Star Wars: RebelsAfter Phoenix Squadron is reduced to half strength in a high-risk raid to move cargo to other ships in the Rebel fleet, Commander Sato tasks the Ghost crew with a challenging assignment: find a base of operations which can provide Phoenix Squadron with shelter. One promising target is a massive Imperial carrier ship which holds station over Hera’s home planet of Ryloth. Hera contacts her father, Clone War hero Cham Syndulla, and tries to mend fences with him. Tiring of Imperial control over Ryloth, Cham wants to destroy the ever-present carrier rather than commandeering it… and he’s willing to betray his own daughter to make sure his plan is the one that’s carried out.
