Set shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi, Imperial Governor Adelhard of the Anoat Sector refuses to release his grip, instead locking down the sector to prevent all incoming and outgoing space traffic to keep everyone within and allow him to maintain an iron rule. He refuses to accept the death of Darth Vader and Palpatine as the fall of the Empire, keeping Palpatine's death under wraps. As the Rebel Alliance only has a small presence in the sector, smugglers, assassins, crime lords, nobles and crime cartels form their own rebellion against Adelhard.[4][5][6]
