Publisher's summaryEdit

Having finally met up with the rebels of Vorzyd 5, Luke is selected to meet with the secret government contact who can help the Rebel Alliance defeat the Empire. But as he follows the instructions on his way to meet the contact, he is closely monitored by Blackhole's personal cadre of stormtroopers! Meanwhile, Princess Leia has been kidnapped by the gang of freelies, who want nothing to do with the Rebel Alliance, or the Empire, for that matter!

Luke, Leia, and the droids have
come to Vorzyd 5, the "Gambler's
World," to meet fellow Rebels and
disrupt the Empire's main source of
income. But a sinister being named
Blackhole is dispatched by Darth Vader
to ensure that their plan fails, and that they
are quietly captured so as not to arouse
sympathy for the Rebellion. With the help of
the droids, Luke, Leia and Paxin escape from
Blachole's ship at the cost of the alien Falud's life.
Blackhole, eager to keep the Empire's involvement in
the affair secret, fails to give chase. Darth Vader,
however, has little patience for Blackhole's mistakes.
Meanwhile, Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio go shopping
for weapons to protect their master, little knowing that they
are being stalked...
