Event
Skywalker and Kenobi made their way to the spaceport settlement of Mos Eisley. Imperial forces had already arrived in the city to inspect the area for the droids. Skywalker's landspeeder, which carried the group, was stopped and the group was questioned about the droids they were carrying. In order to avoid further questioning, Kenobi used a mind trick to convince the soldiers that R2-D2 and C-3PO were not the droids they were looking for. This allowed the group to temporarily evade Imperial suspicions and make their way further into Mos Eisley.
To find a charter, Kenobi and Skywalker made their way into Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina, while the droids were forced to wait outside - the establishment had a rule about not serving droids, and the two humans didn't want to cause any trouble or draw any further suspicion. However this attempt to blend appeared to back fire as it only made them seem more suspicious. Due to being forced to wait outside R2 and 3PO were left in the open. In order to avoid questioning and potential capture from the stormtroopers, the droids hid inside a building and narrowly escaped attention from stormtroopers who were inspecting the area. Kenobi, meanwhile, met Chewbacca, the first mate and co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon. The Wookiee introduced the Jedi Master and Skywalker to the freighter's captain, Han Solo, and Kenobi questioned Solo as to whether the Falcon would be a suitable vessel to make it to Alderaan without Imperial detection. Kenobi negotiated for Solo to bring them to Alderaan for a large sum of money. With their passage to Alderaan secured, Skywalker sold his speeder in order to make enough money for the initial payment. They soon reunited with the droids and discussed their plan to meet Solo at the Falcon. Their conversation was overheard by Garindan, an informant working for the Empire, who told a group of stormtroopers where Skywalker and Kenobi were headed. Hoping to capture the group before their escape, the troopers made their way towards the bay.
The group met Solo in Docking Bay 94 and began boarding the Millennium Falcon. As they prepared to leave, the stormtroopers swarmed into the bay and fired on the group and the ship. Solo fired back before boarding, and he ordered Chewbacca to take off immediately. The Falcon left the bay and quickly sped out of Mos Eisley and off of the planet. Once in orbit, the Falcon was pursued by three Imperial Star Destroyers. Solo and Chewbacca piloted the ship with evasive actions, while Solo plotted the course to Alderaan in the navigation computer. The ship took enemy fire as the course was calculated, but soon enough the ship made the jump into hyperspace, escaping Tatooine with a course set for Alderaan.
