Spoilers abound, it’s round two of Age of Rebellion. What troopers hit the mark and which ones need to go back to target practice? Read on for the full recap of everything AFTER the Age of Rebellion: Special issue.
[SECURE TRANSMISSION FROM THE WESTERN REACHES]
Intel reports an elite group, unknown in number, who report directly to one of the highest-ranked Imperials in the Western Reaches. Seemingly overnight, General Kraviss and his elite forces, nicknamed the Ghost Division, have taken the farming planet of Kufra and dug in using the ancient palace as a base of operations. Status of the queen is unknown, but we’ve been able to dig up some dirt on a few of Kraviss’s lackeys. . .
Remember when Star Wars used to be fun? Your Supreme Leader does, and he’s here to remind you to lighten up and enjoy goofy space dramas.
Missed part one? Check it out here. Long story short, how would the Saga change if Darth Vader suddenly died partway through?

Think back to the last time you watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace. We aren’t here to talk about how much you liked or disliked it. It could be 1999, it could be ten minutes ago. I don’t care. Actually, I want to talk about a curious throwaway line. Anakin Skywalker and his mother Shmi are sitting at dinner, giving some insight to their guests Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks, and Queen of Naboo, Padme Amidala, about life on Tatooine. A sandstorm rustles and wails outside, and then Anakin gives some insight into the cruel methods used to keep slaves in line. He mentions a transmitter inside his body (as well as all local slaves) that will detonate if the slave attempts to escape.
