Plot summary[]

The spy and the bounty hunter[]

The episode opens in a deserted street at night. A green alien and a BB-series astromech droid are running through the streets. They flee inside a house and the green alien says they have to send a distress call to the Resistance. The droid says its dangerous in Binary but the green alien says that they must take the risk. The green alien transmits a message in a datapad just as they hear footsteps.

A laser burns through the door. The green alien and the BB astromech droid are cornered by a tall, hulking alien bounty hunter who laughs and asks what do we have here. The green alien says that it is too late because they have transmitted a distress signal. The alien bounty hunter asks why he is distressed before shooting the astromech droid 2B. The green alien claims that this place would be swarming with Resistance fighters but the alien bounty hunter says it is an opportunity to make more money.

A distress call[]

Aboard the Colossus command bridge, Kazuda Xiono picks up a distress call on a Resistance frequency and informs Captain Imanuel Doza. Kaz says it is coming from the nearby Varkana system. Doza thinks it is a trap but Kaz says that Resistance frequencies are coded and that he wants to check it out.

CB-23 and Jarek Yeager volunteer to come along with Yeager saying that they should help fellow Resistance fighters. Captain Doza warns that the mission would put the Colossus in danger. Yeager convinces Doza to give them one rotation to report back while Xiono tries to request one minute. Yeager tells Xiono to hurry up.

Visiting Vargo Spaceport[]

The Colossus exits hyperspace in the Varkana system. Kaz and Yeager depart in a Star Commuter 2000 shuttle. They are accompanied by the Mirialan pirate Synara San, whom Kaz has enlisted since the mission involves bodily harm. Kaz replies too bad for the "bad guys." Yeager traces the signal to Vargo Spaceport and brings the shuttle into Varkana's orbit.

The shuttle approaches the spaceport, which lies on top of a plateau. Yeager lands the shuttle outside the spaceport. While disembarking, Kaz gets CB-23 to home in on the distress signal. The group enter the village with CB tracing the signal from across the village. Yeager tells Kaz to keep a low profile. Kaz boasts about his exploits as a spy but trips over a basket of fruits, annoying a local vendor. Kaz apologizes but the purple-skinned alien vendor hurls a fruit at him.

A Gran vendor named Lechee notices the Colossus visitors and calls out to them, offering to sell his goods. Yeager responds that they are not interested. The Gran takes an interest in CB-23 and offers to buy the droid but Synara tells him to let it go. Lechee lets them go but tells them that he has the best parts they can buy. Kaz tells him that they don't want to buy anything because they are meeting with a friend. Lechee tells them to come back to his ship if they change their mind. Once they have left, he pulls out his comlink and contacts an unidentified figure, telling them to keep an eye out for the offworlders and their ball droid.

Walking into a trap[]

CB-23 traces the signal to a house with a malfunctioning set of mechanical doors Kaz and his team realized that someone has gotten to their friend first. Synara doesn't think the First Order took their Resistance friend because they would have set up a garrison. Kaz agrees and says that the First Order would have shut the signal down. He gets CB-23 to pinpoint the source of the signal. The droid traces it to a hidden datapad with a data rod attached, which Kaz finds under the kitchen bench.

Kaz gets CB to decrypt it and learns that they are looking for a Resistance spy named Norath Kev. Kaz realizes he is not alone and learns that Kev was tracing First Order involvement in black market activity. Kev had also been identifying First Order contacts including Leechee, the Gran vendor they encountered. Kaz and Yeager realize they have to get out of here.

However, they are cornered by the alien bounty hunter, who has captured Norath. He wants to capture Norath's friends. Kaz tries to deny that they are Norath's friends but the bounty hunter doesn't care. Kaz tells the bounty hunter that he had a list of names of people who are very valuable to the First Order. The bounty hunter replies that is not what he is paid for and that it is not his problem.

Kaz hurls the datapad at the bounty hunter and Yeager shoots it in an attempt to electrocute the bounty hunter. The bounty hunter deflects it with his blaster. Synara kicks the blaster out of the bounty hunter's hand. While Kaz and Yeager retreat, Synara drives the bounty hunter away with her blaster. However, the bounty hunter attacks her with his vibro-ax and the two fight on top of the stony balcony. The bounty hunter fries Synara's blaster with his vibro-ax.

Kaz says that they have to help Synara while Yeager says that she will hold the bounty hunter off while they find a safe place to hide. Kaz, Yeager, and CB-23 retreat. Synara manages to knock the alien bounty hunter to the ground but he grabs one of her legs. The two fight and Synara manages to break away and jump over the balcony but is stung in the back by the vibro-ax The bounty hunter catches up with her but she kicks him over the balcony. An injured Synara looks over the lower balcony and walks away.

Confronting the quisling[]

An injured Synara joins Kaz and the others in the village marketplace. Kaz asks if she is hurt. Synara says that she is fine but that the "sleemo" got away. The team regroup by several containers. Kaz asks what they are dealing with. Synara explains that they are dealing with a bounty hunter rooting out Resistance spies. When Yeager asks Synara if she thinks Norath is still alive, Synara doesn't know but thinks it is unlikely.

Kaz refuses to leave unless they can verify that Norath is alive. Captain Doza asks Yeager about the status of their mission and warns that he cannot leave the Colossus exposed in the Varkana system. Yeager tells Doza to retreat if there is any trouble but Kaz tells the Captain to trust them that they will be out of here soon.

Yeager says that they need leads. Synara suggests Lechee and Kaz thinks that the Gran vendor has some ties to the First Order. Yeager is perplexed at why the First Order would bother with a small-time player like Lechee. Synara says there is little of value in this village. Yeager says that Resistance operatives are high value targets while Synara realizes that Lechee must have found out who Norath was.

While Lechee is counting his credits, he is confronted by Yeager and the others. Yeager asks him where he got that money from. The Gran tells Yeager to mind his own business. Synara disagrees and grabs a sonic blaster and points it at Lechee. Kaz confronts Lechee for exposing Norath Kev to the bounty hunter. Lechee is not intimidated and asks what he is going to do about it.

Kaz asks CB-23 to make Lechee talk. The droid flashes one of her grappling arms and scratches the side of his stony table. Lechee is not intimidated. Kaz asks Lechee what the bounty hunter did with Norath but the Gran is defiant. The droid continues scratching, annoying Lechee. Synara tells CB to stop because she too is annoyed.

Yeager threatens to rob his credit safe unless Lechee tells him what they need to know. Lechee tells Yeager that the bounty hunter took Norath to his ship and rented out a docking bay hangar in the southside. Before leaving, Synara fries his comlink to prevent Lechee from warning the bounty hunter.

The bounty hunter's ship[]

Kaz and the others head to the southside hangar bay where the find the bounty hunter's ship. Yeager tells Synara to keep an eye out for reinforcements while he, Kaz, and CB-23 sneak aboard the bounty hunter's ship. They enter the ship's cargo bay. Kaz unlocks a cell and finds a bruised Norath inside. He tells Norath that they are here to rescue him and that they are with the Resistance. Norath warns them that this is trap but the ramp closes, trapping them inside the cargo bay.

Speaking over the intercom, the bounty hunter "welcomes" the Resistance operatives aboard. Synara realizes her friends are in trouble. Norath apologizes for their trouble and tells Yeager and Kaz that he was tracking shipments that the First Order moves through black market channels. Kaz deduces that Lechee double-crossed Norath. Norath says that greed got the better of him. Norath had compiled a list of First Order sympathizers and dealers but sighs that it lost, thinking he has failed. Kaz reassures Norath that CB-23 downloaded a copy of the list, delighting the Resistance spy.

The alien bounty hunter enters the ship's cockpit and removes his mask. He contacts Commander Pyre via holoprojector, informing him that he has captured more Resistance operatives and says that he charges the standard rates. Pyre thanks the alien bounty hunter, who is revealed to be the Iktotchi Ax Tagrin, for his services. Ax says that he only serves the winning side and sends Pyre the coordinates to pick up the prisoners. When Ax mentions that one of the prisoners is named Kaz, Commander Pyre says that they will meet him at the rendezvous point shortly.

Bringing the ship down[]

As Ax fires up the engine, Norath warns them that they have to get out of here. Kaz and CB-23 try to find a way out while Synara tries to shoot at the cockpit. However, it is armored and Ax waves to her as he takes off into the skies. Synara spots a speeder bike. Meanwhile, Kaz tries to figure a way out to bring the ship down or prevent Ax from rendezvousing with the First Order. He and Norath manage to open a panel. Yeager quips that Kaz is a good at bringing ships down. While Kaz removes the batteries, CB-23 plugs into the network terminal to override the system. This causes an alarm to flash.

Ax presses a button which electrocutes the computer, driving Kaz and Norath away. Kaz tells CB-23 to let go however the ball droid persists, causing the ship systems to overheat. Ax rushes out to confront the prisoners while one of the ship's fuses blow up, causing the ship to descend. Synara follows them in her speeder bike and watches the ship plummeting towards the ground.

Ax's ship ploughs through a pillar of rock before crash-landing on the rocky earth. Kaz, Yeager, and CB-23 are alright but Norath has sustained injuries to his head and leg. Kaz helps an injured Norath out of the ship while a damaged CB-23 rolls along. Kaz reassures her that they will get her fixed.

Fighting the bounty hunter[]

However, Ax has survived the crash and watches them from the top of his ship. He follows them and Yeager shoots at him while telling the others to take cover. Ax and Yeager engage in a gun battle with Yeager taking shelter behind a rock. Kaz grabs a metal tool and attacks Ax from behind, knocking the blaster out of his hand. However, Ax is resistant to Kaz's attacks and knocks him to the ground.

Yeager shoots at him but Ax knocks his blaster out of his hand and charges at him with his vibro-ax. The two engage in hand to hand combat. Ax gains the upper hand and holds the vibro-ax over Yeager's head. He tells Yeager to surrender so that he can get paid.

However, Synara arrives on her speeder bike and attacks him with her blaster. He deflects her blaster with his vibrio-ax and they engage in hand to hand combat. Synara tells Kaz to contact Captain Doza for an evacuation. Kaz and Naroth prepare to leave on Synara's speeder bike but Ax hurls his vibro-ax at them, narrowly missing them.

As the two race away, Kaz spots CB. Yeager grabs Ax's vibro-ax and aids Synara in the fight against Ax. Despite their combined efforts, they are unable to match Ax's strength and endurance. Deciding to finishing them off, he charges at them with his vibro-ax. However, he strikes his ax against something that triggers an explosion.

First Order entanglements[]

Kaz and Norath spot the explosion while riding away on their bike. Kaz contacts Yeager but hears no response and fears for the worse. Returning to the village, Kaz contacts Captain Doza to request an evacuation. However, Captain Doza says that the First Order has already arrived. Commander Pyre's Resurgent-class Star Destroyer exits hyperspace and dispatches several fighters and a transport. Kaz and Norath agree that this day keeps getting worse and worse as the episode comes to an end.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The Missing Agent. Walt Disney Television. Walt Disney Television. Archived from the original.
  2. The Star Wars Book dates the Battle of Batuu, which is featured in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, to 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places in 0 BBY. Therefore Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge must take place in 34 ABY. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary places the events of "Station to Station" before Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, meaning that "Station to Station" also takes place in 34 ABY. As "The Missing Agent" takes place shortly after "Station to Station," it must take place around the same time.
