Death Troopers is a Star Wars novel written by Joe Schreiber. The novel is the first [1] horror story based in the Star Wars Universe since the Galaxy of Fear series, released in the late 90s. Released on October 13, 2009, Death Troopers is set just before the events shown in A New Hope. It will be heavily featured in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies with SOE confirming a full page of information and advertisements of the game in the book.



When the Imperial prison barge Purge- temporary home to five hundred of the galaxy's most ruthless killers, rebels, scoundrels and thieves-breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope appears to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party from the Purge is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back-bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours nearly all aboard the Purge die in ways too hideous to imagine. And death is only the beginning. The Purge's half-dozen survivors-two teenage brothers, a sadistic captain of the guards, a couple of rogue smugglers and the chief medical officer, the lone woman on board-will do whatever it takes to stay alive. But nothing can prepare them for what lies waiting aboard the Star Destroyer amid its vast creaking emptiness that isn't really empty at all. For the dead are rising: soulless, unstoppable and unspeakably hungry.
