Based on the epic videogame from BioWare and LucasArts
The Sith Empire is in flux. The Emperor is missing, presumed dead, and an ambitious Sith lords attempt to seize the throne has ended fatally. Still, Darth Karrid, commander of the fearsome Imperial battle cruiser "Ascendant Spear, " continues her relentless efforts to achieve total Sith domination of the galaxy.
But Karrids ruthless determination is more than matched in the steely resolve of Theron Shan, whose unfinished business with the Empire could change the course of the war for good. Though the son of a Jedi master, Theron does not wield the Force--but like his renowned mother, the spirit of rebellion is in his blood. As a top covert agent for the Republic, he struck a crucial blow against the Empire by exposing and destroying a Sith superweapon arsenal--which makes him the ideal operative for a daring and dangerous mission to end "Ascendant Spear"s reign of terror.
Joined by hot-headed smuggler Teffith, with whom he has an inexplicable bond, and wise Jedi warrior Gnost-Dural, Darth Karrids former master, Theron must match wits and weapons with a battle-tested crew of the most cold-blooded dark side disciples. But time is brutally short. And if they dont seize their one chance to succeed, they will surely have countless opportunities to die.
