Starships Sabers and Scoundrels #19.5: Ghosts of Geonosis

Welcome to another Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships Sabers and Scoundrels. This week, SCubedPod focuses on the latest two-part episode of season three of Rebels: “Ghosts of Geonosis.” When a Rebel recon team fails to report back to the Alliance, Hera and the crew of the Ghost are sent to investigate. Their journey takes them to Geonosis to investigate the eradication of the Geonosians. During their mission, they encounter Saw Gerrera from The Clone Wars and Rogue One. This is a somewhat in-depth review that contains spoilers.

Saw Gerrera

First, the guys address the inclusion of Saw Gerrera. Darth Taxus recently discovered a possible connection between the events of Rebels and Rogue One. Does the episode clarify that connection? Also, the Rebellion had disavowed Saw by the time of Rogue One. Does this episode explain why that is? Might Saw Gerrera return in a future episode of Rebels?

The Geonosians and the Death Star

In “The Honorable Ones,” from season two, the crew of the Ghost arrived at Geonosis to find traces of an Imperial construction project. Does this episode offer any clues as to what the Empire was up to? What else, if anything, does this episode tell viewers about the Empire’s secret battle station?

Also, Hera and company discovered that Geonosis was deserted last season. A lone Geonosian remains. What clues can he offer the Rebellion as to the fate of his species? In addition, this Geonosian safeguards a precious treasure. Does this plot element relate to anything readers of Marvel’s comics may have seen before? We’ll discuss.

The Crew of the Ghost

In each Scoundrels Special Edition, we discuss the development of the crew. As expected, this episode is no different. The recent mid-season trailer promised big things for Sabine. What do they mean for Sabine, the Mandalorians, and Rebels going forward? Another topic of conversation is Ezra’s reaction to Saw Gerrera. Ezra continues to develop this season, and this episode advances his relationship to the Rebellion and the Force.

Bonus Silence Fools!

After the discussion of “Ghosts of Geonosis”, Dennis, and Taxus conduct a bonus edition of “Silence Fools!” to answer an email related to this episode. Finally, the guys will discuss other things to come in the second half of this season of Rebels as previewed in the mid-season trailer.

Thanks for listening to this Scoundrels Special Edition of Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels.
