Publisher summary[]

An all-new adventure starring Lando Calrissian and L3-37 onboard the Millennium Falcon. When a smuggling scheme goes wrong, Lando faces an opportunity to do what's right–or do what's best for Lando. If he's lucky, he can do both!

Plot summary[]

Bazine Netal is determined to find out everything about the Millennium Falcon. She found someone who turned out to be former Princess Rinetta Gan of Hynestia. Rinetta told her about her ride on the ship.

After getting arrested for smuggling, Lando Calrissian had only one option to get off Hynestia alive. Following Queen Forsythia Jin's orders, he and his first mate L3-37 had to deliver an orb to the Empire making up for a gherlian fur delivery they caused to fail.

Princess Rinetta knew about the real purpose of the artifact from her teacher Zel, a Lynna. The Solstice Globe was home to Livno III in Wild Space. It was supposed to function as an energy source and make up for the lack of sunlight on the planet. Without it, Livno III would fall to ruin (a process that had already started years earlier). Princess Rinetta tried to force Lando and L3 to comply with her new orders (and against the queen's orders) after sneaking onto the Millennium Falcon as a stowaway.

Her plan initially failed as Lando took her blaster and flew to Neral's moon to settle a debt with Ne'eda Frip. The exchange going wrong he escaped just to be captured by Queen Forsythia again. Princess Rinetta freed Lando, Zel, and L3 once again and made Lando promise to help her returning the Solstice Globe to Livno III.

Being able to escape from Hynestia, the four had to defeat Ne'eda's Stalwarts before making the jump to hyperspace, reaching Livno III two days later and returning the artifact. Indeed, the Solstice Globe was the last of three Globes missing, and sunlight returned to Livno III.

Returning the princess back to Hynestia, Lando and L3 were pardoned by the queen and went off to new adventures.

Years later, the Empire took over control over Hynestia. The queen went into exile and princess Rinetta led all other Hynestians to safety on Livno III.

  3. Lando's Luck takes place after the formation of the Galactic Empire but before the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the formation of the Empire to 19 BBY and Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide places the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story nine years after that. Therefore, Lando's Luck takes place between 19 BBY and 10 BBY.
