Plot summary[edit | edit source]
On the Star Herald, CR-8R "Crater" and BB-00 "Boo" were going throughout the parts of the starship, looking for the Kowakian monkey-lizard, Noni who had stolen Boo's radar receiver. Emil Graf questioned all the commotion that was taking place and did not believe it was necessary to go through the ship like they were. Crater didn't care but Graf told him a story about it.
Decades earlier, at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina the bartender, Wuher asked Kabe if she wanted her normal beverage of blue milk. But Kabe didn't have any credits to pay for it and trying to appease Wuher was not working. Kabe stormed off but overheard a conversation between two other patrons of the cantina. One said that a heist could get them more credits then they have ever asked for. Their job was to do a heist on a Imperial cruiser. One of them was very reluctant to participate. The patron stormed off leaving the other one alone. Kabe left the cantina and headed to the cruiser.
The cruiser was being guarded by stormtroopers but Kabe snuck by them. An Imperial officer spotted her though but she managed to slip away from his sight. She did get spotted by stormtroopers who opened fire on her. She dodged their fire and threw down a thermal detonator near them. The detonator exploded and Kabe entered the cruiser.
She spotted her objective ahead but set off the booby traps. She dodged all the red lasers shot at her and escaped the cruiser with her prize. When she went back to the cantina she surprised the patron with the object. He paid her a lot of credits and Wuher got her an extra glass of blue milk.
Back on the Star Herald, Graf put down a cake which attracted Noni. Graf pointed out that sometimes it is better to take the easy solution. Crater believed that it is because Noni liked space cakes as much as Kabe liked blue milk.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- As shown in "The Lost Stories, Part 3," all the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics do not take place far apart from each other. "Tales from Wild Space: The Best Pet" depicts CR-8R being aware of the events following 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 to 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the fall of the First Order to 35 years after A New Hope. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates A New Hope to 0 ABY, meaning that Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi takes place in 34 ABY, the First Order fell in 35 ABY, and the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics take place some time in between those years.
- "Tales from Wild Space: The Heist" features Wuher as the bartender of Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina, meaning that it takes place before Doctor Aphra Annual 3, in which Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina has a different bartender. Doctor Aphra Annual 3 takes place in between the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places to 0 ABY and 3 ABY. Therefore the latest Doctor Aphra Annual 3 takes place is 3 ABY, and "Tales from Wild Space: The Heist" takes place prior. Furthermore, "Tales from Wild Space: The Heist" takes place during the Imperial Era, which began in 19 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, placing this comic between these two years.
