Plot summary[]

In the Outer Rim Territories on the moon Noaxson, Finn and Poe Dameron were being questioned by the pirates, Lannix and Tozzo. They wanted to know where Rey was. The pirates planned to give Finn, Dameron, and Rey over to the First Order who were paying a lot of credits for them. Another pirate, Corrin came by and told they should have had their starships long range communications on. Corrin reported that the other pirates were fighting Rey and would be arriving soon. With that Lannix assumed command of the pirates and ordered them to wait.

Meanwhile, Rey and BB-8 were taking cover as the pirates attacked them. They then leaped out and dodged blaster fire as they made their way through the obstacle course that Dameron and Finn had setup Rey. Rey helped BB-8 get across with The Force as they then chased after the pirates themselves.

Back with the pirates, the others arrived soon after. One of the pirates, Korano did not agree with Lannix assuming leadership and challenged his role. An argument ensued and Finn and Dameron realized that this was their chance to escape. They freed themselves., then took Corrin and his blaster. Lannix ordered the pirates to get them as Finn and Dameron hid behind a boulder. Finn came up with a plan for Dameron to provide him with cover fire while he ran to disable their long range communications system. But the Korano offered to give them to the First Order now with no harm. But he was knocked out by Rey with her quarterstaff.

The pirates attacked Rey as she and BB-8 took out the pirates. Finn and Dameron made a run for it while Rey handled the pirates. She knocked Lannix to ground and disarmed him. But Lannix was not done yet. He threatened to contact the First Order right when he got away. But BB-8 had disabled his communications system, forcing him to give up.

Back on the Millennium Falcon, Rey thanked Finn and Poe for their help with the obstacle course but believed it was best to leave her Jedi training with Master Leia Organa.
