Star Wars Missions 12: The Vactooine Disaster was the twelfth installment of Star Wars Missions.
The planet Vactooine is in grave danger—a squadron of ruthless battle droids is about to attack. The droids are part of a sinister conspiracy to control the galaxy. As a member of the Rebel Alliance, you must protect the innocent planet from certain doom. Your mission: to prevent the Vactooine Disaster!
May the Force be with you.
On Tatooine, Jabba the Hutt inspects the drone barge recently delivered to him. His majordomo, Bib Fortuna, discovers that the barge once belonged to Boonda, a fact which piques Jabba's interest. On Boonda's Moon, Groot and Pelvin are rescued by an Imperial relief force, but shortly after their departure, Boonda is contacted by Jabba, who provides the manufacturer with the location of the renegade droid army. Boonda tells Groot of this, who decides to bring Boonda along to Vactooine. The Hutt, however, is reluctant, and finds himself wanting to escape his predicament.
On Vactooine, 12-4C-41 is preparing to set up his droid foundries, when his master, Olag Greck, meets him, and scolds him for his prevous detour at Tatooine. Meanwhile, Millennium Falcon, carrying Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Q-7N, along with Rogue Squadron, enter the Vactooine system, only to be met by Groot's Imperial shuttle.
The shuttle disables all the Alliance craft bar one, which pursues the Imperial craft, disabling it. Boonda then chooses to escape in one of the Lambda's pods. Despite forcing the shuttle to crash, the Rebel too plummets towards Vactooine, and makes a rough landing. Upon landing, the Rebel encounters Boonda, and saves him from several Stormtroopers. Venturing with Boonda further into the wilderness of Vactooine, the Rebel encounters the downed Imperial shuttle, and captures Groot and Pelvin. Speeding to the Vactooine Mining Colony, the Rebel infiltrates the facility and encounters Olag Greck. Greck panics, and calls in Wuntoo, but the Rebel is able to convince the traffic controller droid that Greck is manipulating him, and that he is committing acts of evil. The droids are swayed, and rebel against Greck. Wuntoo reveals that the entire revolt was actually Greck's plan, and that he intended to create a gargantuan droid army on Vactooine to overthrow the Empire. The Rebels, satisfied, apprehend Greck, obtain the Decimator, and extend an invitation to join the Rebellion to Boonda.
