The mission to Pasaana was a mission undertaken by the Resistance during their war with the First Order. The mission resulted in a skirmish between First Order troops and Poe Dameron, Rey, Lando Calrissian, Finn, BB-8 and C-3PO on the desert planet Pasaana.
After hearing Palpatine's broadcast, Rey along with Finn, Poe, Chewbacca, BB-8 and C-3PO set out to find the Sith Wayfinders, ancient tools helping to locate Exegol. The crew set out to Pasaana, the last known location where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker was when he failed to find it.
Arriving at the desert planet of Pasaana, the crew were introduced to the Aki-Aki species and the Festival of Ancestors which occur every 42 years. Trying to stay hidden so that no First Order patrol officer would see her, Rey met a young Aki-Aki who gave her a necklace and asked her name to which Rey replied her name was Rey. When the youngling asked her last name she replied she didn't have one. Just then she had another Force bond with Kylo Ren. During the bond, Ren told Rey that Palpatine wanted her dead, however he had other plans. Rey told him how he still could not get over what he did to his father. Ren said he will find another way to turn her over to him, then he snatched her necklace the young Aki-Aki gave her earlier. Running over to Poe and Finn, Rey told them it was time to move as Ren was coming for them. Along the way they were confronted by First Order stormtrooper FN-2802 who tried to alert the other stormtrooper in that area but was killed by a masked smuggler. Telling them to follow him, he led them into a big sandcrawler where Finn asked how'd he found us. The masked figure then revealed himself to be Lando Calrissian much to the enjoyment of Chewie. Lando told them that Leia sent him a message. However they were interrupted by the First Order. Leaving Rey told Lando that Leia Organa needed pilots, however Lando told her that his flying days were over. Lando asks Rey to give Leia his love but Rey advises Lando to give it to her himself.
Heading over to some skimmers, Poe was able to hotwire them and fled from the Festival. They were spotted by First Order Jet troopers who followed them in pursuit. Trying to get them of their tail, Rey, Chewbacca, Finn, and Poe tried to out maneuver them to no avail. They were forced to shoot at them while they were split up. They were however able to defeat the jet troopers, however they fell into quicksand. While they were sinking, Finn tried to tell Rey something however they had sunk in the quicksand before he was able to. Finding themselves in a hidden cave Rey asked Finn what he was going to tell her, but Finn told her he didn't want to say it in front of Poe much to his dismay. Later on they discovered the remains of Sith assassin Ochi and his blade. Seeing that it had Sith language, they tried to see if C-3PO could translate, but he couldn't because of programming block. Before anything could happen they were attacked by a vexis. Finn and Poe got their blasters out to shoot the beast, but Rey was able to Force heal the wounded beast which then left, creating a hole for them to escape. Meanwhile, the Knights of Ren arrived on the surface of the planet, searching for Rey and her allies. Leaving the cave they went to Bestoon Legacy which Rey knew from an unknown time. However as she was at the ship, she sensed Kylo Ren in pursuit. She told Finn that she would be right back. Going out in the desert, she drew her lightsaber and was able to cut of the wing of his TIE fighter, causing it to crash. Meanwhile Finn told Chewbacca to get Rey, however unknown to him he was being spotted by Knights of Ren Ap'lek and Kuruk who captured him and gave him to the First Order. Realizing that Chewie has been captured, Finn told Rey that they got Chewbacca. Seeing a First Order transport leaving, Rey used the force to stop it, while Ren who survived the crash used the force on the ship as well. Losing the tug of war, Rey out of anger used Force lightning which destroyed the transport. Looking in horror as she thought she killed her friend, Rey had no other choice but to flee from the oncoming TIE Fighters.
Leaving on the Bestoon Legacy, Rey, Finn, and Poe learned that C-3PO had the language inscribed in his memory. Decided not to let Chewie's death be in vain, they decided to go to Kijimi, where Poe knew an old ally to get the language out of C-3PO. Meanwhile the First Order captured the Millennium Falcon and the Sith dagger and transported it to the Steadfast, where General Hux informed Allegiant General Enric Pryde that they captured a valuable prisoner, Chewbacca, boasting that the Wookie used to fly with Han Solo, angering Chewbacca at the mention of his late best friend's name.
