Plot summaryEdit

Luke Skywalker and C-3PO were fleeing Imperial forces when he was forced to hide in a comet and crash on an ice-covered world. With his ship damaged and communications out, he was forced to survive the night. His heat ran out and he collapsed. When he came to, he was lying on the back of a creature. A woman and her father were arguing about his fate. He surprised the man, an Imperial Governor hiding on this planet, when he woke up and when the man tried to shoot him, he struck out with his lightsaber, destroying the blaster. Skywalker orders 3PO to lock up the man. The next morning, Skywalker and the woman, Frija, head back to his crashed ship. They want to salvage the communicators. Skywalker thanks Frija for saving him, and she tells him she is glad she found him. She also reveals why they are isolated on this planet, Hoth. As Skywalker finishes salvaging parts, the Governor reappears, having broken out of his prison. He tries to shoot Skywalker, but Frija knocks him aside to save him. She then jumps unto a tauntaun to save the communications equipment. The Governor aims for the parts, but shoots Frija instead. Blaming Luke, he turns the blaster unto the young Rebel. Skywalker is forced to slice the blaster, but ends up hitting the Governor, revealing him to be a Human replica droid. Frija calls out to him, and she is also a droid. She tells him the truth, that they were made to be decoys. She thanks him for bringing meaning to her life and then finally shuts down. Luke buries the two droids in unmarked graves and calls the Rebel leaders, suggesting they use this world as their next haven.
