"But I broke the code. They exiled me. This is what I deserve."
"Slow down, drama queen. You might deserve this, but I don't. We got to get out of here."
Yondu Udonta and Rocket Raccoon[src]

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.

Background

"No matter how many times Quill betrays you, you protect him like none of the rest of us matter. I'm the one what sticks up for ya."
"Take it easy, Kraglin."
"Damn straight, lad. He's gone soft. Suppose it's time for a change in leadership."
Kraglin Obfonteri, Tullk and Taserface[src]

Yondu Udonta's Yaka Arrow Controller is shot off his head

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.[2]

Yondu, Rocket, and Baby Groot break out of their cell

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.

The three walked across a catwalk where Yondu used the arrow to kill an extremely large number of Ravagers loyal to Taserface, literally causing it to rain the corpses of the dead Ravagers.

Yondu Udonta and Rocket Raccoon kill numerous Ravagers

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.[2]

Aftermath

"I'm sending you the coordinates for Yondu's ship! I only ask one thing in return, that your High Priestess tell him the name of the man who sentenced him to death: Taserface!"
―Taserface to the Sovereign Chambermaid[src]
