Podcast Stardust #353: Rebels – Iron Squadron – 0308

by Podcast Stardust

The Rebels attempt to convince a group of freedom fighters that they overmatched in their fight against the Empire when they come to their rescue.

When the Rebels arrive at Mykapo to assist in the evacuation of the planet, they find a ship crewed by three teenagers. Head strong, these teenagers are taking the fight to the Empire, but they vastly overestimate their abilities while underestimating the Empire. The crew of the Ghost tries to get them to leave, but their leader, Mart Mattin, won’t listen. This necessitates a rescue mission later. Can the Rebels save the members of the Iron Squadron? Thanks for downloading another episode of Podcast Stardust.
