Dannen Lifehold is sent from Alderaan by his friend Krell to Rafft to deliver a new bacta tank and some medical supplies to a Rebel cell. His mechanic Purr is very intrigued by what Dannen tells her of this “Rebellion.” On the forest world, Dannen asks about what the Rebellion’s doing here. He is told by commando Tawn Porew that the Empire wants to set up a base here for some unknown reason. If they are discovered, they have had it – they have no ships. He finds himself harassed by base commander Brion Peck – and it quickly turns to accusation when a homing beacon is found in the unloaded bacta tank. But base mechanic Colin tells Peck that Dannen could not have done it – the original seals are still on the tank! They are suddenly told by another Rebel that the Empire’s here – in force. They have an hour at best. Dannen decides, because “it’s the right thing to do,” to take the Rebels off Rafft in the ‘Lifeline’. They find themselves facing an Star Destroyer that takes out the ‘Lifeline’s’ hyperdrive with its first shot. Racing against the tractor beam, Purr pulls off the repair job of a lifetime, and the ‘Lifeline’ hyperjumps to Vondarc. When they arrive there four days later, the group is stunned to learn of Alderaan’s destruction. Krell – Dannen’s friend – was on Alderaan. Dannen decides then and there to join the Alliance full-time as a transport pilot. Purr, of course, comes along for the ride.

This story occurs just after the Battle of Yavin.
