Kaz, Torra, Freya, CB-23, Kel and Eila travel to a trading outpost on the forested planet of Ashas Ree to gather supplies. However, they find that the settlement has been abandoned due to the excavation of an ancient Sith temple. While exploring the Sith temple, Kaz is trapped in a chamber with an archaeologist named Mika Grey, who wants to prevent the First Order from getting hold of a Sith relic. Working with Kel, Eila, and CB-23, they manage to escape a giant grinding machine. After Mika obtains the relic, the group discover that First Order raiders led by Raith have captured Torra and Freya. Though the First Order captures Kaz, Kel, Eila and CB-23, Mika throws the Sith relic, unleashing a powerful wave of energy that vaporizes the First Order raiders, destroying the relic but denying it to the First Order. Mika agrees to accompany Kaz and his party back to the Colossus, striking a friendship with the Force-sensitive Eila.
