As HIMS Liquidator lies in wait over Delrakkin for the arrival of the Death Star I, Admiral Termo views a holotape recorded by Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin several weeks prior. Tarkin's holorecording tells Termo to send a coded transmission to B90-478R, and to await further instructions.
Meanwhile, back on Yavin 4, C-3PO, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo explain to General Jan Dodonna about the contaminated bacta that the Death Star had been carrying. Alarmed, Dodonna decides to dispatch a team to Thyferra to investigate. Organa volunteers, and she and her entourage board the Millennium Falcon, and set course for Thyferra. On the way, R2-D2 is able to repair the ancient droid, Q-7N.
Back on the Liquidator, Termo contacts B90-478R, only to learn that he is, in fact, speaking with Galactic Emperor Palpatine. Palpatine informs him that Tarkin is dead, and the Death Star was destroyed.
The Falcon enters the Polith system safely, with a Y-wing brought in tow as a backup. However, upon landing on Thyferra, all of the Rebels are captured. But Q-7N and one of the Rebels escape, with a view to helping the others. They commandeer the Y-Wing and land it a few blocks away from the Imperial garrison. The Rebel then tries to find Voralla Morbo, a local who is sympathetic to the Rebellion. However, on the way, they are tricked by a Kubaz, and almost robbed. The Rebel is able to fight their way out of the situation, save a Vratix named Plurra from slavery and return to the other Rebels.
The group meet with Morbo, and she tells them that a modified Imperial Carrack cruiser picked up a large amount of alazhi several weeks ago, and shipped it to Delrakkin. Picking up on the lead, Organa, Solo and Skywalker prepare to set course for Delrakkin.
