The Empire has suffered a fatal blow at the hands of Luke Skywalker and his allies. With the destruction of the Death Star II and the deaths of both Darth Vader and the Emperor, the remaining Imperial forces gather under Grand Admiral Thrawn in the hopes of restoring the galaxy conquering machine to its former glory.
A man of reason and science, Thrawn never put much stock in the beliefs of his Emperor or his lapdog, but seeing how quickly the Empire fell at the hands of the rebel alliance with "the Force" on their side, his interest is piqued.
While fighting ever more difficult skirmishes with the Rebel Alliance, Thrawn sends spies to all reaches of the galaxy searching for those attuned to the Force. He hopes to create a replacement for Darth Vader that will win him unquestioned control of the Empire and the galaxy.
As agents of the New Republic, forming from the ranks of the Rebel Alliance, your mission is to find these force-sensitives before Thrawn, recruiting those who would join and eliminating those who pose a threat. Perhaps along the way, you will find your connection to the force as well.
