Plot summary[edit | edit source]
Doctor Raygar, a scientist for Emperor Palpatine, has designs on ruling the Galactic Empire and travels to the Forest Moon of Endor to obtain the powerful Sunstar from the Ewoks' Bright Tree Village. He is attacked by the shaman Logray, who uses the Sunstar against him, but Raygar's Imperial Reconnaissance Droids soon overwhelm the village and the doctor swiftly steals the Sunstar, returning with it to Admiral Kazz's Star Destroyer in orbit.
PD-28, Wicket, Kneesaa, Latara and Teebo are the ones who take off and the ewoks are not yet experienced in leaving their home planet. Like losing gravity and a star destroyer. PD-28 and the ewoks infiltrated the star destroyer. But PD-28 is caught and sent to the recycling area for scrap forcing the ewoks to enter and disguise as Imperial Droids to rescue PD and stop Raygar.
Back in his lab, Raygar begins studying the Sunstar and realizes that by harnessing its power, he could remove Palpatine and install himself as the Galactic Emperor. But when creating a dangerous cannon with the Sunstar's powers, Raygar discovers that Wicket, Kneesaa, Latara and Teebo have come aboard Kazz's Star Destroyer with the help of a pilot droid named PD-28. Raygar plans to test his weapon on the captive Latara and Teebo, but is thwarted by Wicket. Inadvertently, Raygar fires upon the Emperor's approaching shuttle instead of Teebo and Latara. Palpatine survives, and Admiral Kazz subsequently arrests Raygar, charging him with high treason due to hitting the shuttle. The Emperor then oversees the doctor's punishment personally. With PD-28, the Ewoks return safely to the Forest Moon of Endor, where Wicket, Kneesaa, Latara and Teebo say good-bye to the pilot droid as he embarks on a search for his old master.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
When Latara and Teebo infiltrated Dr. Raygar's lab, they claimed to be "Buckethead droids" before Dr. Raygar says, "I no longer have any need for droids, especially when they're only... Ewoks in disguise!". This is the earliest on-screen use of a term that would become a common slang term for stormtroopers in Star Wars Canon.
