Podcast Stardust #262: The Bad Batch – Cornered – 0104

by Podcast Stardust

Fennec Shand has her sights set on Omega while the Bad Batch pays a visit to Pantora. Can the squad escape from the notorious assassin?

The Bad Batch, a/k/a Clone Force 99, are still on the run after the Republic has coalesced into the Empire. Without the resources of the Republic behind them, they are forced to fend for themselves. Despite their desire to lay low, they need to replenish their resources first. So, they head to Pantora in the hopes of selling some explosives to get the credits they need. However, the notorious bounty hunter Fennec Shand is on their trail and she specifically has Omega in her sights. Will the Bad Batch successfully evade her? We break down “Cornered” on this episode of the podcast.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • A brief history of Pantora in Star Wars,
  • Omega’s intelligence versus her real world experience,
  • The return of Fennec Shand after her debut in The Mandalorian,
  • What Fennec Shand’s mission is and who she is working for,
  • The influence of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones on this episode,
  • Echo being mistaken for a droid,
  • The introduction of a new astromech: Clink, and
  • Cameos of tooka cats and voorpaks.
