Matt Turhaya is busy drinking himself to oblivion in the Mos Eisley Cantina, wrecked by the loss of his wife and daughter. He is been doing this for six months, whenever he is not helping his brother Jamie at his shop. When he encounters the Riileb Tere Metallo at a sabacc game, he is intrigued enough to wager the shop itself. He does not own it, so he still owes Metallo 150,000 credits. With Jamieís permission, Matt joins the crew of Metalloís ship, the Star Quest, as a pilot to work off the debt. 
A month later, on Kabaira, Metallo introduces Matt to a few friends of hers. While they are chatting, a pair of Imperials show up, looking for suspected insurgents. Worse still, one of them was a former classmate of Mattís from the Academy, who recognises him. One of Metalloís friends, Del Hunter, turns out to be an insurgent who begs her for help. She hides Hunter, but can not stop the Imperials from dragging Matt away.
She will not leave Matt behind to face the Empireís tender mercy, and stages a jailbreak with Hunterís help. She not only gets Matt, but a pair of Hunterís rebel friends as well. One of them suddenly turns on them, trying to shoot Metallo - but Matt takes the blaster bolt instead. Thankfully, he is only nicked, and the Star Quest escapes Kabaira with Hunter and the other surviving Rebel (his son).

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