The aging C-3 Passenger Liner Alderaan's Darling has just exited hyperspace on the outskirts of the Manda System. The star Manda Prime is a bright spot in the far distance as the crew pauses to verify navigational bearings.
The characters of "In the Middle" are, each for their own reasons, on board Alderaan's Darling. Perhaps they are looking for a job in the Baobab Merchant Fleet, simply seeing the sights of the galaxy, or looking for adventure or employment in one of the more advanced and wealthy systems of the Empire, to each his own.
This is a Star Wars game using the "D6" version of the Star Wars RPG by West End Games.
The game is set during the "Rise of the Empire" era, approximately 3 years after the execution of Order 66.
