Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels #75.1: Descent

On episode 75.1, the Scoundrels return to Resistance and Kaz’s attempt to summon allies against the First Order in “Descent.”

Things pick up on “Descent” where they left off after “The Disappeared.” Kaz, Yeager, and the crew are under arrest. After quick thinking by Bucket, they get away, but Tam stays behind and awaits interrogation by Agent Tierny. Kaz and Yeager know they need allies and help. The issue is: how do they get it? They concoct a plan to contact the Resistance, but the execution is dangerous. Everything unfolds in “Descent.”

Welcome to episode 75.1 of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels: Descent. On this episode, the Scoundrels are discussing the latest episode of Resitance. Kaz and Yeager desperately call for help while Tam faces interrogation from the First Order. They have a plan, but it comes with great cost.


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

  • Tam finally knows the truth about Kaz, but how will she take it?
  • Doza’s character arc over season one as he graduated from considering support from the First Order to working against their occupation.
  • The arrival of a new character: Agent Tierny.
  • Neeku’s about face with regards to taking everything literally where Kaz’s role as a Resistance spy is concerned.
  • The plan to submerge Colossus station.
  • The return of Kragan’s pirates.

The Scoundrels always enjoy a fun discussion of a good episode of Resistance, and they are confident you’ll enjoy the discussion.
