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!
