SYNOPSIS
Chasing the escaped assassin droid IG-88 in his special cruiser, Olag Greck demands his pilot, Forno, make haste. He threatens to melt the droid and its apparent accomplices, R2-D2 and C-3PO, into slag.

IG-88 tries to lose the pursuit ship in the canyons of Kalarba's moon, Indobok. Greck's ship is too large to follow and must slow down, allowing the other ship to pull ahead.

Rounding a bend, IG-88 blasts a rock arch, which crashes down on Greck's ship pinning them. Some rocks also strike IG-88's ship, tilting it. Artoo and Threepio are thrown into an escape pod which Artoo launches towards the planet Kalarba. Greck and his crew stand defeated, outwitted by a machine.

On Kalarba, the Pitareeze family enjoys a nice picnic by a lake when the droids escape pod crashes into the water, showering the group. Introductions are made and Baron Pitareeze notes how handy Artoo would be around his factory and Meg tells Threepio he would be useful at their travel guide business. Threepio readily agrees, glad to be on firm ground. Young Nak, trips him and he falls flat on his photoreceptors, to which Artoo lets him know, they may have been safer with IG-88.
