Episode VI

Having informed Jabba of Teemo’s disloyalty to the Hutt Clan, the crew finds themselves in the favor of the powerful crime lord (for the time being). 

Impressed with their ingenuity and questionable scruples, Jabba offers them a job in exchange for a ship for their personal use. The task is simple: clean up any evidence of Teemo’s dealings with the Empire.

The group heads back to Ryloth for some legwork on their new ship, the Crippled Crab.  Once on Ryloth, the crew gets cracking investigating all the leads.  It didn't take long for them to find who they were looking for, an Lieutenant in charge of the Imperial garrison.

After some shuffling around, the group gets a chance to talk to the Imperial officer.  After being assured that the Hutts had effectively changed management and everyone can keep making credits doing what they've been doing, [Ryloth Officer] is happy to become Jabba's asset.  Likewise, Bib Fortuna is happy to hear of the turn of events and informs the Hutt that his influence has grown.  The group continues to follow the trail of Teemo's dealings and root out his agents for Jabba.

Episode VII

Under orders from Jabba, the crew continues with their investigation into Teemo’s dealings with the Empire and have discovered he used corrupt officials to bring Imperial forces down on enemies and competitors.

Aboard their newly acquired ship, the Crippled Crab, they now head back to Geonosis to try and flush out whomever was pulling strings for Teemo there...

Once on Geonosis, the group runs into a bit of an issue with the Imperials.  Unlike on Ryloth, Lt. Bragden Levdu is not so eager to hear about the Hutt's change in management.  After a tense, standoffish meeting inside the facility, Levdu meets the group outside the compound and chastises them for their boldness.

Everything seems cleared up with the Lieutenant, and all is fine until a stormtrooper unit runs the group down.  Blasters ring out in the Geonosis night, and the troopers go down.  Interrogating the last trooper reveals that Lt. Levdu is the one that sent them...and Mayhem, Inc. vows revenge.

Episode VIII

Having identified the Imperial officer, Lieutenant Breglan Levdu, that was on the take from Teemo, the crew informs him that Jabba is now in charge and wants operations to continue as they were.

But Levdu seems to have other plans. After surviving an ambush by Stormtroopers in the streets of Knossa, the crew vows revenge on the corrupt officer.

Things become risky on Geonosis for Mayhem, Inc.  So, a ridiculous plan is concocted after consulting with Bib Fortuna on Tatooine to see how Jabba wants to proceed.  The Imperial's office won't protect him, it is decided.

If the group can't interrogate him satisfactorily, he is to be captured.  If he can't be captured, he is to be killed.  Deliberations lean toward picking him up and taking him back to Tatooine, but the ship is threatened in the hangar by Imperial authorities and the group has to race to get it out of the spaceport.

A pair of TIE fighters immediately gave chase, so a hasty and daring (insane) plan is concocted.  X turned the ship back toward the spaceport, and B3T-5Y manned the guns.  After Modo masked the ships signatures, he and Rokka ran to the hold where the speeders were stationed.  There, they prepared for a quick disembarkation over the city.

The TIE fighters managed to damage the ship, but both went down before the ship got back to the spaceport.  Holding the ship steady, B3T-5Y loosed a salvo with the ship's cannons directly at the offices the spaceport where Levdu was stationed.  Hopefully, he'd be dead in that blast, as that part of the building was destroyed entirely.

As the destruction occurred, Modo and Rokka stole out of the hold into the Geonosian city.  There, they would blend in with the populace and make sure Levdu was dead, or else plot to either capture or kill him.  At that point, X and B3T-5Y have to maneuver the ship out of the city.  A pair of TIE fighters begin to chase after them, but X knows that Geonosis is covered with tiny hills and valleys that will make it fairly easy to lose the Imperials.  The objective is clear - make the Imperials realize that this is still Hutt space, whether or not star destroyers hang in the sky above.
