#03. The Last Command — Thrawn and On and On (A Star Wars Literary Podcast)

1 Jul

The trilogy ends, but the saga lives forever!  In our third episode, Kate, Rachael, and Shaun conclude the Thrawn Trilogy with a discussion of Timothy Zahn’s The Last Command and a side discussion about the origins of Rey and Rogue One (our hopes and our fears).  We discuss the politics of the narrative, explore the development of the characters, new and old, examine the politics and underlying meanings in the trilogy as a whole, the number of Ewoks found on Endor, and so much more!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Now for a poll!  If you want to help us pick the next book or series to read in the Star Wars Legends/Expanded Universe, vote on the poll below (future polls for the New Canon/Expanded Universe will also go live in the future).  Hooray for choices!
