The Star Empress
Wealth, power, or duty?
In the dark reaches of the Outer Rim, a daring captain and her entire squadron have deserted the Empire and gone rogue. The former captain now fashions herself a pirate queen and launches devastating raids on unsuspecting targets across the Territories. From a base hidden deep within a cloudy nebula, this “Star Empress” draws ever more pirates and brigands to her cause.
Fearing this growing threat but wary of bringing the affair to public attention, Imperial Intelligence has decided to use a group of outlaws as assassins. The group is to infiltrate the Star Empress’s pirate band, work their way into her inner circle, and, when the time is right, kill her. Will the outlaws carry out their duty to their Emperor, or will riches and power sway their loyalty to a new ruler?
