In a covert rebel stronghold, wounded and on the run, Valance finds a long-lost love. However, the galaxy’s deadliest bounty hunters are closing in, and they’ve brought an army of battle droids from the Clone War with them. Valance will face the fury of pirates in the Outer Rim as he makes a desperate attempt to survive… and put his previous rival Dengar on a collision course!
