Shattered Empire was one of the momentous stories released just prior to The Force Awakens as part of the Journey to the Force Awakens publishing program. It begins right in the middle of the battle of the second Death Star above the Forest Moon of Endor. The miniseries follows Shara Bey, A-Wing pilot for the Rebel Alliance, who will become the mother to none other than Poe Dameron. The series follows her to several significant battles after Endor, including Operation Cinder’s razing of Naboo, and incredibly, in assisting Luke Skywalker in retrieving a Force-sensitive tree. . .
Emperor Palpatine's twenty-year reign of terror came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire's Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before! For the first time in the new Star Wars canon, journey with us into the time after the end of Return of the Jedi!
