Podcast Stardust #335: Rogue One, Part 11 – Aligning the Tower

by Podcast Stardust

In part 11 of our series on Rogue One, we discuss Bodhi, Chirrut, and Baze’s efforts to activate the master switch so a message can be sent to Admiral Raddus.

The battle at Scarif rages on as the Rebellion desperately tries to hold the Empire at bay while Jyn Erso’s team retrieves the plans to the Death Star. This is the climax of the film, and our heroes begin to suffer losses as they complete their contributions to the mission. While the Rebels carry out their mission, Director Krennic takes command of the Imperial forces and heads straight into a confrontation that he doesn’t yet fully understand. Join us for part 11 of our year-long series covering Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

We are joined by Becca Benjamin from Tarkin’s Top Shelf and Kanata’s Castle for this discussion.

In this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Becca’s overall thoughts about Rogue One and favorite characters and moments from Rogue One,
  • The importance of Bodhi Rook in this story and how he grew from the beginning to the end of the film,
  • Cassian and Jyn’s escape from the data vault,
  • Baze and Chirrut taking on the Death Troopers to activate the master switch,
  • The battle in space between the Rebellion and the Empire,
  • How the Rebellion brings down the shield gate,
  • The fate of Bodhi, Chirriut, and Baze, and
  • Jyn’s confrontation with Director Krennic.
