Between the heroes and their ship are a squad of Imperial Stormtroopers, two pairs of Heavy Stormtroopers with heavy E-Web blaster cannons, and a mighty AT-AT Walker looming over their ship.
The heroes’ plan is simple: Riddick uses the Force to sneak into their ship, to start powering it up and get it ready to blast off. Tracer will sneak up and get into position to take out the Stormtroopers blocking their path, while Valdor and the Droid of Doom use their speeder as a battering ram, to knock the troopers in front of the ship out of the way, allowing everyone to run aboard the Heart of Alderaan; then all they have to do is get off planet and escape into space.
The first part of the plan is easy: Riddick cloaks himself, levitates over the wall, then phases through the hull of their ship. Once inside he hurries to the cockpit and starts the slow power build-up; estimating it will take 10 minutes to fully power the ship, thereby allowing the shields and weapons to be powered-up too. If he can manage it, he might be able to speed it up, but there is a risk that a power-surge will blow up a system or two.
As the others move the speeder into position, Tracer starts to sneak across, but barely gets halfway before he is spotted: and the fight begins!
The Droid of Doom moves up into cover and opens fire, wounding one of the heavy stormtroopers; and Tracer takes out the other pair with a series of well-placed rapid shots that kill one outright, and knocks the other trooper out cold.
Valdor aims the speeder at the squad, jumping out as the vehicle speeds towards them: but his aim is poor, and the speeder just crashes into the ground before them. Inside the ship, Riddick manages to bypass some of the safety features, lowering the powering-up time to only five minutes (still a lifetime away, with the speed of a fire-fight).
More blaster bolts fly, one burst from the remaining E-Web splashing around the droid and his master, wearing them down. One of the troopers is knocked back by the Jedi, as he Force Blasts him from the cockpit, and even the former Clone Trooper takes some heat as the squad spots him and starts opening fire with bursts of blaster bolts.
As the troopers continue to slowly wear down the heroes outside, they return fire, and Tracer takes out a Stormtrooper. Then the mighty AT-AT joins in, trying to catch the heroes in its sights: cannons roar but miss for the most part; some of the blast washes over Tracer but he shrugs off the worse. He takes out his pain and anger by shooting two more Troopers, killing both. The Droid of Doom injures a third, while Valdor runs from cover to cover, closing on the ship; and Riddick opens the main hatch, then returns to the cockpit to see if he can speed things up again.
Back outside, the Droid of Doom decides to try and take on the AT-AT, but although he hits, his wrist-blasters cannot penetrate its armour. Seeing this, Tracer runs over to the unmanned E-Web, wondering if he can use it to blast the walker. Riddick considers running out with a thermal detonator and his lightsabre, passing Valdor on his way into the ship; he runs to the cockpit, aiming to use his superior skill to get the ship up and running quickly.
The Droid of Doom moves into the ship and takes his place at the weapons, ready to let loose once they are powered-up. In the cockpit, Riddick (having decided that attacking an AT-AT would be foolish) helps Valdor with the ship; but rather than speed things up, they cause a surge of power that blows their communications suite. As the remaining hero outside, Tracer deals with the remaining troopers, leaving only the AT-AT to deal with. He decides that he can do better with his own carbine and well-aimed shots rather than with the E-Web heavy cannon. The AT-AT decides it is better to shoot the ship, and starts pounding energy bolts into its hull, eroding its armour bolt-by-bolt.
Back in their ship’s turret, while waiting for the power, the Droid of Doom takes time to recharge his shields; while in the cockpit Riddick and Valdor try again and manage to get the power routed so that it will take less than a minute to get the ship ready to fly; they call out to their friend to get in the ship. He acknowledges, while blasting away at the AT-AT (doing some damage, but not much more than burning away the paint) and dodging its return fire; the walker’s cannons continue hitting the ship too, burning holes into its unshielded hull. The heroes know that the ship can’t take much more before something vital is hit, or a lucky shot blows it up.
Needing help, Valdor calls in his droid, and the three of them work together to decrease the time: they manage to get it down to a little over ten seconds; enough time for Tracer to run to the ship and pile inside, slamming shut the hatch. He climbs into the turret.
The AT-AT further pours blaster bolts into their ship, coming close to damaging it too much to fly: but then the generator kicks in, the power floods through the systems, and with a roar the engines come on-line. Valdor activates the shields, the Droid of Doom powers-up the weapons, and Tracer manages to get a shot off, damaging the AT-AT, as Riddick lifts the ship out of the hanger and heads off into orbit.
Leaving the planet behind, communications down and the ship damaged, the heroes fly crazily through the traffic and burst out into space. As Imperial ships converge on them, they load the co-ordinates to rendezvous with the Resurgence and get ready to hit hypersapce; but before they do, thankfully, Valdor does a search for anything like tracking devices, and finds not only three (two carefully hidden) but also a bomb that he disarms.
They push the lever, and the Heart of Alderaan speeds off into hyperspace…
