X-Wing Rogue Squadron #9
Battleground: Tatooine (Part 1 of 4)

Place in timeline - 4+ years after A New Hope

Published: June 1996
Story: Michael A. Stackpole
Script: Jan Strnad
Pencils: John Nadeau

Colorist: Perry McNamee
Letterer: Vickie Williams
Cover Artist: Mark Harrison


The crime and death caused by Jabba the Hutt is nothing compared to the chaos created in the wake of his demise! Jabba's legacy is a cache of stolen Imperial hardware and weapons, hidden somewhere on the desert world of Tatooine. Whoever finds the treasure will have enough firepower to rule the planet -- perhaps even the sector! And that means Rogue Squadron must find it first, or else find it aimed at their heads!

Jabba the Hutt is dead, and in the ensuing scramble for power, a secret Imperial weapons cache could be the key to victory. But only one being alive knows the location of the hidden weapons cache -- Firith Olan. While that makes Firith a very powerful being, it also makes him a prime target. In a desperate race to uncover the missing weapons, as the criminals converge to fill the role of the dead Hutt, Wedge and Rogue Squadron find themselves smack in the middle of Battleground: Tatooine!
