shows the Lusankya as a Imperial Star Destroyer; as well, the X-wings are painted their normal colors, when in the story, each member of Rogue Squadron choses an individual paint job for their craft.
