Podcast Stardust #218: Rebels – Wings of the Master – 0207

by Podcast Stardust

Hera recruits a new ally to help break an Imperial blockade and acquires a new, deadly starfighter for the Rebellion in the process.

When a relief mission to Ibaar is repelled by the Empire, Rex suggests they meet with Quarrie, an engineer with a new prototype starfighter that might possibly change the tide of the war. Hera is reluctant to make the trip, but Kanan convinces her to do so. During her mission, Hera shares why she started flying in the first place and the sacrifices she has made to join the Rebellion.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • The history of the B-Wing,
  • Some Easter eggs that surround the B-Wing in this episode,
  • Hera’s background and motivation for becoming a pilot,
  • Kanan’s role with the Rebellion and convincing Hera to take the mission,
  • Upgrades made to the Phantom, and
  • A promotion for Hera.
