Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Han and Chewie take a new job defending a moisture farmer from a local gang known as the Cloud-Riders.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Han Solo and Chewbacca are hired by Ramiz, a moisture farmer on Aduba-3, to protect his village from a band of local thugs known as the Cloud-Riders, led by Serji-X Arrogantus. Han and Chewbacca hire six misfit spacers to help them with the task, including Don-Wan Kihotay, an old man who thinks he is a Jedi Knight, and Jaxxon, a rabbit-like Lepi with a mean disposition. Serji-X tries to convince Han to forget about his mission to protect the peasants and even offers him compensation, but Han declines.

Meanwhile, on Yavin 4, Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, and R2-D2 leave in a scout ship to search for a location for the new Rebel Alliance base.
