DEATH PROBE

The Alliance is scattered after Hoth. A lone Corellian gunship is attacked by an larger, more armoured version of the Imperial probe droid, which single-handedly slaughters the whole crew and takes control of the ship. The probe was created by Admiral Damon Krell, who is monitoring Probe 13-K's performance. Luke is out on X-Wing patrol, slowly testing out his new hand and mulling over Vader's revelation. Did Ben really lie to him? The gunship roars by, and blasts the X-Wing apart. Luke survives the explosion with the Force, as does Artoo. Using the droid's magnetising legs to propel themselves to the gunship, Luke cuts a way in with a lightsaber to find the ship's repair droids all out to kill him. Artoo figures out that something has overridden the ship's computer. They find the probe, and learn that it has rigged the ship's reactor to blow – and steered it towards the Rebel fleet. Luke tries to distract the probe by revealing his identity to it – but the plan backfires when the probe simply stuns him. It does, however, steer away from the fleet and rush towards Vader's location to give the young man to him. Luke comes to and damages several ship circuits, then bails out in a lifepod with Artoo. The gunship makes its way to Krell's ship, the probe overloaded between Krell's orders and Vader's. Reactor still overloading, the gunship takes Krell's Star Destroyer with it. Luke and Artoo are picked up by the fleet . . . .

THE DREAMS OF CODY SUNN-CHILDE!

Lando and Chewbacca are en route to Tatooine when their hyperdrive blows – and blasts them into an extra-dimensional void with a space city on a giant chunk of rock. Crash-landing in a jungle area just outside the city, they are attacked by a reptilian monster – which gets picked off mentally by a legend from the distant past – an alien hero and early rebel (who Lando admired as a boy) named Cody Sunn-Childe. Cody leads them to the city, and offers to let them stay as long as they do not cause trouble. Meanwhile, a small Imperial fleet led by the female Captain Plikk discovers the tear in space … Cody explains that he tired of fighting, and as he discovered a growing psychic power within himself, he used it to create the extra-dimensional area from his dreams as a sanctuary. Lando is disgusted at what he sees as cowardice from his idol, and decides to leave. Cody reluctantly repairs the 'Millennium Falcon' and agrees to let him leave. At that moment, Plikk's fleet attacks. Lando agrees to defend the city, and tells Cody he no longer has a choice – fight or die. He starts to unleash his inner demons in solid form to attack the Star Destroyer's – then discovers to his horror that he is enjoying the violence again. Realising that "unless tested by adversity, an example has no meaning", he lets the fleet wipe him and his city out. With the fleet's energy drained, a grief-stricken Lando leaves them in the closing dimensional rift to rot . . . .
