Idea for Star Wars Game

Fixed point in time.
I'm sooooo sorry.
The players are a spaceship crew who has had their freighter impounded on the peace-loving planet of Alderaan, and their captain is in the clink on charges of gun-running.  While commiserating at the local cantina, the players hear news of a moon-sized space station entering the Alderaan system.  It's announced on Alderaan Holo-Net that the gigantic space craft must be some kind of thoughtful peace offering from Emperor Palpatine - maybe even with goodies inside.  Like a piñata.

The incarcerated and suspicious captain is the only one who knows the key-codes to get the freighter running.  The Alderaanic Port Authority has the ship securely bay-clamped.  The players know they are being watched by:
  1. the Alderaanic Bureau of Investigation, because they think the players know where the hidden weapons are, and
  2. Happy the Hutt, covert leader of the shadowy Alderaanic Underground, because he thinks the players know where his shipment of hidden weapons is.
The players, however, do not know where the hidden weapons are.  Heck, they aren't even allowed to HAVE weapons on Alderaan.

As the gigantic space station enters Alderaan orbit and eclipses the sun, the players get a collective bad feeling about the whole situation.

Whatever will they do?

  2. If it's me, I sit back and wait for an opportunity to arise. Right now I have three hots and a cot. Out there, I could have to face an unarmed, pacifist police force and a fat slug. I'm better off where I am. I mean, what's the worst that could happen here?

    1. Um . . . it could rain building-destroying sized pieces of piñata candy maybe?
