Podcast Stardust #302: The High Republic #5-7

by Podcast Stardust

Avar Kriss forms an uneasy alliance between the Jedi and the Hutts to fight the Drengir while Keeve Trennis and Sskeer discover the Great Progenitor.

In the era of The High Republic, the Jedi are spread thin between fighting the Drengir on the frontier and preparing for the Republic Fair. As a result, Jedi Master Avar Kriss takes advantage of a bad situation to form an alliance with the Hutts to fight the Drengir. As the conquest against the Drengir rages on, Jedi Knight Keeve Trennis looks after her former master, the Trandoshan Jedi Master Sskeer. Together, the two of them find the location of the Great Progenitor and a possible way to end the fight. Join us on episode 302 of Podcast Stardust as we discuss the events of Marvel’s The High Republic, issues 5-7.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Avar Kriss’s decision to make an alliance with the Hutts,
  • The appearance of the Hutts in The High Republic,
  • Avar Kriss and Stellan Gios’s disagreement about allying with the Hutts,
