< Passage To Alderaan >

<Mos Eisley>
After the victims are buried,Luke,Ben, and the droids proceed to Mos Eisley Spaceport, where they hope to find a pilot who will take them to Alderaan.Because Tatooine is so far from Imperial activity,Mos Eisley is a haven for smugglers, including the Corellian mercenary Han Solo.

<Hiring Han Solo>
Inside the Mos Eisley Cantina,Ben meets Han Solo and his wookie co-pilot, Chewbacca.The captain of the Millennium Falcon,Han Solo openly boasts the ship can outrun Imperial vessels.Luke bristles during the negotiations of Solo's fee to transport them to Alderaan,not knowing that Solo is as desperate for money as they are to leave Tatooine.
On a recent smuggling run,Solo dumped a spice shipment before Imperials boarded his ship.Although he avoided arrest,he now owes Jabba the Hutt for the lost spice.

<Jabba the Hutt>
While Chewbacca prepares the ship for launch,Solo finds himself at the wrong end of bounty hunter Greedo's blaster.According to Greedo,Jabba has placed a bounty on Solo's head,which he hopes to claim. Failing to notice Solo drawing his own blaster,a fatal blaster bolt puts paid to Greedo's plans.
After Greedo's demise,Jabba the Hutt and his henchmen surround Solo's vessel.The Hutt agrees to wait for the owed money plus an additional percentage,but threatens to reinstate the bounty if Solo fails to deliver.

<Fast Escape>
Following Solo's instructions,Luke,Ben,and the droids find the Millennium Falcon in Docking Bay 94.
