Lando isn’t one to stick his neck out…unless there are credits to be had. So when oppressed workers in a droid junkyard need his help, they’d better hope their freedom is worth something to him. But one of their numbers is out to turn Lando over to his enemies – and there are plenty of those. Will a galaxy of bad guys finally get their due against the ultimate thorn in their side?
