Toryn Farr is the last Rebel to escape Echo Base, flying out on the Gallofree transport Bright Hope with hundreds of wounded (including her sister Samoc). At which point Zuckuss and 4-LOM arrive with their ship Mist Hunter at the battle, having been hired by Vader (they need the money to get Zuckuss cloned lungs). The two bounty hunters chase the Bright Hope and disable it, then joins the rendezvous outside the asteroid belt. Zuckuss guesses the Rebels will be heading outside of the galaxy, while his droid 4-LOM decides to try using intuition itself. They want to infiltrate the Rebellion - and the best way to do that, they decide, would be to get the Bright Hopeís survivors to them. On that ruined ship, Toryn struggles with which 18 of the 108 survivors will try to reach Hoth via escape pod. The pods make it, and Farr waits aboard for the inevitable Imperial attack. The Mist Hunter gets there first. Zuckuss will only take 26 Rebels, the ones with the highest price on their heads; Farr wants to take them all. Furious, 4-LOM takes Farr and a few Rebels hostage. However, Zuckuss talks their way out of trouble and picks up 90 to take to Darlyn Boda. In return for their help, 2-1B offers Zuckuss a chance to regenerate his lungs, healing his old injury. After stopping at Darlyn Boda (where 4-LOM buys a jewel that could help heal Zuckuss), they make their way to the Rebel rendezvous at the galactic rim. 4-LOM decides, to stop the Empire coming after them, to take Luke and Leia prisoner. Zuckuss, to his surprise, refuses to go along. They later attend Toryn Farrís promotion to commander. Over the next few days, the Mist Hunter is refitted, as the two bounty hunters become full-time Rebels. Zuckuss is now fully healed, and 4-LOM does seem to be getting better at intuition.

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