Starships Sabers and Scoundrels #22.5: Legacy of Mandalore

Welcome to another Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships Sabers and Scoundrels. This week, SCubedPod focuses on the latest episode from season three of Rebels: “Legacy of Mandalore.” After recovering the Darksaber and learning how to use it in the last couple of episodes, Sabine returns with the weapon to Krownest. Can she recruit her family to join the Rebellion?


Before Dennis and Taxus get to this episode of Rebels, they decide to get into the Mandalorian spirit with some trivia. Each of the guys compiled some questions for the other. Who is the bigger Mandalorian expert and how will they do?

Return to Krownest

The story begins with Sabine, Ezra, Kanan, Fenn Rau and Chopper arriving at Krownest. However, the Mandalorians greet her by opening fire. Only after revealing herself to be Sabine Wren does do the hostilities cease. “Trials of the Darksaber” revealed why Sabine fled the Mandalorians. This episode reveals how deep Sabine’s conflict with her people runs.

Family Feud

Sabine’s relationship with her family complicates her return to Krownest. A deep division with her family emerged when Sabine left the Mandalorians. After all, the Empire employed the weapon Sabine created against Mandalore. While Sabine took refuge with the crew of the Ghost, her family struggled to regain their honor. For example, her brother currently serves Gar Saxon. In addition, Ursa carefully balances loyalty to Gar Saxon with family obligations. Furthermore, Gar Saxon imprisoned Sabine’s father. How does Sabine’s return impact their struggle?
