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 I wonder what this guy's reaction was to the end of Return of the Jedi.

Rebel: Hey, did you hear? Luke, Leia and Solo and the others took down the second Death Star, and Vader and the Emperor are dead.

Eneb:...... shit.

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!)

Reminds me of that dumbass who acted like a total dick to Yuna in Final Fantasy X-2.

"What gives you the right to think you deserve any kind of respect! Just because you saved the world and defeated the evil god that had been killing countless people for a millennia and ushered in a new era of prosperity and peace. Ah! That was two years ago! What have you done for us since then???"

I'm sad the game didn't give me the option to set him on fire.

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.”)

Another thing, I notice that Eneb isn't question any of the male heroes. Not the unvetted farm boy that showed up out of the blue and has absolutely no training whatsoever, or the incompetent smuggler who initially wasn't even part of the death star raid and only hopped in at the last second.

No no, the one who gets her abilities questioned is the Princess who risked life and limb to steal the Death Star plans, whose quick thinking allowed the plans to escape being recaptured by Vader, and who resisted torture and SEEING HER OWN PLANET BLOWN UP IN FRONT OF HER* and still didn't sell out the rebels, and then pretty much took over the rescue operation because it was pretty fucking clear those two chuckle heads were dropping the ball in a huge way. No, she's the one who gets questioned.

*And I keep putting the planet thing in all caps because it needs to be emphasized. Grand Moff Tarkin didn't just threaten her by threatening to hurt her parents, or one of her fellow rebels, no no, he threatened her entire planet. A planet by the way, according to Wookiepedia, had a population of 2,000,000,000.

And even after she lied and gave him a bogus tip, fucker blew the planet up anyways, just to be an asshole. AND SHE STILL DIDN'T BREAK.

Honestly, I think Eneb may be a little jealous because Leia's clearly got more guts than any other rebel they got.

So certain portions of the Rebel Alliance are the new Marvel Universe citizens. Gotcha.

Now now, I'm sure some of them have the same mindset of General Lane outta the DCU as well...

When you consider the fact that some of the oldest factions in the Rebel Alliance used to to be part of the Separatist military it's not that surprising.

Oh, yeah. As I recall, that was said by a Crusader. You know, the guys who got their asses thoroughly handed to them in FFX.

I wanted the option to rub that in. "Remember how you and an entire army of your buddies couldn't make a scratch in Sin? Remember how I and my Guardians killed the hell out of Sin? How do you imagine things will end, if you go up against me?"

Eneb's whining reminds me a bit of Mara Jade in the Thrawn trilogy. In particular, where Mara is doing her usual whining about "you don't understand what it's like to have your life taken from you" and Leia quietly responds "You're wrong. I understand that very well."

Then Mara remembers that Leia watched her entire planet get blown up in front of her, with most everyone she knew killed in one fell swoop. Mara feels like an idiot for one second, then goes right back into whining.

Eneb: "I have to discredit and kill her so people will think I'm tough, because no way in a sarlacc's cloaca can I stack up next to that."

I really hope Aphra survives the Vader ongoing. She probably won't. But of ever since this new version of EU, of the new characters introduced not shown in the movie? Her and Kallus have been my favorite ones.
