Beschreibung

The second Death Star has been destroyed, the emperor killed, and Darth Vader struck down. Devastating blows against the Empire and major victories for the Rebel Alliance. But the battle for freedom is far from over.
As the Empire reels from its critical defeats at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance - now a fledgling New Republic - presses its advantage by hunting down the enemy's scattered forces before they can regroup and retaliate. But above the remote planet Akiva, an ominous show of the enemy's strength is unfolding. Out on a lone reconnaissance mission, pilot Wedge Antilles watches imperial star destroyers gather like birds of prey circling for a kill, but he's taken captive before he can report back to the New Republic leaders.
Meanwhile, on the planet's surface, former rebel fighter Norra Wexley has returned to her native world - war weary, ready to reunite with her estranged son, and eager to build a new life in some distant place. But when Norra intercepts Wedge Antilles' urgent distress call, she realizes her time as a freedom fighter is not yet over. What she doesn't know is just how close the enemy is - or how decisive and dangerous her new mission will be.
Determined to preserve the Empire's power, the surviving imperial elite are converging on Akiva for a top-secret emergency summit - to consolidate their forces and rally for a counterstrike. But they haven't reckoned on Norra and her newfound allies - her technical genius son, a Zabrak bounty hunter, and a reprobate imperial defector - who are prepared to do whatever they must to end the Empire's oppressive reign once and for all.

Schwaches Star Wars

Der Versuch, die alten Filme mit den neuen über Romane zu verbinden ist löblich, aber was Aftermath hier liefert, wirkt einfach gezwungen.
Die übliche Mutter-sucht-verschollenen-Sohn inklusive Beziehungskonflikt ist weder besonders spannend noch Mitgefühl heischend. Die Wexleys sind nicht sympathisch. Das gilt auch für den Rest der Protagonisten. Sloane gibt einen Admiral Daala Abklatsch, die restlichen Moffs entspringen fast exakt der dritten New Jedi Order Geschichte. Einzig der Imperiale Loyalitätsoffizier wirkt spannend, enttäuscht dann aber als Disneys neues Vorschiff für angepasste Sexualität. Die restlichen Figuren verlieren sich in Belanglosigkeit.
Disney scheint fast verzweifelt die alten Charaktere auszulöschen wollen. Wedge, der beste Star Wars Kampfpilot verkommt hier zu einem ewig geschundenen getretenen Opfer.
Für Fans von Rogue Squadron: NIX!
Letztlich liefert Aftermath gezwungene langatmigen Füllkodt ohne wirklich interessante Protagonisten. Für mich ein Fehlkauf

Good production, but confused story

I liked the idea of the deminishing empire, but this scene hopping was way too much. Too many characters as well and at least three times main characters returned from certain death. In the core a solid Star Wars story, but everything around it was too much of everything. Less would have been more.
