The Assiduous traveled to the planet of Felucia to pick up the proclaimed traitor Admiral, Gilder Varth. It later traveled to Bespin to deliver a shipment of slaves to Darga the Hutt. When the deal went wrong, it returned to the planet with the intent of covering up the Galactic Empire's dealings with Darga, and was embroiled in the brief battle above the planet. Despite launching TIE fighters, it was unable to stop the ships associated with the secret Alderaanian Resistance. Draco contacted the rebels, saying he would hunt them down for their actions there.
