When Leia returned to Challon Torgas finally made his move, killing Gimlet. Giles killed Torgas but then told Leia he'd been hired by Emir to take over Torgas' contract. Giles tried to kill Leia but she shot him first. Giles died pleased at how well Leia had learned from him. Thus, Leia finishes telling her story to Luke and the droids.
In the year 3000 a faster than light spaceship is developed to take man to the very end of the galaxy. Since the scientists think the chances of returning are slim, they choose a pilot with an unhappy life who doesn't care if he can return as long as he learns the universe’s secrets. He makes it all the way to the end and the ship actually does return to Earth, but when they bring out the pilot all he can repeat over and over is "I know!" The scientists realize they must abandon their quest since the pilot's mind has snapped with his epiphany, but observe that he has finally gained happiness.
