After a raid on an Imperial supply yard, the small band of
rebels are in desperate need of spare parts for the Ghost.
Hera takes the ship and its crew to Osisis Station in the Regani
sector where she hopes to trade for the necessary parts
as she has dealt previously with its owner, Galus Vez.
However, Vez has been visited by Imperials inspectors
and is supposed to report sightings of the Ghost and its
crew immediately to the Empire. But Vez is also a
businessman and is willing to supply the required parts
on condition that Hera can beat him in a race around
Fool's Run, a space race through an asteroid field,
otherwise he will hand them all over to the Imperials.
With little choice Hera accepts Vez's challenge and so
the pair begin their race: Hera piloting the Ghost, Vez
his own spaceship. It doesn't take long for Vez to begin
cheating when Hera takes an early lead. He commands
rigged asteroids to veer into Hera's path. Although she
avoids a direct collision, the Ghost suffers
yet more damage and it allows Vez to take the lead.
Watching from the space station Kanan and Ezra help Hera
by using the Force to guide some asteroids into Vez's
path. With some unorthodox help from Chopper, Hera is
able to retake the lead and wins the race.
he lost Vez is ready to renege on his original agreement
and he and his hired help draw their blasters on the
rebels. But Kanan has prepared for this enventuality and
remotely sets off prepared charges that give himself and
his team a sufficiently large distraction to overpower
the station's crew.
Kanan renegotiates the deal with
Vez and the Ghost departs with the parts
required for the repairs. Fearing Imperial repercussions
Vez orders all camera footage altered and records erased
of any mention of the Ghost's visit. However,
while Vez may have cleaned his computerised records,
Sabine has left her own individual calling card on the
space station's exterior...
