Booster Terrik - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki (5901 words)
Terrik was sentenced to five years of hard labor in the Spice Mines of Kessel; not surprisingly, it would be the roughest five years of his life.
Terrik's joy at seeing his daughter again was blunted, however, by her companion—Corran Horn, the son of the man who'd sent him to Kessel.
Terrik's arrival, coupled with the recently-defected Sair Yonka's Freedom, and the Rogues' numerous freighters—loaded to the brim with the missiles and torpedoes that were not on Yag-prime station, made short work of Lusankya, and the battle was soon finished, with Isard apparently killed in the act of escaping.
