Storyline

The droids' new master, Mungo Baobab, plans to open up a new trade route to the Roon system and save his father's Merchant Fleet from financial ruin. While trailing the Rainbow comets over the planet Manga, his ship, Caravel, is hijacked by a tractor beam from the new Ambu light-station in the Cloak of Sith. Once aboard the station, Governor Koong mistakes Mungo for an emissary from Imperial Admiral Screed. Koong had invited the Admiral to take a look at his illegal ware, including Mupple delicacies, the valuable explosive Nurgon 14 and the illusive Roonstones. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

When the pirates prepare to re-program C-3PO, they ask him if he has any preference as to his new name. C-3PO replies "Well, I've always been partial to Anthon- oh dear, what I am saying?", a reference to Anthony Daniels, who plays C-3PO in the Star Wars films and this cartoon. See more »

Goofs

When Governor Koong first appears, as a hologram, he has five fingers on each hand. But after Admiral Screed has opened Koong's gift, the Governor now has four fingers on each hand. See more »

Quotes

Admiral Screed: No need to search him. He's Mungo Baobab of the Baobab Merchant Company. The Emperor has been looking for him for some time.
Governor Koong: Heh heh, just a case of mistaken identity, Admiral. Please except this Babblebob fellow as a... shall we say, servant of the Empire?
Admiral Screed: Thrown him in that cage.
