On the Star Herald travelling through the Shosho Belt, Emil Graf and his droids were about to embark on a dangerous voyage to Shosho Outpost. CR-8R "Crater" was very reluctant to go but this reminded BB-00 "Boo" of a story about a very unfortunate battle droid.
Decades earlier on the planet Opop Hibbedit, the Confederacy of Independent Systems was leaving the planet. But as the B1-series battle droids were leaving on the Multi-Troop Transport, one of the droids named, Q5-7070 fell out of the transport and was left behind. The droid was dirty after falling in mud and all his equipment was not working. Q5-7070 decided to follow the direction of the transport in hopes of reuniting with it.
As he journeyed through the forest, he was captured by carnivorous plants. The Carnivorous plants wanted to turn Q5-7070 into a decoration for their home. The plants wrapped the droid in vines and got ready to divide him up but were stopped when they saw the incoming threat of the Magnetic rock chimps. The plants released the droid and the made a quick dash away.
Q5-7070 thanked the rock chimps but the creatures turned on him. They saw the battle droid as food and chased him out of the forest. But then a large bird flew by and ate the battle droid. Realizing that the droid was not edible, the bird spit out the droid shortly after, in front of squad. Q5-7070's lieutenant told him that his behavior was unacceptable but Q5 was too exhausted to argue. The droids got back on their transport but on the way back up, Q5-7070 fell out of the transport again and back to the surface of Opop Hibbedit.
Back to the present day, a Shosho Outpost staff member asked Graf and his droids who their trip was too the outpost. The three were all bruised up from the difficult travel to the outpost. The staff member reminded them that the journey was more important than the destination.

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: The Big March" takes place during the second year of the Clone Wars, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states began in 22 BBY, meaning "The Big March" takes place in 20 BBY.
