Quist provided Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Leia, Windy, Biggs and Annikin Starkiller, together with Artwo and Threepio with a plan for getting offworld. He gave them badges and disks so they could masquerade as the crew of a Baltarian freighter. The two young princes would be hidden in microcases and put into hibernation.
Quist's plan, however, turned out to be a trap. The Baltarian freighter was surrounded by Imperial troops and its captain was none other than Valorum, a Sith Knight. It was unclear if Quist was a double agent.
Behind the scenesEdit
Quist remained identical to his earlier portrayal in the first draft. He was now operating on the world of Townowi, which had replaced Aquilae.
