- "Scoundrels such as yourself wouldn't venture to the wastelands were it not for profit"
"You're as sharp as ever, Batalla"
- ―Lando Calrissian
At the Wastelands Of Kullgroon, Lando Calrissian was chained up to a wall, in front of him was a crowd of natives from the wasteland shouting at him. The leader of group, Batalla confronted Lando about their past together and how he swindled people at the Calladus festival including the Zakku rain cartel. Batalla questioned why Lando was there to which Lando told them sarcastically that he was on vacation. They continued to interrogate Lando and telling him that the Zakku rain cartel will pay handsomely for him.
At the Imperial outpost of Kullgroon, L3-37 was cutting the power to the station when a stormtrooper stopped her and asked her what she was doing. She told him that she was starting a resistance as the lights went out and she escaped. Also at the outpost Kristiss was shoved into line with other prisoners by a stormtrooper, there she met her father they smiled and held hands. Back at the wasteland, Lando was taken out of his chains by two aliens. Lando tried to talk his way into escaping but it did not work as he was thrown into another prison cell.
At the Imperial outpost Kristiss was telling the recent events to her father, Rythus. Rythus informed her that the guard transfer will be happening soon so they have to move quickly. Kristiss told him that they just need Lando to come through on his part.
- "What? I need to get out of here! Track my coordinates get back to the Falcon and get me out of here"
- ―Lando Calrissian
While sitting in prisoner cell, a protocol droid came by to deliver food for Lando. Lando pretended to be in pain which caused the droid to enter the cell to check on him, but Lando quickly dismembered the droid and sprinted out of his cell. He contacted L3 to get him out there but the droid could not in order to avoid the Empire being alerted of their presence. But as Lando was running through the hallways he was stopped by Batalla and their thugs. Lando tried to reason that he was just looking for a good meal to which Batalla told him that they were preparing one for Crimson Dawn finest.
During a break from working Kristiss and her father met with the other Petrusian workers. She and her father tried to convince the others that now was the time to rise up and fight. But many of the workers refused telling them that it was too much to risk. This angered Kristiss who felt like she came all this way for nothing.
The escaping the arena
- "Let's get out of here! I've had my fill of the wastelands and it's funky little trolls!"
- ―Lando Calrissian
Lando was thrown into an arena to fight against four members of the Zakku rain cartel who he swindled in an earlier event in front of a large crowd. The members charged at Lando who was armed only with a sword. Lando managed to take two down as the crowd cheered on. Suddenly shoots from above started to fly through the arena as Millennium Falcon piloted by L3 came to Lando's rescue. She fired down on the crowd giving Lando time to escape.
While escaping a large creature jumped out of the surface of the planet trying to grab the ship but barely missing. Once they got by, Lando contacted Kristiss if she was ready, Kristiss replied she was kinda ready but as Lando was talking back to her, L3 interrupted pointing out incoming TIE fighters.
