Plot summary[]

While searching for a new planet to host a Rebel base, Luke and Leia's ship gets destroyed, and Han Solo has to come rescue them. They escape, but Solo's ship suffers major damage. Han stops for repairs on Ord Mantell.

When the bounty hunter Skorr sees that Han has landed on Ord Mantell, he hatches a plan to capture Han and cash in on Jabba Desilijic Tiure's death mark against the smuggler. During the night, Skorr kidnaps Luke and Leia and tells Solo that he will free Luke and Leia if Han surrenders to the bounty hunter. As proof of the kidnapping Skorr gives Han Luke's lightsaber.

The next morning Han flies to the arranged meet-up place, Ten Mile Plateau. After Skorr frees Luke and Leia, the three are saved by Chewbacca. They make their way to the Millennium Falcon and escape from the planet.
