Starships Sabers and Scoundrels #21.5: Darth Maul and Doctor Aphra

Welcome to another Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships Sabers and Scoundrels. This week is without a new episode of Rebels. However, Dennis and Taxus are still in the mood to talk Star Wars. Therefore, they turn to the comics. Specifically they are looking at the latest offering from Marvel for Darth Maul and Doctor Aphra. These comic reviews contain spoilers.


Before Dennis and Taxus get to the comics, there is a little Star Wars trivia. Dennis has some leftover trivia from an appearance he and Taxus made on a recent appearance on another podcast. Therefore, he decides to try it out on Taxus. How will Taxus do?

Darth Maul Unleashed

The guys begin the comic discussion by reviewing issue one of Darth Maul. Set before the events of the The Phantom Menace, Darth Maul is restless. He grows tired hunting beasts, such as rathtars, across the galaxy. However, his master, Darth Sidious, refuses him permission to engage the Jedi. Will Darth Maul be contained? Also, can Darth Maul satisfy his thirst for a challenge elsewhere? Dennis and Taxus contemplate this and more as they discuss Darth Maul #1.

Doctor Aphra

At the conclusion of Darth Vader #25, Doctor Aphra narrowly survived her service to Darth Vader. Through her cleverness, she escaped his clutches. Now, Doctor Aphra strikes out with her droids, Triple Zero and BT-1, and the Wookiee mercenary, Black Krrsantan. However, she already finds herself in debt. To make matters worse, the university suspends her academic credentials. Without those, she cannot sell her archaeological finds. Who is responsible? The guys review the stories and characters of the Doctor Aphra series to date in this discussion.
