A young Luke Skywalker and Biggs Darklighter, eager to get off Tatooine for no matter how short a time, have purchased tickets to go to one of the planet's moons on a GR-75 transport. Taking off from Mos Eisley, they are at first ecstatic, but then a near-disaster occurs as the engines malfunction, and the transport starts plummeting back to the surface.
