Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #33: Orbalisks and Holocrons – The Rule of Two Review
Welcome to episode 33 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels. On this episode, Dennis and Darth Taxus discuss Darth Bane: Rule of Two as they kick off their summer book club. However, there are other things to get to first. So, get ready for episode 33: Discussion of Destruction.
Recent Star Wars News
As always, the guys discuss recent Star Wars news. As with past few weeks, Star Wars is a popular topic. That trend continues this week. Therefore, Dennis and Taxus dive in with a discussion of the announcement that Ron Howard is the new director of the untitled Han Solo movie. In addition, they briefly discuss some of the announcements concerning the Star Wars presence at Disney parks and The Last Jedi Behind the Scenes feature from D23.
With July coming to an end, it is time for another edition of Skystalking. Taxus combed the internet and discovered where all the Star Wars celebrity convention appearances for August. He shares all the news in this episode’s edition of Skystalking.
Orbalisks, Holocrons, and the Rule of Two
The first installment of the Scoundrels Summer Book Club was a huge success when the guys discussed Darth Bane: Path of Destruction in episode 30. It is time for the sequel. Therefore, Jay Krebs joins the guys as they discuss the second book in the trilogy: Rule of Two. This discussion includes all the major plot points, so listeners are hereby warned.
The discussion begins with the aftermath of the Thoughtbomb on Russan. In the wake of his victory, Bane reformed the Sith Order and has a new apprentice. Then he discovers an unexpected treasure in the Sith camp. Thereafter, he tasks his apprentice with proving herself worthy as he explores an ancient Sith tomb. Once the prize is his, Bane must impress upon his apprentice the necessity of the Rule of Two and the ways of the Sith.
Finally, it wouldn’t be an episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels without some listener feedback in “Silence Fools!” The discussion of the best comedic moments from Star Wars with Joey Letson in episode 31 proved popular. A few listeners shared their favorite comedic moments and the guys responded.
