Podcast Stardust #300: Rogue One, Part 8 – Commandeering the Shuttle

by Podcast Stardust

It is the 300th episode of Podcast Stardust! We are celebrating with the next installment of our Rogue One series as Cassian Andor and Jyn Erso steal a shuttle and head to Scarif.

It is time to celebrate 300 episodes of Podcast Stardust! What better way to do that than with another episode of our series examining Rogue One? Jyn Erso has an opportunity to present what she knows about the Death Star to the Rebellions council of leaders. However, she meets a very hostile audience. When they won’t approve a mission to Scarif, she and Cassian Andor take matters into their own hands. They start by commandeering the shuttle they stole from Eadu.

On this fully armed and operational episode, Mark Sutter from Idiot’s Array and Tarkin’s Top Shelf joins us and we discuss:

  • Mark’s favorite character and seen from Rogue One,
  • Jyn Erso presenting the case to attack Scarif to the Rebel Council on Yavin IV,
  • Cassian Andor rallying a group of volunteers to join Jyn’s mission to Scarif,
  • Commandeering the Zeta class shuttle for the mission,
  • Bodhi Rook adopting the call sign “Rogue One,”
  • Bail Organa and Mon Mothma’s realization that war with the Empire is inevitable,
  • The arrival of “Rogue One” at Scarif,
  • Jyn Erso’s speech to the troops on the shuttle, and
  • Cassian Andor’s plans to retrieve the Death Star plans.
