Plot summary[edit | edit source]

R2-D2 and C-3PO are sent by the Intergalactic Droid Agency to the tiny planet Dodz to serve their new master, crystal merchant Lott Kemp. When the droids arrive on Dodz they discover that Kemp has gone missing and his home has been destroyed. Then Artoo and Threepio meet Jost Ellon, an orphan boy who lives hiding from Governor Kugg, a cruel alien who has dominated Dodz with his killer droid, Destroyer, and he requests heavy taxes to the Dodz's citizens. Traveling to the Ellon's home, Artoo and Threepio discover in it a Ranger X-One, an old defense droid used many years ago to protect crystal mines workers. Activating the Ranger, Ellon and droids arrive to the Citizen's Monthly Council to fight against Kugg, but they arrived too late: the council already accepted to pay Kugg's taxes after they were threatened by him and his Destroyer, which almost destroyed the Council in the process. Ellon, wanting to free his world, went to Kugg's mansion with help of Artoo and Threepio to interrupt the taxes payment and to confront Ranger X-One against Destroyer to defeat Kugg and free Dodz. They succeeded with a help from Artoo and sent Kugg to face Intergalactic trial. Artoo and Threepio then left the planet in order to repair Artoo's serious microsynapse damage sustained during duel of two war droids.
