Jabba the Hutt's Nimbanese clerk has some bad news for Jabba - Opun "The Black Hole" Mcgrrr, a Corellian guest at Jabba's townhouse, has stolen accounting droid CZ-3. The Snivvian bounty hunter Takeel is sent out to reclaim the droid. What they do not know was that the droid was stolen from Mcgrrr by Squib mechanic Macemillian Winduarte and his Jawa partner Aguilae, and then sold. And they have just NOW noticed Jabba's name on the restraining bolt they removed from it.... Lhojugg (the aforementioned clerk) discovers that the droid's disappearance was due to someone who used Jabba's pass codes! And that droid has top-secret information in it! Those revelations earn Lhojugg a visit with the Rancor.
Mace and Aguilae track the droid to a Jawa sandcrawler, but the Jawas are more interested in holding them prisoner while they are en route to the annual Jawa swap. CZ-3 had wandered away from the sandcrawler earlier, and got picked up by Mcgrrr's operative. Suddenly, the sandcrawler (which had visited the Lars farm yesterday) is jumped by Imperial stormtroopers. Mace and Aguilae barely make it out in time before the sandcrawler is gutted and the Jawas killed. Meanwhile, CZ-3 escapes from Mcgrrr's operative, at the very speeder lot where Luke Skywalker just sold his speeder for 2,000 credits. Mace and Aguilae return to Mos Eisley, with the damaged R5 nearly sold to the Lars and a Gonk power droid. They come upon Takeel, CZ-5, and the Mcgrrr operative. Takeel's brother destroys the droid and holds the Jenet at gunpoint. He is got lots of evidence of Mcgrrr stealing from Jabba - from CZ-5 itself. It was a sting operation. Mace and Aguilae salvage what they can of CZ-5, repairing the R5 with it.

This story occurs just after the Battle of Yavin.
