Podcast Stardust #245: Rebels – Homecoming – 0216

by Podcast Stardust

Hera leads the team to Ryloth to capture an Imperial carrier. Can they trust Hera’s father, Cham Syndulla, to help them get the job done?

Phoenix Squadron continues to lose ships and pilots during their raids on Imperial supplies. This ends up creating a need, now more than ever, for a base for this Rebel cell. However, there is no solution in sight to that problem, so Commander Sato recommends that Hera and the crew of the Ghost steal an Imperial carrier located near the Twi’lek world of Ryloth. Naturally, Hera knows people there…most notably, her father. Can Hera and the Rebels work with Cham Syndulla to steal this ship and dedicate to the Rebel cause? We discuss this on episode 245 of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational episode of the podcast, we discuss:

  • How Hera’s outlook on fighting the war differs from Cham’s,
  • Why Kanan is flustered when he meets Cham Syndulla,
  • The return of Numa, but she is all grown up now,
  • The history of the Imperial carrier in Legends, and
  • Hera’s history on Ryloth, her natural accent, and why she left
