Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #74: Lightsaber Duels – Part 2

by Starships Sabers and Scoundrels

On episode 74, the Scoundrels conclude their quest to determine the best lightsaber duel from all the Star Wars movies.

After completing the first round of the lightsaber duel bracket in episode 73, the Scoundrels now turn to the conclusion in episode 74: Lightsaber Duels – Part 2. The road to the finals isn’t easy, and the Scoundrels each take turns struggling with which fight is worthy of advancing. Ultimately, a winner is selected though.

Welcome to episode 74 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Lightsaber Duels Part 2. The Scoundrels have their work cut out for them as they determine the best lightsaber duel from the Star Wars movies. However, there is news to get to first.

Star Wars News

Most of this week’s news focuses on Star Wars Celebration Chicago. The Scoundrels discuss:

  • The first announcement of additional guests for Celebration that includes Ahsoka Tano herself, Ashley Eckstein,
  • A second round of guests for Celebration that includes the original wookiee and everyone’s favorite twi-lek,
  • A third round of guests for Celebration as foretold by a dark disturbance in the Force, and
  • The potential for K-2SO to show up in the Cassian Andor series that is in development.

The Lightsaber Duels – Part 2

Once the news is done, the Scoundrels return to their lightsaber bracket. Episode 73 saw the conclusion of the first round. In comparison to the decisions in episode 74, those were easy. The Scoundrels start by finding the best lightsaber duel from each trilogy and then conclude with naming a champion. There is plenty of discussion and debate on this episode, and picking the best lightsber duel isn’t easy.

  • Respond to feedback from their page on the RetroZap Discord server,
  • Discuss the results of the last Twitter poll from episode 73, and
