Star Wars: Death Troopers begins with an Imperial prison barge, the Purge, broken down in an uninhabited part of space, full of killers, rebels, scoundrels and thieves. The barge's crew is hopeful when it discovers a drifting Imperial Star Destroyer nearby, and sends a boarding party to the abandoned ship to scrounge for parts. But the members of the boarding party return infected with a horrific disease. And that disease is only the beginning: those afflicted die, but then rise again.
