Crawler Commandeers

Star Wars: RebelsFrom their new base of operations on Lothal’s southern hemisphere, Ezra, Kanan and the others spot one of the surface-smelting strip-mining crawlers that have laid waste to much of the planet’s natural surface. The Empire hires these vehicles and their minimal crews from the Mining Guild, and Ezra sees an opportunity to seize control of it. The crawler’s captain, however, isn’t going to let these “pirates” take his ship from him easily. Kanan discovers that the Rebels’ sometimes-ally Cikatro Vizago is among the slave laborers toiling in the bowels of the crawler, possibly giving him an edge in recruiting the rest of the slaves aboard. When the crawler’s captive captain summons the Empire to help, the not-even-remotely-combat-ready crawler may suddenly become the Rebels’ biggest liability.
