Plot summary[]

On the planet Garel, Likana and C-3PO were captured by Director Orlok after trying to shut down the communications tower on the planet. He contacted General Armitage Hux with the news that his communication system was operational and ready to be tested. Likana asked C-3PO if he could run fast as she secretly changed one of the cards in the communication system to play a different message. Hux warned Orlok that his system better work as he prepared for its use.

But when he started it, a message called for help from soldiers who want to fight the First Order. Hux was outraged by the failure as Orlok was unsure what to do next. He turned to Likana and C-3PO and blamed them for the problem.

The duo sprinted out of the room as Orlok ordered their capture. They entered the elevator, but C-3PO was still worried they would be captured. Likana reprogrammed the order to capture them to a new location so when they exited the elevator there was no one around and they escaped the tower.

They ran through the streets of Garel City but were quickly stopped by Orlok. He was angry and accused Likana of humiliating him. It was his last chance to prove himself, and Hux was never going to take him seriously after that. Before he could stun Likana and C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB-8 came from behind him and stunned him.

Back on their starship, General Leia Organa knew C-3PO was telling the truth about the mission. She then turned to Likana and thanked the girl. She thought that the Duros was very brave with her actions but she recommended that she be safer next time, making fun of Commander Poe Dameron. Dameron warned the droids about being reckless although BB-8 believed that he should learn it instead. Dameron told them to leave the First Order to the Resistance, but C-3PO told him that they were all part of the Resistance now.
