Iron Squadron

Star Wars: RebelsThe Ghost is sent to help evacuate a Rebel cell from the planet Mykapo, but a freighter identifying itself as “Iron Squadron” is already putting up a fight against the Empire, even though it’s readily apparent that the freighter has no hyperdrive of its own and can’t escape. The leader of “Iron Squadron” – all of whom are teenagers – is Mart Mattin, nephew of Commander Sato of the Rebel fleet. Sabine and Ezra offer to stay and help Mart and his friends repair their ship, unaware that Grand Admiral Thrawn is using Mart as the bait in a trap to lure the Rebel’s leadership out into the open.
