Publisher's summary[]

Han and Chewie head out to pay their debt to Jabba, when they're attacked by pirates!

Plot summary[]

After bidding farewell to their Rebel friends, Han Solo and Chewbacca set out to return to Tatooine to pay off their debt to Jabba the Hutt. En route, they are hijacked by space pirate Crimson Jack and his gang of thugs. The pirates take the reward money given to Han and Chewbacca by the Rebel Alliance for rescuing Princess Leia Organa but spare their lives.

Forced to lay low because they cannot pay Jabba, the two seek refuge on the planet Aduba-3. There they are hired by Pera, a priest of the Sacred Way, to bury a recently deceased borg. Although they meet with some resistance from the locals who object to having a borg buried in their traditional mound, they do eventually find their way to the burial site. After completing that task, the two smugglers are relaxing in a local cantina, where they are presented with a much deadlier job.
