The crew of the Millennium Falcon has separated while on the gambler's paradise called The Wheel. As C-3PO and R2-D2 transport the unconscious Luke Skywalker to the Wheel's medical center, Senator Simon Greyshade, the administrator of The Wheel, arranges for Princess Leia to be taken to his quarters. Meanwhile, Chewbacca finds himself in the Crimson Casino on the upper level of The Wheel, where he is captured by members of the Wheel Security Force and forced to participate in The Big Game. Unbeknownst to Han Solo, he is also a participant in The Big Game, unaware that Chewbacca is involved in the same gladiatorial event. All of this has been orchestrated by Greyshade, who is striking a deal with Imperial Commander Strom to eliminate all the Rebels, on the condition that Leia remains with Greyshade on The Wheel.
