♪ ♪

- Okay, Neeku, nice and slow.

You've got it.
- Hey, what's going on?

Can I help?

- No offense, Kaz,
but installing

an acceleration compensator
requires a little more finesse

than, uh, erm, uh...


[tool whirring, clanking]
- Careful.

That casing gets cracked, might
as well toss the whole thing.

- Thanks, boss.
No pressure.

Okay, Neeku, we have to tighten
all three lockdowns at once.

- I only have two hands, Tam.

Although I often
wish I had a third.

- [sighs]

Okay, Kaz,
you can help.

- To the left on three.

One, two, three.

[machine rattles, whirs]

[machine shuts down]

- [concerned beep]

- Um, was that bottom left
or top left?

- Argh.
You broke it.

- Look, I'm really sorry, Tam.

I promise,
I'll buy you a new one.

- Argh.
They're expensive and rare.

And you're flat broke.

[playful music]

- I've been saving up.

I'll find another one.

Right now.

I swear.

- Aunt Z.

What do you got for
a roguish pilot on a budget?

- Have a water,

Eh-eh-eh, your budget
ran out two sips ago.

- [sighs]
- What?

You can't even afford
simple hydration?

Allow me to pay for your
remaining liquid, Kaz.

- Now there's a real friend
when you need one.

One with money.

- Thanks, Neeku.

But what am I gonna do
about Tam's compensator?

I mean, where am I gonna
get the money for that?

- 20,000 credits?

- [coughs]

- Hah. Some reward for a couple
of runaway bra-a-a-ats.

I'd love to score that bounty.

- Huh, they're probably
on the other side

of the galaxy
by now.

- For most people,
this wa-a-aterball

is the other side
of the galaxy.


- Give me another Jet Juice,
Aunt Z.

[foreboding music]

- That symbol,
have you ever seen it before?

- Hmm.
I have not.

- If I could find those kids,

that reward would
change everything.

- But, Kaz, you are not
a bounty hunter.

I have seen bounty hunters,

and you are definitely
not one of them.

- For that kind of money I am.

It's a win-win situation,

I make a ton of credits,
get Tam's part fixed,

and help these kids.
What could go wrong?

- I told you, no refills.
One bowl only.

One bowl.

I don't make this slop
for free.

- Aw, I don't get paid
until next week.

Come on,
have a heart.

[suspenseful orchestral music]

- One bowl only.

If you can't pay for it,
I'll eat it myself.

Maybe we'll get lucky.

- Well, the odds
of finding those children here

are akin to winning
the Platform Lottery.

Neeku, we need

Although, they only have

you're gonna introduce us?

- Friends, meet Kaz.

He is looking for two children
who will bring him

a great deal of money.

- Lookout?
They barely move.


Is that one even still alive?

Shellfolk can slow down

new mechanic?

The pilot who
challenged my daughter.

- Uh, yeah.

That was a big mistake.

- I hear you were seen
in the marketplace

with the two missing children.

The ones with the rather
large price on their heads.

- Yes, sir.

[droid whirs and clanks]

I accidentally took this
from one of them.

[ominous musical flourish]

So, uh, why are they
on the run, anyway?

- Mercenaries don't usually
ask questions.

They just want to be paid.

- I'm...I'm no mercenary.

- Then let me ask you
a question.

Did you ever think who would
place a bounty that large

on two missing children,
or why?

- No, I guess I didn't.

I just wanted
to help them get home.

- I'm sure you did.

We'll let you know
if we find them.

- Captain Doza,
this is unexpected.

Don't tell me you
have considered

the First Order's
offer and decided to accept?

- I have decided,
in the interest

of improving
our relationship,

that I will give you
some information

that I know you desire.

- I'm intrigued.

- First, tell me why
the First Order would place

such a large bounty
on a pair of missing children.

- Ah, yes, they are children
of a high ranking family

within the First Order,
and a wealthy one at that.

They would be quite grateful
if you knew the whereabouts

of these missing members
of their family.

- They were spotted here,
on my platform,

within the last hour.
- How wonderful.

I will dispatch my agents
to retrieve them.

- These children were
wearing this symbol.

It doesn't strike me as
an insignia of the First Order.

- As I said, they are members
of a high ranking family.

Not military.
- I see.

- The First Order is grateful

for this display of loyalty,

- Then when your agents
are here,

be sure to remind them
that this is my station.

And in the interest of
our future relations,

they need to abide by my law.

- I'll make sure
to remind them.

- [grunts]
Of course it hurts.

Pretty sure it's broken.

I hate this place, Kel.

I wanna go back to Tehar.

There's nothing there anymore.
We're safe here.

For now.

should mention that.

I was just gonna get
