Plot summary[edit | edit source]
- "Without the shaman to call the shots, that behemoth's startin' to get really mad! And this time I don't think it's gonna be so particular about who it stomps!"
The Old One has summoned the Behemoth, a giant reptilian monster, to defend the village Onacra from the villainous Cloud-Riders. Serji-X Arrogantus, the leader of the Cloud-Riders, realizes that he and his men have no chance against the beast, and he also realizes that the giant is being controlled by the old shaman. He attacks the Old One, but the Behemoth reacts in time to kill Serji-X. However, the shaman is killed as well, causing the monster to run amok. With the rest of the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3 running for cover, would-be Jedi Knight Don-Wan Kihotay tries to stop the great beast on his own. Hedji tries to help him, but is easily killed by the monster. Han Solo rushes to help Kihotay and uses the man's lightsaber to destroy the Behemoth, saving the village.
