A Rebel fleet is attacked. A mysterious Imperial agent informs Darth Vader that Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker are on their way to Vorzyd 5 on a mission. Their mission is to meet with a high-ranking member of the planet's government in hopes to divert some of the planet's profits to the Rebellion or to world's harmed by the Empire. While on the planet Luke and Leia become prisoners and are helped by the droids. On their way to help Luke and Leia they encounter a group of juvenile delinquents called 'Freelies' and later learn that Luke and Leia were taken aboard a Hrakian starship. The droids need to enlist help to get themselves on board. Kidnapping and further encounters with the 'Freelies' are just part of the action in store on Gambler's World.
