Plot Edit

Darth Vader and The Emperor are growing impacient with the search for The Rebels and feel, even with the help of the full Imperial Armada, that the search isn't producing expected results. While on their way back to Rebel base on planet Hoth, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker receive a Rebel distress signal from planet Verdanth, and after contacting the Rebels base they learn that the Rebels have intercepted a Imperial Probe Droid signal from planet Verdanth. The Imperial signal also indicates that the Probe is connected to Imperial High Command. Rebels do not want to risk sending a squad of troopers to recover the Probe Droid, because they suspect a trap, so they have send C-3PO and R2-D2 instead to scout the planet. Indeed the Rebel distress signal is from C-3PO and R2-D2. After a small argument Luke Skywalker convinces Han Solo to diverge from their original heading of planet Hoth, to planet Verdanth to rescue C-3PO, R2-D2 and possibly to recover the Probe Droid. Upon arrival Luke Skywalker and Han Solo find C-3PO and R2-D2 to be under fire from the Probe Droid which has been programed to fire an all droids, but as soons as Luke and Han arrive the probe stops firing. Luke decides to investigate the Probe Droid. In the mean while The Empire has been fully aware of the situation on Verdanth, of the droid first sent there, and has been waiting for the eventual human contact. When The Empire receives message from probe of human contact, Darth Vader enters a Cybernetic Chamber which allows him to connect directly to the probe on planet Verdanth. When Luke Skywalker gets close enough to the Probe Droid an Energy Shield surrounds him, and Darth Vader using the Cybernetic Chamber, attacks Luke with the Force through to droid intent on probing Lukes mind for the location of the Rebel base. During Vaders attack Luke is unable to move, and Hans blaster is not strong enough to punch through the Energy Shield. On a daring move R2-D2 approaches the Probe Droid, which causes the probe to drop shield and attempt to fire at R2 because of the probes programming, this gives Han Solo a change to fire. After the probe is destroyed Luke seems to be a little bit croggy, but mostly fine. After everything that has happened C-3PO, R2-D2, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker return to the Millenium Falcon to return to their trip to planet Hoth and to the Rebel base.
