Socorran smuggler Kaine Paulsen prepares for a dangerous job - sending supplies to an outpost on Thrugii, a mining colony that has proven extremely inimical to life. Even worse, the sector authorities have that planet completely embargoed. Despite the warnings of his old friend Karl Ancher, he resolves to make the trip with his son Drake. At Ancher's advice, Drake goes to see about helping a refugee Wookiee on the run calm down. Drake talks to a man named Seth, who explains that the Wookiee, Nikaede, is being transported to Mos Eisley to hide. Suddenly stormtroopers barge in, out to arrest the three. Seth protests - he was in the process of selling the Wookiee! Then Ancher steps into it, spinning a yarn about the boy losing his mother and buying the Wookiee as a companion. They all are herded down to Imperial customs as Kaine takes off. There, the group is met by Colonel Veesle and a platoon of stormtroopers. Veesle instantly recognises Ancher for the outlaw he is and throws the whole lot behind bars. They find a friend of Ancher's, Tait Ransom, also behind bars. They manage to break out and steal a gunship. A little later, Drake overhears Ransom telling Ancher that he had found Kaine's ship - in lots of pieces. Ransom gives Drake 1,000 credits and wishes him luck, then leaves. Drake decides there is something he has to do. Nikeade tags along, swearing a life debt to Drake. He travels to a dormant volcano where his father hid a freighter called the 'Steadfast'. He is surprised to find Ancher's most prized possession, a modified blaster, waiting for him in the ship. The 17-year old pirate decides his first job will be to finish what his father started - getting supplies to Thrugii.

This story occurs approximately 1 year after the Battle of Yavin.
