After all, for a guy who broke into an Imperial cell block and helped destroy the Death Star, the assignment sounds simple enough.

A pirate plans to sell a cache of stolen secrets that the Empire would destroy entire worlds to protectincluding the planet where Leia is currently meeting with rebel sympathizers. Scarlet wants to track down the thief and steal the bounty herself, and Han has no choice but to go along if hes to keep everyone involved from getting themselves killed.
