During an effort to flee Lothal, the crew is confronted by a powerful new foe, Sith Lord Darth Vader. Barely able to survive their encounter with the Dark Lord, the rebel crew returns to their fledgling fleet, unaware that Vader has a more devious plan in mind. The rebels must find a way to survive this formidable agent of the Empire if they are to continue to help those in need across the galaxy.
