Old age and old injuries are finally starting to catch up with Boba Fett - as boredom and an uncertain future are catching up to Han Solo. While the latter leaves Coruscant to joyride in the Millennium Falcon, Fett accepts a bounty on the infamous “Butcher of Montellian Serat” - Labria the Devaronian. He drags him in the Slave IV, where the old criminal offers him something very valuable to let him go - old music that was banned by the Empire. Fett refuses, but Labria begs him to at least sell the music to a certain person after he is gone. Fett delivers Labria to Devaron for the unheard of reward of 5 million credits - just enough to get Fett a new leg, and to afford cancer treatment. As he mulls over this, he receives a message: Han Solo is on Jubilar. It is time to finally settle an old score, once and for all. 
On the way, Fett listens to Labria’s precious music, and finds himself unusually touched by it. He arrives on Jubilar, and goes on the hunt for Solo. The hunt ends with Han and Fett in a faceoff, both sticking a blaster in the other’s face. Only two things will happen - they either both walk away, or they both die. They can not trust each other to drop their guns.... but strangely, they find they do not hate each other anymore, either. They finally give it up, each going back to their own lives. 

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