The Hunt: The Trap

"The Trap" begins on the planet Wyorl, with smuggler Korb Stavren running for his life from an unknown predator. Apparently, Stavren found seventy-two cases of spice belonging to crime-lord Orlugar Ghom, and decided to make a profit off of it. Ghom isn't to pleased with this (crime- lords are SO finicky) and sends Boba Fett to handle the matter.

After handling it (What? You thought Stavren would get away? For shame!), Fett receives a transmission from Lord Vader, who needs help capturing some pesky smuggler ship. What was its name again? Oh, yeah... The Millenium Falcon.

After reading this story, I quickly called up Episode Two of The Hunt: that's how good it was. C. T. Pierson captures the flavor of STAR WARS almost perfectly. His characterization of Boba Fett is off in a couple of places, but for the most part, he is dead on. As for the rest of the characters, they were perfect. I could almost hear James Earl Jones speaking Vader's lines.

While this story doesn't fit with the established continuity, as seen in TALES OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS, it's still a darn good read. I encourage all Fans of Fett to check it out!
