Luke meets a green (not purple) gnome after he crashed his X-wing in a Dagobah swamp. He soon learns that this is the Jedi Master he was instructed to find by Ben Kenobi. Meanwhile, Han has hidden the Millennium Falcon inside of an asteroid cave only to realize it was not a cave at all. Aboard his Star Destroyer, Darth Vader has assembled a motley crew of Bounty Hunters to find the Falcon with the distinct command - “No disintegrations!”
