Padawan Ahsoka Tano has been sent on a mission to deliver a data-file of important intelligence information to the Republic base on Maarka by her master, Anakin Skywalker. But Ahsoka believes that such a mission is not suitable for a Jedi Knight in training. As she enters an asteroid field close to Maarka, she discovers a squadron of Separatist vulture droids patrolling the asteroids. Realising that droids were scouting for a possible sneak attack on Maarla, Ahsoka knows she must get past the squadron and warn the Republic base on Maarka.
However, her plan to sneak past the droid fighters goes awry when a lone droid starfighter discovers her position and attacks her. Although she is successful in destroying the lone droid, the rest of the squadron has been alerted to her presence and begin to target her. It takes all of Ahsoka's piloting skills to evade the droids but see isn't quick enough to prevent the destruction of her starfighter's starboard cannon and R2-D2 cannot repair it.
Realising that the base on Maarka is dependent on her actions, Ahsoka reaches into the Force and to Yoda's teachings to find her course of action. Focusing her mind and with the remaining droid starfighters in close pursuit, the young Padawan sends her starfighter into a tight barrel roll while simultaneously using the Force to reach out and send an asteroid into a collision course with the pursuing droid starfighters. The shifting asteroid hits the lead droid starfighter sending it careering into the path of the rest of its squadron. All the droid starfighters crash into each other destroying the whole squadron.
After successfully delivering the data-file and warning the base on Maarka, Ahsoka returns to the Resolute and her master Anakin Skywalker who has been concerned about the length of time Ahsoka had been away. Ahsoka assures her master that mission to Maarka was more than just a 'milk run'.

This story occurs between 22 and 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
