Summary and additional information below
It is a period of civil war. The heroic freedom fighters of the Rebel Alliance have won one of their most important victories thus far with the destruction of the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Star. But the rebellion has no time to savor it’s victory. The evil Galactic Empire has recognize the threat the rebels pose, and is now searching the galaxy for any information that will lead to the final destruction of the freedom fighters.
The Shrikes, an elite group of rebels responsible for advanced recon is in trouble. The only surviving member Lieutenant Ematt is in hiding on the planet Cyrkon. The Empire’s agent Commander Beck is hot on his trail. The only ship that can get their in time is the Millennium Falcon. Leia Organa convinces Han Solo and Chewbacca to take the mission.
Upon his arrival on Cyrkon Han and Chewy are set upon by bounty hunters sent by Jabba the Hutt. The group, lead by a droid called Captivator, has the two smugglers pinned down when Commander Beck and her stormtroopers show up. Han’s guile saves the day, he points at the bounty hunters and yells “REBELS!!” The Imperials take up the fight with the bounty hunters and in the chaos Han and Chewy slip away.
They meet up with Captain Delia of the Miss Fortune. She is an old friend of Han’s and a rebel contact. She gives them the location of Ematt and they proceed to collect him. Once they meet with him at his hotel they head back to the Falcon. As soon as they exit the building they are attacked by the bounty hunters again. They had forced Hans contact to reveal where he was going. While the bounty hunters slowed him down Beck and her troops set a trap for Han and Chewy at the Falcon.
Upon reaching the Falcon Han, Chewy and Ematt find themselves surrounded by stormtroopers. Han has a card up his sleeve though, he has called in Delia to give them some close air support. This surprises the imperials and our hero’s are able to make it aboard the Falcon. Beck calls in Tie fighter support from the Star Destroyer Vehement. The Millennium Falcon and the Miss Fortune are able to fight past the Fighters and make it to hyperspace and safety.
