On Garos IV, freedom fighter Alex Winger has picked up clues of a secret Imperial research facility and learned a cohort of hers, scientist Carl Barzon, has been taken prisoner there. She feels strangely drawn to handle this situation herself, perhaps something to do with all those weird daydreams she is been having lately. She stows away with a New Republic group that is sending a computer virus to that facility (that Page's Commandos have already set bombs up in). They travel to the facility on Sarahwiee. Alex has only three hours to get Barzon out before they set off again. 
With the aid of New Republic commando Gil Crossear, she gets Barzon out. However, when Carl mentions private notes in his lab, Alex parts company with them and goes after the notes, only to run right into the man of her visions: Luke Skywalker. He has had the same visions as her. Fighting their way past stormtroopers, Luke and Alex take the notes and start out of the facility, climbing down a treacherous mountainside and faking some stormtroopers out with a kiss. They make their way back to the New Republic group's ship and sets off as the facility explodes. She realises that she is Force sensitive, and her destiny is somehow intertwined with Luke's.

This story occurs approximately 10 years after the Battle of Yavin.
