On the Star Herald, BB-00 "Boo" and CR-8R "Crater" were arguing over his construction work. Emil Graf told them too cool it off even though Boo was hurling insults at Crater. Graf told Boo that Crater was right and that he cannot be rude like that. Cooling off reminded him of a story that he had heard.
Decades earlier, a sergeant in the army of the Alliance to Restore the Republic named Maxim was observing a tauntaun named Reebak to train. When Reebak went to go eat food she was pushed away by other tauntauns because of her abnormally long tail. She went to sleep in a cave. But then she was attacked by a wampa who chased her until she fell off a cliff.
Later that day, Maxim noticed a weird bundle of snow at the bottom of the cliff and went to go investigate. He discovered the tautaun there, unconscious and slowly dying. He called in a Tauntaun transport to come rescue her.
Two weeks later, Reebak had recovered and grown close with Maxim. Reebak was ready for training. Maxim taught her to be able to carry Alliance personal.
But then the Galactic Empire launched an attack on Echo Base. Imperial Cold weather assault stormtroopers were firing on the Rebel evacuation starships. But Reeback and Maxim came to the rescue and took out the snowtroopers. The Rebel Alliance was able to escape as Darth Vader, with his red lightsaber ignited.
Back on the Star Herald, Crater asked what happened to Reebak. Graf told him that Reebak was able to escape and became a rebel hero. Graf then went to Boo and said that sometimes we can use our differences in different ways. But Boo still believed it was right.

Notes and references
- As shown in "The Lost Stories, Part 3," the events of all the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics are set a relatively short time apart. "Tales from Wild Space: The Best Pet" depicts CR-8R being aware of the events following those of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, and "The Lost Stories, Part 1" features the First Order. The Star Wars Book places The Last Jedi 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the fall of the First Order 35 years after A New Hope, which, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, corresponds to 34 ABY and 35 ABY, respectively. Therefore, the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics must take place at some point between those years.
- "Tales from Wild Space: A Tauntaun Tail" takes place concurrently with Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY.
