Plot summary[]

In Wild Space[]

On the Star Herald in Wild Space, CR-8R "Crater" was angry with Emil Graf's Kowakian monkey-lizard, Noni had stolen Crater's laser welder. An angry Crater told Emil that he needed the laser welder to fix the power stabilizers and that Noni knew that his repulsors were not working like they should so he couldn't fly up and steal the laser welder back. Crater never understood the Graf family obsession with Kowakain monkey-lizards, including his grandfather, Milo Graf who Crater tried to convince to get a more appealing pet. The BB-series astromech droid, BB-00 beeped to Emil about Crater's complaining, Emil agreed but acknowledged that Crater had a point. It reminded him of a story his great aunt Lina Graf told him about something that happened a long time ago.

Stopping a thief[]

During the days of the Galactic Republic,[3] Lina Graf loved to eat at Dex's Diner on Coruscant where she said the best nerfburgers could be found. A Jedi Knight sat down at the diner putting a device down next to him. A Pa'lowick was sitting nearby and got up and stole the device. Dexter Jettster called for the thief to be stopped. The Jedi Knight was Obi-Wan Kenobi and he left the diner to track down the thief. After maneuvering through a crowd, Obi-Wan caught up to the thief who was at the edge of the street. But she leaped across lanes of speeders to get to the other side. Emil Graf continued on with story, telling Crater that the thief, Tri Tellon could not believe her luck. Back at her home that she shared with Magreda. She told Magreda that she thought it had mystical powers and could make them very rich. Tri noticed that something was wrong, thinking that Magreda would be pleased with her. Magreda turned around and relieved themselves as Obi-Wan Kenobi who was very pleased. The Jedi used the Force to grab the device back. Dexter Jester blocked off Tri's means of escape. Dexter thanked Obi-Wan for helping him recover it.

Learning a lesson[]

Back on the Star Hound, Emil Graf told Crater that the lesson of the story was that nine out of ten times you are not half as smart as you think you are. Crater agreed and activated the sprinkler system, scaring Noni and making him drop the laser welder. Emil returned the laser welder to Crater and the droid asked if he wanted nerfburgers for dinner.

  2. 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.
  3. 3.0 3.1 Tales from Wild Space: "Stop, Thief!" takes place between Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to 32 BBY, and Obi-Wan and Anakin 2 states that Anakin Skywalker is twelve years old during the events of Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that Skywalker was born forty-one years before the Rogue One mission to steal the Death Star plans, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Therefore, Skywalker was born in 41 BBY, Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin takes place in 29 BBY, and Tales from Wild Space: "Stop, Thief!" takes place some time between these two years.
