Plot summary[]

Part III
It is a time for cunning and guile. LANDO
CALRISSIAN, along with his team of longtime
friend LOBOT, alien clone warriors Aleskin and
Pavol, and antiquity specialist Sava Korin Pers,
was tasked with stealing an Imperial luxury
yacht in order to pay off a past debt.
Unbeknownst to Lando, the ship belongs to

No challenge too great for Lando, the crew
deftly escaped the pursuit of Imperial Star
Destroyers only to find out too late that the
yacht was protected by deadly Imperial
Guards. Before the team could react, Lobot
was greeted with the full force of an Imperial
Guard's staff.

Now this crew of thieves must do what they can
to save their friend, escape with the yacht, and
survive the pursuit of a dangerous new foe....

Suffering shock from being impaled, Lobot starts to mumble as his implants take over his mind. While Lando Calrissian and the Ugnaught Korin Pers take the wounded Lando to the medical bay, the twins Aleksin and Pavol engage in a melee fight with the two Emperor's Royal Guards guarding the Imperialis's central chamber. At Imperial Facility 729-D in the Inner Rim, the bounty hunter Chanath Cha boards the modified Star Courier Scimitar. Chanath is given a tour of the ship by the droid O-66. At gunpoint, Chanath forces 0-66 to provide her with information about the ship's systems.

While Lobot recuperates inside a bacta tank, Korin tells Lando that they had encountered the Emperor's Royal Guards, his elite bodyguards. Based on the presence of the two guards and the opulent treasures aboard, Korin deduces that they had stolen the Emperor's luxury yacht. She tells him that he killed them all but Calrissian doesn't want to talk about it. While the twins fight, Chanath departs aboard the Scimitar with the head of O-66. Despite being decapitated, O-66 continues to chat with Chanath and reassures her that the Scimitar is able to follow a ship's trail through hyperspace, something considered impossible. After homing in on the signature of the Imperialis, Chanath takes the Scimitar into hyperspace.

Before heading back to the central chamber, Lando and Korin steal some blasters from the ship's armor. Fortunately for them, they find that the twins have defeated both Imperial guards. Korin removes the helmets from the guards and discovers that they have been corrupted by the dark side. After entering the vault, they find that the chamber was holding a Sith helmet. Korin explains that the Jedi and Sith were rivals. Lando thinks that the Sith helmet will be worth a lot on the black market and fancies that it will be compensation for Korin's left eye. He asks if they are all set for life.
