"Answer a call from local “business man” Hondo Ohnaka to deliver hard-to-find items to a particular clientele aboard a ship in his employ, the famous Millennium Falcon.

"After your flight, join up with the Resistance on a secret mission that may find you trapped deep inside the belly of an imposing First Order Star Destroyer."
