The Escape from the Eclector was an escape attempt and attack orchestrated by Yondu Udonta in order to exact retribution against the Ravagers who mutinied against him and took Rocket Raccoon and Groot prisoner.
Yondu Udonta and Rocket had been locked up by Taserface and his Ravagers, while Yondu's loyal men were killed by being dumped out the airlock of the Eclector. Groot was spared, but humiliated by Taserface's men.
Yondu and Rocket later tried to get Baby Groot to retrieve Yaka Arrow Controller, but Baby Groot could not understand, bringing useless items like Yondu's underwear and a large desk. Eventually, Kraglin Obfonteri assisted Groot in retrieving the controller and freed Yondu, who forgave Kraglin and told him to prepare the Quadrant for escape.
After attaching Yaka Arrow Controller to Yondu Udonta's head, Rocket Raccoon, Groot and Udonta broke out of their cell killing several Ravagers that betrayed Udonta. As more Ravagers arrived to halt them, Yondu swiftly managed to kill all of them with the Yaka Arrow.
Groot spotted Retch and got his revenge by throwing him to his death. The three then made their way to the control room where they killed the rest of the Ravagers using the advantage of the display screens until nearly all the Ravagers were dead. Yondu then spotted Taserface striding towards his location, and an unhappy Udonta sped up his Yaka Arrow until it ignited. Taserface managed to dodge the arrow, laughing, until Yondu's arrow hits some flammable materials and explodes, severely wounding Taserface. The three then joined Kraglin Obfonteri in the Quadrant and flew away from the Eclector as it exploded, while Taserface contacted the Sovereign to notify them of Yondu's location, wanting Yondu to know that Taserface would get the last laugh. Unfortunately for him, the Sovereign burst into laughter upon hearing his name, and he perished in the explosion shortly after the humiliating moment.
Yondu, Rocket, Baby Groot, and Kraglin then traveled to Ego's planet to help Quill, Gamora, and Drax to warn them about Ego's true intentions. They arrived at the planet after traveling seven hundred jumps, then helped them fight off against Ego, with the help of his assistant Mantis.
