- "Why the Alliance would let its most renowned leader risk her life attempting to recruit some broken, useless former historian eludes me... I'll let you explain that to the Emperor... when I deliver you personally!"
- ―Orman Tagge
Princess Leia Organa travels to Metalorn on a mission to spread the message of hope to its residents. Metalorn, a factory planet, has been completely controlled by the Galactic Empire under the direction of Governor Corwyth with no information of the Rebellion reaching its citizens. Leia manages to evade Imperial stormtroopers long enough to contact her former instructor Arn Horada in order to have him spread the word that the Rebel Alliance is actively opposing the Empire's tyranny. She is quickly confronted by Baron Orman Tagge before she is able to establish any details, but manages to escape with the help of a youngster named Tammi.

- Star Wars (1977) 30 takes place after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which includes the Battle of Yavin, but before the death of Baron Orman Tagge. Given that The New Essential Chronology dates the Battle of Yavin as the final event of 0 BBY and also dates Tagge's death to 0 ABY, the events of Star Wars 30 must therefore take place in 0 ABY.
