Plot summary[]

Book IV, Part II
It is a time of uncertainty in the galaxy. Standing
against the oppression of the First Order is General
Organa's Resistance, including Poe Dameron and his team of
pilots – Black Squadron.

Poe Dameron and his team have recently emerged from a
bittersweet victory. Through a combination of luck and
skill, they defeated the ruthless crime lord Terex – but
lost one of their own, L'ulo. Terex was taken prisoner by
his former employers, the evil First Order, who punished
his defiance by placing a device in his brain to render
him servile.

Back at the hidden Resistance base, Black Squadron
must cut their mourning short as they prepare to take
another run at the First Order....[2]

On D'Qar, General Leia Organa, Admiral Ushos O. Statura, Poe Dameron, and C-3PO discussed the Resistance's lack of supplies, especially fuel. The Resistance often purchased these from the galactic underworld, but most of their contacts had gone silent. Only one remained: Captain Perrili.

On the bulk freighter Romary, Captain Perrili went to the hangar to meet ships that she thought was the Resistance. However, stormtroopers came out and shot one of her crew members. Malarus and Terex emerged as well.

Organa made a deal for one more freighter of fuel, and assigned Black Squadron to retrieve it. However, she was only able to authorize one fighter's worth of fuel. Despite this, all of the squadron still went, the ships running on less fuel.

TIE fighters surrounded the Romary as Malarus interrogated Perrili.

As Black Squadron traveled through hyperspace, they agreed the mission would succeed no matter what to honor L'ampar. When they reached the Romary, they found no signs of life but were not surprised since the original plan was for Perrili to leave the freighter. Dameron and BB-8 traveled to the cockpit to fly the ship. However, before Dameron jumped into hyperspace, BB-8 stopped him.

The droid had discovered that the freighter was rigged to explode as soon as it stopped accelerating, which would have destroyed the Resistance base. Black Squadron was still unwilling to leave the freighter, as they had promised themselves this mission would succeed.

Their astromech droids get to work as the freighter entered a nebula. The shields became strained from deflecting dust. The freighter entered an asteroid field, and the asteroids were difficult for Dameron to dodge. Just before hitting one, the rest of Black Squadron shot it down with their fighters. Dameron worried about their fighters running out of fuel, but they assured him they were capable. BB-8 discovered that the First Order had drained the freighter's storage tanks, and they decided to take the fuel back.


In a list of Aurebesh text, Captain Perrili's name is misspelled as "Captain Parrili."

  3. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that Poe Dameron began leading Black Squadron on missions two years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. SWInsider.png "Resistance Revisited" – Star Wars Insider 190 establishes that the events of Star Wars Resistance Season One take place thirty years after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As the events of Star Wars: Poe Dameron occur before the events of Star Wars Resistance, this issue must occur between 32 ABY and 34 ABY.
