Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #41.5: Kindred and Crawler Commandeers


Welcome to episode 41.5 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Kindred and Crawler Commandeers. On this Scoundrel’s Special Edition, Jay, Dennis, and Darth Taxus discuss the Rebels’ recovery of the hypderdrive and their escape from the Empire and the impending attack on Lothal. First, they start with “Kindred.” When Ezra, Zeb, and Jai Kell attempt a recovery of the hyperdrive, Thrawn’s Noghri agent Rukh tracks them down and attacks. Even though they get the hypderdrive to Hera, they still face Imperial pursuit. That is when Governor Pryce sends in the TIE bombers and the loth-wolves show up.

Once they escape the Empire with the aid of the wolves, Ezra, Kanan, Zeb, and Sabine need a way of contacting Hera and the Rebellion High Command in “Crawler Commandeers.” Although the Empire jammed transmission off the surface, Sabine finds a local contact. Upon investigating, they discover an ore crawler with a communications array that might just solve their problems. However, a Trandoshan captain and foreman stand in their way. Plus, Vizago, their scoundrel friend, is aboard. Meanwhile, on Yavin IV, Hera campaigns for an attack on the TIE Defender factory on Lothal.

The discussion in this episode includes the abilities of the Loth-Wolves and their connection to Kanan and the planet, Kanan and Hera’s growing relationship, Hera’s interaction with the Rebel High Command, and Rukh’s appearance. Who was pleased by this episode and who wanted more? Jay, Dennis, and Taxus discuss this and more in this Scoundrel’s Special Edition.
