However, the plans were copied into the [[Memory core|memory banks]] of the [[Astromech droid/Legends|astromech droid]] [[R2-D2/Legends|R2-D2]] who, accompanied by his [[Counterpart/Legends|counterpart]], the [[Protocol droid/Legends|protocol droid]] [[C-3PO/Legends|C-3PO]], left the [[Corvette/Legends|corvette]] in an [[Escape pod/Legends|escape pod]] which crash landed on Tatooine. Praji reported to Vader that an escape pod had been jettisoned from the ship during the battle, but that no lifeforms had been detected aboard the pod. Vader ordered Praji to personally search for the plans on the surface of Tatooine, but he took the orders lightly and delegated the mission to his subordinates. He ordered [[Captain/Legends|Captain]] [[Kosh/Legends|Kosh's]] local [[Garrison/Legends|garrison]], Captain [[Mod Terrik|Terrik's]] [[Desert Sands]], and Vader's [[501st Legion/Legends|501st Legion]] to search for the escape pod. The [[Spaceport/Legends|spaceports]] on the planet were quarantined, but with the help of [[Corellian/Legends|Corellian]] [[Smuggler/Legends|smuggler]] [[Han Solo/Legends|Han Solo]], [[Moisture farmer/Legends|moisture farmer]] [[Luke Skywalker/Legends|Luke Skywalker]] and [[Jedi Master/Legends|Jedi Master]] [[Obi-Wan Kenobi/Legends|Obi-Wan Kenobi]], the two [[Droid/Legends|droids]] evaded the [[Blockade/Legends|blockades]] and escaped into [[Hyperspace/Legends|hyperspace]] aboard Solo's [[Millennium Falcon/Legends|freighter]], heading to [[Alderaan/Legends|Alderaan]], the [[Homeworld/Legends|homeworld]] of Senator Organa. After the [[Battle of Endor/Legends|Battle of Endor]] [[4 ABY/Legends|four years later]], Praji joined the forces of several Imperial [[Warlord/Legends|warlords]], and eventually served under the [[Cloning/Legends|resurrected]] [[Galactic Emperor/Legends|Galactic Emperor]], His [[Transfer essence|Immortal]] Majesty [[Palpatine/Legends|Palpatine]]. With his actions in the [[Battle of Kaikielius (Galactic Civil War)|battle]] of [[Kaikielius/Legends|Kaikielius]], Praji earned the [[Governor/Legends|governorship]] of the planet.
