Official description[]

Rey discovers a stubborn, unmoving Happabore sitting on the ship she's meant to tow back.

Plot summary[]

Rey travels to the Concession Stand in Niima Outpost to take up a job to haul a pile of scrap heap for Unkar Plutt, who is offering ten portions. Plutt initially dismisses Rey's offer since she is a "lone scavenger." Undaunted, Rey tells him to give her the coordinates so that "she can prove him wrong." Plutt reluctantly gives her the coordinates but places a collateral on her speeder if she fails the errand. Rey responds by placing a bet of twenty portions since she is risking her speeder. Plutt laughs at her and warns her not to damage "his speeder."

Rey finds out where the problem lies.

Rey travels on her speeder to the site, which turns out to be a wrecked Quadrijet transfer spacetug. She finds a happabore lying beside the spacetug. Realizing that Plutt is setting her up to fail, Rey tries to get the creature to move. She tries to push the happabore up but the creature struggles to move. Rey then realizes that the happabore is having trouble breathing because something is blocking its nose. Steeling herself, Rey digs into the creature's nose and retrieves a piece of machinery that was obstructing its nasal passage.

After shaking off the happabore's snot, Rey tries to tow the spacetug back to Niima Outpost with her speeder but the machine is too heavy. Fortunately for Rey, the grateful happabore helps her push it back to Niima Outpost. Unkar Plutt is dismayed to see that Rey has successfully accomplished her errand with the help of the happabore. A smug Rey tells the junk dealer that he owes her twenty portions.

  4. In this episode, Rey is visibly older than her appearance in The Rise of Kylo Ren 4, but it also takes place before she left Jakku in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens to 34 ABY, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren six years earlier. Therefore, this episode takes place between 28 ABY and 34 ABY
