On the Imperial world of Vennari, the thief Sienn Sconn
needs a job and fast - his rent is overdue. He is eyeing
an old swoop in a watering hole called the Binary Bar
when he spots a young woman who intrigues him. Suddenly
a screaming man runs in, closely followed by a fatal
blaster bolt - and a bunch of stormtroopers who seal the
place off. The bartender replies with a grenade
launcher. The woman escapes in the chaos, closely
followed by Sconn (who fights troopers off her). They
steal a strike speeder and rush off. The Imperials are
hot on their tails, led by Major Gaevril Daraada. The
woman, Shandria L'hnnar, reveals herself to be a New
Republic spy with important info for them - a datacard
containing the plans for "Project Orrad."
Daraada sends an extremely dangerous bounty hunter, one
Pentix Graphyt, after them. After sabotaging his
jetpack, Sconn sends Graphyt flying right into the
spaceport's blockade, blowing them an escape route.
Sconn helps Shandria escape in her Y-Wing, then crawls
through a power / fuel maintenance conduit to freedom.
He finds 25,000 credits in his pocket, courtesy of
Shandria. Well, at least it paid the rent…
