Threepio noticed that Solo remained nearby and was not speaking at the moment, so he pressed on to provide listening material. “The Journal of the Whills was a confounding stew of reports from all around the galaxy, the outer rim, the Corporate Sector and beyond.”
Han crouched all the way to the deck and sat there, collapsed by boredom. Threepio took no hint, “This has been broken down is by focusing on dates of entry that match files thought lost with Alderaan ten standard years ago.”
