The Empire has been broken. Having suffered a major defeat with the destruction of the second DEATH STAR and the death of Emperor Palpatine, the galaxy has been thrown into chaos as the Rebellion seeks to use this time to liberate more systems across the galaxy. Many Imperials have retreated to the Outer Rim, hoping to reorganize and regroup.
Others seek to consolidate their power and establish their bases on systems or sectors far away from the Galactic Center. One such planet is ONDERON, a verdrant and dangerous jungle world. A small rebel cell has achieved such a victory when it took over a secret Imperial listening post WHISPER BASE.
The now use this base to stage operations to weaken the Imperial hold on the planet and prepare for the inevitable counterstrike of MOFF DARDANO.
