By June 1942, the Japanese Navy has swept across the Pacific. In an effort to change the course of the war, a United States carrier group is positioned off the coast of Midway, tasked with springing a trap on the enemy. During this pivotal battle, the two-man crew of a U.S. Navy dive bomber is forced to ditch in the sea. Set adrift, the men look towards their comrades for rescue; namely, the ragtag crew of a PBY Catalina, who are sent to search for survivors. Amid the vast openness of the Pacific, with days passing and the chance of rescue fading, the men are forced to face their own mortality.
“Scout: A Star Wars Story” tells the tale of Dax Orrell, a soldier on The Forest Moon of Endor, during Return of the Jedi. Dax wakes up in a daze, unaware of where he is or where his battalion has gone. He radios for assistance but is greeted by ghastly silence, so, he decides to make his way toward the sounds of distant blaster fire. Along this path Dax encounters his nemisis, an Imperial Biker Scout, dead-set on stopping Dax in his tracks.
