Palpatine calls a meeting of his bravest, wisest, and most influential military officers in order to introduce them to his new right-hand man, Darth Vader!

The new Emperor lays out his plans for his Empire, and those who have other ideas are dealt a swift lesson by Vader’s blade. But one Captain wants nothing to do with the new government, and plans his defection. But what do you do when the Dark Lord of the Sith is determined to stop you?

This issue marks Vader’s first appearance in Star Wars continuity since his “introduction” in Revenge of the Sith! And, long-time readers of Republic will see a plot come full circle in a most unexpected manner!

Watch the fall of the Republic through the eyes of Sagoro Autem-Senate Guard, mercenary, prisoner, Clone Wars hero, and Imperial target-in a story that spans from before the Clone Wars to the first mission of Darth Vader!

Young Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker-his even younger Padawan-protect a senator from assassination attempts. Joining the Jedi in their mission is Autem, loyal Senate Guard. Yet, as Obi-Wan and Anakin fend off a league of master assassins, Autem discovers a link between the killers that will change his own life forever-a secret he will not be able to face until the Clone Wars have come and gone, and he finds himself on the run from the new Emperor’s enforcer, Darth Vader!
