A Rebel solider decides "spoiled and entitled" Princess Leia has to prove herself to be "ready" to take on the Empire. By demanding she execute a prisoner.



Darth Vader's secret ally, droid expert Dr. Aphra, has been captured and transferred to Sunspot Prison, where the Rebel Alliance keeps its prisoners.

While the princess is securing Dr. Aphra at Sunspot Prison, a mysterious invader has seized control of the facility and begins eliminating prisoners. Cornered, Leia and Sana Starro (who might be Han Solo's wife, they ever clear that up?) join forces with the doctor to release the inmates and spare them from an untimely death.

Princess Leia is offered an ultimatum. Kill Dr. Aphra or Han and Luke (both unconscious) will be killed. Sana is fine with that. And who is offering the ultimatum?

Some of what Eneb is saying reminds me of a line from "Legacy of the Force: Inferno." Alema Rar curses out the One Sith Empire:

"Is that how this works? You train your Emperors and send them out into the galaxy on their own? No wonder all it took to bring Palpatine down was a farm boy and a self-absorbed princess!"

Aphra is freed by Leia and Sana via escape pod. It is hinted by Leia but not confirmed that Aphra and Sana were once "involved."

It is interesting that some rebels think Leia isn't "hard" enough to take on the Empire. Or at least Eneb thinks this, and he seems to be crazy.

So the person who didn't break under a full on interrogation droid and Darth Vader's personal attention is somehow not hard enough to take on the Empire?

Ehn, it's typical "Those who fight monsters" business. There'll always be that segment that thinks you have to be even more ruthless and bloodthirsty than the enemy to "win."

Basically it's a bit of commentary on some of Donald Trump's statements, I'd say (Kill the terrorists families! Double down on torture!)

Well lets see,

*Didn't break under TORCHAAA!

*When rescuers came she basically took over the rescue team and led them to victory.

*Was able to keep her composure after HER ENTIRE FUCKING PLANET HAD BEEN BLOWN UP. (Hell, when they are fleeing the Death star, she is comforting Luke over the loss of Obi Wan. Seriously how fucked up is that? She loses her entire planet, literally everything and everyone she ever knew, and she has to comfort the guy who lost an old man he couldn't have known more than a few days).

*This is skipping ahead a bit, but infiltrating the lair of a powerful crime lord to save her boyfriend.

*And when that went south and she gets taken hostage and basically made a sex slave by said crime lord, CHOKING HIS FAT ASS THE FUCK OUT WITH HER OWN CHAIN.

Yeah no, fuck you Eneb. Princess Leia is the hardest princess there ever was.

... You know, I recently encountered a tumblr meme that replaced all the tired old Chuck Norris jokes with Leia Organa ones. And frankly, they fit.

Leia Organa does not fight battles. She accepts surrenders. Sometimes.


“General Veers waited a full thirty minutes before entering Hoth base, just to be sure Leia Organa was gone.”

“Leia Organa wasn’t rescued on the Death Star. She rescued herself, and then she stuck around to rescue Han and Luke too.”

(Han and Luke look at each other. Han looks vaguely embarrassed, but Luke just shrugs. “Yeah,” he says. “Actually, that one’s completely true.”)
