Now, several months later, the Rebels have established an outpost on the frozen wasteland of Hoth. But even on that icy, backwater planet, they cannot escape the evil Darth Vader's notice for long. Soon, Luke, Han, Princess Leia, and their faithful companions are forced to flee, scattering in all directions - with the Dark Lord's minions in fevered pursuit.
But escaping from the frozen waistland of Hoth is only just the beginning. With the full force of the Empire behind Darth Vader, it's all the rebel fugitives can do to survive. It's a battle of life and death ... and Vader's hoping for death.
