Welcome to episode 30 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels. On this episode, Dennis and Darth Taxus discuss Darth Bane: Path of Destruction as they kick off their summer book club. However, there are other things to get to first. So, get ready for episode 30: Discussion of Destruction.

Recent Star Wars News

As always, the guys discuss recent Star Wars news. As withe past few weeks, Star Wars had relatively little news. However, Annie Liebovitz’s pictures for The Last Jedi debuted in Vanity Fair. Therefore, Dennis and Taxus discuss the details of their favorite pictures. In addition, they analyze some of the plot points and details concerning The Last Jedi and the The Force Awakens revealed in the accompanying article.

Discussion of Destruction

Dennis and Taxus recently announced the formation of a Scoundrels Summer Book Club. Regular listeners know how fond they are of the Darth Bane trilogy. Therefore, Jay Krebs joins the guys as they discuss the first book in the trilogy: Path of Destruction. This discussion includes all the major plot points, so listeners are hereby warned.

The discussion begins with Bane’s past on Apatros when he was a man named Dessel. The discussion follows Dessel to Kashyyyk and Trandosha then to Korriban. Once he arrives at Korriban, Dessel sheds his name. He becomes Bane, and the story dives into the Dark Side of the Force.

Silence Fools!

Finally, it wouldn’t be an episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels without some listener feedback in “Silence Fools!” There is a twist to Silence Fools! this episode. There is not one, but two Silence Fools! segments. Listener feedback starts with Darth Bane: Path of Destruction emails and tweets. After that, the guys read tweets related to favorite Star Wars video games, and an email about favorite lightsabers.

Thanks for tuning into episode 30 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Discussion of Destruction.
