After escaping Sal Sagev, the group flew to Dantooine in search of an alternate contact point for the Rebel Alliance. Finding an Imperial reconaissance in force over the planet, the crew diverted to nearby Tatooine in the hopes of getting further info from one of Acasha's Rebel contacts there.
While said contact was good for fairly little intel, a few other issues were taken care of. Taka checked in on the bounty hunter boards to discover just how heavily interested Tatooine's hunters were in the "recovery" of the datapad on Sal Sagev, suggesting a huge payout. The ship's passenger and the "sanitized" datapad were both handed off for delivery to some Wookiee and his Corellian buddy piloting a sad but apparently spaceworthy pile of garbage.
Following the advice of the Rebel contact, the crew then headed for Alderaan… which was no longer present in its system. Amid the rocky debris and ship wreckage that remained in its place, the crew boarded a dead and ventilated ship to investigate what had caused the cataclysm. After an awkward encounter with the assassin droid IG-82 disguised as a protocol droid, the crew salvaged ship data revealing an attack on the system from a massive battle Imperial battle station.
Heading from there to the Rebel base on Yavin IV, the crew was fully inducted into the Rebel Alliance and given a few key pieces of info: the Senate had been dissolved by order of the Emperor, Princess Leia has been taken captured, and the Rebels on Yavin IV were already planning to evacuate. Short on personnel and pressed for time, General Dodonna entrusted with the crew an urgent mission: to take on the list from the datapad, recruiting and recovering as many of the names on the list as possible. The mission's first stop would naturally be Coruscant, home of the now-dissolved Senate and a number of presumably inactive but still connected senators.
