Yeager wakes Kaz up painfully early, supposedly for a salvage mission (though Tam notes that there isn’t a salvage mission on the itinerary). But the real mission is very different: an upper-atmosphere rendezvous with Poe Dameron, who has brought a second X-Wing for Kaz to fly. En route to a nearby asteroid field, they discuss the intelligence Kaz has gathered on the Colossus station until they receive a distress call from a ship inside the field. They discover a cargo freighter that has recently been raided by pirates, with one pirate ship still docked; neither ship is in very good shape. Once aboard, Poe and Kaz discover that there was some kind of live cargo, and it has broken out…and begun eating pirates and crew indiscriminately. They find a survivor who has hidden inside a cargo container and race to get her off the ship and back to the Colossus before they become the next meal. But who is Synara San?
Cast: Christopher Sean (Kazuda Xiono), Scott Lawrence (Jarek Yeager), Suzie McGrath (Tam Ryvora), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Dave Filoni (Kowakians), David Acord (Kowakians), Gary Anthony Williams (Kragan Gorr), Jonathan Lipow (Pirate #2), Matthew Wood (Kowakians), Nazneen Contractor (Synara San), Stephen Stanton (Pirate #1)
Notes: Among the very unpleasant possibilities of what the escaped live cargo could be, Poe lists Rathtars (The Force Awakens) and Gundarks (The Empire Strikes Back). He’s quite unprepared for a ship full of Kowakian monkey-lizards, a creature that has been seen before in Star Wars lore (in the form of Return Of The Jedi‘s Salacious Crumb).
