Plot summary[]

The crew of the Millennium Falcon have split up aboard the gambler's paradise known as The Wheel. While the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 take the unconscious Luke Skywalker to the Wheel's medical center, the Wheel's administrator Senator Simon Greyshade arranges to have Princess Leia brought to his quarters. And Chewbacca, having made his way to the Crimson Casino on the Wheel's upper level, is captured by members of the Wheel Security Force and forced to enter The Big Game. In the meantime, Han Solo is also entered into The Big Game, not knowing that Chewbacca too is a contestant in the gladiatorial event. This has all been arranged by Greyshade, who is working out a deal with Imperial Commander Strom to have all of the Rebels meet an untimely end on the condition that Leia be allowed to stay with Greyshade on the Wheel.
