"The Trigon Unleashed" is the third episode of Star Wars: Droids: The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Written by Peter Sauder and Richard Beban and directed by Ken Stephenson, the episode originally aired on ABC on September 21, 1985.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Thall and R2-D2 set off to destroy the Trigon One, leaving C-3PO and Kea behind to keep them safe. While trying to pick up a HoloNet signal to find a comedic program, Threepio accidentally picks up a transmission from Tig Fromm to his father where Tig promises to find the Trigon One.

The Fromm Gang attacks Threepio and Kea. Thall rescues him, but the Fromm gang chases them into a trap. Tig has kidnapped Jord and Demma and uses them as a bargaining chip for the Trigon One. Thall stalls for time by refusing to talk to Tig, but agreeing to talk to Sise. This makes Sise even more angry at Tig's failure.

Kea tries to figure out a plan to take over the Trigon One and use it against the Fromm Gang, but Thall still believes that it's too powerful, and plans to trick the Fromm Gang into using the weapon against themselves. Thall tells Sise that the weapon is on Ingo, but Sise refuses to release the prisoners.

R2-D2 comes up with a plan to escape: they distract the guard with a promise of hidden jewels, then overpower him. They rescue Demma and escape the Fromm Base. Tig pilots the Trigon One back, but realizes too late that Thall has reprogrammed the weapon to crash into the base, destroying the criminals. Both Tig and Sise escape the base, and Tig must run from his angry father.
