If there is still interest in this I can run it freefrom. I've reqad or played almost everything with the word Star Wars in the title. About the only books I havn't read is the new ones where Jacen Solo becomes the next Sith Lord, and corrupts Luke's son Ben. It looked like he wasd even fixing to face off vs Luke, but I haven't found the rest of the series yet. But, I'm drifting off course.
Timeline: two years before the events of a New Hope(the origional movie).
Plot: The empire is in firm control of the galaxy. Fear and military might lead the way. Aliens must tread carefully lest htey face the wrath of the Xenophobic ruler Emperor Plapatine. The reqason of his hatred fpr aliens is unknown, but he has mercilessly driven many species into extimction beneath the white plasteel boots of his stormtroopers, and the dark fist of his apprentice Darth Vader.
Yet all are not afraid. Pockets of resistence have begun popping up on planets across the Galaxy though most of them are on the rim and outer rim where the empire's grasp is weakest. This ragtag group of underground cells has even earned a name. They are know as the rebellion to some, rebels to others. To the empire they are simple Rebel Scum to be wiped off the face of the galaxy like mud from the sole of Darth vader's boot.
Hearing rumors of a large planet sized battle station being built by the empire, the rebellion has assigned a small cell from Ord Mantell to Uncover the plans for the battle station. There is a small Imperial Depot on the far side of the planet. The first mission is to infiltrate the depot and recover any information you can.
No Jedi at this time, but one or two at most may be force sensitive.
