Despite being vastly outnumbered by First Order forces, Rey and her friends vow that they will fight to protect the Zixon — or what else does the Resistance stand for? Rey, Poe, Rose and BB-8 will have to face stormtroopers, deadly flying creatures, and even a Star Destroyer to keep Minfar safe and strike a blow against the First Order!
