On the water world of Drexel II, Governor Quarg has used his sonic jammer to cause the Millennium Falcon to crash into the water near his giant city-ship. Han Solo is believed dead, while Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and the droids are imprisoned inside of Quarg's galleon. Quarg has simultaneously been waging a war against the Dragon Lords who even now attack his ship, riding atop giant sea serpents.
Quarg has now turned his sonic jammer towards an even greater prize - a stolen Imperial cruiser locked in Drexel's orbit. The pirate, Crimson Jack and his first mate, Jolli attempt to break free of their ship's systems-lock, but find that they are trapped.
Han meanwhile, is not dead at all. The Dragon Lords have rescued him and have taken him to a secret underground cave. The leader of the Dragon Lords tells Han that Quarg's sonic jammer is driving the sea serpents mad and slowly killing them. Han agrees to help them if they agree to help him in return by salvaging the Millennium Falcon.
Governor Quarg has found Princess Leia hiding within the Millennium Falcon and chases her back onto the city-ship. Chewbacca goes berserk (believing that Han is dead) and breaks free of the prison. Luke has been forced into doing Quarg's dirty work until he reunites with Han who explains to him what the sonic jammer is actually doing to the dragons. Luke rescues Leia and kills Quarg just as Han uses the Falcon's weaponry to destroy the city-ship.
