Eila, like more and more unfortunate souls throughout the galaxy, knows the wrath of the First Order and Kylo Ren firsthand. Having survived their raid of her village on Tehar, she and her brother Kel snuck aboard a cargo ship, leaving the smoldering ashes of their homeworld behind. Now, the siblings hide out on the Colossus...until a bounty on their heads attracts the attention of Kazuda Xiono and the First Order.
Confident and skilled in the cockpit of a New Republic X-wing fighter, Kaz's new assignment as a spy for the Resistance leaves him feeling out of his element. Now living on the independent fueling station known as the Colossus, Kaz is doing his best to fit in as a mechanic so he can carry out his mission.
Located on the Outer Rim water planet of Castilon, the Colossus is a dangerous place that tends to attract well-meaning outcasts and more unsavory denizens of far-flung planets alike. Protected by some of the best pilots around, the Aces, elite stars of entertaining and dangerous sky races, the platform is soon infiltrated by the First Order, architects of a larger conflict brewing in the galaxy. But a small band of Resistance sympathizers led by secret spy Kazuda Xiono discover that the platform isn't what it seems.
