Synopsis: This issue picks up as Han and Chewie blast away from Aduba-3. Everything is smooth sailing until they run into an old friend, the man that rocks a unitard like no other – Crimson Jack. Jack and his band of space pirates apprehend Han and Chewie, however, they aren’t the only ones Jack has captured. He has managed to also kidnap Princess Leia as she was out looking for Luke Skywalker and holds her for ransom. How will our heroes get out of this one?

Meanwhile Luke and the droids have crashed in an ocean on a planet in the Drexel system. And if that wasn’t bad enough, now he has to battle a sea beast if he wants to make it to the next issue.
