His dreams of becoming a Senator thwarted by the Emperor, Bothan ambassadorial aide Tereb Ab'Lon had decided to join the Rebel Alliance. He quietly drops Imperial Navy operation plans into his astromech droid R2-Z1 (aka "Fweep")'s memory banks. Two years later, he is in a shuttle on the run from the Empire. He heads for a Rebel cell in the Tao-Grant system, nursing his crippled shuttle there as best he can. It proves hopeless - his sublight drive was totally destroyed. The shuttle suddenly lurches out of hyperspace too early, badly injuring Ab'Lon, and crashes into Tatooine. 
Detective for hire Nim Bola has just taken out two bounty hunters who were after an Ithorian hanging around Chalmun's Cantina. He tosses the bodies down the Sarlacc's throat. He spots the shuttle crash and comes to help. He pulls Ab'Lon and Fweep out of the wreckage. He begs Bola to take Fweep to the Alliance. Bola responds by throwing Ab'Lon into the Sarlacc and taking the droid to find out how much the Empire wants for it.

This story occurs approximately 2 years after the Battle of Yavin.
