Welcome to episode 62 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Thrawn, Tigers, and Television. On this episode, Dennis, Jay, and Darth Taxus return from their summer breaks.

So, it is time to get back into Star Wars. This is a busy episode that features a review of Thrawn: Alliances, an announcement of fundraising efforts to support some Star Wars-named tigers, and discussion of recent Star Wars television news.


On a past episode of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels, we shared news of  Kylo Ren, the white tiger rescued by In-Sync Exotics. Kylo now has a friend in Kenobi. Further getting into the Star Wars spirit, In-Sync plans to build a new Millennium Falcon shaped pool for these two young tigers. SCubedPod is supporting their efforts. On episode 62, find out how you can donate to the cause and possibly win some cool Star Wars prizes for your support.
