“Keep your distance, though Chewie, but don’t look like you’re trying to keep your distance. I don’t know, fly casual.” – Han Solo™
The empire is rebuilding the Death Star™, and with its fleet spread throughout the galaxy working to eradicate the rebels, it is unprotected. Admiral Ackbar™ explains to the assembled rebellion troops that while the weapons of the Death Star are not active, the Death Star does have a strong defense mechanism. It is protected by an energy shield generated from the forest moon of Endor™.
General Han Solo leads a small team of rebels including Chewbacca™, Princess Leia Organa™, Luke Skywalker™, and the Droids, C-3POTM and R2-D2™ aboard The Tydirium, a stolen Imperial shuttle disguised as a cargo ship. The mission is to use a secret Imperial code, land on the forest moon, and deactivate the shield generator protecting the Death Star. While the team waits to see if the code will work and allow them to land on the forest moon to start their secret mission, the Rebel Alliance fleet starts their journey towards Endor to defeat the Empire and blow up the Death Star. Thomas Kinkade Studios® is pleased to present Strike Team.
