Plot summaryEdit

Beilert Valance, bounty hunter and droid-hater, leads his mercenary gang on a merciless attack of the Anglebay medical station on Telos-4. There they find a patient called Don-Wan Kihotay in residence who, in his delirium, recounts his adventure with the Star-Hoppers on Aduba-3. But the gang mistakes the Star-Hoppers for the group of Rebels who destroyed the first Death Star, thinking the young farm boy Jimm is actually Luke Skywalker. Thinking of the huge reward for capturing the boy who destroyed the Empire's greatest weapon, as well as the personal enjoyment of punishing someone who favors droids, Valance immediately sets off to find the boy. Jaxxon and Amaiza find out about his plan and go to Aduba-3 to warn Jimm that the bounty hunters are after him. A battle ensues when the gang arrives, and most of them are killed during the fight with the three Star-Hoppers. It is only then that Valance, the lone survivor of his gang, realizes that he was after the wrong boy the whole time, but he makes good his escape by using the blaster built into his cybernetic arm, taking the others by surprise and leaving the planet in his ship Kill Switch.
