Synopsis:
As the battle on Hoth rages between Rebel and Imperial forces, Luke attempts to set tow cables around the legs of an approaching walker. He loses his gunner on the attack run and his engines get hit by incoming fire. The ship crashes right in the path of the oncoming walker. Luke stares death in the face as the foot of the walker looms just a few feet from his head.
