Word reaches the Rebellion that there’s a dissident faction among students at an Imperial flight school, wishing to defect. Since she has prior experience as an Imperial pilot trainee, Sabine is enrolled at the school with a new identity and a cover story, and meets three pilots who want to escape the Empire and join the Rebellion. Sabine engineers an escape plan, but the Empire, aware that there are traitors in their midst and aware that a Rebel agent is among their trainees, has already planned to stop them. Ezra’s impatience to get Sabine and her trio of defectors to safety is as much of a danger to the operation as the Empire.
