Plot summaryEdit

After being jettisoned over the deserts of Ingo by an unscrupulous former master, C-3PO and R2-D2 are taken in by land speeder racers Jord Dusat and Thall Joben. When they accidentally discover the location of the Trigon One, a secret weapon created by the criminal Fromm Gang, Jord is kidnapped by Tig Fromm in order to silence him. Joined by Rebel spy Kea Moll, the droids assist Thall in rescuing Jord from Fromm's secret base, destroying much of Fromm's droid army in the process.
