So remember when Han and the boys knock out the scanning crew on the Millennium Falcon, and then shoot the two Stormtroopers for thier armour? So what did they do with the four presumably dead bodies.... just fly around for the rest of the movie with thier corpses banging around in the cargo hold?

- the scanning crew got bonked on the head and knocked out cold. they dropped the trunk full of scanning equipment. *thud*
- the troopers went up the ramp with their guns drawn.
- the troopers got bonked on the head and knocked out cold. they accidentally discharged their weapons when they were jumped by Han and Luke. *pew pew*
--> all four bodies went into the secret cargo hold. by the time they woke up, there was already an ongoing manhunt for Our Heroes. they hit the cafeteria on the way to the sick bay.

Or....

- the troopers bonked their heads on low doorways onboard the Falcon and knocked themselves out cold, accidentally discharging their weapons. *pew pew*

Maybe after finding the droids up in the control room the stormtroopers went down and found them and took them to the infirmary/morgue.

Maybe the sequels will answer this question when Han starts to notice a smell coming from the secret cargo holds he hasn't used since joining the rebellion?

In all seriousness, they seem to have been knocked out, with the Stormtroopers reflexively/accidentally firing as they're attacked. The four of them were then probably put in the smuggling holds. After this point we have two options for them:

1. Either they're found by the other Imperials and set free, whereupon they get killed later due to a bad case of exploding Death Star. Which sucks for them.

or

2. They're not found, and are still aboard when the Falcon takes off, whereupon they end up as prisoners on Yavin.

Are you telling me there aren't 5 different EU stories explaining the fate of these troopers with the tracker. (All 5 versions of course vastly contradict each other.)

Seriously those we will find out one of the troopers latter becomes Max von Sydow in episode 7

I just remembered, I believe the novelization says they got found by the Stormtroopers seen guarding the Falcon when the good guys return to the hangar later.

Just found this; "The two crewmen and the stormtroopers were later found unconscious aboard the Falcon shortly after a firefight had broken out in Detention Block AA-23. The crewmen were taken to an infirmary and later perished in the destruction of the Death Star."
