When R2D2 goes missing in action during a skirmish in an asteroid belt Anakin insists on mounting a rescue mission. Although Obi-Wan is against wasting time on a droid, Anakin explains the R2's memory has never been wiped and thus carries all of the Republic's tactics and base locations. Meanwhile, the plucky Atromech has been picked up by Trandoshan scavenger Gha Nachkt in his freighter, Vulture's Claw. Nachkt plans to sell the droid to the highest bidder. Written by
