With the help of Boba Fett, Bo-Katan, Cara Dune, and Fennec Shand – and with a little bit of information gleaned from the Imperial scientist captured en route to continue his experiments on Grogu – the Mandalorian plans a two-pronged attack on Moff Gideon’s cruiser. His objective is to rescue Grogu, while Bo-Katan wants to recapture the Darksaber and regain control of Mandalore. Standing in their way is an entire platoon of Darktroopers – droid stormtroopers impervious to the weaknesses of either Imperial recruits or clones – and taking out even one of them is almost more than the Mandalorian can handle on his own. Bringing Moff Gideon to heel is somewhat easier, but once the entire team is trapped on the cruiser’s bridge with Gideon and Grogu, with Darktroopers crowding on the other side of the blast door, it seems a new hope is needed.
