In the underground resistance base on Garos IV, Wink Tasion listens in on Imperial scouts at the mining center south of Ariana. The Imperials have been setting up a defence perimeter around the mines. Alex Winger listens in to this, then learns from Dair Haslip and Magir Paca that another 2,000 troops is being sent to Garos. Where is all the ore going, they wonder. The mine is nearly impenetrable now, what can the resistance do? In addition, even worse, the Imperials are starting to find the resistance's weapons' caches. Alex decides she and Dair will have a dinner date at her father's mansion (to check out the new security provisions there) before trying to rescue the remaining weapons. They take a walk before dinner that night, forced to act romantic with the scout troops watching them. After dinner that night, Alex sneaks out of the mansion to move a Plex missile launcher less than a kilometre from the mansion. She gets intercepted by a scout, and has to fast-talk her way back to the mansion.
The resistance finally gets the break they need: a chance to stop the Imperials from finishing their new sensor setup at the mines. Alex joins the attacking group. Two AT-STs are in the convoy, and one is taken out, but the other one takes out Alex's friend Cardy. Alex personally blows up the second one. The convoy is destroyed, and another small victory is won. On her way home, Alex receives another of those strange visions - and a distant voice saying, "
The Force will be with you..."

This story occurs approximately 7 years after the Battle of Yavin.
