Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #73.3: The New Trooper

by Starships Sabers and Scoundrels

On episode 73.3, the Scoundrels discuss Kaz undercover as a stormrooper in “The New Trooper.”

Although Captain Doze protests the First Order’s continued occupation of Colossus Station, the stormtroopers are no closer to leaving in the latest from Resistance. First Order over zealousness gives Kaz an opportunity to gain intel on the First Order as Kaz goes undercover in “The New Trooper.”

Welcome to episode 73.3 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: The New Trooper. On this episode, the Scoundrels reconvene for a discussion of the latest episode of Resistance: “The New Trooper.” In this episode, Kaz pulls a classic Star Wars method of going undercover to spy on the First Order. How successful is he?

The New Trooper

On this episode, Dennis, Jay, and Taxus discuss the following:

  • The First Order’s pretext for remaining on Colossus Station;
  • Kaz’s ability, or lack thereof, to impersonate a stormtrooper;
  • Tam and Kaz’s disagreement about the First Order;
  • How the First Order manages their stormtroopers; and
  • The ramifications of this episode for Resistance and the events of the sequel trilogy.

“The New Trooper” includes some classic Star Wars storytelling. The Scoundrels are eager to discuss it. Thanks for joining us for episode 73.3 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: The New Troopers.
