Duncan and Daro, race off on a single speeder bike toward the crashed Jedi fighter. Thane hovers overhead in the ship, Zöe. The jungle below is teaming with plant and animal life. Arriving at the craft, Duncan and Daro notice that the engines and underside of the vessel have been heavily damaged. Duncan proceeds to de-activate the ship’s astromech droid and pulls it from the ship. Daro stands guard.
Daro hears the sounds of heavy footsteps and breaking branches in the distance. They quickly get louder. An enormous insect-like creature – an acklay – bursts into the clearing created by the crashed ship. It lunges at Daro to attack.
Back at the starship hanger, Vekis stands guard by the tunnel entrance. Caelium, returning from his reconnaissance of the bar, warns Vekis that at least one of the bounty hunters, a large human, is headed his way, through the tunnels. Vekis takes cover and awaits the bounty hunter.
Just then, a grey-bearded man, in brown robes appears in the hanger, seemingly out of nowhere. By this time, Caelium has returned. Waving a hand, the man tells Vekis and Caelium to remain calm and continue what they were doing. They both seem happy to comply. The robed man is accompanying nine children, ranging in age from five to twelve years. He leads them past Caelium and Vekis, who appear not to take notice. The children begin to climb aboard the partly damaged passenger transport.
Vekis calls Thane on the com, urging him to hold his fire on the passenger vessel, since it is carrying an old man and some children. Daro, trying to escape the huge beast, overhears this and cries for Thane to shoot the ship down.
Vekis sees a rather large human male, carrying a blaster rifle, and a Sullustan running up the tunnel toward him. The Sullustan tosses something in his direction. At the same moment, the passenger transport takes flight to escape the hanger.
In the jungle, the acklay takes a swipe with its huge pincer-like leg at Daro and Duncan’s speeder bike as they try to flee. The blow breaks the bike in half. Above the battle, Thane decides to ignore Daro’s advice and uses the ship’s turbolasers to blast the creature, slicing one of its legs clean off. He then interposes the ship between the creature and his companions and lowers the boarding platform. Daro jumps onto the platform, then fires at the Acklay. He damages it very lightly, but, in the process of shooting, Daro accidently hits the servo-coupler on the ship’s aft. This fuses the control that closes the platform door.
In the hanger, the Sullustan has lobbed a stun grenade where Vekis and Caelium are standing. The grenade hits something and deflects backward, causing stun damage to everyone, including the two bounty hunters. The human bounty hunter fires a disruptor rifle at Vekis, who is taking cover behind some crates, damaging him. Vekis closes on the human to strike him with his great vibro-sword, opening a large gash across his chest. Caelium moves in and fires his blaster at the Sullustan, causing some stun damage. The human bounty hunter disengages with Vekis and fires his disruptor at him, causing significant damage. The Sullustan backs up into the tunnel and fires at Vekis, but misses.
As the speeder bike falls apart, Duncan jumps toward the ship, but fails horribly and tumbles down. The creature lunges toward him, but re-injures itself in the attempt. With a screech, it runs off into the jungle. The ship descends slightly, allowing Duncan to clamber aboard.
Flying above the jungle, Thane learns that the loading platform on the ship is jammed open. He takes the ship back to the hanger. On the way, he notices flashes of what looks to be blaster fire coming from inside the hanger. Thane looks around for the passenger transport, but can’t find it. He assumes that it flew into orbit, but their ship is unable to pursue due to the jammed gangway. Thane sets the ship down beside the hanger.
Vekis, critically wounded, falls back behind cover and hits himself with a stim pack. Caelium calls the ship for help, fires at the human, misses, then dives for cover. Duncan tinkers with the astromech droid while all this is going on.
Daro leaves the ship and runs into the hanger to engage the bounty hunters. The human bounty hunter heals himself with a stim pack. The Sullustan throws a grenade at Daro, which explodes into a cloud of smoke, blocking vision into the tunnel.
Thane tells Duncan to stop what he’s doing and fix the gangway to allow it to close. Thane readies the YT-2400’s guns to attack anything that tries to get airborne.
Vekis steps in front of the tunnel, realizes that he can’t see into it, then jumps back behind cover. Daro, using his combat sensor to locate the bounty hunters, walks into the tunnel and strikes one of them with a vibro-knife. Caelium runs to the bounty hunters’ ship and hides behind it, readying his force pike. The two bounty hunters run through the smoke to their ship. The human manages to get inside one of the hatches. By this point, the smoke has expanded to engulf their ship.
Vekis runs toward the bounty hunters’ ship, now inside the smoke, and tosses a concussion grenade into it. This causes a very loud explosion inside the ship. Outside the ship, Caelium swings wildly with his force pike at where he believes the Sullustan to be. He hits him and, accidentally, Vekis too. The stun damage seems to have knocked the Sullustan down. Daro moves through the smoke toward the bounty hunters’ ship. His combat scanner shows three life forms at the back of the ship. Not being able to see, he readies his attack.
The ship’s hatch closes and the engines start up. Up in the light freighter, Thane notices a massive energy surge coming from the bounter hunter’s ship inside the hanger. He warns the group to clear out – the ship is going critical! Thane proceeds to fly Zöe out of harm’s way. This causes Duncan, who is working on the hatch, to tumble into the ship. He gets his bearings and straps himself down.
Vekis grabs the limp body at his feet and runs toward the tunnel – he communicates this to the others. Caelium attempts to follow him in the smoke, but seems to get lost. Daro heads toward the tunnel, running past Vekis.
The high pitched sound of the ship’s engines is building in intensity. Caelium hears the opening of the hatch, then running footsteps heading in his direction. He calls out for Vekis as a large person grabs him and runs for the hanger’s exit. They make it outside, down a hill. Caelium can now see that it is the human bounty hunter who is carrying him, obviously having mistaken Caelium for his Sullustan companion. They hit the deck. Just then, the ship goes critical and the hanger explodes. The bounty hunter gazes up to the sky as the debris showers the spaceport. He collapses.
