Three and a half, mostly on the weight of Zahn and Stackpole's contributions.

A pleasant, if spotty, collection of stories--mostly occurring between Episodes Five and Six. The opening story is notably from after Episode Six. Corran Horn's appearances are inverted within this sequence.

It's always a pleasure to make the acquaintance of Mara Jade, Admiral Thran and Corran Horn, with the later two working together in a short Timothy Zahn-Micheal Stackpole novel.

Then there was Schweighofer's pointless twenty-six page introduction, which added nothing but page count. That, of course, may have been it's intended function.

Cover Art quibble: if the left-handed Boba Fett-look-alike is not to be confused for Boba, why position Slave One unmistakably in the picture? Since this collection was supposed to be about the Empire, why not feature a star destroyer or some stormtroopers?
