Plot summary[]

Book IV, Part III
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.

Black Squadron has recently emerged from a bittersweet
victory – they defeated the ruthless crime lord Terex, but
at the cost of one of their own, L'ulo. Terex was taken
prisoner by his former employers, the evil First Order,
who placed a device in his brain to render him servile.

As the First Order uses Terex to target General Organa's
suppliers, Black Squadron is forced to cut their mourning
short in order to retrieve a fuel shipment. But First
Order has laid a trap! Now, hurtling through hyperspace on
a massive bomb, Poe and his team race to diffuse it and
retrieve the stolen shipment....[2]

On the Bulk freighter Romary, in the Mid Rim, Poe Dameron and Black squadron try to navigate the tanker through the asteroid field, trying not to slow down for the tanker will blow up if it does. When the shields fail, Karé Kun manages to shoot two astroids before they hit the freighter. They make it to the end of the field just as Black Squadron's X-wing starfighters run out of fuel. BB-8 tells Poe that he has been tracking the First Order, as there was some traces of Rhydonium in the fuel that they stole and that they haven't jumped to hyperspace yet. Jessika Pava deduces that since they haven't jumped into hyperspace, the must have a hyperspace ring nearby.

On the Enshado, the Lieutenant reports to Commander Malarus that the tanker would dock with the hyperspace ring soon. Malarus compliments Terex for being useful and more obedient due to the cybernetic implants in his head. A First Order Major suddenly reports that the Romary is coming up behind them. Poe contacts the First Order cruiser and demands that they surrender the fuel. Malarus orders to launch TIE/fo space superiority fighters and shoot the tanker before it gets to close to the Enshado.

Black squadron is able refuel their X-wings thanks to siphoning fuel from the Romary while having Pava's astromech droid, Kaythree pilot the light freighter.

  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.
