Adamkin Skywalker, a simple postman working in Londo City on the planet Torontooine, meets his friends in the popular Moss Eel Cantina for some drinks.  The topic of conversation is the forthcoming arranged marriage of Torontooine's Princess Mariadala to the Empire's most evil warlord, Darth McMaul.

Adamkin is less than pleased at the thought of the marriage, and expresses his opinions - to the displeasure of a couple of stormtroopers who just happen to overhear him.  Their intervention starts a chain of events which will transform not only Adamkin's life, but the course of history itself . . .
