A ship of Rebel troops lands on an Imperial-inhabited planet and a battle breaks out. When the Rebels knock over the Imperial flag, the two sides fight to plant their respective flags and claim the land. After a battle outside an Imperial base, the troops on both sides begin to flee as a missile approaches the planet and destroys the buildings in an explosion.
