"An Imperial scientist has gone rogue. He has valuable information and is being held at an Imperial facility on a backwater planet named Tatooine. Your mission is to capture him and find out what information he has." That was the Rebel briefing. The Rebels are commanded by the extremist Saw Gerrara. There is also a group of Bounty Hunters willing to capture the scientist and sell him to the highest bidder.
