In the Mirrin sector, the New Republic Defense Fleet squadron, Rapier Squadron was in the midst of a battle with pirates. Rapier Leader, Poe Dameron was taking out many pirate starfighters, when he was struck with an ion pulse. His T-85 X-wing was disabled alongside his droid, BB-8 as he went hurling towards the pirate frigate. The frigate then blasted off into hyperspace.
The pirates dragged Dameron out of his X-wing starfighter and threw out BB-8. Dameron was pulled away from his droid but BB-8 sent him a signal with his welding torch that he had a plan to break Dameron out. Once the pirates left, BB-8 got up and rolled out of the hangar.
Meanwhile, a pirate began his interrogation of the New Republic pilot. The pirate wanted to know how Dameron and the New Republic knew where to find them. In order to stall, Dameron instead started talking about his childhood. Nearby, BB-8 snuck by the pirates and gained access a control panel, he then used it to send the coordinates of their location to the other members of Rapier Squadron.
Elsewhere, Iolo Arana and the rest of Rapier Squadron were search for Dameron but to no avail. But then they received the coordinates to from BB-8. The squadron formed up and blasted off to Dameron's location.
Back on the pirate frigate, Dameron was continuing with his story when the pirate had enough of it and ordered that Dameron's ship be scraped and he be ejected into space. But then the alarms bellowed throughout the frigate and Dameron realized that the squadron had arrived to his assistance. Everyone started to freak out and in the moment Dameron, took the blaster pistols of one of the pirates and took them all hostage.
Shortly after, Dameron thanked his fellow pilots for their assistance in his rescue. He then knelt down to BB-8 and thanked him for coming up with the plan to save him.

Notes and references
- According to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, Poe Dameron met BB-8 in 4 BSI and Poe joined the Resistance in 3 BSI, which corresponds to 30 ABY and 31 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Because in "Kidnapped!" Poe already knows BB-8, but he hasn't joined the Resistance yet, it must take place between these two years.
