- "Well, the bounty hunter we ran into on Ord Mantell changed my mind."
- ―Han Solo
The Mission to Ord Mantell took place during the Blockade of Yavin.
On Ord MantellEdit
After the reparation of the Millennium Falcon, the bounty hunters Skorr and Gribbet discovered the presence of Han Solo in Worlport and decided to capture him and earn the bounty placed on his head by Jabba Desilijic Tiure.
At night, they captured Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa and proposed Solo to exchange them. They hope to capture Han Solo during the exchange. The exchange was done in the Stellar-energy station atop the Ten Mile Plateau. Eventually, they were rescued by Chewbacca in a cargo flyer.
The rebels escaped the planet with the Millennium Falcon. In the Bright Jewel system, they were caught between an Imperial fleet on maneuvers and Skorr's starship. Eventually, the rebels manage to lure the Imperials and the bounty hunters were captured by an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer.
