Plot summary[]

Book III, Part I
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 ace pilots—Black Squadron.

After undertaking a mission to find the explorer
Lor San Tekka, a new enemy has emerged: Terex, an
officer of the First Order Security Bureau. Though
Poe's crew of pilots has managed to survive multiple
encounters, Terex has vowed to destroy them.

Meanwhile, shadows gather around Poe, as he has
become increasingly certain that a member of Black
Squadron is feeding information to the First Order
about the Resistance and its allies, and darkness
continues to spread across the galaxy....

While practicing hand-to-hand combat with mats, Poe Dameron vented to BB-8 about the identity of the spy. Each member of Black Squadron was a close friend of Dameron, yet each also seemed suspect.

On the Carrion Spike, Terex is asked by his crew about their purpose being far out of First Order space, but Terex refused to answer and retreated to his quarters. He recalled his time as an stormtrooper during the Battle of Jakku.

Terex and other stormtroopers at Jakku.

When a Star Destroyer crashed into the ground, Terex's corporal ordered them to keep fighting, but Terex's companion Corlac refused and shot the corporal. After convincing Terex to join him in deserting, Corlac took off his armor and buried it. Terex did the same.

Back on the Carrion Spike, Terex gazed at his armor, now embellished and modified.

On D'Qar, Muva repaired Dameron's starfighter. Dameron allowed Muva to take it for a test flight. C-3PO interrupted, informing Dameron that one of their droid spies on Kaddak had sent word that it acquired much crucial intelligence on the First Order, including the location of Supreme Leader Snoke. However, the transmission ended before the information could be sent, and Dameron was to take C-3PO and another Black Squadron pilot to uncover the truth. However, Dameron still did not know who the traitor was and decides to travel on a freighter with BB-8 and C-3PO.

Captain Phasma asked for a report from Terex on his actions, but he disabled all communications, weapons, and engines on the Carrion Spike.

Returning to Terex's Jakku flashback, Corlac and Terex built an ugly from the cockpit of an AT-AT, the engines of an U-wing, and the wings of a TIE Interceptor. Terex insisted on regrouping with the Empire, but Corlac wanted to go to the Outer Rim first. Terex went to get one last thing before they left.

Looking at the smuggling freighter they were going to fly to Kaddak in, Dameron warned it would not be very helpful in getting out of trouble.

On the Carrion Spike, Terex emerged from his quarters in his old armor, which was the thing he had retrieved from Jakku before he left.

Muva thanked Dameron for allowing him on the mission, but Dameron warned that Kaddak was a completely lawless planet.

The Carrion Spike landed on Kaddak, where Terex left the ship and the crew behind as he went out to find something important that he had lost. In the past, Kaddak was also the planet that Corlac and Terex flew to, and now Dameron arrived there as well.

  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.
