C4-BL3 & Cheebs extricate themselves from the Thrifty’s clearing and get away clean, thanks to the droideka’s covering fire … and the sudden appearance of Kiarra’s ship overhead. Seeing the Imperial assault ship lift off, they double back for a quick parts raid on the Thrifty. Returning to the Porgatu, they finish hyperdrive repairs and start fixing the hatch & droideka while C4-BL3 deploys his droid listening array to stay on alert.
The Casisto crashes, suffering sudden drive failure. The probe droid finds the battle droids at the crater’s edge but is knocked out. Kantarra returns with R3-M3; the party is reunited. She gives an account of her adventures and of R3-M3’s sabotage of the light cruiser. The group finishes repairs as they watch a Star Destroyer arrive for rescue operations. After the Imperial ships all leave, the party successfully lifts off in their badly damaged shuttle and enters hyperspace for Kirian.
