In 10 BBY, a skirmish broke out on the planet Savareen between Crimson Dawn, the gang of Tobias Beckett's and the Cloud-Riders to determine who would take control of the coaxium Beckett and his gang had stolen from Kessel.


After losing a shipment of coaxium on Vandor, Beckett's gang and the smuggler Han Solo were forced to pursue other options. They came up with a plan to steal unrefined hyperfuel from Kessel. After completing the Kessel Run, they arrived on Savareen for refinement.[1]


They were tracked to the planet by Enfys Nest's gang of marauders. Nest convinced Solo to help them steal the coaxium from Crimson Dawn.[1]


"You really have it bad for the Falcon, don't ya?"
"It's mutual. Trust me, she belongs with me."
―Lando Calrissian and Han Solo, during their game of Sabacc[src]

After Beckett's death and Qi'ra's departure from Savareen, Solo and Chewbacca were given one of the containers of coaxium by Nest. The pair traveled to Numidian Prime where Lando Calrissian was playing a game of sabacc. Solo was able to steal a sylop from Calrissian, and used it to win the Millennium Falcon. The pair then set off to Tatooine, as Beckett had told Solo he had heard about a job from a big-shot gangster.[1]

Behind the scenes

The skirmish on Savareen appears in the 2018 Star Wars Anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard and written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan.[1]

Tobias Beckett's betrayal during the skirmish was meant to rhyme the moment of the 1977 original trilogy film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in which Han Solo returns during the Battle of Yavin to aide Luke Skywalker in destroying the Death Star, as in both movies, the cynical and older character reluctantly departs and then suddenly returns, though in Beckett's case, it wasn't for heroic nature but rather a betrayal. In addition, Qi'ra's betrayal was present since the earliest incarnations of the story, as she was always intended to be more complicated and ambiguous than Han, at least at that point of their lives.[4]

An early idea that Jon Kasdan pitched in initial drafts of the script was the inclusion of the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk as Enfys Nest's second-in-command before abandoning her at the end.[4]

  3. The timeline provided in Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide places the skirmish on Savareen nine years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. As that film takes place in 19 BBY, we can deduce that the skirmish on Savareen took place in 10 BBY.
