WIKIPEDIA SUMMARY:
Nineteen-year-old Han Solo, a skilled swoop pilot, escapes his life of petty thievery under crime lord Garris Shrike and acquires transport to the exotic planet Ylesia, the site of a fanatical religious colony. Using a false identity, he takes a job as a pilot. He discovers that the religious colony is merely a front to hide the illegal slave trade on the planet, and helps one of the slaves, Pilgrim 921 or Bria Tharen, to escape. Before they leave the planet, he steals a number of valuable artifacts from the high priest's collection, intending to sell them for profit. He falls in love with Bria, but realizes that, due to his shady past, he will never be accepted by Bria's aristocratic parents. Bria goes with him to Coruscant, wanting him to join the Imperial Academy. Han is unable to retrieve money from the sale of the stolen goods, however, and Bria leaves him, knowing he will not be able to support her. Han, although broken-hearted, has his retinal patterns changed and takes on his own identity, deciding to follow her wishes and join the Academy. Han is fully accepted by the Academy, however his past catches up with him with Garris Shrike. Shrike is killed by a bounty hunter, who in turn is killed by Han. He disguises himself as the bounty hunter, and goes off two days later to Carida, the Imperial military training world.
