- "Couple of years ago, it was, back on Aduba III. I got hired by some ugly mug named Han Solo. Joined up with seven other mercs, each one more hard-scrabble than the next. We went up against the Cloud Riders, a bunch of sorry swoop jockeys from the Outer Rim. Chased em off good and proper, with the help of a big behemothy type thing."
- ―Jaxxon, member of the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3
Although they only remained together for one mission, three of the surviving members; Jaxxon, Amaiza Foxtrain and Jimm Doshun later reunited against the threat of bounty hunter Beilert Valance who mistakenly believed Jimm to be Luke Skywalker.
The Star-Hoppers were dubbed "Sprites" by Solo due to a joke that Merri Shen, whom Han rescued from high-hounds, was not much bigger than a Wodanian wood-sprite. They were also known as the Amazing Eight.
