This book collects together the following stories:
  • Welcome to Kalarba
    In their first adventure in the Kalarba System, Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio arrive at Hosk Station, where they meet the intergalactic criminal, Olag Greck!

  • The Greed of Olack Greck
    In the Star Wars galaxy, automatons are so much necessary property, but even first-degree droids are considered expendable! Despite their differences, See-Threepio and Artoo-Detoo know that the best way to survive is to stick together. Thank the maker!

  • The Indobok Pirates
    A gang of interplanetary thieves steal See-Threepio and Artoo-Detoo from the Pitareeze family, and take the droids to Kalarba's moon, Indobok. The droids meet a nefarious character from their past, and realize that their troubles have just begun!

  • The Saga of C-3PX
    In a deadly case of mistaken identity, See-Threepio and Artoo-Detoo become entangled in an illegal operation on the Hosk moon, and are forced to enter a droid battle arena.

  • Battle of the B'rknaa
    Corellian rogue Jace Forno leases the dysfunctional duo for a deadly mission to the moon Indobok!

  • Short Cut
    In the droid trade the only use for old units is as spare parts and scrap. So even See-Threepio is impressed when he and Artoo meet veritable antiques Q-E and 2-E, two diminutive Model-Es who have operated a nursery for several generations of Kalarbans. But despite their longevity, Q-E and 2-E carry a horrific secret that could spell the end for all droids!

  • Artoo's Day Out

  • Countdown at Hosk
    A power core rupture on Hosk forces all life forms to be evacuated, but life forms doesn't include droids! As Olag Greck makes his final stand, Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio race against time to save the industrial moon... but first they'll have to survive Greck's droid armada!

This story occurs approximately 10 years before the Battle of Yavin.
